  1. 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.

  2. Person Daily Schedule/Work hours on Hover Card

    A very useful feature for people would be the ability to hover over a person and see their schedule/work hours for the day. A lot of times, we want to chat with someone and status isn't enough. We would like to see if they are in the office, meeting or have one or more meetings coming up. Saves a ton of time.

  3. Right now, the status has no value as people do not change it often. It's frustrating because it doesn't provide real information!

    It also gives you a negative impression of those who are always away or busy, even if subconsciously. I think you have the potential to make something so significantly better with this small change! Perhaps a timer for away status based on movement/keystrokes, or synced to calendar appointments.

  4. Go offline without logging out

    I want to be able to set both the desktop and mobile apps to show me as offline but don’t leave me in a state where in need to fully authenticate again. I don’t want people to think I’m avIlable for chat if I’m actually off work. At least S4B remembered my credentials when I signed out go offline; Teams requires several steps to re-login with the same creds I used last time.

  6. Make Teams more fun and less horribly corporate and evil

    In corporate settings, still allow me to be choose a friendly display name (but keep all the corporate **** attached to my profile). Or at least allow me to truncate my name to First and Last Initial, e.g., Bill J. or Sarah B.

  7. Link from user card to that user's entry in Office 365 admin

    As an Office 365 Admin, I just realised it would be incredibly helpful to go from /who "who is joe bloggs" and then go straight to his user entry in Office 365 Admin so I could look someone up, find out who he works for, then skip over to alter his account, licences, etc. It's probably a pretty niche request but it would be quite cool to be able to do it. Especially if you're in the org chart view and you are spotting things that need to be changed, you could just open them right up and change the…

  8. Add Members from Address Book

    There is a similar feature in Yammer, where I can add members from an existing Address Book in a CVS format. Let us do that in Teams too!

  9. Make an invisible status

    It would be nice if there was an "invisible" status that shows you offline/disconnected but still made you able to browse your team's content

  10. Show Status Time on hover

    When you open a chat with someone who is away and hover on over thier picture in the chat pane it will say something like "12m ago" for when they were last active. However, when you hover over the same profile picture in your chat list in the left pane, it just says "Away". Please add the time away on that hover as well.

    It would be nice if there was an option to show the away time without hovering over the user like Skype For business's contact list that shows "<name> - Away 22m ago"

  11. Customize Availablity

    I would like the ability to change my availability to a custom message. We have people who are working but in a different location or offsite. This ability would allow people to better recognize "how" available someone is.

  15. Mention people of the company but not included to the team

    Sometimes we need to ask something to a person who is not member of the team. It could be vey helpful if we can mention a person on a conversation, that person could read and answer the message but not see anything else.

  16. Display mobile number

    When looking at users in teams. It doesn't display their mobile number. It just displays their office number. I would like to see both the users office number and mobile number.

  17. Remove "status unknown" or add time like with away or offline

    Sometimes status is shown as status unknown instead of offline, not sure exactly what it means but judging from what I've seen it could just mean the user is offline.

    Ideally I think this status should be removed since either Teams has contact with the user and can determine the status or contact can not be established and then the user is offline (a status which you have).

    If it for some reason can not be removed then I think you should at least change it so that you can see time since last activity. The same way as with…
