  2. Allow users to customize away presence timeout

    Allow users to customize away presence timeout like the options in the Skype client. Add: Show me inactive when my computer has been idle for this many minutes. Also Add: Change my status from inactive to Away after this many minutes.

  3. appear offline

    I want to access Teams content while able to "appear offline"

    This is a feature request regarding the presence capability versus other offline features that want to use Teams while disconnected.

    This feature allows
    People to do work at off hours without being interrupted.
    People to look or retrieve content which has no concept of presence.

    For those concerned about abuse of an appear offline feature and enabling presence liars, users can still lie and set any of the current presence states with the same intention.

    I can be connected to the network and use Outlook, OneNote, SharePoint, etc. and…

  4. 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…

  5. Microsoft Graph presence API

    currently you can only query the present status via the API interface.

    It would also be very important for providers who want to dock their tools to MS teams that the present status can also be set via the API interface.

    is there any information about when this will be possible via the API interface?

  6. Integrate status message and status

    When I set a status message, I also want to pick a status to go with it (available, busy, away, etc.). But that's not currently an option in the UI.

    "Clear status message after" should apply to this status. When the time is up, the status should go back to what it would have been.

  7. 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…

  8. WORK FROM HOME status icon

    This proposition is to simply add an extra status icon (top left of the portrait) to signify WFH. (like a Home pin)

    Given that so many people in the world are working from home, knowing that some are from home and some are from office would be great!

    The team is happy to announce that this functionality is now available through the Presence Graph API which is now in public Beta! We have additional functionality planned for the API so please keep checking back for updates.

    Please note that this is a beta version of the API and may be subject to change. Use of these APIs in production applications is not supported.

    - Online documentation: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/graph/api/resources/presence?view=graph-rest-beta

    Enjoy!

  10. Make user presence controllable for internal users and external users

    It would be great if we can have Presence privacy mode feature like Skype for Business.
    Furthermore, internal users and external user are controlled at the same time in the Presence privacy mode.
    Therefore, a function to control the presence separately for those users would be appreciated.

  11. Teams presence API

    The goal is to have Teams presence API improved for developers to implement better interoperability and synchronization with other applications with user presence like Contact and Call Centers
    - Subscribing Teams presence for all organization users
    - Changing Teams user’s presence on behalf of the users using impersonation
    - Receiving a notification when Teams users’ presence changes (Available, DND, Busy, Off work) and when users’ call states change “In-a-Call”, “In-a-Meeting”

    The similar presence integration is already available for Skype for Business (UCMA) https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/skype-sdk/ucma/unified-communications-managed-api-ucma-5-0-sdk-documentation

  12. A function for user to set preferred time intervals to switch presence status

  13. 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"

  15. List of attendees/non-attendees

    I love the ability to get a structure for the meeting in OneNote (list of attendees, link to meeting, etc) BUT would be great to have here who actually attended and who did not. Right now we have to go through the list and work out who attended/didn't attend. Would be fantastic if Teams/OneNote could do this for us.

  17. 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.

  18. Kuando BusyLights

    Teams Needs to allow a connector to be developed for Kuando Busylights. They are used in MANY open office arangements and companies can't transition to Teams from SfB until the connector is developed. To do that Microsoft needs to release the call and presence API documentation.

  19. Status based on Skype Status

    If we are sharing something on Skype and the Skype status shows up as busy, the Teams status should also show up as busy automatically. Can this be done?
