  1. Need a way to bulk add multiple Team members at once by copying a string of email IDs (separated by a delimiter)

    Need a way to bulk add multiple Team members at once by copying a string of email IDs (separated by a delimiter) ;
    At present I have to individually add each and every email Id separately; that's very very time consuming;
    I am surprise Microsoft failed to think about this in the first place.

  3. Presence based routing not available

    Hi All,

    I have had this discussion with Microsoft Support and they have confirmed that this is currently not available. At the moment we have a call queue that is set to Attendant Routing so it calls everyone in the group when a call comes in to the office. Currently this means whenever the phone rings, each persons Desktop Phone (Polycom VX410/411), Desktop PC and Mobile phone rings.

    We were recently swapped across to Teams in the backend and took the opportunity to move away from Slack and bring everything into the one tool. That part of it is great,…

  4. Disable the presence association between Teams and Outlook

    It would be nice to have a setting that disable the presence association between Teams and Outlook.
    We are also using Skype for Business in our environment and we can disable the association by setting Teams upgrade policy. However, if we do so, Skype for Business becomes main app and we cannot use Teams. So, we would like to disable the linkage.

  5. Status Text visibility

    show the status message directly so people can see if someone is working remotely. i.e. WFH without having to go into their profile

  6. Make Teams honor EnableAwaySinceIndication setting from CSUserServicesPolicy

    In Skype for Business, setting Set-CsUserServicesPolicy -EnableAwaySinceIndication:$false removed "Away/offline since" timer visible for other users.
    In EU (Germany specifically) this timer is seen as privacy-intrusive, and this needs to be configurable in Teams as well.
    Currently Teams explicitly don't allow to remove this (https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoftteams/presence-admins#admin-settings-in-teams-compared-to-skype-for-business)

  7. Microsoft Teams Organizational Chart

    Hello Everyone,

    May we please suggest an option to be able to view an organizational chart for a tenant or company as a whole, with a possible option to print and or export as a Visio or PDF file?

    Thank you very much.

  8. Show person status "like in a meeting" and "in a call" with out hover over contact.

    I would be nice to have an indication on the contact list next to the name "in a call" or "in a meeting". Right now the only way to find out is to hover over the name in the chat. Because of that a lot of colleagues trying to call person already on the call. Not very ergonomic design of the interface.

  9. Isolate the presence status from other services to show certain status

    I would like to always show certain status (Available or Busy) as my presence regardless of the presence info from other services such as calendar.

  10. Status description of contact in header

    Additional field or line under name of contact of specific status. Normally we based status on the colored dot on lower right of photo, but it would be a lot helpful if you could also include "In a call" or "In a meeting" below the name of contact for better communication. Thanks. Appreciate if you could consider this.

  11. Opt-out of "Notify when available"

    In the previous Skype for Business you had the option to "Tag for Status Updates" and Teams similarly implemented "Notify when available" in the spring of 2019. This has been a big ask for people, but at the same time, it's a feature which in my experience has been ripe for abuse at worst, and encouraging poor etiquette at best. If you've ever gotten 5 messages the moment you sat down and unlocked your PC in Skype for Business, you know what I'm talking about. This feature is also a privacy nightmare, and in environments where there are privacy concerns…

  12. Display who has read a message on a channel or private chat

    Many collaboration tools, such as WebEx Teams, display an icon for the people that have read a message on a Team chat (channel) or private messages.

    It helps people know that your message has been read.

  13. Add Option to Display Status in Contacts List

    In the settings, add an option which causes Status text to display adjacent to or beneath (maybe both) the name and picture of a Contact in your Favorites.

  14. Presence for Contacts in Teams mobile app

    I would like to ask to improve the presence functionality of Teams mobile app that each user’s availability would be correctly updated in real time with Contacts.

  17. Include information for when client is available

    Skype included details of when the client was going to next be free or available. This was helpful so I wasn't bothering the person when they were in the middle of a meeting or away. I would think that the feature may become available with different calendar integration, but I wanted to mention the idea.

  18. Statuses - highlight the difference between "Appear away" and "Be right back"

    As I understand it, "Appear away" should be used when you want people to just think you're not at your computer and "Be right back" is a more definitive 'I've nipped out, you won't get a reply for a while'. In Outlook, the contact card shows if you've selected "Be right back" with those words. However, in Teams you just see the icon which is the same as "Away" / "Appear away" so colleagues don't know which it is. Please could you make this clear like on the Outlook contact card.

  19. Allow static status

    Allow static settings of status such as busy. I may be busy but not typing on device so status does not remain busy - it switches to inactive.

  20. Quick Access to another person's calendar

    Would be great if there were a way in teams to quickly view another person's calendar. Initial goal is to understand the person's next available time. It should initially present a the person's Calendar "Day View" as is the case for one's own calendar.
    I'm sure there would be other use cases for this as well.
    The attached screen print shows a mockup of the Contact Card form and how the access point/button could be located/placed.
