  1. 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.

      • It's distracting to get a chat message when a meeting has started or ended

        This should be a notification option that you can turn off. Currently you see a chat item for your attention. You go to it only to see that the meeting you just started, or just ended, started or ended. You already know that, and the notification is just wasting your time.

            • Add Location Function

              Please integrate a share location function. This is the only setting which is missing. Nice App. Thumb UP

              • Notification when a team call starts

                When someone calls you from a chat it's very obvious, you get a little pop up window which notifies you.

                However when someone starts a meeting within a team it's far less obvious - could we have the same sort of banner/notification as a chat call?

                • option arrow on OSX native keyboard shortcut overridden by teams

                  Please REMOVE the key binding for option+left/right arrow keys on OSX. The native shortcut moves the cursor word by word (same as ctrl+arrow on windows).... I promise no one wants to navigate to the next tab over with this key binding - please revert this change and don't override any native OSX keybindings.

                  And please implement the "up arrow" to edit last message. This is a time killer not having this feature.
