  2. Allow users to customize away presence timeout

    Allow users to customize away presence timeout like the options in the Skype client. Add: Show me inactive when my computer has been idle for this many minutes. Also Add: Change my status from inactive to Away after this many minutes.

  3. Incorrect status in teams

    We have noticed that our Teams statuses are consistently incorrect. Even when some team members are active in Teams they are shown as "away" or "offline". For example, although I can see that my status is "active", my colleagues see my status as "offline".

    Can you please fix this bug?

    Hi — My apologies for the delay in updating this item. We rolled out a fix a year ago for a specific issue of status changing to away in Teams when you were still active on the device. We thought this had fixed the “incorrect status” issue. From comments below, it sounds like people are still seeing issues.

    If you are still having issues, it would be super helpful if you can capture logs by typing Ctrl + Shift + Alt + 1, and send the file from your downloads folder along with device info and detailed repro steps to teamsml@microsoft.com.

    Thanks all!

  4. appear offline

    I want to access Teams content while able to "appear offline"

    This is a feature request regarding the presence capability versus other offline features that want to use Teams while disconnected.

    This feature allows
    People to do work at off hours without being interrupted.
    People to look or retrieve content which has no concept of presence.

    For those concerned about abuse of an appear offline feature and enabling presence liars, users can still lie and set any of the current presence states with the same intention.

    I can be connected to the network and use Outlook, OneNote, SharePoint, etc. and…

  5. Share live location

    I really like the location feature in 2016 Business Skype. It know when I move between my two facilities at work and it also remembers my home location. This should be a feature in Microsoft Teams.

  6. Tag for status updates

    Skype for Business supports tagging for status updates. It's a really buried feature, but one that is really helpful when trying to get in touch with someone. Would love to make this more easily available in Microsoft Teams to be better able to catch people as they become available (e.g. know when they come in in the morning, when they finish their current meeting, etc.).

  7. disable automatic status

    Add option to disable automatic status. I do not want other people to know what I am doing. I would like to see an option that complete disables the automatic status update.

  8. Change status to away when computer is locked

    When I lock my computer, automatically change my status to away. I don't expect the web version to be able to do this but the client should be able to.

  9. 'Status Unknown' for many users

    A large number of users on many of our user's Teams app shows people as 'Status uknown' when these users are actually online, or even actively engaged in a conversation. Fix this!

  10. Better visibility for custom Status Message

    The new status message feature is great, but it lacks visibility to other users. It would be much more useful to make it visible in the chat area user list, rather than having to hover over a user to find it in the drop down. It would also be great to have it anywhere you can see user presence.

  11. Status not maintained in MS Teams

    The status is not maintained in the MS Teams. If I choose my status to be Do not disturt, it automatically changes to be Online or Away. And most of the time I have to struggle to change my status change in effect.

    Also, we have noticed that our Teams statuses are consistently incorrect. Even when some team members are active in Teams they are shown as "away" or "offline". For example, although I can see that my status is "active", my colleagues see my status as "offline".

    Can you please fix these bugs?

  12. Add User Current Timezone as Part of Status

    With team members traveling and often located across the world, it would be great to have an indicator of what timezone they are currently located in. Ideally, this would be based on their geographical location. If MSFT tracks this via internet connect or some other means, it would be great to display it as part of status or when hovering over the name/icon.

  14. Do Not Disturb unexpectedly changes to Available

    I set myself to "Do Not Disturb"
    I send a message or a chat.
    Teams decides I'm available, and changes me to "Available."
    NO, DND means JUST THAT. Please STOP changing my availability!

    Once your tenant is using UPS (unified presence service), you should no longer have issues where DND changes back to available.

    If you are on UPS, and are experiencing this issue, it would be super helpful if you can capture logs by typing Ctrl + Shift + Alt + 1, and send the file from your downloads folder along with any details to teamsml@microsoft.com.

    Thanks all!

  15. WORK FROM HOME status icon

    This proposition is to simply add an extra status icon (top left of the portrait) to signify WFH. (like a Home pin)

    Given that so many people in the world are working from home, knowing that some are from home and some are from office would be great!

  17. Need a way to bulk add multiple Team members at once by copying a string of email IDs (separated by a delimiter)

    Need a way to bulk add multiple Team members at once by copying a string of email IDs (separated by a delimiter) ;
    At present I have to individually add each and every email Id separately; that's very very time consuming;
    I am surprise Microsoft failed to think about this in the first place.

  18. Request to implement presence privacy mode

    I would request to implement presence privacy mode in Microsoft Teams same as Skype for Business.
    Because I would like to prevent junior employees from seeing executive/senior members’ presence information when they search staff information.

  19. status

    my status constantly changes to away every time i navigate to a different open application. it would be nice if skype and teams could reflect the same status, or if teams could simply stop randomly signing me out.

  20. Status option

    There should be an option provided to select and set one particular status and it should remain same until changed manually (the way skype provides option to set availability).
    Also, timeline to set away status should be changeable.
    Sometimes app displays the duration for how long the person is away and sometime it just displays away status. This should be controllable.
