  1. Out of Office Outlook and Teams

    Migrate the processes such that if a person indicates Out of Office on Outlook, then we automatically (if you want) trigger the Teams profile to show the person as Away. And vice versa.

    And when "available" or "Out of Office Assistant is moved to Off", then each show the party as available.

    Justification

    Avoids having to set availability status as on or off on multiple platforms.

  2. remember last used "reset after" of "status duration"

    The second time I am using "status duration",
    the default values of "status" and "reset status after" will be the same as last time. ("reset status after" - will be relative, for example: tomorrow morning at 9AM )

  4. Manually set Inactive time out configuration

    There should be an option where I can specify time in seconds/minutes after which my status is automatically switched to away.

  5. The Last Seen Time would not refresh anymore when set the Status to Away

    I seems to remember when I set my status to Away, if there is any activity on Teams, the Last Seen Time will be refreshed.

    For example, I set my status to Away at 1000, if I had activity like replying at 1030, the Last Seen Time will refresh to 1030.

    But now, if I set my status to Away at 1000, if I had activity like replying at 1030, the Last Seen Time still remain at 1000.

    I seems to remember still able to see the Last Seen Time refresh around December.

  7. User video only visible for moderator and user can opt out of any videorecording.

    A common problem is that especially young people at school switch OFF video of themselves because the teacher or another collegue/student can record the video of them, This lead to a significant worse videomeeting for all. And for students this leads to 40-70% less learning since it is easy to loose focus when nobody see you! Less learning and less interesting. To solve this TEAMS could have a function so the user could OPT out of any videorecording, voice recording cold still be possible. It should also be possible to ONLY show video to the Moderator (the person who made…

  8. Stop setting my status to away without my consent!!!

    Just stop chaning my status! If I want to be set as away, I'll do it myself. I work in the financial services industry, so now when I'm reading through statements and making notes on paper, my status gets set to away after a few minutes, making it look like I'm not available. I should have the option to fix my status to whatever I want for as long as I want. We do pay for the service, after all. Do an internet search on how many people this little feature is actually annoying and come up with ideas that…

  9. Retain my Teams Status as I set

    I'm still trying to understand why Teams is changing the status to Away automatically. It is understood that it is designed to monitor the inactive time of the end user but the status should turn as Inactive as in Skype or just leave it with the status the end user sets. But neither of it seems to be happening and turning the status completely to Away is misleading us and the fellow users.

  10. Enable presence information for Skype users

    As per the Teams/Skype interop document (https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoftteams/teams-skype-interop) and real-life testing, "Teams users and Skype users can't see each other's presence.". Please correct that as not having presence defeats one of the primary advantages of Instant Messaging.

  11. integrate status with other online meeting platforms

    My status often goes to away on teams when I am sitting in a meeting presenting or observing on another platform (Zoom, etc.). Status should be set to calendar and not switch to away.

  12. Focus assist causing missed Teams Calls / Screen Shares

    Focusing - People missing calls due to focus issues. We have to train users to modify their focus assist settings.

    This seems be happening more often when people have set aside Focus Time in their calendar. Focus Assist seems to make it virtually impossible for someone to receive a share request from an individual if it is during their Focus Time.

    We have asked users to adjust their Focus Assist settings but it seems that this could be more intuitive and it should not need so much manual intervention.

    Can you look into this?

  14. New features to DND mode

    Add - Do Not Call (DNC) and Do Not Ping (DNP) under DND mode. This allows other users to more precisely understand the status and will definitely save the time in getting things done.

  17. Reset presence when user leaves meeting

    My team's weekly meeting is often over before the end of its calendar event. The problem is that everyone's presence is stuck on "busy" until the end of the calendar event. The real-world meeting is over, so that "busy" status is a lie. Suggest resetting each person's presence when they leave the meeting, and only showing "busy" if they rejoin.

  18. customize time until status changes to yellow

    You should be able to set the time of inactivity from the application before you are automatically changed from Available to Away. For instance, if I minimize the app because I am working on something, but am at my computer, my status turns to yellow, which makes people think I'm not available for chat, but I am. In Skype for Business, you could change the time of inactivity before that would occur.

  19. Status in Teams should change across all 365 apps

    When the status is changed in Teams, this should then reflect across all other Office 365 apps, Outlook for example and vice a versa.

    Currently, when the user changes their status in Teams, this does not change the status in other apps.
