  1. Prevent automatic presence / status changes

    Please can there be a setting to turn off automatic presence / status changes, and also allow the presence setting to stay the same if Teams is closed or reopened or the computer is restarted. It is very frustrating and disruptive to work that the presence can change automatically by itself

  2. Improvements NEEDED for "Contacts"

    For the "Contacts" in the "Chat" tab. Have ability like S4B to add Distribution groups. Also have ability to start a group chat from these groups, same as S4B. You don't always need a "Team" room for a quick group chat.
    Also need ability to move and sort these groups manually. Currently no way to sort manually, it does it automatic alphabetically.
    Every time you leave the "Contacts" in "Chat" and return all the groups are expanded. These should not auto expand, they should stay minimized until the user expands them manually when needed.

  3. Allow External Federated Users to be added to Contact List

    Require the ability to add external federated contacts to the Contacts list under the Chat section of Teams.

    At the moment, it is only possible to add internal users or guest accounts.

    Key requirement for allowing communication with federated partners as is available with Skype for Business.

  4. Provide an option within Settings to permanently collapse or hide the 'Suggested Contacts'. It is not useful.

    Offer the user an option to permanently collapse or hide the 'Suggested Contacts' that are constantly in an expanded view and must be collapsed with every login to Teams.

  5. Button for scheduling a meeting from a contact card

    Just as with Skype for Business, when you hover or right click a contact in Chat, you have a "Schedule a Meeting" option. In Teams, this is not replicated. You have to go to meetings to schedule with that person whose contact card you were just looking at.

    Add the support for getting a full list of session details via the "Get-CsUserSession" Powershell command like it is currently available for "Skype for Business Online".

  7. 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

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  10. User’s display name in Microsoft Teams

    *English follows Japanese
    ■Title(件名):
    ユーザーの表示名について

    User’s display name in Microsoft Teams
    ***************
    ■Description(内容):
    現在 Teams を多く利用しております。
    最新表示にそれぞれのユーザーの情報がユーザーの名前で表示されるため便利に確認しております。
    しかし日本語環境だと、名前のみで表示されているユーザーが多数おります。
    連絡先の項目内 ”表示名” に空白が入ると空白以降の表示となる動作は理解しておりますが、日本語環境だと、一般的に性の後に空白を入れ名前を入力する事が多いかと存じます。
    現在は Microsoft 365 管理センターにて変更をする事で表示を見やすいよう検討しておりますが、ユーザーが多数いて工数もかなりのものになるため、機能の拡張を要望します。

    When users set the language setting to “Japanese” in Microsoft Teams, some of Japanese users are displayed with only their first names in the user information. The reason of this is in Japanese, most people put space between surname and first name, and if the space is included in “Display name” field in contact information, letters entered before the space won’t be shown in the Display name.
    If we want to fix the display name,…

  11. 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.

  12. More focus on external contacts

    Overall the Teams approach seems to be focused on collaboration with internal or company peers. For people who spend more than 50% of their time working externally the overall usability of teams features seems like this isn't a priority scenario.

  13. Teams should allow to track timesheets for team members

    Teams should allow to track timesheets for team members as well. Then Teams is going to one stop shop for the team and TPMs. Of Course, we can integrate with VSTS. VSTS does not have option either to enter the timesheets.

  15. better status in chat

    At the top of the chat window where it says the name, it doesn't clearly display information about what they are doing. It would be nice to have a status, next meeting @, location

  17. Hide latest message from Chat sidebar

    When scanning down the Chat sidebar looking for a person's name I find the most recent message text and time to be distracting noise. It would be much easier to find the person I'm looking for if those details weren't shown (personally, if I wanted to see that information I'd click on the user's name).

    An option to hide this extra info, so that just the names and avatars are shown, would make the UI much clearer.

  20. 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.
