  2. Status

    As soon as I start Teams I put my status to not available. Please make it possible to define that as my default status so that I don't need to put it to not available every day and every time I re-start the system. Thanks in advance.

  4. external chat with more functionality

    Chat with external users needs to have added functionality in order to replace Skype for Business. Images, formatting and emojis are a bare minimum of what is to be expected in a modern application.

  5. 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.

  6. 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?

  8. 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).

  11. Auto-reply based on status similar to, or integrated with, outlook

    Please add the ability to manage an auto reply based on status to alert others that you are away or set to do not disturb.

    similar things for comparison:
    -In outlook you can control auto replies
    -in outlook if you are emailing someone with an auto-reply enabled, it alerts you that you are sending a message to someone who is away

  13. 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.

  14. Chat

    All the chats that I had added to my Favorites disappeared after I came back from vacation. Presumably, this is because chats are auto-hidden after an expiration time of some kind? I was able to find the chats by searching for the people.

    My suggestion is to persist the chats indefinitely in the Favorites list by default. And let the user decide whether they want to Hide the chat or remove it from the Favorites list.

    The options displayed at the bottom left of Microsoft Teams screen, “Get app”,”Apps” and “Help”, should be hidden from users. Especially the “Apps” we need to hide it from users’ screens since those apps are the store apps.

  17. Ability not to show Disabled/Blocked users

    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?

  19. Unify contacts from calls and chat tabs

    There are contacts in the Calls tab (A-Z come from Outlook contacts) and Contacts in Chat tab (from Skype). It would be better to unify those - why do we need both? Also favorites and Speed dial contacts could be the same?
