    I'm happy to use Teams for when I'm interacting with a team. It lets me share files, leave persistent comments, make a wiki and so on.

    I use Skype for Business for those one-on-one chat sessions, for private conversations, for things that are not shared with a team. (And for seeing presence, which works very well - far easier than Teams).

    Therefore, I need Skype for Business *and* I need Teams. They do different things. They serve completely different needs.

    Please keep these two services separate. Some will want Teams only. Some will want Skype for Business only. Some may even want both, but kept separate. Squashing Skype for Business into Teams is making a horrible mess.

    This is *the* major problem when attempting to migrate from Skype for Business to Teams.

    S4B has a great UI. It's 'clean' and simple. I open S4B and I see my favourite contacts right there. I see their presence at a glance (and - my goodness! - that presence information is actually correct).

    When I give a use Teams, it doesn't automatically open in the Chat tab. If the user opens the Chat tab, they then have one more click to open the 'contacts' list. And, by the way, the presence status shown for those contacts is not accurate (but open S4B, and it is accurate!)

    Teams should allow the user to cause the app to open in the Chat / Contacts page. Just like S4B which we all know and love.

    Alternatively . . . just take chat out of Teams, and let us keep S4B!
