  1. Contacts as default rather than Recent

    The new contact list is a great addition and I believe that for some it will be used more than the recent conversations tab. So I think an option to set it as default or having Teams remember which one was used last would be a good idea.

  2. Be able to see status message under contact name

    In Skype, I could see the status message under the contact name if I change a setting to give each contact multiple lines of visibility. I would like to be able to see the status message under their contact name

  3. Show the status/presence of people on their photo when searching from the command bar

    When searching for people on the command bar, it doesn't show their presence on the photo next to their name.

    When trying to use a shortcut such as /call it would be useful to know the presence of the person before initiating a call. If they are away, busy etc then it affects the decision of whether I want to try calling them.

  5. status away

    Skype shows a status of how long someone is away so at a glance I can see where people are. I have to hover over each person's name in Teams to see same thing. It's not terrible but I hate it when features are taken away and there appears no way to enable them. Knowing how long a status is flipped is actually quite useful. The Skype designers apparently knew this.

  8. Better new Team Member Welcome

    Allow Team Owners to provide better guidance to new Team Members.

    Many admins use the Wiki page or a OneNote page pinned as a Tab in Teams to provide guidance as to the purpose of a Team (in the general Channel) or the purpose/mission of a Channel.

    Creating a Conversation to announce this Wiki/OneNote page is a good way to call attention to these guide pages. However, when a new team member joins down the road, it's cumbersome finding that Conversation & updating it to bring it to the most recent Conversation, allowing the new team member to see it…

  9. Please enable the ability to edit contact information within Contacts under Calls without going back to Outlook to edit a contact.

    One currently has to go into Outlook to edit a contacts and contacts are not immediately sync'd between the two applications. Please allow more edit functionality within Teams and sync between both Outlook and Teams when a contact is edited in real time.

  10. Make all participants Attendees

    Just like there is a button for Muting all participants besides the owner, I would like to be able to make all participants into Attendees. Even better, when creating a video conference, it should be an option that everyone who joins is automatically an attendee

  11. Chat Contacts Groups should stay collapsed when navigating away and coming back

    The Chat Contacts Groups should remain collapsed if I collapse it, go to Chat and then come back Currently you have to collapse each group every time you click away from the contacts tab and come back. This should be an easy fix, but could make the chat groups more useful.

  12. I like to view contact groups in collapsed mode

    I have created a few contact groups in Teams. Whenever I switch from Recent to Contacts in Chat, I expect to see the contact groups in a collapsed mode. I have to manually collapse every group to find my last group at the end. I prefer not to scroll down long.

  14. contact card

    Why doesn't Teams support the contact card feature everywhere? For example, if I am in a threaded conversation with individuals I cannot right click on an individual and get their contact card.

  15. Ability to add O365 Group to the Invite People box

    Currently not able to add anything but a user object in the Invite People box when creating a meeting in Teams. In order to see free/busy via Scheduling Assistant, you need to add all users individually.

  16. Add "Idle Time" (Away, Offline) to Teams like Skype

    Since Skype is going away, please add the "Idle Time" feature back to Teams. The info provided in Skype is really useful right now with more and more virtual teams. i.e., if someone has been away for a few hours, they probably won't respond to your email right away. Or vice versa - they've been away 15min in a meeting, so will be back. May seem like small feature, but helps everyone actually feel connected instead of dots behind a chat screen.

  17. Calendar tab for Person

    In the Person view (when you open a contact and see tabs for Conversation, Files, Organization and Activity) also have a tab for Calendar, which views that persons calendar.

    This would allow you to quickly peek into the calendar to see when the person is available, and what the person is currently doing if the calendar is shared

  18. Contacts Need to Sync with Company GAL

    Sync for GAL doesn't work correctly in Teams, this needs fixed for any company that currently uses the GAL otherwise it's next to impossible to adopt Teams.
