Thanks for the suggestion! We have been hearing this request from more users, so it has been raised with the feature teams. I’ll keep you updated as I learn more.
Of the two items in this request, #1 is complete and available.
- is still in the works.
This is part of the convergence roadmap – https://skypeandteams.blob.core.windows.net/artefacts/Skype%20for%20Business%20to%20Teams%20Capabilities%20Roadmap.pdf
As more details become available for item #2 I will share them with you.
