  1. Like button colour change

    Its better to change the color of the like button after liking the messages in Teams. Its very hard to identify whether we liked a content or not.

  2. Keep showing Outlook presence even when I switched to external tenant which I’ve been invited as a guest

    Currently you can’t see the right presence on Outlook when you switch your Teams tenant to the external tenant which you’ve been invited to as a guest, and Presence unknown will be shown in Outlook. It would be great if Outlook could show the correct status even when switching account in Teams to the guest account.

  3. Let me choose if I want to share my availability with external contacts

    I don't want external people to see my availability - when I'm 'green' I want to be available to my people internally and not deluged by externals 'stalking' me. Let me have the option to share my availability with an external contact

  4. Users outside the organization can view status messages

    Status messages should be implemented with the ability to set the scope of display, such as within an organization or a team

  5. Provide API so headset manufacturers can set status

    I am told that there is currently no way for headset manufacturers to set the status like they currently can do in skype for business.
    ie. When we are in a call on the headset on another device, allow the headset to indicate in teams the user is on a call.

  8. Add a report for managers to see what the online presence is for home workers over the week/day

    When the company is virtual, its important to track new starters are actually working and not taking advantage of home working to do a bit of shopping etc. Could do with a report to track that.

  9. Knowing who is online/available at a glance.

    I can't see the status of all our users at one time in Teams. Skype was a management tool you took away without warning, replacing it with a tool that does not offer the same functionality. I am a small business owner, happy with the functionality we had.Why couldn't Microsoft anticipate a need for this feature (aren't all the features of their software documented?) and make sure it was in Teams before they forced us to switch? Why does Microsoft constantly force their users to do whatever they want, rather than allowing the users to do what they want? It's…

  11. a timeline view posibility of all chats is missing, it is just the last person not the last chat

    Make a functionality to see chats in Team in a true timeline of chats itself not just the last new person. Meaning when using multiple chats with different persons there is no timeline it is just sorted per person. It would be better to have a real timeline of chats and close old chats automatically if not used for a period of time.

  12. Feature that admins can check the presences for all members

    We would like to utilize Teams for checking employee’s attendances in our org.
    So, it would be great if we could have a feature that admins can check every members’ presence from the admin center.

  15. hide free busy for external partenaire

    Hide free/busy for external partenaire.
    The goal of this idea is to hide the user's free busy for external partenaire when you do a federation with a partenaire. Without this option we can't make any federation with any partenaire.

  17. The status icon in teams is updated much too slowly

    I think you need to approach the status indicator in teams differently. This is a feature that is very important and I don't think it's getting enough attention or focus.

    For example, it takes up to 5 minutes to show teams as "away" even if your computer is locked. If it is locked, you should immediately be shown as "away". Usually by the time someone will show as away (going to the bathroom or at a meeting) a lot of the time, I won't even know they were away until they have gotten back.

    This brings up another issue. The…

    Like in Skype, you can put your status to always available when you are connected, even if you have a calendar appointment or anything else

  20. Teammanager-View on Calendars of Teammembers

    We would need an overview of a list of team members in the form of a spreadsheet display where I can see the availability of team member on a daily, weeky or monthly basis. It would be perfect if we could set the minimum absence length of a meeting or so that would be displayed in the overview. For example: show only meeting / absences longer than 2 hours. Adding users could be based on groups and / or add / remove individual users. Display-color of the absence could be selected on the type of absence in the users calendar.
