Ability to see who is in a channel
Ability to see who is currently in a channel. Hipchat and Slack have this feature
This feature item is still in the works. We will keep you posted as we have new info from the feature team.
why not just add a shortcut: suggestion: when in a channel click CTRL+M and get to the same list that currently takes 2 clicks (click dots, then click members)
Currently, it requires multiple steps (click 3 dots, click manage team)
or better, make a link like in Skype for Business (isn't MS Teams replacing it?), just add a link that says "# participants" and you can click it to see the full list.
I am not sure I understand the request or maybe it's a miss labeling of "Manage Team" and it should be "View Team". If I go to a Team and click on the... then Manage Team, it shows who the owners are and the Members and guests, and their status. If I am a member only and click Add member, it prompts me to contact the admin.
If I am in a channel and want to be sure certain users are aware of something I post, I @ them.
definitely needed for channels, at a glance I currently cannot see who is online and receiving my messages, basic functionality...
Isn't this an absolutely basic feature?
When I think about posting to a team and can't see who is in it, my automatic reaction is to say forget this and send an email instead... as I need to know that certain people will get it.
I would personally feel pretty sheepish if I developed or was responsible for a tool that was missing something so basic and important...

Hey Alex, any update on when this very fundamental and basic feature of a chat platform will be implemented?
Until then, I'm really not comfortable using any "Teams" in MSTeams and stick strictly to messaging people directly.

Hi Alex, any idea when this feature will be implemented? Three years seems like enough time to evaluate and decide whether it's worth adding to the roadmap. It's quite humourous that a tool written specifically to allow people to collaborate, doesn't let you know who's in the room with you.
@Alex - Yeah, when can we expect this very basic feature?
@Alex - When?
Glad to hear, this is so BASIC, I need this ASAP. Otherwise, I may as well just email people.
Unbelievable that this is a missing feature especially when Microsoft has forced us as a company to "upgrade" to Microsoft Teams without any notice. And this is supposed to be the replacement to SfB? Really?? As an IT professional I'm getting so tired of the ****-show that is Microsoft. I'm ready to ditch MS completely and start working with Linus, AWS, Google, Slack, and others. (Note that this is me trying to be nice and not curse up and down).

With the expanded adoption of Teams, this is becoming more and more a necessity.

Love it - 3 years since feature request, !!7600!! votes and still not introduced.
WE have a virtual office and use Skype for Business. We need to have the same functionality as per attached image that shows team members and their status and note on thier work.

Can't wait until this feature is implemented in the Chat area. Seems like a lot of basic functionality is missing there. Would also be nice to drag and drop contacts and sort/organize how I want. I would also like an option to pop out the entire chat portion to a new window.
I agree, we alsu use Slack + Attendancebot to see members status - who is in office, who is on vaccation or any other status
I agree that this is what I would consider basically functionality. Teams currently feels like a message board that people can post and reply to, rather than an fluid stream of communication (chat). A large part of this communication is knowing who I'm talking to and being able to see if they're online or not. I could essentially be posting into an empty channel at the moment.
ETA please? This is essential.
We also use SLACK because of this feature. We can immediately to see which is at office and which is at meeting or on vacation/sick ect
Ray Butler commented
@here any updates on this please ;)
An ETA would be nice. It's difficult to convince my users to switch without this basic feature.
