  1. 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…

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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

  6. 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

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

  12. チーム内のチャネル毎に別の権限がかけられない

    チーム内のチャネル毎に別の権限がかけられない
    チャネルを担当毎に分けても権限がかけられないため、通知など担当外にも送信されてしまうため、
    チャネル毎に照会権限者、投稿権限者の権限設定を細かくしたい。

  13. Add greenscreen background

    Add a feature to allow users to upload an image or animated gif to appear as a background behind their camera image. Using similar AI to the background blur effect, allow users to appear in front of a virtual background. This would be a fun feature that would drive engagement as well as allowing branding of corporate calls. Also, I want to appear with flames, dinosaurs and asteroids behind me to liven up conference calls.

  14. Tags = first name, last name

    Simply, when you tag people, it should be first name then last name. You call people by their first name right? Hey “Bill” can you help me out? Not - hey Gates, Bill can you help me out?

  17. 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.

  18. Options in the Teams Chat we can edit.

    Under Teams Chat I have a bunch of Contacts groups, but they are listed in alphabetical order I would like to be able to rearrange them.

    Also all groups open in expanded vs collapsed view is there a way to default this to collapsed view?

    Similar to the way you can in Skype.
