  1. Option to disable presence feature

    Allow me to set presence information to "Disabled" or similar, because it has too many inaccuracies to be useful and wrong information is worse than none.
    Further, colleagues interested in that information can get it from Skype for Business.

  2. Add an out of office feature for chats

    I don't know if this works automatically if you use Office 365 for your email and calendaring too, but we don't. Teams needs an out of office feature separate to Office 365 calendaring so people who try to message me while I'm on vacation get told as much.

  3. See team members and status on channel conversation page

    Similar to other chat apps (e.g. HipChat) show the members of a team on each channel message page on a sidebar (right side?)

  4. The ability to set availability per team differently from global

    Sure would be groovy to have a global availability option and then something more granular for individual teams. For example, appear busy to the masses, but for Team XYZ (my immediate crew) appear available.

  5. 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.

  6. remove from group

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

  7. Person Daily Schedule/Work hours on Hover Card

    A very useful feature for people would be the ability to hover over a person and see their schedule/work hours for the day. A lot of times, we want to chat with someone and status isn't enough. We would like to see if they are in the office, meeting or have one or more meetings coming up. Saves a ton of time.

  8. Show Status Time on hover

    When you open a chat with someone who is away and hover on over thier picture in the chat pane it will say something like "12m ago" for when they were last active. However, when you hover over the same profile picture in your chat list in the left pane, it just says "Away". Please add the time away on that hover as well.

    It would be nice if there was an option to show the away time without hovering over the user like Skype For business's contact list that shows "<name> - Away 22m ago"

  9. A home screen when the application opens or done with a conversation.

    The first screen that shows once you open the app would be a "home page". Currently, when you open the app, your last chat is on the screen. I don't want to keep chats open all the time if the conversations are done. This home page could be simple... " What would you like to do? ... with icons for Chat, video call, audio call, Conference, etc"

  10. Incorporate time into status, i.e. "away 10 minutes"

    Similar to Skype for Business, include time with the status. For instance, "Away 10 minutes".

  11. Status

    Teams shows in default as away after 3 minutes of idle time. It should be given access to the user to set his own time.

  12. Opt-out of "Notify when available"

    In the previous Skype for Business you had the option to "Tag for Status Updates" and Teams similarly implemented "Notify when available" in the spring of 2019. This has been a big ask for people, but at the same time, it's a feature which in my experience has been ripe for abuse at worst, and encouraging poor etiquette at best. If you've ever gotten 5 messages the moment you sat down and unlocked your PC in Skype for Business, you know what I'm talking about. This feature is also a privacy nightmare, and in environments where there are privacy concerns…

  13. Lag in status symbol

    There is a lag in the status symbol (green for present, red for occupied etc) compared to Skype. Also, I miss the search for contacts under Chat.

  14. Block a Team member just how we do in Skype

    Currently I do not see an option to block a contact in Teams. This is a feature available in Skype. Can you please incorporate this feature.

  15. Hide internal users’ icons from external users’ screen in Microsoft Teams

    *English follows Japanese
    ■Title(件名):
    Microsoft Teams において、外部のユーザーには、内部ユーザーのアイコンが表示されないようにしたい。

    Hide internal users’ icons from external users’ screen in Microsoft Teams


    ■Description(内容):
    Microsoft Teams では匿名ユーザーおよびゲストユーザーを招待可能であるかと存じます。その際、外部のユーザーには内部のユーザーのアイコンが閲覧不可 (デフォルトで設定されていたアイコンになるなど) となるよう機能の拡充を希望します。
    アイコンには本人の顔写真が利用されている場合が多く、個人情報の漏洩を懸念しております。

    In Microsoft Teams, we are allowed to invite anonymous users or guest users. Which means those external users can also see the internal users’ icons that might include internal users’ head shots or other personal information.

    To prevent the leakage of personal information, I hope the feature will be introduced to restrict external users from seeing internal users’ icons (displaying the default icon instead).

  16. Ability to Search for Microsoft Teams Contacts Using Main Search Bar

    Hello,

    Hope everyone is doing well.

    May we please suggest a Microsoft Teams feature to be able to synchronize Microsoft Outlook contacts with Microsoft Teams, Microsoft Teams contacts with Microsoft Outlook and to be able to search for both internal and external contacts (from address book), using the Microsoft Teams main search bar, located at the top center of the screen?

    Thank you very much.

  17. Tags = first name, last name

    Simply, when you tag people, it should be first name then last name. You call people by their first name right? Hey “Bill” can you help me out? Not - hey Gates, Bill can you help me out?

  18. Chat complications

    Skype is better. When I click on chat, all the contacts get extended. It makes it difficult to find the right person. Every time I need to Chat, I need to close every groups.
