    • 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.

      • 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.

          • 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.

            • Dismiss other user's out of office status in a team

              When I go to a team channel or a group message and one or more participants is out of office, I am notified every time. Even if I acknowledge the message, it just comes back. I realize that a single person is not going to receive the message, but it's still relevant to the other 30 people on the team. If I dismiss someone's OOO message in Teams, it should stick, I shouldn't have to dismiss it every time I try to send a message to the rest of the group.

              • Show which people have subordinates in org chart view

                When viewing a person's organization I would like to see which of their subordinates are managers - ie, have subordinates of their own. This could just be a down arrow connected to the subordinate box, or some other indicator on the box. As it is you have to click on every box to find out which ones have people beneath them

                • 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

                    one of my annoying colleagues always reinvites me to a group chat I leave. please add a feature to block someone particular to invite you to groups without blocking the whole person.

                    • Add an out of office feature for chats

                      I don't know if this works automatically if you use Office 365 for your email and calendaring too, but we don't. Teams needs an out of office feature separate to Office 365 calendaring so people who try to message me while I'm on vacation get told as much.

                        • See team members and status on channel conversation page

                          Similar to other chat apps (e.g. HipChat) show the members of a team on each channel message page on a sidebar (right side?)

                          • Move the Away timer next to the user in 'Chat'

                            Move the Away timer in 'Chat to be next to the user's name. Our supervisors use this in Skype for Business to keep track of people taking long lunches, but in Teams you have to hover over a username to see the Away time.

                            • 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.

                                • As a user I would like to have a way to visually indicate that I have something to add to the conversation.

                                  One of the difficult things about teleconferencing is that everyone is trying to jump in on each-other every-time the person talking takes a breath. This is because there is no visual ques that indicate that a person has something to contribute.

                                  I think it would be a small but significant improvement to have a "raise your hand" like option where I can click on my own avatar and it will highlight my square in a color (like green) indicating to the current person talking that I have a followup question or idea

                                    • Have status on teams the same as SFB, including offline time

                                      When on SFB you can see how long someone is offline for, this service on teams would be brilliant as you could see at a glance if someone is actively using teams.

                                      • display profile image

                                        If you have a number of contacts that you engage with during the day, it would be helpful to have a setting where the profile image does not display next to the name. This saves the need to scroll quite as much. I know you can search for the too but..
