  1. 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).

  2. Integrate status message and status

    When I set a status message, I also want to pick a status to go with it (available, busy, away, etc.). But that's not currently an option in the UI.

    "Clear status message after" should apply to this status. When the time is up, the status should go back to what it would have been.

  4. Make user presence controllable for internal users and external users

    It would be great if we can have Presence privacy mode feature like Skype for Business.
    Furthermore, internal users and external user are controlled at the same time in the Presence privacy mode.
    Therefore, a function to control the presence separately for those users would be appreciated.

  5. A new presence icon would be useful, to reflect the status "in a call", currently a mouseover is needed

    A new presence icon would be useful, to reflect the status "in a call", currently a mouseover is needed to see, if a user is just busy or in a call.

  6. 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

  9. Add Option to Display Status in Contacts List

    In the settings, add an option which causes Status text to display adjacent to or beneath (maybe both) the name and picture of a Contact in your Favorites.

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

  12. Have a read to badge for all teammates that have read a conversation. As well as show which user is typing.

    Being able to see if a user is typing or has seen a certain conversation in a channel would be really handy. When team members don't respond I'd like to know if they at least saw the conversation to that point to know if I need to reach out to them again or not.

  13. Org Chart Improvement

    High Priority:
    - Allow full expanded view of entire company
    - Expand multiple teams simultaneously
    - Better view of subordinates on any Manager's card (could be as simple as a number on the card)

    Nice to Have:
    - Allow users to fill in the Org Chart themselves in Teams directly (approval requests sent to IT Admin)
    - Allow users to upload different profile images for chart
    - Provide user profiles to learn more about each member of the org

       - Profile would include the employee's location, Teams/departments they are apart of, how long they've been at the company, skills, interests,

  14. Sort/Group contacts by presence

    When you have a list of contacts, it would be great to be able to group them by who is available, who is offline etc. At the moment it is hard to see who is available just by their different coloured icons.

  16. 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?

  17. Move cursor to text box upon clicking "Create a new contact group" or "Add a contact to this group"

    When I try to Create a new contact group, or add a contact to a contact group, i generally expect to click that option, then immediately type in the name. Instead, I then need to click inside the text box before typing. This is a bit annoying since I'm trying to add a bunch of contacts to various groups. I'm working in the Windows 10 application

  20. Microsoft Graph presence API

    currently you can only query the present status via the API interface.

    It would also be very important for providers who want to dock their tools to MS teams that the present status can also be set via the API interface.

    is there any information about when this will be possible via the API interface?
