  1. Cookie Emoji

    The emojis are fun and help enhance conversations. I was hoping you might add a cookie emoji. There's a birthday cake, cup, and a dancing turkey. Why not add a cookie?

  2. Emoji's Gifs and stamps

    Hello, It would be nice to have the option to access GIF's in an online repository. Seems like the GIF's and Word Art is limited. Also it would be nice to have the same options for Stamps. Stamps are very limited. I think it would also be nice to format our text via WordArt to change font style. Thank you!!

  3. Teams response emoticons

    When somebody posts a picture, meme, or gif, you get the small response emoticon box to respond with a smiley or thumbs up.
    WHY are there no thumbs DOWN? Not everything everybody posts in picture format is acceptable or a good idea.

    There needs to be a thumbs down emoticon as well as a light bulb with a red circle and slash though it for "bad idea"!

  5. Smiley emoji as a reaction to a Smiley emoji

    It is not possible to react to a smiley emoji with a smiley emoji. Could this be added. It makes sense.

  7. Emoticons to be gender neutral

    All the emoticons are with men. A company as big as Microsoft should promote equality.

  10. Add 'check', 'plus', 'minus' emoji reaction

    Add 'check', 'plus', 'minus' emoji reaction

    Check = I saw your message - quick way to react that it was seen, but maybe you do not have time to respond
    Plus = I also have this problem or I second this motion
    Minus = I do not have this problem or I cannot help

    I used to use these in Slack ALL THE TIME. The check was especially useful when I wanted to give someone acknowledgement that I HAD seen their message, so they understood and didn't need to follow up right away - because we had a policy that…

  13. Default Emoji options in teams chat response too polar / extreme.

    In most normal meetings both business and social. Expressing anger, surprise, sadness is not common or regularly appropriate. It would be beneficial to provide some more subtle default options such as: Interesting, Please explain, Confused, impatience (let's move on), annoyed. The opportunity to agree is already covered by like, but a dislike or disagree option would provide balance.

  14. Multicultural Emoji-Teams

    Options to change the shade/color of the emojis. Prefer shades of brown to represent people of color. This feature is available on phone apps and video sharing. This could be an option to add those to the Teams profile from other sources or within the application.

  15. Message Reaction Emotes/Emojis - Setting to have them removed automatically if the message is edited

    With the current reaction emotes to received messages, they remain on the message even if the sender edits the message after you have set the emote. 99% of the time this would be fine as they are likely to make a correction to the message.

    The issue with this is that the sender can edit the message to say something completely different from what was originally sent. This means that you could have given a 'thumbs up' to a message and then it is edited to say something that you do not approve of/is inappropriate and you would not be…

  17. Ability to pick the race of the reactions

    This is specifically requested for Microsoft Teams, but it could go for the whole Microsoft platform if it doesn't already exist.
    I think it would be nice if you could pick the race of the reactions and/or emojis. I'm not saying that the yellow color bugs me, it would just add some diversity and more customization options.
    This isn't totally necessary, so feel free to ignore this suggestion.

  19. Regresen los GIFS después de entregar algún trabajo.

    ME MOLESTO QUE LA NUEVA ACTUALIZACIÓN QUITARAN LAS FIGURITAS DESPUÉS DE ENTREGAR LOS TRABAJOS, DEBIDO A QUE ESOS GIFS ME PROPORCIONABAN SATISFACCIÓN Y ALEGRÍA, EXIGO QUE LOS REGRESEN Y SI PUEDEN QUE SEAN MÁS VARIADOS.
