  3. Identify a person with his/her area of expertise

    Is there any way to identify people with a characteristic? For example, I want to associate a person to a characteristic / area of expertise. Is there any way to do it?
    Furthermore, is there any way to customize / add areas of expertise?

  4. You must be able to remove everything in the conversation.

    You must be able to remove everything in the conversation. To show that you delete and add names in the TEAMS group do not fill in any function. Then you must also be able to change the Welcome picture.

  6. 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

  7. Allow to tag (@) people in channel chat by their Skill/Expertise or project from Delve Profile

    When we collaborate and troubleshoot ideas in my organization, we would like to bring in or tag specific people to the chat based on their skills/expertise or project knowledge. It would be very helpful to be able tag experts/SMEs, for instance if we need mySQL expert, we could use tag @SQL and all the users with SQL expertise in Delve would get notified to join the discussion.

  10. I would like to be able to filter a channel by a certain user

    I would like to be able to filter a channel by a certain user. When looking for specific posts such as out of office messages it would be very handy to be able to filter by the people in the group.

  11. Not Available options

    It would be nice to have options other than Busy, DND & Away. Be nice to create your own, or at least add Lunch, Finished for Day etc.

  14. Bring contacts to right side of the app

    Teams has all contacts on the left side. I would like to have my contacts on the right hand side. Would be great if this can by made adjustable. I always had my Skypewindow at the right and this would improve the adoption for users going with Teams.

  15. See team membership when you are posting

    I am often unsure who is in a group. In WhatsApp the names are written at the top so I can be reminded of who is in and who is out. This helps as I write messages and is vital for sensitive communication.

  16. Teams is like a cacophony of text. I don't think there's a way to make it better. I still miss the days where I didn't have a mobile phone

    I still miss the days where I didn't have a mobile phone. If people wanted to reach me, they'd leave a message on my answering machine and I'd call them back at my leisure. Can we bring that back?

  17. It would be nice to be able to edit the image for individual Teams - so we could embed a jpeg or similar

    Let us replace the 2 character Block associated with individual teams and replace with an image or Avatar.

  18. Help!

    All too often Teams doesn't show me anyone's availability. Just completely white on everyone but me.

  19. 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..

    When we create a team for consumption or other project we are not able to include the relevant MS team members key to the outcome.
