  1. Allow user to block specific contacts while being able to stay Online for others.

    Some users may need to be available for quick chat contact through Teams to other members of the team, but other users in the organization may take advantage of their online presence to bypass regular communication channels. Specifically, helpdesk support person needs a service ticket submitted before assisting someone, but must be available in Teams for consultation with other IT staff.

  3. Let me @ Mention the user's first name instead of their DisplayName

    Hi,
    When mentioning someone with @, is it possible to use the user alias instead of the Display Name? In Slack for example, it is possible to choose whether to display the full name or the user name when being mentioned. Could be great to have it on MS Teams because it is shorter in messages where many mentions are provided.

  4. Hide a user from Microsoft Teams

    It would be very beneficial to be able to hide a user from showing as a Microsoft Teams user. Right now it is super confusing for users when old staff members whose mailboxes are still being used show in Microsoft Teams. There is currently no option to hide these users from showing as contacts in chats.

  5. Allow rearranging contacts and groups

    The new contact list is now live but it's missing the ability to rearrange contacts and groups by drag and drop like you can now do with teams and recent conversations.

    I have quite a few contacts and large groups so sorting them would be very useful.

  6. Team address books (and company-wide address book)

    The lifeblood of Microsoft teams is the people that that make up those teams and generate the content within teams. As of now, there is now basic way of listing who those people are within teams.

    It would be really great if each team had it's own "people" tab where it would be an address book of all the people who make up that team. Without it, how does a general user even know with whom they are speaking?

    Furthermore, it would be good to have the option for a company-wide "people" tab in the left menu, which would function…

  7. I want to edit my display name or give myself a nickname

    When I @mention a team member it displays them as Last Name, First name which really interrupts the conversational flow. Slack lets me edit my display name.

  8. Import Groups & Contacts from Skype for Business

    With the integration of Skype's features in Microsoft Teams, is there a way to export/import your Contacts and Groups from Skype into Microsoft Teams?

    For someone that has been using Teams for over a year now, this would be very useful tool.

    As to perform this task of creating Groups, adding the people to them both internal and external manually would take several hours.

    Let me know if I can assist.

    The option to “discard” suggested contacts in your chat list is rolling out to users. We will be making further changes to make suggested contacts more relevant for new users in the future as well, so marking as partially completed. Thanks for your patience with this one.

  10. Is it possible to either import your outlook contacts or integrate with your contacts?

    It would be great when going to make calls that it could integrate with your outlook contacts. thank you,

  11. Remember expand/collapse contact groups

    The new contact list is now live and it has the option to expand and collapse contact groups. However when I restart teams the are all expanded again.

    It would be better if Teams remembered when I collapse a group. then I can for example hide groups of contacts I don't use as often.

  12. contact information

    Give same contact card information as in Skype. Teams only gives an abbreviated version of the contact card. There is no way to get the full contact card. I need fax, mobile, etc...not just work #.

  13. Lets make contacts great again!

    Can we please have an awesome next-level contacts interface and management!? Pretty sure we were promised cool stuff in SfB that never came :(

    While contacts management might seem like a pretty boring feature (because it is), its one of the most pivotal parts of the app. The whole point of the app is to communicate. So if you can't find or interact with contact information easily, it can be very frustrating!!!

    The first thing that needs to be resolved is the fact that the "Calls" tab is the central location for contacts. That doesn't see right or make sense…

  14. Sort Contacts

    Allow users to sort the contacts in chat, the same way you can in Skype for Business - by Groups/Teams, Status, Relationships, New - and perhaps add the Recent and Suggested as tabs there as well.

  15. Create/start a chat for a Contact Group

    It would be great if we can create/start a new chat based off a Contact Group. Rather than adding each person individually to a chat, the fact that they are part of a group would be so convenient to just right-click the Contact Group name, say 'Start Chat' and it would initiate a new chat will all members in the group.

  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. nicknames

  18. Need to be able to search/call Outlook contacts' phone numbers without leaving Teams

    The biggest obstacle and user complaint we have when rolling out Teams is that users cannot search for their Outlook contacts to call like they could in Skype For Business. Instead, they have to open Outlook and reference the contact's phone number which is inefficient & clumsy. It goes against everything else Teams does well in in terms of consolidating apps/interfaces. Users should be able to search for and call their outlook contacts via PSTN without having to leave Teams.

    Skype for Business is still a much more streamlined design for external PSTN calling because users cannot find and dial…

  19. Sort Participants by last name

    Right now the list of Participants is by first name. This is not helpful when taking attendance with a large number of people. It should be possible to reorder to sort by last name

  20. Bulk add team members via .csv file

    Since this item seems to have died on the vine with an incorrect answer ("We have this" - no you don't), trying to revive it. https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public/suggestions/18240376-improve-add-members-to-team

    Allow bulk adding of team members via .csv file.

    Team Owners should not have to create a Distribution list or be an administrator to run PowerShell to bulk add users to a team.
