    • More status options, custom status, and Out of Office

      MORE STATUS
      I like the status options in S4B, and so does my boss. It will be important to my boss before accepting the use of MS Teams widely to have a broader range of statuses. Missing statuses are:
      * In a meeting
      * In a conference call
      * In a call
      * Presenting
      * Be right back
      * Off Work

      Particularly of importance are "Be right back" and "off work". "Do not disturb" is probably sufficient for "in a meeting", "in a call" and "presenting". But, it sure is nice that S4B auto-detects those three statuses (for the most…

        • 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.

          • Tag for status updates

            Skype for Business supports tagging for status updates. It's a really buried feature, but one that is really helpful when trying to get in touch with someone. Would love to make this more easily available in Microsoft Teams to be better able to catch people as they become available (e.g. know when they come in in the morning, when they finish their current meeting, etc.).

            • 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.

                • 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"

                    A fix for this is being worked on. We hope to have a fix in internal Microsoft rings soon for testing. I don’t have a timeline for release externally at this point, but will keep you posted.

                  • 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…

                      • Integrate Outlook Calendar Meeting Presence

                        In Cisco Jabber and other IM agents, you can link your Presence Status to all meeting types, not just Skype or Teams meetings. The functionality of showing that "I'm in a meeting" on my status indicator in Teams would be very beneficial for transitioning teams to this service over something like Cisco Jabber or Spark.

                          When I @mention a team member it displays them as Last Name, First name which really interrupts the conversational flow. Slack lets me edit my display name.

                              Once your tenant is using UPS (unified presence service), you should no longer have issues where DND changes back to available.

                              If you are on UPS, and are experiencing this issue, it would be super helpful if you can capture logs by typing Ctrl + Shift + Alt + 1, and send the file from your downloads folder along with any details to teamsml@microsoft.com.

                              Thanks all!

                                • 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.

                                      • disable automatic status

                                        Add option to disable automatic status. I do not want other people to know what I am doing. I would like to see an option that complete disables the automatic status update.

                                        • 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.
