  1. 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…

    • Powershell support for call reporting.

      After speaking to support I was surprised this wasn't already a feature for the Skype/Teams reporting built-in to the portal itself.

      We currently have to browse to the portal and generate the same report day in and day out, clicking the same buttons, then formatting the same spreadsheet and finally cutting out the unnecessary data for customers.

      As you well know if the data was available through powershell via the CSonline command set then we could just pipe the data straight into a CSV and provide it straight to the customer, it would literally save a days work over a…

      • Add the status for "Off work."

        The "off work" status was available in Skype for Business. This helps a leader identify which team members are temporarily out of office - "Away" status vs. which are gone for the day "Off work."

        • Skype for Business Functionality missing in Teams

          As a consultant I am constantly interacting with people in other organisations, especially video calls with screen sharing. Recent auto upgrade to Teams from Skype for Business has reduced my functionality not increased it.

          • More focus on external contacts

            Overall the Teams approach seems to be focused on collaboration with internal or company peers. For people who spend more than 50% of their time working externally the overall usability of teams features seems like this isn't a priority scenario.

            • A "Headphones On" status

              It has become common-place that developers are wearing headphones while working. Often they are still available for questions, as the "available" status suggests, but will not hear when collegues call out.
              My suggestion is that there should be either
              - an added headphone icon to the "available" status
              - an individual status similar to "available"
              Initially it could be something the user add themselves, but could long term be a solution where Microsoft Teams consider whether your headset is currently active

              • As a shared calendar user I would like to access other users calendars from their card pop up

                Just like you can access the chat, email, organisation, video and call or message the person directly, it would nice to access their calendar from the persons card.

                  • After a user adds a profile pic, it doesn't always appear next to their name in chat and in channels.

                    It appears to work if they immediately added their photo before participating in communication. Maybe the system is caching their initials (the no-photo icon) and not refreshing for an updated photo?

                    • It would be helpful for admins to see which users are following a channel. When tagging the whole channel, it just shows the total.

                      I'll get a warning about the total number of followers I am about to notify, but there is not way to see who those followers are. As an admin, I want to know which users are following my team's channels.

                      • Options in the Teams Chat we can edit.

                        Under Teams Chat I have a bunch of Contacts groups, but they are listed in alphabetical order I would like to be able to rearrange them.

                        Also all groups open in expanded vs collapsed view is there a way to default this to collapsed view?

                        Similar to the way you can in Skype.

                            • Hide offline contacts

                              I miss the functionality of Skype where you can hide all contacts that are not online. The skype groups are much cleaner and consists only of my online contacts. The rest are either away or offline. This function is a must in Teams or else the groups will be cluttered with all the different statuses mixed. You can't get a good overview.

                                  When a chat is open I can see the name of person on the task bar combined with my status of presence. It's confusing, coz I thought it's this person's status.
                                  And please add labels with number of new messages on the taskbar.

                                    • Need the ability to remove people from team chats.

                                      Team chats fill up with notifications when someone is Out of the Office, it is annoying. Having the ability to kick people out of a chat would be a nice feature to have.

                                      • 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.

                                        • Ability to delete or remove "suggested" Teams members.

                                          I don't want to see "suggested" contacts every time I log in to teams, I want to turn off or have the ability to forever HIDE that feature.
