  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. 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. 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.

  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. Restriction on participants in a chat group !!

    Hello Team, Recently we moved from CISCO Jabber to MS Teams and 1 restriction we found here is that in a chat group, the maximum number of participants is restricted to 50. For any organization (atleast here), we have more than 50 people who are needed to be in a chat group and not channels, as that is separate option. I would suggest to increase that number to a significant number as this is used at enterprise level where we can have more than 50 people working and required in the chat group.

    Also, if a chat is needed to…

  6. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. 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?

  10. reputation

    I would like to be able to enable in a specific channel a reputation system.
    When a person anwer a question, others should be able to:
    - Upvote the answer
    - Mark the answer as accepted (this should be shown at the top)
    - Downvote an anser

    All of this actions should build up a scoring system and the users more active shoul be rewarded with badges or other visual indicators. This will help people to get engaged and help colleagues.

    This is only part of what I would really like to have in teams, a system like stack overflow,…

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  14. status on the taskbar is confusing

    When a chat is open I can see the name of person on the task bar combined with my status of presence. It's confusing, coz I thought it's this person's status.
    And please add labels with number of new messages on the taskbar.

  16. Mention Organizational Users Regardless of Team

    I would like to be able to have a user see (tag) an occasional post within a public team that they are not a member of, or at least be able to export a post to share in another team/channel.

    It doesn't make sense for every person in our organization to be a part of every team or department, receiving constant notifications and seeing all of their channels, but there seems to be no other way to work cross departmentally on occasional issues. We do not do one off project work so creating a team for every "task" or plan…

  18. Org chart inverted

    Display the Org Chart View from the bottom up. ie inverted. This would match organizations that have adopted this model of representing the company structure
