  1. Visibility of Presence from External Contacts

    Microsoft has opted the whole organization to use Microsoft Teams. The migration of contacts was great but presence are not visible for people outside the organization. It has been working with Skype, it would be better if Microsoft Teams works the same too.

  2. Chat complications

    Skype is better. When I click on chat, all the contacts get extended. It makes it difficult to find the right person. Every time I need to Chat, I need to close every groups.

  3. better status in chat

    At the top of the chat window where it says the name, it doesn't clearly display information about what they are doing. It would be nice to have a status, next meeting @, location

  4. Custom away message... Like Skype.

    Skype has an option to "set your location". A similar option in MS Teams would be a great boon.

  7. hide free busy for external partenaire

    Hide free/busy for external partenaire.
    The goal of this idea is to hide the user's free busy for external partenaire when you do a federation with a partenaire. Without this option we can't make any federation with any partenaire.

  9. Separate Out of Office status from Presence (like Skype)

    Allow users to offer their presence of choice while keeping the Out of Office indicator persistent.
    Users may have special projects / exceptions / reasons that require them to temporarily login and publish their status, while otherwise not in the office.
    In Skype, a user can login and show available for a quick interval - without having to disable their Out of Office in order to extend that presence.
    This dual context would be useful in Teams.

  10. The status icon in teams is updated much too slowly

    I think you need to approach the status indicator in teams differently. This is a feature that is very important and I don't think it's getting enough attention or focus.

    For example, it takes up to 5 minutes to show teams as "away" even if your computer is locked. If it is locked, you should immediately be shown as "away". Usually by the time someone will show as away (going to the bathroom or at a meeting) a lot of the time, I won't even know they were away until they have gotten back.

    This brings up another issue. The…

  13. Bigger Team Size **SuperUser**

    Right now the platform limits how many users in one team. Can we make the Team sizes larger than 100 please?

  14. Powershell support for call reporting.

    After speaking to support I was surprised this wasn't already a feature for the Skype/Teams reporting built-in to the portal itself.

    We currently have to browse to the portal and generate the same report day in and day out, clicking the same buttons, then formatting the same spreadsheet and finally cutting out the unnecessary data for customers.

    As you well know if the data was available through powershell via the CSonline command set then we could just pipe the data straight into a CSV and provide it straight to the customer, it would literally save a days work over a…

  15. Romania isn`t on billing list.

    As you can see, acording to https://www.xbox.com/en-US/live/countries , Romania isn`t on the billing list. It is such a shame for that of a big company to don`t have a european country. I can`t buy anything. I hope it willl be added very very soon because it is a very big problem for people in Romania.

  17. Full contact details and add to Outlook optiona

    Teams/Skype is often used as company phone/contact directory. Compare to Skype Teams provide less contact details and missing option Add contact to Outlook.

  18. Custom Active Directory fields in profile

    Make it possible to change or create a template for what fields show in the profile. Example, show mobilephone or NOT. Show office, department, job title, Initials... or not.

    I'm missing initials at the moment

  19. Contacts always visible in left sidebar

    Individuals are hidden in teams but should be prominent in the sidebar next to the teams option. Now they are hidden in the chat option under the contacts tab - very unintuitive and unproductive.

  20. It would be helpful for admins to see which users are following a channel. When tagging the whole channel, it just shows the total.

    I'll get a warning about the total number of followers I am about to notify, but there is not way to see who those followers are. As an admin, I want to know which users are following my team's channels.
