No new updates, we are still working away on this.
The unified presence is getting closer to release! It is still in development and planning to launch in Q1 of 2018! (The Office 365 Roadmap can be found at: https://products.office.com/en-us/business/office-365-roadmap?featureid=24191#abc )
I’ll keep you posted as more information is shared!
Yeah this is also a complete no go for us as well since I need this and a way to manage messages in groups, properly if you will. Can't actually move to this until those pieces get flushed out. These half measures are not cutting it.
To clarify I am going to see a user's presence without having to send them a message first right? I ask since this really needs to be added like yesterday because it is insanely frustrating not knowing what he status of someone is until you send them a message.
I would say that you should just use the presence in Skype for business and if for instance I am not using Skype for business at the moment there should be a fall back presence in Teams that tells other colleagues using S4B what my status is. The fact that you fragmented chat like this is a problem. Calls and screen sharing should just be integrated into Microsoft Teams which would give Microsoft a chance to improve S4B since its a huge bandwidth hog when doing screen shares or the like now. Stop giving me multiple apps that do half or 3/4 of what I need to do and just give me one cohesive experience and make a worthwhile Linux client not some Electron hack job.
I couldn't agree with this more right now. If you chat with a lot of people one on one the idea of only have favorites is short sighted and terrible. I need to be able to have custom groups of people I chat with a lot and a way to manage users besides have to search for them in the search box or going through recent chats which is also terrible.
This is messaging functionality that should be worked on asap since right now its a mess.

I’ll keep you posted as I get more information to share. No ETA is available for when a decision will happen.
This would be amazing and needs to happen yesterday. I want one app to manage this whole MS ecosystem with mail, calendar, meetings, chat, group chat and video, and reminders that actually fire for all of those pieces. There is no reason I should need multiple apps for this that would be pointless. Just give us the one stop shop to MS town already.
Definitely needs integrated into Teams. Teams looks only partially finished with only a calendar tab since most people would be looking for mail as well. Once you actually build your native linux client for teams this would also provide a great way for those using linux to access office 365 and the like mail. You would kill multiple birds with one stone to turn a phrase.
No new updates at this time. This item is still on the backlog.
Though for those that don’t know, you can use Google Chrome to run the web version of Teams on Linux. It is a workaround to a degree…
I will continue to voice your feedback to the team and provide updates as possible.
Seriously MS Teams folks why hasn't this been created yet........There is absolutely not reason this couldn't be a thing since its freaking 2017. We have multi os teams here and this simply won't take hold at our company until this is completed.
Any idea when this will come out of review and go into planning?
This needs to happen asap since this simply will not work for any of our dev's workflow at all. How can we manage teams if you don't support and entire platform? Absolutely essential this is a native client as well. Seriously once you have it just use the open build service from opensuse to provide high quality and rigorous testing of the app across more than 26 distros.
Good news, this feature request is being actively worked upon.
No timeline is available yet, but I’ll keep an eye on this item and post more updates as they come in.
Thank you all for the feedback!
Yes this 100% needs to be a thing and would be insanely useful and helpful when managing important and less important notifications.
This item is still being reviewed by the feature. No new updates to share at this time.
It's unfortunate the last update from the MS Teams folks was over a month ago now on this. Any idea when this might land?
No new updates. We continue to work towards the S4B convergence.
Official roadmap for the convergence: https://skypeandteams.blob.core.windows.net/artefacts/Skype%20for%20Business%20to%20Teams%20Capabilities%20Roadmap.pdf
I completely agree and if this doesn't happen your just going to breed more confusion and seriously damage the credibility and reliability of this app and users are just going to move on to other solutions like Slack and simply not care. Get this together sooner rather than later otherwise its going to fall on its face.
Basically if someone is speaking to me from Skype for Business and tries to invite me to a group chat in Skype for Business that should work without issue. I shouldn't have to close MS Teams and reopen Skype for Business just for this use case.
It looks like some people in the thread below have figured it out — we actually have this. You can start a chat both ways; the system will automatically recognize if this person is on Skype for Business or on Teams.
Thanks and let me know if you have any questions.
Let's clarify this you have this inconsistently. I can not reliably tell the status of a person in MS teams, if they are away, available, in a meeting (even just the color doesn't show the little circle just stays gray and the status says unknown until I send them a message and that sucks)
In addition we still can't accept group messages from S4B and it just automatically declines the invite and pops up a message, sometimes, in MS Teams, that I can't do anything with which also sucks.
TLDR fix the group messaging and the like between S4B and give me status' on users I may want to chat with before I interrupt them in a meeting otherwise that is useless. Also making sure my messages from MS Teams actually make it to S4B would also be delightful as well since many people at this point are not getting my messages and its affecting business.
I literally just ran into an issue where I have both Teams open and S4B open and I initiated a chat from Teams with a colleague on S4B and earlier this worked fine. My colleague sent me chat in S4B while I had both S4B and Team open, as I did before, and the message only showed up in S4B and I have nothing in Teams. Seems like a fairly huge bug to me. Please note this was a one to one chat.
We are actively working on this feature request.
We recently announced a Planner Web Part which covers the SharePoint request. Details can be found at: https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/SharePoint-Blog/Use-SharePoint-web-parts-to-showcase-data-from-inside-and/ba-p/161584
There have also been some Outlook Calendar integration which you can read about at: https://blogs.office.com/en-us/2018/02/05/conquer-time-with-new-features-in-microsoft-planner/
More updates to come, so stay tuned!
We really need to be able to have MS Teams provide us reminders for calendar appointments that would be listed in the MS Teams calendar basically the same thing as Outlook calendar. If I don't get reminders for meetings the meetings bit is nearly useless to me since that means I still need Outlook open to get these notifications which is double work and pointless.
Yes, this is very much not intuitive.

No big update. However, the ask about speech to text meeting notes needs to be a separate request and therefore I have created a new suggestion for it. You can go here and up vote it! https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103/suggestions/33534778
As for recording of video meetings, this is still coming along nicely.
Recording of meetings is on the roadmap for the Q2 2018 calendar year.
This item is still on the backlog, but I’ll have a survey soon to gather additional feedback from you all.
This feature request is actively being worked upon.
As more details become available I will be sure to post them here!
Still under review, no new details to share.
This request is being worked upon.
Change Prompt: the prompt will be updated to imply both “join” or “create” – this should be coming soon.
Preview Team is still in the works. No details at this time.
Team Discoverability is still being worked upon though again, no details at this time. The suggestion covering this is found at https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103/suggestions/19470934
I’ll work to get some more details as they become available, so stay tuned.
And thank you again for all the feedback and suggestions.
I apologize, I need to post a correction.
This update has only made it to the inner rings of our testing. (Ring 2 users are now experiencing the support of Windows OS (desktop) quiet hours.) It hasn’t made it out to the public ring yet.
I sincerely apologize for posting an incorrect update. But it is getting pretty far along.
OS X (Mac) notification quiet hours are still in the works.
I’ll keep you posted as more information becomes available.
Thank you all for the feedback.
