  1. Unify contacts from calls and chat tabs

    There are contacts in the Calls tab (A-Z come from Outlook contacts) and Contacts in Chat tab (from Skype). It would be better to unify those - why do we need both? Also favorites and Speed dial contacts could be the same?

    • status away

      Skype shows a status of how long someone is away so at a glance I can see where people are. I have to hover over each person's name in Teams to see same thing. It's not terrible but I hate it when features are taken away and there appears no way to enable them. Knowing how long a status is flipped is actually quite useful. The Skype designers apparently knew this.

      • Provide the ability to bulk add contact information for chat in Microsoft Teams

        *English follows Japanese
        ■Title(件名):
        Teams のチャットの連絡先を一括で登録したい

        Provide the ability to bulk add contact information for chat in Microsoft Teams
        ***************
        ■Description(内容):
        現在の Teams の機能では、チャットの連絡先に一人ずつメンバーを追加することはできるが、個々で操作をする必要があるため、手間がかかる。
        そのため、Office 365 で作成したグループのメンバーを一括で追加する機能や管理者が連絡先を一元管理する機能を要望します。

        It takes time and effort to add members to chat contact information one by one.

        For improvement of usability, provide the ability to bulk add multiple members in a group created in Office 365. Or allow admins to manage contact information centrally.

        Thank you for your consideration.

        • Allow removal of the suggested contacts

          It's insulting for an app to presume to have any clue who I should be contacting for any reason. Please allow removal of this non-feature

          • Make it possible to remove a contact from my "Suggested Contacts"

            I want to delete a user from the suggested contact list. For some reason a user that has left the organisation is still in the list. I just want to have the option to delete that person.

            • Out of office and available status at the same time

              In Skype for business when someone comes online while being out of office you can see that they are online (large green dot and small purple one). In Teams you can only see the out of office status with no apparent way to tell if they are online or offline.

              I think you should fix this so that the out of office is a bit separate from online/offline status as OoO could just mean you are working from home. If this is intentional I think it should be solved in a different way by adding the concept of invisible status…

                It seems my status is always available when I have the app active on my smartphone. I’d like to be able to control this

                • Go offline without logging out

                  I want to be able to set both the desktop and mobile apps to show me as offline but don’t leave me in a state where in need to fully authenticate again. I don’t want people to think I’m avIlable for chat if I’m actually off work. At least S4B remembered my credentials when I signed out go offline; Teams requires several steps to re-login with the same creds I used last time.

                    • Notify when session has expired and I need to log in again

                      Often I will open Teams from the notification area only to discover my session has expired and I need to log in again. I never know how long I was signed out and unable to receive messages.

                      • Team address books (and company-wide address book)

                        The lifeblood of Microsoft teams is the people that that make up those teams and generate the content within teams. As of now, there is now basic way of listing who those people are within teams.

                        It would be really great if each team had it's own "people" tab where it would be an address book of all the people who make up that team. Without it, how does a general user even know with whom they are speaking?

                        Furthermore, it would be good to have the option for a company-wide "people" tab in the left menu, which would function…

                        • Presence across Tenants

                          Have presence across tenants. I am working with some users in one Teams site in one tenant but when I return to mine they cannot see my presence. Presence should be across tenant or configurable to be like that. Thanks

                                  Teams automatically changes your presence to "In a meeting" any time there is something on your calendar. When it sets this it also overrides any presence setting made in Skype for business and it will not allow you to change the presence in Skype until you have set the presence in Teams manually to Available. In Skype for Business this was an option that we did not use for most of our employees as many of them have items on their calendar that have nothing to do with if they are actually available on their device to receive messages. There…

                                  • External users have difficulty joining the team.

                                    I've invited external users several times, (external users are allowed for Teams in the Office365 settings). The Teams app allows me to add users, sends them an email with a link, but when they click the link, launching their Teams app, an error pops up saying that they need to be invited to Teams. Although... they just clicked on an invitation link.

                                      • Syncronize exchange and teams so that calendars sync to the user's status

                                        Can we get the ability to see a calendar item title on smeone's status as well as marking them busy if they have an item in their outlook calendar? Cisco Jabber does this.

                                          All the chats that I had added to my Favorites disappeared after I came back from vacation. Presumably, this is because chats are auto-hidden after an expiration time of some kind? I was able to find the chats by searching for the people.

                                          My suggestion is to persist the chats indefinitely in the Favorites list by default. And let the user decide whether they want to Hide the chat or remove it from the Favorites list.
