  1. Allow users to change the defult time of 10 minutes to how ever long they would like before the status changes from available to away.

    The users should be able to override the 10 minutes setting that changes the user's status from available to away.

  2. Teams Presence should be 'real-time'.

    Having presence delays of up to 4 minutes makes presence largely useless. Having to resort back to typing 'are you free now' after calls, because I can't tell if they are still in the meeting, or have started another meeting or call. Or trying to call somebody and get rejected and a message saying "I'm in a call"

  4. User presence reports

    We would like to run presence reports on individual users. Also, we would like to schedule the reports to run automatically.

  5. List of attendees/non-attendees

    I love the ability to get a structure for the meeting in OneNote (list of attendees, link to meeting, etc) BUT would be great to have here who actually attended and who did not. Right now we have to go through the list and work out who attended/didn't attend. Would be fantastic if Teams/OneNote could do this for us.

  6. Let us control how many minutes pass before our status is set to Away.

    Other software can do this. Let us control how many minutes pass before our status changes.

  7. Status option

    There should be an option provided to select and set one particular status and it should remain same until changed manually (the way skype provides option to set availability).
    Also, timeline to set away status should be changeable.
    Sometimes app displays the duration for how long the person is away and sometime it just displays away status. This should be controllable.

  8. Allow setting idle time to avoid constantly appearing "Away"

    Now that we are working from home, we need to appear as available all time, or at least for more time that 3 minutes even when you are not actively using the computer.

  9. Animated hair styles (filter)

    As many are dealing with huge challenges presented by COVID-19, this probably ranks low on the list. However, without access to a qualified hair stylist and left with a choice between a bad self-inflicted haircut or out-of-control shagginess, it would be nice if Teams offered a virtual hair style (aka filter) to pick from

  10. Additional Settings for the Status Option

    Currently the only setting available for Status is the ability to change whether you'd like individuals to see your comment or for you to see theirs. Would love an additional setting where I could determine when the status switches from Active to Away and set a time limit. For example, change status to Away when user has been idle for XX minutes. Currently, if I'm working in another program my status will switch to Away even if I'm still at my computer working. This gives the impression to my boss that I'm not actively working. Another option would be to…

  11. draw participant

    Select a random name among meeting participants.

    This functionality will have a social character, facilitating the execution of events during meetings

  12. Show presence when adding people to an existing call

    When adding additional users to an existing call, it would be extremely useful to see their presence status. Right now I have to go to "Chat" and search for the person to see their status before calling them. It would be very helpful to be able to see someone is away or busy right from the add participants interface.

  13. More obvious status

    It would be great to be able to see the current status more obviously instead of having to put our cursor over the red icon to see if the person is busy or in a meeting or in a call.

    It would be cool to have it listed under their name or next to their name in the chat windows.

  14. Kuando BusyLights

    Teams Needs to allow a connector to be developed for Kuando Busylights. They are used in MANY open office arangements and companies can't transition to Teams from SfB until the connector is developed. To do that Microsoft needs to release the call and presence API documentation.

  15. API for Teams custom status messages

    Teams custom status message just rolled to clients. Is there a way to update the status via Graph (or other ) API, calling the client / updating a file or any other non manual way currently / nearby?

    It would open up interesting possibilities to update statuses (off duty, on duty for example).

    extending time is a valuable feature. I sometimes work on 2 computers and they both need to know I am present.

  17. Filter the Contacts list by status

    As a team member, I would like the ability to filter the Teams contacts list by status so that I can see only those team members who are presently listed as "Available" for immediate consultations.

  19. Better presentations

    Today it is very boring to listen to a ppt presentation over teams since the presentation is the tool and the presenter is not in focus. A presentation should be a support to a presenter. I want to have the option to be able to appear like the attached picture to be a more active part of the presentation.

  20. 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)
