    • 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.…

        • Presence Issues

          From a user who has been using Skype for Business for the past 3+ years, the sole fact we still don't have some basic features in Teams such as Tagging users for Status Changes is an issue. I have taken a look at the Roadmap for Teams & I do not see this feature anywhere.

          How many of us use Tagging to keep track of presence?

            • Separate Out of Office status from Presence (like Skype)

              Allow users to offer their presence of choice while keeping the Out of Office indicator persistent.
              Users may have special projects / exceptions / reasons that require them to temporarily login and publish their status, while otherwise not in the office.
              In Skype, a user can login and show available for a quick interval - without having to disable their Out of Office in order to extend that presence.
              This dual context would be useful in Teams.

              • show it user status is on mobile

                It would be great to see a status/presence of when a user is signed in only on their mobile. It helps other users to realize if the person they are contacting may have a delay in responding because they may not see the details on their mobile (perhaps they are driving).

                • 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…

                      Presently users of "Blocked", "Unlicensed" and even Shared Mailboxes all show up in the search / can try to converse with them. Can these be filtered out / a setting to remove them from the teams search?

                              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.

                                So, I am coming at this from a different angle then most. We are a former IBM Notes / Domino shop and we are migrating to Office 365. We currently use Lotus Sametime, which integrates remarkably well with Notes. Specifically in the folders and views of the user's mail. An example would be that when glancing at the Inbox, you can see right there what the status is of the person who sent you e-mail because the presence information for that user is displayed as an icon next to their name.

                                So what I am proposing is that Teams and…

                                      • Put Presence Text on Contact Popup

                                        Presence (text) doesn't appear anywhere except on mouseover for a split second before the contact card pops up.

                                        This needs to be addressed even without having other presence enhancements because until some of the other problems are fixed, most orgs using Teams will still rely on Teams PLUS their other corporate collaboration tool, and have to juggle what "yellow" means. Once better Presence/Status options are in place, this is a no-brainer.

                                        • Reset Status

                                          Where is the "Reset Status" option? When I go on DND, then I come back, how should I handle my status? This was straightforward in Skype for business with Reset Status.
