  1. Want to reset the Microsoft Teams presence by administrators on a regular basis

    *English follows Japanese
    ■Title(件名):
    Microsoft Teams のプレゼンスを管理者側で定期的にリセットしたい
    Want to reset the Microsoft Teams presence by administrators on a regular basis


    ■Description(内容):
    Microsoft Teams のプレゼンスは手動で設定ができるが、連絡が可能なのか退席中なのかの状態を自動で取得したいため、定期的に手動で設定したプレゼンスをリセットしたい。
    テレワークでの運用を進めるにあたり、メンバーの正しいプレゼンスをを確認する必要があるため、管理者側でプレゼンスをリセットする機能の実装を要望します。
    It is possible to set the Microsoft Teams presence manually, but since we’ll like to automatically retrieve the status whether they are available or away, we hope the administrators will be able to reset the manually set presence on a regular basis.
    In order to promote teleworking, we need to know all the members’ presence correctly. Therefore, we would request a functionality to reset the presence from the admin side on a regular basis.

  2. Collect free/busy info via Teams

    I would like admins to control changing free/busy info for users. Also, it would be great if admins can analyze status changes per user including time passed since the previous status change.

  3. Status Text visibility

    show the status message directly so people can see if someone is working remotely. i.e. WFH without having to go into their profile

  4. No solicitar una ubicación esperada

    El reloj de fichar solicita una ubicación esperada, para poder disponer de la grabación de la ubicación del empleado al fichar .
    Sería genial que tan sólo registrara la ubicación (sea cua sea) en el momento de fichar al empezar o acabar su turno.

    Muchas gracias

  5. Availability needs to be user-controllable, not only automatic.

    Currently (August 2019) Teams decides when you are away based on activity on the specific device.

    That is inadequate. Availability should show real life availability, not PC activity.

    Otherwise people might hesitate in contacting us, even though we can be working on another device or even performing another activity just a few inches away from the keyboard.

    In those scenarios we need to be able to place ourselves as Available as most of the time those activities can and should be interrupted to answer an important message.


    On related but not exactly the availability issue, why isn't there an audible…

  6. 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.

  7. 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

  10. 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.

  13. When searching for users that are not Teams/SFB users, is there a way to determine whether the user is activated for Teams or not

    Issue Definition:
    When searching for users that are not Teams/SFB users, is there a way to determine whether the user is activated for Teams or not? Current status shows date 1/1/1 in Teams desktop client and Null in the Teams web client. These users have synced O365 accounts for other O365 products but are not enabled or have licenses for Teams.

    Main Ask: Would like to see an indicator that shows whether the user is a Teams user or not. This will help educate user base so they can identify which users can be interacted with.

  14. Powershell support for call reporting.

    After speaking to support I was surprised this wasn't already a feature for the Skype/Teams reporting built-in to the portal itself.

    We currently have to browse to the portal and generate the same report day in and day out, clicking the same buttons, then formatting the same spreadsheet and finally cutting out the unnecessary data for customers.

    As you well know if the data was available through powershell via the CSonline command set then we could just pipe the data straight into a CSV and provide it straight to the customer, it would literally save a days work over a…

  16. It would be helpful for admins to see which users are following a channel. When tagging the whole channel, it just shows the total.

    I'll get a warning about the total number of followers I am about to notify, but there is not way to see who those followers are. As an admin, I want to know which users are following my team's channels.

  20. Advanced Check In - Check Out with Inclusive Org Chart Support

    The Org Chart feature populated by AD is AWESOME!!! Having it well integrated with a check in/out feature would make the Teams mobile app so efficient for SMBs like ours. Our President has been asking for a custom "company directory/check in check out" mobile app that we would develop internally for years. Since Teams is all about collaboration across the organization, I am also picturing the integration of the online presence baked in this. If Out of the Office Assistant is also right there with it, that would be cherry on top!
