Ability to integrate the meeting scheduler with Exchange (for free/busy data and metting room bookings)
Christian Gustafson commented
Can you please provide an update on this feature request?
I would like to see something like the Slack /away Feature but with the additional feature to define the Time like /away for 30 min
And if someone try to chat the answer should respect the already gone time. F.e if one try to to ping you 5 min later Teams should auto answer "He/she is away for about 25 min"
Imagine this feature if you set your "Away" Message for your Holiday Season. "He/She is away for the next 7 Days"

When scheduling a meeting from Teams it should be possible to book rooms the same way as you do in Outlook. Availability should be shown as for people

Ideally, you could do this both ways: free/busy search within Teams, but also having a "New Teams Meeting" button within Outlook (similar to the Skype 4 Biz integration). Then Teams would auto-create room resources in Exchange such that you can specify a team / channel as the location.

Yes - this is a critical function for Skype, in addition, the ability to update your "status" with your out of office reply as S4B does.
The ability to include a room resource, users external to the group, and PSTN call in number would be an important addition to Microsoft Teams
