Visibility of teams custom status messages
knowing your other team members status (ESP. CUSTOM STATUS MESSAGES) ARE CRITICAL for the way we utilize this application at our business. It is an annoyance you have to hover over someone's icon/status color/etc. to see their custom status message. It would be fantastic if you could always see what is says. Instead of seeing what the last message was (under the chats tab), you see their custom status message.

It's insane that this isn't in the system at default. We use this all the time, especially now that some are working from home and others aren't. We use this to let people know our working status and this is a huge hit compared to skype for business! This should be Implemented ASAP!
I can't believe this feature doesn't exist. Our staff used to use Skype and they had this feature and loved it. They could set their status to say "out to lunch be back at 1:00pm" or "teleworking today" or "reach me on my cell". I simply can not see "at a glance" scrolling through my staff members what their custom status is. PLEASE FIX THIS!!

This would be a great feature, knowing what your team member is doing in an instant would be nice and helpful during the workday!

The lack of this is a big concern for us, too. Quick visibility is imperative to our efficiencies and production for many companies using Teams for business use; especially the larger ones, I'd think.

Would like to see this capability in the Apple IOS app as well as the desktop.

I completely agree! If the status could stay visible that would be great!

It's really useful (and fun frankly) to scan through everyone's statuses. Would love to have this Skype/Lync feature in Teams!
skype had this functionality why would teams have less though
