  1. 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…

  2. External user profile information & edit

    Ability to edit External User's information in Teams (in team members, for example): Name (if error was made during invite), Title, Company, Mobile number should be possible. If not in Teams UI then external user AAD information should be editable (or reflect information from the source AAD).

    Or: External user should be able to change these in Teams profile per guest-tenant (settings)

    Currenly changing external information in AAD does not show in Teams and there is no information about guest user.

  4. Sort/Group contacts by presence

    When you have a list of contacts, it would be great to be able to group them by who is available, who is offline etc. At the moment it is hard to see who is available just by their different coloured icons.

  5. suggested contacts

    Adding a contact to my favorites should automatically remove them from the 'suggested contacts' don't you think?

  6. 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

  7. 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.

  9. Add an option not to change status based on calendar information

    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…

  10. 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.

  11. delay messages for "busy" contacts

    The contacts that have set their presence as "busy" or DND should not get notified/disturbed by the messages. If someone tries to send messages to a busy contact, MS Teams should ask if the message is really critical, with options "urgent, send now", "automatically send later when the contact is available", "dont send".
    Its such a basic feature, it ought to be there

  12. create a Focus prescence that can be time boxed and a 'while you were away' summary pop-up

    We would like to be able to set our presence to Focus (to allow time to focus on an issue or task) where we would not be disturbed.

    Once the time expires, we would like the presence to resume where we were.

    And we would like to have a summary pop-up that shows what happened while we were away so every post does not have to be read.

    Additionally we would like to have a summary pop-up that tells what happened while the presence is offline, so when geting back online in the morning, there would be a summary to…

  13. Contacts

    There needs to be better management for viewing contacts in the chat section. It's really frustrating that even though I have placed different contacts into groups and then I collapse those groups that when I navigate away from the chat section and then come back that all of my groups get automatically expanded.

  14. Sync "Teams Status" with "GitHub Status"

    I just spotted the new feature to add a custom status message to Microsoft Teams. GitHub introduced a similar feature recently. As a customer using both products it would be nice if you could sync those two statuses. Thus, users could manage their status at the preferred app and see other users’ statuses in both environments.

  15. 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.

  16. 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.

  17. 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.

  18. ''Get-CsUserSession'' Powershell command

    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".

    Thank you in advance!

  19. Custom away message... Like Skype.

    Skype has an option to "set your location". A similar option in MS Teams would be a great boon.

  20. 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.
