  1. Showing Status with a text

    Status of a person should be shown with a text like In a meeting, busy like that.Right now we have to hover over the icon to know this because its difficulat to differentiate between busy and in a meeting status. Other status are easy to identify. Or we can give unique colors to all the status.

  2. Laat de gebruiker zelf kiezen na hoeveel tijd hij/zij als afwezig weergegeven wordt.

    Ik word vrij snel als afwezig weergegeven wanneer ik even niet aan de computer actief ben. Ik ben op dat moment wel nog beschikbaar, maar werk bijvoorbeeld aan documenten, maak tussendoor een praatje met een collega,... Ik zou graag zelf kiezen om langer beschikbaar te staan zodat mijn collega’s zien dat ze mij wel kunnen opbellen...

  3. Change the name of MS Teams to almost anything else

    I don't know if you guys were on drugs when you named this app but i can't describe the frustration when i'm having a discussion with colleagues about their teams but not their MS teams and then creating other teams but is this real life or their actual physical team etc. this is daily. Just idiotic. just causes unnecessary confusion

  4. Currently not implemented presence states

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):
    現時点で実装されていないプレゼンスについて
    Currently not implemented presence states


    ■Description(内容):
    Microsoft Teams にて公開情報には記載されておりますが、現時点で実装されていないプレゼンスがあり、いつ頃実装されるのか不明のため、実装時期の目安を記載してほしい。

    There are presence states listed in publicly available information which are not currently implemented, and since it is unknown when they will become available, we would like you to make that information available.

  5. Using the Teams phone app and the Windows installed app

    I would like to leave Teams running on my work PC all the time. I am fine with the way it handles status automatically: when I'm typing/mousing, it says I'm available. And when I lock my computer, it switches to Away.

    That's all good.

    But I would also like to have the Teams app on my phone. I'd like having/using that app to never make me available. In other words, if I decide to open it on my phone at 11 PM to check messages, I'd like to continue appearing Away. But when I come back to my work laptop…

  7. Show presence when adding people to an existing call

    When adding additional users to an existing call, it would be extremely useful to see their presence status. Right now I have to go to "Chat" and search for the person to see their status before calling them. It would be very helpful to be able to see someone is away or busy right from the add participants interface.

  9. Disable pop-up notifications in Do Not Disturb mode

    I would like to disable pop-up notifications while I set Do Not Disturb mode, so that I can focus better without distraction from other users, exactly as it used to be with S4B.

  10. Allow us to set our status to stay the same for an allotted time, instead of automatically synching to our calendars

    Many times when I am working but nothing is scheduled on my calendar it will automatically set my teams status to "out of office" or "offline" which makes me looks like I am not working, even though it is that I don't have appointments on my MS calendar. This is a bad look for Corporate.

  11. Better marketing and name recognition

    Our university is using Teams more and more, but it still remains awkward to invite or request communication via the app. "Chat" is too generic, as are "Calls." For example, if I am requesting a meeting with someone, I can offer Zoom (which is recognizable and obvious as to what I'm asking) or <awkwardly fumbles for easy description> 'Microsoft Teams video call.' It's way too much and doesn't flow. I request you rename the features to something more catchy and exclusive, or start advertising a way to phrase it that will become common knowledge (maybe TeamsChat or something better). Also,…

  12. Having the app in background or on another monitor doesn't mean I am away

    If I have the teams app in the background or on another monitor does not mean I am away. Even if i don't move the mouse for some time does not usually mean I am away. Maybe I do other things, but still sitting at my desk and working.
    The status should only change to "away" if i lock my computer, because then I am really "away". Maybe there should be a way to configure the time after when the status changes and one of these options should be "only when locking the computer".

  13. Status based on Skype Status

    If we are sharing something on Skype and the Skype status shows up as busy, the Teams status should also show up as busy automatically. Can this be done?

  16. Automate Availability status; Available post login, Away after signout, Be right back after 30 mins of inactivity

    Automate Availability status; Available post login, Away after signout, Be right back after 30 mins of inactivity.

    My organisation is not staffed by full-time 9-5 employees. We are volunteers and have varying work cycles.

    Like others, I forget to update my status. Surely, a login means you are available? And Sign-out means you aren't and "away." Inactivity for 30 mins means your are temporarily away? These can be automated and not manual updates?

  19. Additional Settings for the Status Option

    Currently the only setting available for Status is the ability to change whether you'd like individuals to see your comment or for you to see theirs. Would love an additional setting where I could determine when the status switches from Active to Away and set a time limit. For example, change status to Away when user has been idle for XX minutes. Currently, if I'm working in another program my status will switch to Away even if I'm still at my computer working. This gives the impression to my boss that I'm not actively working. Another option would be to…

  20. status option

    There should be an option for the status as "offline" or "show offline" so that people don't keep bothering you when you're done for the day.
