    • Teams Presence should be 'real-time'.

      Having presence delays of up to 4 minutes makes presence largely useless. Having to resort back to typing 'are you free now' after calls, because I can't tell if they are still in the meeting, or have started another meeting or call. Or trying to call somebody and get rejected and a message saying "I'm in a call"

      • Integrate Presence in Outlook contacts from Teams

        Whenever Team is running the presence should show on the Outlook contacts. When composing emails and adding users, it should show the presence of Team. It currently works only for skype for business.

        • 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…

            • Add geolocation

              Add the geolocation possibility on the smartphone apps and on the desktop app as well.
              So the user can find out where other team members are located.
              The user must have the possibility to share his position or not with other members (for privacy or security reasons).
              When we click on the position of the user, the possibility to see the position on a map is also needed.

              • Add "What's happening today?" Status

                Skype for Business has a "What's happening today?" custom status under their name which users can write custom messages such as "Teleworking" or "At Lunch". Teams should have this also.

                      • Display presence in Outlook with Teams without using Skype for Business

                        Currently, Skype for Business client is required to display the user's presence information in Outlook.
                        I would like to be able to display presence in Outlook with only Teams without using Skype for Business client.

                        • Teams presence syncing to OWA presence

                          Would it be possible to improve the consistency with presence in TEAMS and OWA? We currently have intermittent issues with the presence indicator in Teams not being the same as OWA.

                              • Alert when available

                                I would like Teams to monitor a persons availability status and alert me when they become available. This works kind of like an automatic redialer. It saves me the problem of monitoring someone's presence "manually" when I am trying to get in touch with them.

                                      • Integrate Outlook Calendar Meeting Presence

                                        In Cisco Jabber and other IM agents, you can link your Presence Status to all meeting types, not just Skype or Teams meetings. The functionality of showing that "I'm in a meeting" on my status indicator in Teams would be very beneficial for transitioning teams to this service over something like Cisco Jabber or Spark.

                                        • 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.
