Hi folks, its been a while since I updated this popular request, so wanted to give you an update.
We’re making some overall changes to the UI/UX so we’ll approve your clicking and flow for sure. As for making “Teams” and “Chat” the same tab, that is not likely to come with this first shipment of design changes. However, it is NOT off the table.
Thanks as always for your feedback, patience, and your help in making Teams better and better.
Would love to see this look more like slack. Being able to see where you have unread notifications for both Teams and Chat in the same pane is super useful. - To have to click between the two tabs is definitely something people complain about when comparing it to Slack.

Usage reporting is here! For full details on this new feature, read the official blog post: https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/Microsoft-Teams-Blog/New-usage-reports-for-Microsoft-Teams/ba-p/132614
I have not marked this as “completed” because we’ll continue to improve this feature and add more capabilities over time. If you have specific feedback to how this feature works or what you’d like to see improved, please add them to the thread here so that we can review and intake for our development/design process.
And as always, if you have any questions, just email me or tweet me at @skprufo.
More good news on this front! This week we shared our official roadmap for convergence: https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/Microsoft-Teams-Blog/Roadmap-for-Skype-for-Business-capabilities-coming-to-Microsoft/ba-p/119636
And here’s the PPT deck of the roadmap in case the GIFY makes you dizzy:
Tweet me at @skprufo if you have any questions and I’ll see what I can dig up for you.
Would love to see these two platforms completely merge and get rid of any separation through some sort of rebranding.
I have some great news to deliver!
Soon we will be sharing with you the ability of a unified presence! When you click upon your portrait in Teams you will be able to set your status and see it reflected SfB. It doesn’t matter which client is being used (SfB or Teams) they share presence!
Also, when a meeting starts feedback from Exchange will switch your presence to “busy” for your meeting.
Look for this early in the new calendar year! -Warren
Hi everyone, thanks for your comments in this thread, tweets, emails and calls. Please don’t hesitate to reach out to me with any questions at all; I’m here for YOU! I’ll continue to update this ticket as we make progress towards MSA.
Just in case you missed it, there is a FAQs in the Guest Access Help Article. Just click the “FAQs” tab here: https://aka.ms/GuestAccessHelp We’re updating them this week with new questions we’ve been getting, like “Is Guest Access available for Business Essentials licenses?” (The answer is yes.)
Lastly, the team is starting work on Federation so I’ve broken out Federation into its own UserVoice ticket. Please vote and subscribe to updates on its progress here: https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103/suggestions/20566714
I know this feature will make migrating to Teams much easier for so many of you
- and that’s why its an important feature. We’re having trouble implementing it because it requires access to information and functionality not yet exposed (create teams, channels, write messages, “imitating” real users, etc.). So, we first are working to make this functionality available-namely, providing a “Create Teams” API, which is difficult and complicated, and thus going to take much longer than we anticipated.
Thus, I am interested in crowdsourcing your creative brains for alternative solutions that could work temporarily while we work on this feature. If you have any ideas or hacks you’ve done to import data from another productivity tool, please share!
Thanks so much, especially for your support of Teams.
