    • 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.

      • 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…

        • 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.

              • 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.

                  • 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…

                    • 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.

                            ***************
                            ■Description(内容):
                            現在の Teams の機能では、チャットの連絡先に一人ずつメンバーを追加することはできるが、個々で操作をする必要があるため、手間がかかる。
                            そのため、Office 365 で作成したグループのメンバーを一括で追加する機能や管理者が連絡先を一元管理する機能を要望します。

                            It takes time and effort to add members to chat contact information one by one.

                            For improvement of usability, provide the ability to bulk add multiple members in a group created in Office 365. Or allow admins to manage contact information centrally.

                            Thank you for your consideration.

                                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…

                                  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.

                                    • 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.

                                      • 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.

                                        • 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.
