In Skype we are able to set our location. Will this functionality come to Microsoft Teams?

Hey @Harold van de Kamp - This is a feature that we have on our backlog to deliver but at this point don't have any exact timeline to communicate.

Any news on location services in Teams? Will this include WhatsApp-alike ‘share live location’ in the Teams mobile app? Some of our users use this on their mobile phones during operations to track each other’s locations.

Any update on this feature in Teams or else when we can expect this feature in Teams

Any news on this topic? This is a must have for a team with multiple locations and regular homeoffice.

I just install SfB for a few people at an office. One of the first things they mentioned is how useful it is that they can see my location, based on whether I'm at Home or the Office (or on Laptop).=

 

This rollout has been sort of put on stop due to Microsoft's roadmap: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoftteams/faq-journey

 

So please could you get this feature implemented ASAP?

We are also keen to see this function come across from SfB.

any update to this?

Yes, please roll this out in Teams ASAP.

This would be a great New Year's resolution - please incorporate / develop 'set your location' into Microsoft Teams. 

Any update on this? This is one of the big hold-backs for us not migrating to Teams.

Currently in testing per the uservoice

https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public/suggestions/16926214-add-location-function

I would subscribe to it to be notified when it changes and a release date is confirmed.

Hope that helps

Best, Chris

Hi, any latest update on this, Thanks

Hi Chris,

 

What was delivered through that Uservoice feature request was not what we were asking for, at least not what this request was about. We wanted to have the "Set location" function available just like we currently having in Skype for Business. I need to be able to see where my service guys are and SfB currently has that. Teams has been touted as having all the SfB features, but that's not true, this one is missing and a number of others are as well.

 

When will this get looked at?

 

For others who want to vote for this, see the following feature request on Uservoice:

https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public/suggestions/33331429-my-location

@Andrew Spiziri Is there any update on this feature or is Microsoft skipping this? I have searched the roadmap and found nothing on this.

https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoft-365/roadmap?rtc=1&filters=&searchterms=location#owRoadmapM...

Hi, any update on this?
Since we have many people travelling from office to office worldwide, it'd be a very useful feature in our company.
Thanks

@mmontelatici Just voted for this - was really great functionality in SFB that seems a simple replication (might not be). Would have assumed this was covered in the Teams feature parity statement but is not on the public roadmap. I think the biggest issue here was articulating what the actual request was here. Make sure you share the right vote link as Microsoft has completed a similar request.

Will be looking forward to see this feature in Teams!

 

It's been almost two years since this post though, is there any update on its ETA? 

With the announcement of end of life for Skype you would think this functionality could be added. Can't be that difficult.

@JeremyC2015 , @Andrew Spiziri 

 

I agree, this function would be very useful for us.

 

Additionally, it would be good to be able to see ahead the planned locations of the team members. As consultants, we usually have a schedule where some days we are in the office with our customers and some days we work from our "home office". Since the team consists of many different consultants with different schedules, it would be useful to see when each team member plans to be at the "customers office", so as to be able to plan themselves their week. 

Probably "Shifts" could be used for this as a work around? But in that case it is too time consuming to enter each activity separately. Best would be if a list of locations could be populated and each member could check in the locations for respective days.

 

Am looking forward to updates regarding this.
