  1. Users should have control of their presence in Teams.

    Teams automatically changes the status of Teams presence which is not always wanted or needed. It shows me Away when I am actually on another screen working on something. This can cause a question for management as to whether I am working or not. The user should be able to set their presence independent of everything else - including the Outlook Calendar.

  2. Keep me signed in as “available” until I sign myself out.

    It can be frustrating when I’m headed to meetings and my status defaults to “away” if I am not on for more than 10 minutes. I want people to know I am available unless I set myself to away. Keep me signed in as available unless I set my status otherwise.

  4. Add a Be Right Back / Break button especially for longer calls

    Since video and voice calls go on for hours, kindly add a Be Right Back button for participants to enable a quick break

  5. My status constantly reverts to yellow even when I am active. I would like to keep it green so my peers know that I am available.

  6. Showing Status with a text

    Status of a person should be shown with a text like In a meeting, busy like that.Right now we have to hover over the icon to know this because its difficulat to differentiate between busy and in a meeting status. Other status are easy to identify. Or we can give unique colors to all the status.

    There are presence states listed in publicly available information which are not currently implemented, and since it is unknown when they will become available, we would like you to make that information available.

  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. 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.

  12. 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.

  13. All presence options available when hover over app icon.

    Currently when you hover over the Teams app icon in Task Bar you can only see a subset of presence choices. You should be able to see all choices including one to Reset status back to whatever your automatic outlook integration says.

  15. In A Call presence whenever audio is in use

    When joining a meeting or group call with audio on Mute, presence will only indicate In A Meeting. Even after Unmute, the presence remains In A Meeting versus In A Call.
    Indicating In A Call is preferred whenever audio is active (regardless of mute condition) during a meeting or group call.

  16. keep status

    allow MS Teams to keep last recorded status.
    e.g. my status keeps reverting back to Available after put my laptop to sleep. would be good for Teams to recognize that i had manually set status to Busy and keep it that way even after i lock, sleep or hibernate my laptop.

  17. Set status to "Busy" or "In a call" when the microphone or webcam is being used by another application

    Sometimes you have to join a customer or vendor meeting using another collaboration app, such as Zoom or Webex. It would be nice if Teams could recognize your microphone and/or webcam is in use by another program and automatically set your status to "In a call" or "Busy."

  19. Be able to be notified of presence change from chat window

    From the chat window with a user, be able to ask for a notification when that user's presence status changes. Currently you have to go to Settings>Manage Notifications which is quite hard to reach.
