Ability to see who is in a channel
Ability to see who is currently in a channel. Hipchat and Slack have this feature
Thanks everyone, I’ve sent your feedback over to the Framework team. They are working on a solution. Will let you know as this progresses.
This is basic functionality and the fact that the developers didn't consider it or seem to understand what people want to see is embarrassing.

What is the status of this? This a feature that would be valuable in a variety of use cases for our organization.

I want to know who is subscribed to a channel so I know if the message I'm sending is reaching everyone who needs to read it.

Do you want to see who is presently in a specific CHANNEL or just in TEAMS in general?
Why do you want this — what is the situation you’re in where this would aid you. Understanding your user scenario will help us meet your needs!
I would like to see it for Teams. Because, I'm addressing certain issues to each relevant person in team, and I need tho know if this person is really online or not.
Juraj Belina commented
can you please tell us about ETA of this feature?
Ironically, so does Skype/Lync. This is kind of like being in a room blindfolded and not knowing who is coming or going. Could be a recipe for disaster if something sensitive was mentioned. We just started using Teams and I hope they don't nix it due to this. Even the solution is bad as it is up to the user to set their status manually unless I'm missing something.
Not to be a putz, but it's been 3 months since your reply;+}
Need it for our company. it's worthless without it
I love teams but without this we cant use it in the company :/
I can't think of any other chat application that didn't have this feature, that fact that I have to use the mouse, click and type just to see if someone is online shows that no thought went into this. Maybe they just needed left it out to make sure they could fill half of the screen with empty space
Any updates on this????
Do you have any ETA for the solution?
Thanks in advance
any updates on this?
Any timeframe for when this solution might be put in place?
Please add this yesterday, thank you.
I second the discord interface sentiment. Do what discord does. Has all the active users in the channel.

Specific team/channel - Why? We have team members in different cities and countries. It would be easy to see at a glance who is online and available and if needed click their name to move to a private chat..
This is a much needed feature, one idea we have has is to have a drop in IT Helpdesk scenario where user could ask questions. To be able to see if anyone is there to assist and the revesrse to see if there is anyone who needs assistance. Or if they are set to busy but in the channel so someone would not expect an immidiate response

We need to be able to see who's in a channel to know who's available to answer a question! Being able to @here or @all to address everyone that's in that channel would also be helpful, but only if you knew who was in that channel! Just copy what Slack or HipChat have... it's a very simple idea.

It's been said a dozen times, but unfort there's no way to +1 a comment so we can get a count of people who agree ... so here it goes again...
Just copy slack.

Specific Team or Channel for sure...we need to be able to see who is online and available to answer a question/address an issue, etc. without having to jump over to chat or try to view everyone in Teams.
