  1. Ability to Search for Microsoft Teams Contacts Using Main Search Bar

    Hello,

    Hope everyone is doing well.

    May we please suggest a Microsoft Teams feature to be able to synchronize Microsoft Outlook contacts with Microsoft Teams, Microsoft Teams contacts with Microsoft Outlook and to be able to search for both internal and external contacts (from address book), using the Microsoft Teams main search bar, located at the top center of the screen?

    Thank you very much.

    • Be Right Back turns off automatically when it detects mouse or keyboard activity.

      In Skype for Business, there is a useful feature where your status will go back to available from 'Be Right Back', when the mouse or keyboard is used again. This would be useful in Teams.

      • Need a way to bulk add multiple Team members at once by copying a string of email IDs (separated by a delimiter)

        Need a way to bulk add multiple Team members at once by copying a string of email IDs (separated by a delimiter) ;
        At present I have to individually add each and every email Id separately; that's very very time consuming;
        I am surprise Microsoft failed to think about this in the first place.

        • Real time Location tracking

          Many Teams have team members out on site or in various locations. It would be great to be able to get real time live location data allowing say an admin or head office or Team coordinator to direct the best resources to the right place and help colleagues help each other. Similar layout as say Life 360 and would be great if you could share directions with team members or a team leader can share a Route for the day or the week making real team integration.

            There is a greater inconvenience by not having an "Appear Offline" status so that one can keep working undisturbed in "Offline" status. Absence of this feature in Corporate networks is a big let down

            • The status icon in teams is updated much too slowly

              I think you need to approach the status indicator in teams differently. This is a feature that is very important and I don't think it's getting enough attention or focus.

              For example, it takes up to 5 minutes to show teams as "away" even if your computer is locked. If it is locked, you should immediately be shown as "away". Usually by the time someone will show as away (going to the bathroom or at a meeting) a lot of the time, I won't even know they were away until they have gotten back.

              This brings up another issue. The…

                  • All ability to modify Contact information in Teams Client

                    When viewing contacts in Teams, it would be great to be able to directly edit the team, for example, if the contact / speeddial is just shown as an email address - be good to be able to edit the details and save back

                    • Display who has read a message on a channel or private chat

                      Many collaboration tools, such as WebEx Teams, display an icon for the people that have read a message on a Team chat (channel) or private messages.

                      It helps people know that your message has been read.

                        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.

                            • Teammanager-View on Calendars of Teammembers

                              We would need an overview of a list of team members in the form of a spreadsheet display where I can see the availability of team member on a daily, weeky or monthly basis. It would be perfect if we could set the minimum absence length of a meeting or so that would be displayed in the overview. For example: show only meeting / absences longer than 2 hours. Adding users could be based on groups and / or add / remove individual users. Display-color of the absence could be selected on the type of absence in the users calendar.

                                  • Restriction on participants in a chat group !!

                                    Hello Team, Recently we moved from CISCO Jabber to MS Teams and 1 restriction we found here is that in a chat group, the maximum number of participants is restricted to 50. For any organization (atleast here), we have more than 50 people who are needed to be in a chat group and not channels, as that is separate option. I would suggest to increase that number to a significant number as this is used at enterprise level where we can have more than 50 people working and required in the chat group.

                                    Also, if a chat is needed to…

                                    • When searching for users that are not Teams/SFB users, is there a way to determine whether the user is activated for Teams or not

                                      Issue Definition:
                                      When searching for users that are not Teams/SFB users, is there a way to determine whether the user is activated for Teams or not? Current status shows date 1/1/1 in Teams desktop client and Null in the Teams web client. These users have synced O365 accounts for other O365 products but are not enabled or have licenses for Teams.

                                      • Improvements NEEDED for "Contacts"

                                        For the "Contacts" in the "Chat" tab. Have ability like S4B to add Distribution groups. Also have ability to start a group chat from these groups, same as S4B. You don't always need a "Team" room for a quick group chat.
                                        Also need ability to move and sort these groups manually. Currently no way to sort manually, it does it automatic alphabetically.
                                        Every time you leave the "Contacts" in "Chat" and return all the groups are expanded. These should not auto expand, they should stay minimized until the user expands them manually when needed.

                                        • Provide the ability to bulk add contact information for chat in Microsoft Teams

                                          *English follows Japanese
                                          ■Title(件名):
                                          Teams のチャットの連絡先を一括で登録したい

                                          Provide the ability to bulk add contact information for chat in Microsoft Teams
                                          ***************
                                          ■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.
