  1. Filter OCS users from appearing in the Teams Peoplepicker

    When you have a mixed environment rollout where some users need to remain using OCS we need to be able to filter them out from Teams in the people picker.

  2. Right now, the status has no value as people do not change it often. It's frustrating because it doesn't provide real information!

    It also gives you a negative impression of those who are always away or busy, even if subconsciously. I think you have the potential to make something so significantly better with this small change! Perhaps a timer for away status based on movement/keystrokes, or synced to calendar appointments.

  3. Make Teams more fun and less horribly corporate and evil

    In corporate settings, still allow me to be choose a friendly display name (but keep all the corporate **** attached to my profile). Or at least allow me to truncate my name to First and Last Initial, e.g., Bill J. or Sarah B.

  4. Add Members from Address Book

    There is a similar feature in Yammer, where I can add members from an existing Address Book in a CVS format. Let us do that in Teams too!

  5. Customize Availablity

    I would like the ability to change my availability to a custom message. We have people who are working but in a different location or offsite. This ability would allow people to better recognize "how" available someone is.

  6. Mention people of the company but not included to the team

    Sometimes we need to ask something to a person who is not member of the team. It could be vey helpful if we can mention a person on a conversation, that person could read and answer the message but not see anything else.

  7. This Site - Post dates on MS Responses

    Post dates of MS responses on search. When I filter topics I would like to see when the last entry was without going into the topic. When MS says "Working on It" I would like to see how long they've been working on it without having to open the each topic.

  9. Teams user availability status does not show up in outlook.

    Skype was linked with Outlook to show Skype user status of everyone in an email. With Skype not signed in,outlook does not shows user status from MS Teams. One has to go manually in MS Teams and search for the persons in email to know their availability status. This feature of skype should be helpful to have in teams also.
    I have attached 2 screenshots - 1. Showing User availability when Skype was signed in and 2. Showing User availability blanked out when Skype was logged out but Teams was signed in.

  10. Show person status "like in a meeting" and "in a call" with out hover over contact.

    I would be nice to have an indication on the contact list next to the name "in a call" or "in a meeting". Right now the only way to find out is to hover over the name in the chat. Because of that a lot of colleagues trying to call person already on the call. Not very ergonomic design of the interface.

  12. Status description of contact in header

    Additional field or line under name of contact of specific status. Normally we based status on the colored dot on lower right of photo, but it would be a lot helpful if you could also include "In a call" or "In a meeting" below the name of contact for better communication. Thanks. Appreciate if you could consider this.

  14. problem with teams status

    hello there, i have a question in regards to MS teams, why is my status always in red / busy? even though there are no meetings going on in my calendar, Is there an option to edit settings so that i am in control of the status?

    i would like a feature for being in control, like skype for business had.

    for example


    • sync my status with outlook CHECK OR NOT

    • set away status after XX minutes CHECK OR NOT

    shouldn't be that hard no?

    thanks,
    Gabrio

  17. disable offline messages

    Would be nice to be able to disable the ability for people to message/IM you if you're offline! That's what email is for.

  19. 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.

  20. 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.
