  3. After a user adds a profile pic, it doesn't always appear next to their name in chat and in channels.

    It appears to work if they immediately added their photo before participating in communication. Maybe the system is caching their initials (the no-photo icon) and not refreshing for an updated photo?

  4. See team members and status on channel conversation page

    Similar to other chat apps (e.g. HipChat) show the members of a team on each channel message page on a sidebar (right side?)

  5. Do Not Disturb unexpectedly changes to Available

    I set myself to "Do Not Disturb"
    I send a message or a chat.
    Teams decides I'm available, and changes me to "Available."
    NO, DND means JUST THAT. Please STOP changing my availability!

    Once your tenant is using UPS (unified presence service), you should no longer have issues where DND changes back to available.

    If you are on UPS, and are experiencing this issue, it would be super helpful if you can capture logs by typing Ctrl + Shift + Alt + 1, and send the file from your downloads folder along with any details to teamsml@microsoft.com.

    Thanks all!

  6. Reject invite person who don't have teams license inside organization

    Organization doesn't 100% people must have Office Teams license, right now even those person who doesn't have Teams license in hybrid environment within organization still can be invited. But eventually those people doesn't know being invited, and even go access by team code, finally is rejected due to license issue.

    Option whether it can provide login as guest within organization itself, or it reject while Teams select those person who doesn't have team license within organization

  7. 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.

  8. Add an out of office feature for chats

    I don't know if this works automatically if you use Office 365 for your email and calendaring too, but we don't. Teams needs an out of office feature separate to Office 365 calendaring so people who try to message me while I'm on vacation get told as much.

  10. Better people visibility on teams


    1. When you add participants to an event, even inactive users show up. That should be fixed.


    2. Would be great to have a people section to easily scroll through all people, even better to filter by availability.

  12. Contact information states that user is not licesnsed for this feature.

    When licensed for E3, hovering over a contact's name, then phone receiver displays a message that the user is not licensed for this feature.

  14. Advanced Check In - Check Out with Inclusive Org Chart Support

    The Org Chart feature populated by AD is AWESOME!!! Having it well integrated with a check in/out feature would make the Teams mobile app so efficient for SMBs like ours. Our President has been asking for a custom "company directory/check in check out" mobile app that we would develop internally for years. Since Teams is all about collaboration across the organization, I am also picturing the integration of the online presence baked in this. If Out of the Office Assistant is also right there with it, that would be cherry on top!

  16. 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.

  17. 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.

  18. Status Updates on Poeples Avatar area slow or not working

    When changing the Status from available to busy or away, the other Chat Partner can see this 3 Minutes after the Change or you can force if you jump a bit between your own contacts. Sometimes this helps.

    Then the next issue is if this Status has been changed it will just Change in the favorite sidebar on the left side. When you hover over this it will give you the vcard which Shows still available (green) for example. Also on the Right side on the top the same behaviour. The Status doesn't Change. It stays with Available (green).

  19. How do I "invite" an SME to any specific thread without having to add as a member or guest to the whole group?

    I would like to invite an SME to a specific thread to collaboratively solve a problem. I wouldn't want to add the SME to the group. As a colleague, I would like to invite the SME to provide his/her input to the thread, gain context and provide a reply to it.
