  2. In the Android app, put Favorites at the top of the Contact list.

    It would be good to be able to sort the lists, or always put Favorites at the top.

  5. Teams gives us suggestions for new team members. But I would like to remove a or all suggestions when I don't want to invite them.

    Instead of keeping suggested team members floating in the column I should be able to ignore or delete them. Now we are only able to favorite or pin them. I would like them to remove altogether. It would be even better to be able to disable Suggestions.

  6. Can't update presence on OSX

    When I click my avatar on the top right and change my status to "busy", Teams continues to display "Available".

  7. Make permissions more secure

    Make permissions more secure. Someone was able to join a private team I created. Another team owner complained about this as well.

  8. Make an easy to see group dashboard like on Skype and other apps

    On Skype and other apps you can set up groups and easily click on the group to see who is available. You don't have to manually search each individual person. Teams is not user friendly and on the PC takes up way too much space.

  9. presence indicator chat and other features

    Ideally with skype the presence indicator context dialog shows different option including chat. With Teams presence indicator is not showing it correctly first and secondly the chat option is disabled. This is a basic feature people look for to quickly launch the chat window and start a conversation from mail. Please let me know if this is in road map

  11. Get more people working on your backlog.

    Consider:
    You are part of a HUGE HUGE HUGE company yet people are not appreciating your efforts as much as you deserve. Pull some higher resources using your determined confidence and get Teams to support Emojis - morale before usability!!! :D

  13. Rip it and start again!

    If this is to replace skype business, then it is a very poor replacement solution.

    Issues importing business contacts, unable to see who is online easily.

    Not easy for users to see at a glance what we need without all the other junk getting in the way.

    All in all a very poor replacement and we will be looking for a skype style replacement and cancelling the package we are on, possibly a WhatApp style replacement.

  14. 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…

  16. Hide message from one person

    Sometimes you want to make a surprise to someone and ask the whole company to contribute to it. I could create a Team or a Private Chat and add people manually one by one.

    Wouldn't it be cool if could just exclude that one person (or perhaps multiple)? Perhaps through a channel?

  17. Provide the ability to view the whole company organisational structure.

    Provide the ability to view the whole company organisational structure, not just who i report into or who reports into me. At times we get asked to look a the structure to check if its correct and a single view would be great. Yes there are 3rd party tools but I don't see why this cant just be an inherent feature as partial views are already shown.

  18. Expand Who and move to sidebar near the top

    Leverage the Who Tab to make it easier to find contacts and presence. Add it is a standard button just under Chat and above Teams. Have another Tab, (Just like Collaborators) for Contacts that you can add from your Exchange Contacts, possibly another one for Favourites. Ultimately the ability to create your own Contact Group
    The reason I keep going back to SfB rather than operate solely out of Teams is the ease with which I can find people. An expanded Who Tab that I can get to in a single Click rather than multiple steps would be great.

  19. The ability to set availability per team differently from global

    Sure would be groovy to have a global availability option and then something more granular for individual teams. For example, appear busy to the masses, but for Team XYZ (my immediate crew) appear available.
