  2. Lag In Presence/Status Update

    The presence update is laggy, even in very simple scenarios. I made a call which changed me to "On a Call", then hung up. It took about a minute after the call for my icon to change back to Available. Strangely, I could see the correct status if I pulled up my profile.

  3. Multiple users editing in Excel & Word

    When multiple users open excel via teams, while working and another user filter then the excel version I am working on also filters.
    In Google Sheets all users work on there own sheet but see other user initials but nothing happens when other users filter the sheet.

  4. '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!

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. Display presence in Outlook with Teams without using Skype for Business

    Currently, Skype for Business client is required to display the user's presence information in Outlook.
    I would like to be able to display presence in Outlook with only Teams without using Skype for Business client.

  8. Groups Contact list

    The ability to add AAD or AD synced Mail Enabled Security groups or Office 365 Groups in contacts. This functionality is available in S4B. It needs to be added to Teams so contacts are dynamically added in Teams contacts list under groups like departments.

  9. 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.

  10. time zone status

    Our Teams members travel between different time zones often.

    Aside from knowing the status of my Team member, knowing in which time zone they currently reside would be beneficial.

    Especially, being able to see the time zones for all the team members on the team members tab.

  11. Control auto-status changes.

    The user needs to be able, in the Teams client, to better control their status. For instance, there is no way to control when and how the status changes based on different states the user may be in. For example, even though I am logged into Teams, using the desktop client, and the system is not locked, it still sets me to "Away". There is no control for this behavior and it is not welcome because I am in fact there and available.

    Likewise, it should be able to tie into Exchange Online and see what my calendar looks like.…

  13. Make an invisible status

    It would be nice if there was an "invisible" status that shows you offline/disconnected but still made you able to browse your team's content

  14. 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.

  15. Teams presence syncing to OWA presence

    Would it be possible to improve the consistency with presence in TEAMS and OWA? We currently have intermittent issues with the presence indicator in Teams not being the same as OWA.

  16. switch status from taskbar

    I want to change my status from the taskbar.
    I now can only see my current status when I right klick the icon in the taskbar. Would be nice to be able to switch status right in that context menu without having to start teams just for that

  18. Seen by...

    It would be awesome to see who has seen a post, possibly by simply showing that on the post for everyone to see or a bitton (like ”like”) that only states that avspecific person has seen this post or comment.
