Hi everyone! Thanks so much for this suggestion. I routed it to Design — they are pretty swamped on some other key features — but they plan to review this and find a solution. Once they do, I’ll let you know what it is!
We have created a solution for this request and it is currently undergoing testing.
Tweet me if you have any questions — @skprufo.
And happy holidays!
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
Hi everyone, it looks like this got put as “declined” — I actually have a best practice on my team to NEVER put anything as declined (you’ll see some older tickets have that, that was before my time, folks). So I’m sorry this got slipped through — its not a decline, for the very reason that Mark points out below.
Also special thanks to Andreas for seeing the activity on this closed item and bringing it to my attention.
And thank you to all of YOU for helping us makes Teams better!
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
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.

Skype For Business is a very useful tool. For me it is a glorified phone with vídeo, whiteboard and other features.
One of the main features for me is it that allows recording of the meeting (planned for teams as well).
But sometimes you just want to call someone (not in a team) in a enhanced meeting. S4B is great for that. You should integrate Teams and S4B.
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.

1 - Integrate the recording with Stream or Office Videos.
2 - Dont make it just a vídeo like in S4B - Look at what Adobe does with Adobe Connect. You can interact with the recording of the meeting and change the focus of your playback from vídeo to chat or attachments.
