  1. Custom Active Directory fields in profile

    Make it possible to change or create a template for what fields show in the profile. Example, show mobilephone or NOT. Show office, department, job title, Initials... or not.

    I'm missing initials at the moment

  4. 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.

  5. Add a "Buddy List"

    Many/most of the chat clients I have used over the years have the option to add people to a personalized "buddy list" (it has different names, but pretty much the same functionality). This is NOT the same as a Team. These are people you want to have frequent conversations with, but may not work on the same things you do on a regular basis. For instance, the administrative assistant is not going to be on the Team for various projects, but we still need to get in touch with her frequently.

    Someone mentioned to me that you might be able…

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  10. 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…

  12. Log out and all Teams does is log in again ... WTF???

    So, I figure out a way to "log out" and all Teams wants to do is present a login dialog! WTF? When I leave, I want to leave! Is this some setting/behavior that employers want? Who knows? Back when we used Skype for Business, when I logged out - that was it. But Teams seems eerily 'sticky' and to keep me 'connected' in spite of MY preferences and my personal time. While you are at it - when I am 'Away' you should suppress messages and report to the originator that I am in fact 'Away'. But I guess none…

  13. Connect desktop app status indicator to activity on desktop not just teams.

    On the desktop app the status indicator changes to inactive, even if it is open and just minimized, until I maximize Teams app and click in it.

  15. Different status color when user is busy/in meeting while different when in call

    Different status color when user is busy/in meeting while different when in call - It will help decide if user to be called directly (as of now it is not clear from status if user should be called)

  16. In Call (Mobile) Presence When In Cellular Call

    I am not sure if this is possible, but it would be wonderful for presence within MS Teams to reflect availability or presence based on whether or not a user is active on their phone -- and in particular if the user is in a cellular call.

  17. I would like you to add a timer to the "be right back" status so it goes back to available automatically. I always forget to put back.

    I would like you to add a timer to the "be right back" status so it goes back to available automatically. I always forget to put back. A timer option for 5, 10 or 15 minutes or let us put in our own time limit. If it is already there, not sure where it is.

  18. Presence based routing not available

    Hi All,

    I have had this discussion with Microsoft Support and they have confirmed that this is currently not available. At the moment we have a call queue that is set to Attendant Routing so it calls everyone in the group when a call comes in to the office. Currently this means whenever the phone rings, each persons Desktop Phone (Polycom VX410/411), Desktop PC and Mobile phone rings.

    We were recently swapped across to Teams in the backend and took the opportunity to move away from Slack and bring everything into the one tool. That part of it is great,…

  19. Allow static status

    Allow static settings of status such as busy. I may be busy but not typing on device so status does not remain busy - it switches to inactive.

  20. Statuses - highlight the difference between "Appear away" and "Be right back"

    As I understand it, "Appear away" should be used when you want people to just think you're not at your computer and "Be right back" is a more definitive 'I've nipped out, you won't get a reply for a while'. In Outlook, the contact card shows if you've selected "Be right back" with those words. However, in Teams you just see the icon which is the same as "Away" / "Appear away" so colleagues don't know which it is. Please could you make this clear like on the Outlook contact card.
