  1. Time and Activity Time Tracking within Teams Chat Rooms

    Is there any talk about adding an activity tracker with timer to Teams integration? Currently investigating the app Clockify, but there is no connector or other integration with Teams.

    For my use case, I'd like users to be able to click a timer to start tracking time spent working on a specific task (client, ticket, administrative, training, etc.) with an option to add "project" and "tag" for granularity. I would also require reporting of some type, both summarized and detailed, by User, Project, Tag.

  2. Availability status control by user (timeouts, outlook sync, presenting mode 'busy', etc)

    Visible status to other users should be in control of the user.
    Setting myself as "available" only for this status to be changeg automatically to "away" after an indertermined timeout is bad.
    As a user, I should be able to decide if I want to appear as "away" or not after a certain timeout, and I should be able to configure this timeout duration.
    Syncing with outlook calendar should be optional, and private/public events should be taken into consideration.
    Receiving notifications or not while presenting / attending a meeting should be optional.
    All in all, more control over availability status,…

  3. Simple, Stop marking me away when i'm not.

    I am not running teams on any other computers
    I have no meetings scheduled in outlook
    I have reset my status in teams
    I manually click Available status
    I manually click Reset status after 1 Week
    I alt-tab away from Teams, continually using the computer
    Within 5 minutes, Teams marks me as away
    When I move the mouse over the teams window, I become available again
    Presence notification telling users I am away whenever i'm using any software other than Microsoft Teams is a complete joke. The internet is rife with complaints about this, Different computer, same issue. Different account,…

  5. Allow users to set the "Off Work" start and stop time

    It would be useful to be able to set an "Off work" period that is automatically set every working day. (e.g. from 06:00pm to 08:00am)

  7. Show the current time of people who are living in different time zones when messaging them

    Working with people around the world, it can help to see what time it is for them. Our team consists of people from at least 5 different time zones and it's hard to keep track who is able to react at certain times and who isn't. With more teams becoming international this could be a really useful feature (slack has already implemented this).

  8. Programar estados de presencia en Microsoft Teams

    Sería conveniente permitir la programación del estado de presencia de Microsoft Teams. Por ejemplo, que un usuario pueda programar manualmente y convertirlo de forma periódica (como cuando generamos una reunión en Outlook) el offline hours en Teams por motivos particulares y personales, en el caso de que esté fuera del horario laboral, y así no recibir ningún tipo de mensaje, llamada o notificación en un dispositivo móvil, en la aplicación de escritorio, etc.

  9. Info on status history like in Skype

    It would be great to have not just a current status for a given contact but an indicator on how long they've been at that status. In Skype, you'd see e.g. "Away 10mins" etc. If they'd been away for a short time they may just gotten coffee and will be right back. If they've been away for hours they are probably gone for the day. I understand some users may find this intrusive so maybe let the user decide if their status history gets published or not.

  12. PC vs. Mobile presence

    In case the participant is on his phone but not on the PC the presence will show Mobile - available. IN case the teams is used on PC the presence will say Available. All other presence states (away, busy, etc...) will be only valid for PC users.

  13. provide a timer, ready/back function

    Provide a timer for breaks. The idea would be to display a timer on everyones screen counting down to zero. When timer is down to zero a ´"Ready" button would appear that participants would click to acknowledge they are back and ready to get going again.
    - Optionally you could use a zero timer to pop the button to use as a generic feedback "ready" button.

  14. Have a different ICON display when on a call

    Currently the red dot represents 2 functions. It means busy or on a call. We would like to have a separate icon for being on a call, for example a red phone icon. This will help users identify quickly if someone is on the phone.

  15. Enable display of pronouns within Meetings

    We have trans employees who are often misgendered in meetings, particularly when there are people present who are not part of their immediate team. It would be useful to have an option in Settings to enter or select a set of pronouns, which then display next to your name during meetings. This would go a long way towards making people feel respected, and help to avoid triggering dysphoria. It would also be useful for folks with "gender neutral" names (e.g. Alex).

  16. Status says away when Teams is not active

    When I am active in another window/program, my Teams will automatically set my status to 'Away'. It does not matter if I manually set my status to 'Available for 2 hours' or anything else. It will set me as 'Away' unless I tab to Teams and move my mouse around. I am often watching training videos or working in different online systems so this happens multiple times a day.

    STATUS SHOULD BE LINKED TO ENTIRE COMPUTER ACTIVITY and not dependent on what you're doing in Teams. This is ridiculous.

  17. Set status message at the same time you set away status

    As a remote worker, I would like to be able to set my status message (like At Lunch") at the same time that I set myself to "away", so that I can notify my team that I am taking lunch without so many mouse clicks!
