  1. Better marketing and name recognition

    Our university is using Teams more and more, but it still remains awkward to invite or request communication via the app. "Chat" is too generic, as are "Calls." For example, if I am requesting a meeting with someone, I can offer Zoom (which is recognizable and obvious as to what I'm asking) or <awkwardly fumbles for easy description> 'Microsoft Teams video call.' It's way too much and doesn't flow. I request you rename the features to something more catchy and exclusive, or start advertising a way to phrase it that will become common knowledge (maybe TeamsChat or something better). Also,…

  2. Having the app in background or on another monitor doesn't mean I am away

    If I have the teams app in the background or on another monitor does not mean I am away. Even if i don't move the mouse for some time does not usually mean I am away. Maybe I do other things, but still sitting at my desk and working.
    The status should only change to "away" if i lock my computer, because then I am really "away". Maybe there should be a way to configure the time after when the status changes and one of these options should be "only when locking the computer".

  3. 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?

  6. Automate Availability status; Available post login, Away after signout, Be right back after 30 mins of inactivity

    Automate Availability status; Available post login, Away after signout, Be right back after 30 mins of inactivity.

    My organisation is not staffed by full-time 9-5 employees. We are volunteers and have varying work cycles.

    Like others, I forget to update my status. Surely, a login means you are available? And Sign-out means you aren't and "away." Inactivity for 30 mins means your are temporarily away? These can be automated and not manual updates?

  8. Additional Settings for the Status Option

    Currently the only setting available for Status is the ability to change whether you'd like individuals to see your comment or for you to see theirs. Would love an additional setting where I could determine when the status switches from Active to Away and set a time limit. For example, change status to Away when user has been idle for XX minutes. Currently, if I'm working in another program my status will switch to Away even if I'm still at my computer working. This gives the impression to my boss that I'm not actively working. Another option would be to…

  9. status option

    There should be an option for the status as "offline" or "show offline" so that people don't keep bothering you when you're done for the day.

  12. Filter the Contacts list by status

    As a team member, I would like the ability to filter the Teams contacts list by status so that I can see only those team members who are presently listed as "Available" for immediate consultations.

  13. Have presence detection consider multi desktop

    Have the auto presence detection consider if the windows desktop Teams is on it the current desktop.

    As more people are working at home, and using Teams they are using personal PCs. For me, I separate my work activities and personal stuff using the Windows 10 multiple desktop feature. I have a desktop for work stuff, where I run Teams logged into my Work account. When my work day ends, and I move over to my "personal" desktop I would like teams to detect that and set my status as aways (just as it does when the PC is idle).

  14. Let us control how many minutes pass before our status is set to Away.

    Other software can do this. Let us control how many minutes pass before our status changes.

  18. Better presentations

    Today it is very boring to listen to a ppt presentation over teams since the presentation is the tool and the presenter is not in focus. A presentation should be a support to a presenter. I want to have the option to be able to appear like the attached picture to be a more active part of the presentation.

  19. 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…

  20. a status button that indicates - "feel free to drop by my virtual desk"

    to give a better feel of the spontaneity of just dropping by someone's desk beyond a "chat" message, show a status that means, sure, pick up the phone/video and call me for a quick conversation.
