Add location AD to search capability
Currently in Skype you can search for individuals by location from AD, then you can select a user based a search results. Very helpful to find individuals at a specific location and/or department -- would like to see this feature enabled in Teams. Currently you have to know exactly who you are trying to IM in advance.

We have had requests for this functionality as well from some employees that used this feature. It would be useful.
Why would Microsoft take away a capability that was in Skype for Business? I am in favor of getting the all searchable attributes in Microsoft Teams too.
Yes please. We are also moving from Skype to Teams and really need this feature.
This would be extremely helpful
This would make our new receptionist life a lot easier, since she does not know the names yet.
Agree! And agree with Steve.

As I've been moving more users over from Skype to Teams, this has come up repeatedly. Staff used skype to search for people by Office, Department, or Title fairly regularly, and this doesn't seem to be possible in Teams.
My first thought was to use the Who bot for this, but it doesn't seem to be able to answer questions of this nature.
