  2. Allowing Planner Access / Sync With member Who Aren't Part Of The Team

    Hi all.

    Is there a way to share/engage with an employee within the business around a task created in the planner tab without necessarily adding that person to the team or channel in which the task was created?

    For example, I am in Marketing so obviously part of the Marketing team. I am creating a design for a magazine advert for someone in the HR team. I don't really want them as part of my Marketing team or design channel within the Marketing team as they may get confused and bombarded with stuff they need not see. However, at task…

  3. New status "In Meeting"

    Teams is used by many organisation. A new status "In Meeting" will be very beneficial, if someone is going to attend the meeting.

  4. 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.

  5. Lag In Presence/Status Update

    The presence update is laggy, even in very simple scenarios. I made a call which changed me to "On a Call", then hung up. It took about a minute after the call for my icon to change back to Available. Strangely, I could see the correct status if I pulled up my profile.

  7. Add User Current Timezone as Part of Status

    With team members traveling and often located across the world, it would be great to have an indicator of what timezone they are currently located in. Ideally, this would be based on their geographical location. If MSFT tracks this via internet connect or some other means, it would be great to display it as part of status or when hovering over the name/icon.

  8. I was looking for a way to find online status of our employees. We use this for the receptionist to see who is available for calls / questi

    We used Skype for our receptionist(s) convenience.
    We look at who is online at their desk - who is marked away (lunch, breaks and so on. I am not sure this product is what we need to use it for. We keep all of our co-workers on a visible contact list it shows their on line status. That way we don't have to chase around the office trying to find someone. Any suggestions

  10. time zone status

    Our Teams members travel between different time zones often.

    Aside from knowing the status of my Team member, knowing in which time zone they currently reside would be beneficial.

    Especially, being able to see the time zones for all the team members on the team members tab.

  12. 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.

  13. 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

  14. Chat

    All the chats that I had added to my Favorites disappeared after I came back from vacation. Presumably, this is because chats are auto-hidden after an expiration time of some kind? I was able to find the chats by searching for the people.

    My suggestion is to persist the chats indefinitely in the Favorites list by default. And let the user decide whether they want to Hide the chat or remove it from the Favorites list.

  15. remove from group

  16. Allow to permanently hide the "out of office" banner

    Everytime someone changes his status to Away in calendar (holidays...), this banner appears in each conversation where this person is. The banner appears automatically few seconds after having selected the conversation, even if it as been closed earlier. It's really boring... Please allow to remove this banner until next unavailability of this person. Thanks

  17. switch status from taskbar

    I want to change my status from the taskbar.
    I now can only see my current status when I right klick the icon in the taskbar. Would be nice to be able to switch status right in that context menu without having to start teams just for that

  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. 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.
