  1. Presence "Off work" in Teams for mobile.

    There is presence options "Off work" in Teams for mobile, but is should be the same as the Teams for Desktop.

  2. Ability to add groups within groups under contacts.

    Many times we have different departments within our company that could be saved as a group under contacts. However my contacts in one group could have vastly different work. Person X in Group1 could be much better to ask about Product Z than person Y might be.

    If I could add a group within another group me and my colleagues could avoid fracturing our contact list so massively and make it way more effective. The main group could be named "Department 1" and the subgroup within the main group could be "Product Z"

    This is not possible today and it…

  3. Detailed information needed for Teams presence

    I would like to have a public information for the presence activity deference based on the event creation method. Specifically, I need detailed information for the differences depending on the following scenarios in case when setting the Register Teams as the chat app for Office option in Teams, or when setting co-existing mode to island mode in Teams admin center.
    1. An event is created from Outlook on the web
    2. An event is created from Outlook client
    3. A Teams meeting is created from Microsoft Teams
    4. A Teams meeting is created from Outlook client

  4. 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.

  5. Hide internal users’ icons from external users’ screen in Microsoft Teams

    *English follows Japanese
    ■Title(件名):
    Microsoft Teams において、外部のユーザーには、内部ユーザーのアイコンが表示されないようにしたい。

    Hide internal users’ icons from external users’ screen in Microsoft Teams


    ■Description(内容):
    Microsoft Teams では匿名ユーザーおよびゲストユーザーを招待可能であるかと存じます。その際、外部のユーザーには内部のユーザーのアイコンが閲覧不可 (デフォルトで設定されていたアイコンになるなど) となるよう機能の拡充を希望します。
    アイコンには本人の顔写真が利用されている場合が多く、個人情報の漏洩を懸念しております。

    In Microsoft Teams, we are allowed to invite anonymous users or guest users. Which means those external users can also see the internal users’ icons that might include internal users’ head shots or other personal information.

    To prevent the leakage of personal information, I hope the feature will be introduced to restrict external users from seeing internal users’ icons (displaying the default icon instead).

  7. Visibility of teams custom status messages

    knowing your other team members status (ESP. CUSTOM STATUS MESSAGES) ARE CRITICAL for the way we utilize this application at our business. It is an annoyance you have to hover over someone's icon/status color/etc. to see their custom status message. It would be fantastic if you could always see what is says. Instead of seeing what the last message was (under the chats tab), you see their custom status message.

  8. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. Be Right Back turns off automatically when it detects mouse or keyboard activity.

    In Skype for Business, there is a useful feature where your status will go back to available from 'Be Right Back', when the mouse or keyboard is used again. This would be useful in Teams.

  12. Need a way to bulk add multiple Team members at once by copying a string of email IDs (separated by a delimiter)

    Need a way to bulk add multiple Team members at once by copying a string of email IDs (separated by a delimiter) ;
    At present I have to individually add each and every email Id separately; that's very very time consuming;
    I am surprise Microsoft failed to think about this in the first place.

  13. 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.

  14. 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…

  17. All ability to modify Contact information in Teams Client

    When viewing contacts in Teams, it would be great to be able to directly edit the team, for example, if the contact / speeddial is just shown as an email address - be good to be able to edit the details and save back

  18. Display who has read a message on a channel or private chat

    Many collaboration tools, such as WebEx Teams, display an icon for the people that have read a message on a Team chat (channel) or private messages.

    It helps people know that your message has been read.

  19. Groups Contact list

    The ability to add AAD or AD synced Mail Enabled Security groups or Office 365 Groups in contacts. This functionality is available in S4B. It needs to be added to Teams so contacts are dynamically added in Teams contacts list under groups like departments.

  20. Link contact groups from Outlook to Teams

    Ensure that contact groups that have been created in Outlook are visible / can be used in Teams. Now I have to re-create certain groups in teams and instead would just like to copy from Outlook
