      • Change status to away when computer is locked

        When I lock my computer, automatically change my status to away. I don't expect the web version to be able to do this but the client should be able to.

            • External users have difficulty joining the team.

              I've invited external users several times, (external users are allowed for Teams in the Office365 settings). The Teams app allows me to add users, sends them an email with a link, but when they click the link, launching their Teams app, an error pops up saying that they need to be invited to Teams. Although... they just clicked on an invitation link.

              • Display user info on hovering over profile picture

                Display user info on hovering over profile picture at the top of Teams like it is done when hovering in chat over profile picture. Then you can finally see the user login name of the currently logged in user with hovering over the profile picture. Should be easy to implement.

                  I should be able to remove/kick someone from a group I created. I'm only able to do that in teams.

                  • Teams status issues

                    Changing status is very slow. Sometimes it takes 30 seconds or more for our statuses to change. Also many times other users statuses are a white circle even though I am actively chatting with them.

                        • Remove "status unknown" or add time like with away or offline

                          Sometimes status is shown as status unknown instead of offline, not sure exactly what it means but judging from what I've seen it could just mean the user is offline.

                          Ideally I think this status should be removed since either Teams has contact with the user and can determine the status or contact can not be established and then the user is offline (a status which you have).

                          If it for some reason can not be removed then I think you should at least change it so that you can see time since last activity. The same way as with…

                          • Availability Schedule

                            It would be great to setup our availability in teams (like they have in slack). Like we could setup our working hours so we don't receive notification outiste working hours. Right now if I do not want to receive notifications (on my phone) I need to manually set me in away.

                            • We would like the chat list to change by availability.

                              We would like to see the chat order change as users become available. The most recent conversation with an available person should be at the top of the list. Unavailable users should be at bottom.

                                • Romania isn`t on billing list.

                                  As you can see, acording to https://www.xbox.com/en-US/live/countries , Romania isn`t on the billing list. It is such a shame for that of a big company to don`t have a european country. I can`t buy anything. I hope it willl be added very very soon because it is a very big problem for people in Romania.

                                      • Presence across Tenants

                                        Have presence across tenants. I am working with some users in one Teams site in one tenant but when I return to mine they cannot see my presence. Presence should be across tenant or configurable to be like that. Thanks

                                        • Dismiss other user's out of office status in a team

                                          When I go to a team channel or a group message and one or more participants is out of office, I am notified every time. Even if I acknowledge the message, it just comes back. I realize that a single person is not going to receive the message, but it's still relevant to the other 30 people on the team. If I dismiss someone's OOO message in Teams, it should stick, I shouldn't have to dismiss it every time I try to send a message to the rest of the group.
