    Skype for Business has this feature when I group my contacts. I'd like to see a list of user's and their Status that have favorited a Channel. This will let me know if they are available or have updated a status to say what location they are at.

    It's been almost 1 year of working on this. Just make a /command inside the channel to see who is here. very simple. /whoshere then show a list like a bot reply to show who has participated in the channel, joined the channel in the past month or whatever.

    And another slight idea that could be good is to use the AD to help people know who's who /whowho (w/ tittle)

    And as you are about, please mark the Owner of the Team with a sign, so everyone knows at a glance when an owner is around to assist the members.

    Can't believe this wasn't included from the get go. So basic. How long does it take to add something so necessary?

    I see that you are working on it, but when I look at the O365 roadmap site, and select "In Development" or "Rolling Out", I don't see an item on there that maps onto this request.

    This is a big deal feature for us coming from HipChat to Teams. In a digital team, quick visual presense checks are essential, and there is not a way to do this easily that I can tell yet.

    Same problem here. I need to see the quick online status of multiple/all team members like I do with SfB. Tough to get folks to switch to something that removes basic features.

    would like to switch to Teams from slack but can't accept to continuously switch between "chat" and "teams" windows. it's such a basic features I can't believe it doesn't exists

    this was probably detailed before, but here is what i would like to see:
    - channel subscribers?
    - online status of the members?

    I have had people insist that MS Teams is not a chat solution because it doesn't have this and the ability to do @here

  • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    This feature is one of the most basic requirements of a chat room. Discord has it, Slack has it. ICQ had it, Yahoo Chat rooms had it. Every other chat service in the world has it. There's no excuse not to have this feature available.

    We are thinking to move from Slack to Teams but this feature is really important for us.

    Also with the @here functionality to wake people up at work.

    Using teams for a project that will end in June. Is there any hope this item will be available before then?

    It's really counterintuitive to set up a communications channel and not know, definitively, who is or is not getting the messages you send to that channel.
