    • Can't update presence on OSX

      When I click my avatar on the top right and change my status to "busy", Teams continues to display "Available".

          • profile photo

            Pull the user's profile photo from Delve if OWA photo is not available.

            We do not use Exchange in our tenant, which causes an error message when a user tries to upload their profile photo. However, all of our users have photos in Delve / SharePoint / etc.

            Please change the photo code to fall back to using the Delve profile photo if the Exchange photo does not exist.

            • How do I "invite" an SME to any specific thread without having to add as a member or guest to the whole group?

              I would like to invite an SME to a specific thread to collaboratively solve a problem. I wouldn't want to add the SME to the group. As a colleague, I would like to invite the SME to provide his/her input to the thread, gain context and provide a reply to it.

              • Rip it and start again!

                If this is to replace skype business, then it is a very poor replacement solution.

                Issues importing business contacts, unable to see who is online easily.

                Not easy for users to see at a glance what we need without all the other junk getting in the way.

                All in all a very poor replacement and we will be looking for a skype style replacement and cancelling the package we are on, possibly a WhatApp style replacement.

                  • Get more people working on your backlog.

                    Consider:
                    You are part of a HUGE HUGE HUGE company yet people are not appreciating your efforts as much as you deserve. Pull some higher resources using your determined confidence and get Teams to support Emojis - morale before usability!!! :D

                    • Provide the ability to view the whole company organisational structure.

                      Provide the ability to view the whole company organisational structure, not just who i report into or who reports into me. At times we get asked to look a the structure to check if its correct and a single view would be great. Yes there are 3rd party tools but I don't see why this cant just be an inherent feature as partial views are already shown.

                      • Expand Who and move to sidebar near the top

                        Leverage the Who Tab to make it easier to find contacts and presence. Add it is a standard button just under Chat and above Teams. Have another Tab, (Just like Collaborators) for Contacts that you can add from your Exchange Contacts, possibly another one for Favourites. Ultimately the ability to create your own Contact Group
                        The reason I keep going back to SfB rather than operate solely out of Teams is the ease with which I can find people. An expanded Who Tab that I can get to in a single Click rather than multiple steps would be great.

                          • Status lag when viewing 'Manage Team' section

                            When clicking on the menu - manage team; it takes between 20 secs - 1.5 minutes to update the status of all the users in the list, whether they are guests or not.

                              Is there any way to identify people with a characteristic? For example, I want to associate a person to a characteristic / area of expertise. Is there any way to do it?
                              Furthermore, is there any way to customize / add areas of expertise?

                                You must be able to remove everything in the conversation. To show that you delete and add names in the TEAMS group do not fill in any function. Then you must also be able to change the Welcome picture.

                                  • Allow to permanently hide the "out of office" banner

                                    Everytime someone changes his status to Away in calendar (holidays...), this banner appears in each conversation where this person is. The banner appears automatically few seconds after having selected the conversation, even if it as been closed earlier. It's really boring... Please allow to remove this banner until next unavailability of this person. Thanks

                                    • I was looking for a way to find online status of our employees. We use this for the receptionist to see who is available for calls / questi

                                      We used Skype for our receptionist(s) convenience.
                                      We look at who is online at their desk - who is marked away (lunch, breaks and so on. I am not sure this product is what we need to use it for. We keep all of our co-workers on a visible contact list it shows their on line status. That way we don't have to chase around the office trying to find someone. Any suggestions
