  2. More status options, custom status, and Out of Office

    MORE STATUS
    I like the status options in S4B, and so does my boss. It will be important to my boss before accepting the use of MS Teams widely to have a broader range of statuses. Missing statuses are:
    * In a meeting
    * In a conference call
    * In a call
    * Presenting
    * Be right back
    * Off Work

    Particularly of importance are "Be right back" and "off work". "Do not disturb" is probably sufficient for "in a meeting", "in a call" and "presenting". But, it sure is nice that S4B auto-detects those three statuses (for the most…

  4. Integrate Presence in Outlook contacts from Teams

    Whenever Team is running the presence should show on the Outlook contacts. When composing emails and adding users, it should show the presence of Team. It currently works only for skype for business.

    Thank you for your feedback – Presence for Teams users is supported on Outlook/Office 2013+ and the latest Teams desktop build. Skype for Business is no longer required to be installed on the machine.

  5. don't switch to "away", just because I'm using a different application (i'm still at work!)

    The availability status should indicate whether or not someone is available, which means they are available to chat.

    So it does not make sense to switch my status to away, just because I'm answering email or do something else on my computer.

    The fix for this is officially completed! For the specific issue of status changing to away in Teams when you are still active on the device, there was still a small % of users who saw the broken behavior, but as of today, all should be working correctly. Please note this was a backend fix, so no client update is needed.

    If you believe you are still having an issue, please feel free to capture logs by typing Ctrl + Shift + Alt + 1, and send the file from your downloads folder along with detailed repro steps to teamsml@microsoft.com.

    Thanks everyone – and enjoy!

  6. Teams Presence should be 'real-time'.

    Having presence delays of up to 4 minutes makes presence largely useless. Having to resort back to typing 'are you free now' after calls, because I can't tell if they are still in the meeting, or have started another meeting or call. Or trying to call somebody and get rejected and a message saying "I'm in a call"

    The presence of Teams users has switched to a subscription based model that brings near real time updates! Most of the time we expect presence updates to be reflected in a matter of a few seconds. It’s true for all scenarios like user’s calendar update, the Teams app status, or what the user decides to set manually. Enjoy!

  7. 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?

  8. Add "What's happening today?" Status

    Skype for Business has a "What's happening today?" custom status under their name which users can write custom messages such as "Teleworking" or "At Lunch". Teams should have this also.

  9. Allow us to modify the settings to stay "Available" when we are idle.

    In Skype you were able to stay "Available" for either set amount of time or even permanently when you were idle and working on other things. I have people asking me if I'm available now because after a few minutes my status goes to "Away" if I'm not actively moving around in my Teams Window.

    You can now set your status as Away. Just click your face in the lower left corner of the app and in the fly out menu, choose your status next to your photo.

    If you like this feature, please tweet us a shout out with the hashtag #MicrosoftTeams. You can also find me at @skprufo.

    Happy Friday!

  11. Show Status Indicator on Taskbar

    I keep forgetting to change my status back to active after being away. I don't always leave the Teams window open and there's no status indicator in the Windows Taskbar to catch my eye and remind me to change my status back to available. Skype has an indicator on the taskbar, so it's much easier to remember to change your status back.

  12. Restriction on participants in a chat group !!

    Hello Team, Recently we moved from CISCO Jabber to MS Teams and 1 restriction we found here is that in a chat group, the maximum number of participants is restricted to 50. For any organization (atleast here), we have more than 50 people who are needed to be in a chat group and not channels, as that is separate option. I would suggest to increase that number to a significant number as this is used at enterprise level where we can have more than 50 people working and required in the chat group.

    Also, if a chat is needed to…

  13. Need the ability to remove people from team chats.

    Team chats fill up with notifications when someone is Out of the Office, it is annoying. Having the ability to kick people out of a chat would be a nice feature to have.
