      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

      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 hate to be the bearer of bad news, but the current decision is to not allow the deleting of chat threads. However the ability to hide chats will soon be released.

              To access it you will simply click the “…” overflow menu from the left rail, on the chat you wish to mute. A fly-out will appear allowing you to either Favorite, Mute, Hide, or Leave the chat. Look for this by the end of the calendar year!

              Sincerely,
              -Warren

                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.

                Ray commented  · 

                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.

                  I know how much you all want this, and I’ve gotten a couple emails asking for an update.

                  As you likely already know, we’re heads down trying to get Guest Access out the door, so we are not actively working on a Linux client.

                  Also, we’ll be focusing on knocking out a significant number of user requests in the coming months, but the scope of a Linux client is too big for that time frame. I plan to lobby for this one once we get these other items, and Guest Access out the door.

                  I really appreciate your patience, and please rest assured I haven’t forgotten about this ask!

                  Thanks and hope you are all well.

                  Sincerely,
                  Suphatra

                  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.

                  Ray commented  · 

                  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.

                      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?

                        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:

                        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.

                        Ray commented  · 

                        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.

                          Thanks.

                            Hi everyone,

                            For this item, we’re still working on this and you have likely already started to see updated Planner and SharePoint integrations over the last two months (namely, the ability to “Bring your own SharePoint Online” and also Planner updates outlined here: https://medium.com/@mansoor.malik/a-few-updates-to-planner-integration-in-microsoft-teams-6e9683d1e085). There’s still more to come though!

                            Why I’m writing is because I need your help on a related, but different item. Another team, that specializes in our third party integrations, was interested in hearing what tools you like to use and would like to see in Teams.

                            Just enter your favorites here:
                            https://1drv.ms/xs/s!AryUNzh1ogZzif9Ba8ln1ps_y4Z_eA

                            That will help us tremendously! THANK YOU for your continued support of Teams.

                            Sincerely,
                            Suphatra

                            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.

                                  Firstly, I want to apologize for this item being in a “working on it” status for so very long.
                                  Secondly, I do have good news to share! Soon you will be able to record your meetings as requested and share them with others for future viewing. Once released the feature will be accessed by clicking the overflow “…” menu and choosing “Start Recording” from inside the meeting. Once the meeting has started recording a bar at the top of the meeting would announce the recording of the meeting to all participants. Upon ending the meeting, the recording would be added to the chat channel in which the meeting took place automatically! Look for this feature early in the new calendar year.

                                    I wanted to give you all an update on this.

                                    So, we have been reviewing this item and we’ve found that its a very difficult to do, given how our product is currently built.

                                    We are interested in hearing any workarounds you have done in order to meet this need (moving content around), as this may help us think of new ways to solve for this. Please add your thoughts in the reply chain.

                                    Thanks for your help, and the great ideas.

                                    Sincerely,
                                    Suphatra

                                        Hi everyone,

                                        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.

                                        Sincerely,
                                        Suphatra
