  2. Skype for Business shows available even if client is not running

    At the moment it seems that if you are running Teams client, but have Skype for Business client turned off, Skype for Business is still showing the available status. I suspect this issue appeared with the unified presence.

    I would expect SfB showing offline, if I have that client off. At least until the co-existence is working properly that Skype messages would reach me at Teams. Now I'm receiving "you've missed a conversation" emails, because I'm actually not online on Skype for Business.

  5. 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.

  6. Allow setting idle time to avoid constantly appearing "Away"

    Now that we are working from home, we need to appear as available all time, or at least for more time that 3 minutes even when you are not actively using the computer.

  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.

  8. Filter the Contacts list by status

    As a team member, I would like the ability to filter the Teams contacts list by status so that I can see only those team members who are presently listed as "Available" for immediate consultations.

  10. Better presentations

    Today it is very boring to listen to a ppt presentation over teams since the presentation is the tool and the presenter is not in focus. A presentation should be a support to a presenter. I want to have the option to be able to appear like the attached picture to be a more active part of the presentation.

  11. status

    Show more details in Busy Status beside the name as was the case with Skype for Business.
    1. on a call
    2. in a meeting
    3. in a conference call
    Failure to show the detailed status beside the name, will give the impression that the person might by busy but still available for quick questions. Instead of providing the message sender the option to be courteous when the receiver status clearly shows on a conference call without having to hover over the name.

  12. Integrate TEAMS with Skype status

    Would it be possible to integrate TEAMS with Skype status so when I'm in a meeting on TEAMS it shows as 'red' in Skype too.

  17. Show Out of Office Message Even When Signed Out

    We've noticed when users are out of the office, and set their message in Outlook, it will carry over to Teams, as long as the user is signed into Teams somewhere. If they "sign out" of Teams, which someone might do when they leave for vacation, they show "offline" and do not reflect the Out of Office. It would be nice to show them as "offline" but still show the Out of Office message so the sender knows when they will be back.

  19. Isolate the presence status from other services to show certain status

    I would like to always show certain status (Available or Busy) as my presence regardless of the presence info from other services such as calendar.

  20. 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.
