  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. 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"

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  8. Groups Contact list

    The ability to add AAD or AD synced Mail Enabled Security groups or Office 365 Groups in contacts. This functionality is available in S4B. It needs to be added to Teams so contacts are dynamically added in Teams contacts list under groups like departments.

  9. Better visibility for custom Status Message

    The new status message feature is great, but it lacks visibility to other users. It would be much more useful to make it visible in the chat area user list, rather than having to hover over a user to find it in the drop down. It would also be great to have it anywhere you can see user presence.

  10. Associate user presence in other application using Teams client

    The following article says that, to show presence in other applications, Skype for Business must be installed. But I don’t want to use Skype for Business, so it would be great if you can improve this behavior to use Teams for user presence association with other applications.

  11. Change status to away when computer is locked

    When I lock my computer, automatically change my status to away. I don't expect the web version to be able to do this but the client should be able to.

  12. Visibility of teams custom status messages

    knowing your other team members status (ESP. CUSTOM STATUS MESSAGES) ARE CRITICAL for the way we utilize this application at our business. It is an annoyance you have to hover over someone's icon/status color/etc. to see their custom status message. It would be fantastic if you could always see what is says. Instead of seeing what the last message was (under the chats tab), you see their custom status message.

  13. Prevent automatic presence / status changes

    Please can there be a setting to turn off automatic presence / status changes, and also allow the presence setting to stay the same if Teams is closed or reopened or the computer is restarted. It is very frustrating and disruptive to work that the presence can change automatically by itself

  14. 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.

  15. Request to implement presence privacy mode

    I would request to implement presence privacy mode in Microsoft Teams same as Skype for Business.
    Because I would like to prevent junior employees from seeing executive/senior members’ presence information when they search staff information.

  17. external chat with more functionality

    Chat with external users needs to have added functionality in order to replace Skype for Business. Images, formatting and emojis are a bare minimum of what is to be expected in a modern application.

  18. Teams user availability status does not show up in outlook.

    Skype was linked with Outlook to show Skype user status of everyone in an email. With Skype not signed in,outlook does not shows user status from MS Teams. One has to go manually in MS Teams and search for the persons in email to know their availability status. This feature of skype should be helpful to have in teams also.
    I have attached 2 screenshots - 1. Showing User availability when Skype was signed in and 2. Showing User availability blanked out when Skype was logged out but Teams was signed in.

  19. Status option

    There should be an option provided to select and set one particular status and it should remain same until changed manually (the way skype provides option to set availability).
    Also, timeline to set away status should be changeable.
    Sometimes app displays the duration for how long the person is away and sometime it just displays away status. This should be controllable.

  20. Different status color when user is busy/in meeting while different when in call

    Different status color when user is busy/in meeting while different when in call - It will help decide if user to be called directly (as of now it is not clear from status if user should be called)
