  3. 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.

  4. Have presence detection consider multi desktop

    Have the auto presence detection consider if the windows desktop Teams is on it the current desktop.

    As more people are working at home, and using Teams they are using personal PCs. For me, I separate my work activities and personal stuff using the Windows 10 multiple desktop feature. I have a desktop for work stuff, where I run Teams logged into my Work account. When my work day ends, and I move over to my "personal" desktop I would like teams to detect that and set my status as aways (just as it does when the PC is idle).

  5. 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. 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.

  8. Like Backgrounds, have customizable banner in the Foreground, where you can have your contact and company information

    We have many Sales people using Teams now, and when they interact with customers, it would look more professional if we could put a customizable banner in front of them with the company logo, their name and contact info, similar to what you see when someone is broadcasting the news. We can put it on a background today, but all lettering in the backgrounds always have a slightly blurry appearance on Teams.

    In the example attached, we have a background on the left, with our salesperson using the space on the right, and would like the banner and the company…

  9. a status button that indicates - "feel free to drop by my virtual desk"

    to give a better feel of the spontaneity of just dropping by someone's desk beyond a "chat" message, show a status that means, sure, pick up the phone/video and call me for a quick conversation.

  10. Floating bar in Meeting that informs me that I AM NOT MUTED

    I see ask for Colored Border with same info but I'm not sure what that looks like versus floating bar. Border may be less distracting. I just want this status to be VERY VISIBLE to me. - Not that I'm making horridly distracting noise on my end BUT... somehow I accidentally toggle that mute button and my coworkers can tend to want to shoot me. Thank you.

  11. 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.

  13. Status in Teams should change across all 365 apps

    When the status is changed in Teams, this should then reflect across all other Office 365 apps, Outlook for example and vice a versa.

    Currently, when the user changes their status in Teams, this does not change the status in other apps.

  14. Show presence in the @ auto complete dop-down

    When starting conversations with people via @ in the search bar the presence of the person is not shown on the result in the drop down. This small feature would make teams so much better.

  15. status

    Show more details in Busy Status beside the name as was the case with Skype for Business.
    1. on a call
    2. in a meeting
    3. in a conference call
    Failure to show the detailed status beside the name, will give the impression that the person might by busy but still available for quick questions. Instead of providing the message sender the option to be courteous when the receiver status clearly shows on a conference call without having to hover over the name.

  16. When clicking quit in Teams it should set status as Offline.

    When either clicking Quit on Teams or shutting down at the end of a work day, Teams should show a status of Offline. It currently leaves me as available and people will continue to message me when I am off for the day thinking I am available and causes confusion and frustration on both ends. When clicking Quit in Teams or shutting down the computer, it should set status as Offline.

  17. automated status update option

    please give a choice that can impliment automated status changes. i.e. when i'm in a call, my status will show in a call or do not disturb, if i'm not using my computer for certain minutes, it turns to away automatically. I hate when i'm having a call, but someone couldn't see it and calls as well.

  18. Location awareness for Presence

    With so many people working from home and office shifts, it will be great to know who is in the office and wh is working from home.

    And of course, all this available through the API

  19. Better visibility of user status

    At the moment it is possible to see if person is in the call or in a meeting only when hover over the name for mini-contact card. In Skype4B for example, it was shown under a user name, you can even differentiate if this a call or conference call, which I cannot see in MS teams

  20. Integrate TEAMS with Skype status

    Would it be possible to integrate TEAMS with Skype status so when I'm in a meeting on TEAMS it shows as 'red' in Skype too.
