How can we make Microsoft Teams better?

Integrate Presence in Outlook contacts from Teams

Whenever Team is running the presence should show on the Outlook contacts. When composing emails and adding users, it should show the presence of Team. It currently works only for skype for business.

        Can you please update this response to indicated that this is now resolved? It appears to be working now. In Teams in settings there is check box. A few others have also commented this below.

        Has this not been included in the Mac version? I don't see "Register Teams as the chat app for Office" in my Teams settings.

        It would be appreciated if you can add an option to change status as offline similar to Skype 2010/16 etc.

        It seems the issue can be resolved by checking box "Register Teams as the chat app for Office" from Teams client --> Settings --> General

        Is there any update to this - the presence in Outlook (Click to Run) is very inconsistent.. Is there a clear time line for this - ?

      • Mike Yam commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        The presence status shows correctly only when we re-launch the Outlook. If someone change the presence status in Teams. THe outlook contact card still shows the previously status until we restart the Outlook.

        It has to be fixed.

        any news on that ? my users doesn't want to move to Teams if the presence status doesn"t work well like previously with Skype

      • LisaJo commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        This is still not working right for the coexistence modes (SfBwithTeamsCollab, etc.). The presence between Outlook, Skype and TEAMS is not consistent and, in Outlook specific, OWA and desktop, there's no status whatsoever displayed.

      • Mike Yam commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Anyway to apply "Register Teams as the chat app for Office" to all users? This is crucial during the move from SfB to Teams.

      • Stace Hamilton commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        The Register Teams as the chat app for Office (requires restarting Office applications) setting is great but would love a way to enable for everyone via reg or gpo.

        Internal users now show presence, but federated users do not.
        (Federated users in other organizations also do not show their name, Title etc, cannot be voice called - tooltip says an extra license is needed, and can't be added to contacts). The product is not ready for organizations which used Lync / SfB with the outside world.
