  1. Add the status for "Off work."

    The "off work" status was available in Skype for Business. This helps a leader identify which team members are temporarily out of office - "Away" status vs. which are gone for the day "Off work."

  2. Add Option to Display Status in Contacts List

    In the settings, add an option which causes Status text to display adjacent to or beneath (maybe both) the name and picture of a Contact in your Favorites.

  3. When searching for users that are not Teams/SFB users, is there a way to determine whether the user is activated for Teams or not

    Issue Definition:
    When searching for users that are not Teams/SFB users, is there a way to determine whether the user is activated for Teams or not? Current status shows date 1/1/1 in Teams desktop client and Null in the Teams web client. These users have synced O365 accounts for other O365 products but are not enabled or have licenses for Teams.

    Main Ask: Would like to see an indicator that shows whether the user is a Teams user or not. This will help educate user base so they can identify which users can be interacted with.

  4. Provide an option within Settings to permanently collapse or hide the 'Suggested Contacts'. It is not useful.

    Offer the user an option to permanently collapse or hide the 'Suggested Contacts' that are constantly in an expanded view and must be collapsed with every login to Teams.

  5. Presence across Tenants

    Have presence across tenants. I am working with some users in one Teams site in one tenant but when I return to mine they cannot see my presence. Presence should be across tenant or configurable to be like that. Thanks

  7. A new presence icon would be useful, to reflect the status "in a call", currently a mouseover is needed

    A new presence icon would be useful, to reflect the status "in a call", currently a mouseover is needed to see, if a user is just busy or in a call.

  8. Tag for status updates

    Skype for Business supports tagging for status updates. It's a really buried feature, but one that is really helpful when trying to get in touch with someone. Would love to make this more easily available in Microsoft Teams to be better able to catch people as they become available (e.g. know when they come in in the morning, when they finish their current meeting, etc.).

  11. Assign Nick Names

    I would like to be able to assign nick names for team members. Example, i have several people with the same name on my team so it would be nice if i could change one to 'Boss man' and one to 'Java Guru' and so on.

  12. Set status to busy or invisible upon sign-in or sign-out completely

    We should always be able to set our status to busy or invisible. Sign in as invisible or sign in as always busy or DND instead of automatically signing in & being set as available. Should be able to sign out of Teams without it automatically sign out of Office 365 entirely.

  13. Ability not to show Disabled/Blocked users

    Presently users of "Blocked", "Unlicensed" and even Shared Mailboxes all show up in the search / can try to converse with them. Can these be filtered out / a setting to remove them from the teams search?

  17. More status options, custom status, and Out of Office

    MORE STATUS
    I like the status options in S4B, and so does my boss. It will be important to my boss before accepting the use of MS Teams widely to have a broader range of statuses. Missing statuses are:
    * In a meeting
    * In a conference call
    * In a call
    * Presenting
    * Be right back
    * Off Work

    Particularly of importance are "Be right back" and "off work". "Do not disturb" is probably sufficient for "in a meeting", "in a call" and "presenting". But, it sure is nice that S4B auto-detects those three statuses (for the most…

  18. Ability to Search for Microsoft Teams Contacts Using Main Search Bar

    Hello,

    Hope everyone is doing well.

    May we please suggest a Microsoft Teams feature to be able to synchronize Microsoft Outlook contacts with Microsoft Teams, Microsoft Teams contacts with Microsoft Outlook and to be able to search for both internal and external contacts (from address book), using the Microsoft Teams main search bar, located at the top center of the screen?

    Thank you very much.

  19. Real time Location tracking

    Many Teams have team members out on site or in various locations. It would be great to be able to get real time live location data allowing say an admin or head office or Team coordinator to direct the best resources to the right place and help colleagues help each other. Similar layout as say Life 360 and would be great if you could share directions with team members or a team leader can share a Route for the day or the week making real team integration.
