    I came looking for this suggestion. I have always thought the People bar is pointless for enterprise, but being able to pin colleagues from Teams to my taskbar would be extremely useful.

    Also using the my people for calling through teams would be very useful, right now the only app for calling through the windows 10 my people is skype

    I think the people bar would be the ideal location for teams. Having a channel selector and file selector would bean excellent way to provide quick access to team resources on the desktop.

    Our company has almost full transitioned to Win10 and Teams and features like this would help show the value integration of these services to our teams members.

    That's a little disappointing. What's the point of introducing a new feature in Windows if Microsoft isn't going to support it with their own application suite?

    I think the people bar has real potential in enterprise but it needs support, it would be a real shame to abandon a potentially useful feature by not making what seems to be a relatively simple change.

    My People needs more support from future-facing internal products like Teams in order to encourage implementation from other major chat providers like Facebook/Twitter

    Agreed, the current integration with Skype personal is nice but a business application for My People would be awesome.
    I'm guessing development on Skype for Business is slowing down so Teams would be the way forward :)
