  1. Company directory information should be available from within teams.

    It would be nice to see information on other employees from the contact card in teams. For example, mailing address, phone numbers, etc. Sometimes I need to send something to someone or find their mobile number and I need to leave teams where I do my other communication to get that info.

  2. Detailed information needed for Teams presence

    I would like to have a public information for the presence activity deference based on the event creation method. Specifically, I need detailed information for the differences depending on the following scenarios in case when setting the Register Teams as the chat app for Office option in Teams, or when setting co-existing mode to island mode in Teams admin center.
    1. An event is created from Outlook on the web
    2. An event is created from Outlook client
    3. A Teams meeting is created from Microsoft Teams
    4. A Teams meeting is created from Outlook client

  3. Hide internal users’ icons from external users’ screen in Microsoft Teams

    *English follows Japanese
    ■Title(件名):
    Microsoft Teams において、外部のユーザーには、内部ユーザーのアイコンが表示されないようにしたい。

    Hide internal users’ icons from external users’ screen in Microsoft Teams
    ***************
    ■Description(内容):
    Microsoft Teams では匿名ユーザーおよびゲストユーザーを招待可能であるかと存じます。その際、外部のユーザーには内部のユーザーのアイコンが閲覧不可 (デフォルトで設定されていたアイコンになるなど) となるよう機能の拡充を希望します。
    アイコンには本人の顔写真が利用されている場合が多く、個人情報の漏洩を懸念しております。

    In Microsoft Teams, we are allowed to invite anonymous users or guest users. Which means those external users can also see the internal users’ icons that might include internal users’ head shots or other personal information.

    To prevent the leakage of personal information, I hope the feature will be introduced to restrict external users from seeing internal users’ icons (displaying the default icon instead).

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  10. Custom away message... Like Skype.

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

  11. 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

  12. Display user info on hovering over profile picture

    Display user info on hovering over profile picture at the top of Teams like it is done when hovering in chat over profile picture. Then you can finally see the user login name of the currently logged in user with hovering over the profile picture. Should be easy to implement.

  13. 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.

  14. Teams status issues

    Changing status is very slow. Sometimes it takes 30 seconds or more for our statuses to change. Also many times other users statuses are a white circle even though I am actively chatting with them.

  15. 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

  18. 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.

  20. Remove "status unknown" or add time like with away or offline

    Sometimes status is shown as status unknown instead of offline, not sure exactly what it means but judging from what I've seen it could just mean the user is offline.

    Ideally I think this status should be removed since either Teams has contact with the user and can determine the status or contact can not be established and then the user is offline (a status which you have).

    If it for some reason can not be removed then I think you should at least change it so that you can see time since last activity. The same way as with…
