  1. Reorder :thumbsup: to appear first

    When I type :thu I'd like the :thumbsup: to appear first instead of :thumbsdown: I rarely :thumbsdown: so when this appears on top and I try to autofill by pressing tab after typing :thu I get worried that I might send the wrong emoji.

    So, make the :thumbsup: appear on top of the list instead of how it appears to be sorted alphabetically, now.

    BTW, Slack gets this correct.

  2. Show correct size of gif, less funny when it's cropped

    When a gif is brought in through the built in giphy app, it resizes and crops the gif, losing the comedic effect.

  3. Allow users to caption GIFs

    Slack has an option to caption your gif with your own text, but this isn't an option with Teams. This is critical in expressing exactly the sentiment desired.

  5. Emoji and Emote Conflicts

    The colon notation used by the Emoji One implementation conflicts with some of the Teams emotes. Specifically, no emoji that start with "s", "p", "o", "x", or "d" can be added from Emoji One as :S, :P, :O, :X, and :D all automatically convert to Teams emotes. This significantly reduces the number of emoji that can be used with the Emoji One implementation.

  8. 100% emoji for reactions

    In the chat feature I would love to be able to react with a 100% emoji. There are times when a thumbs up or a heart is not adequate.

  9. Allow banning of certain giphy tags per channel (for example #minions)

    I hate minions and I am not alone.

    There should be a possibility for team owners to ban certain tags from giphy, so that those gifs that match the criteria will not show up in search and cannot be posted.

  10. OK / got it / understood / acknowledged emoji

    I'd love an emoji to acknowledge that I've read and understood a message. If the original message is a statement and it's irrelevant if I like or dislike it, I just need to convey "got it".
    Many times a message just has a string of responses like "ok", "cool", "yup", "gotcha" which take up space without adding any meaning or content. A single emoji could be used in place of all these.

  12. Acknowledge or read "reaction" for a conversation

    Hi,
    I often need to acknowledge that I read a message on MS teams, but without having a reaction associated. I always try to find an associated reaction or go the the thumbs up as default, but using MS teams with professional messages I think it misses a neutral acknowledgement the message was read and understood.
    thank you!
    cheers
    Virginia

  14. How come none of the emoji people are female?

    None of the emoji people are females (dancing guy, bowing guy, and ninja). There are 3 emoji faces that are clearly female -- they are either applying make-up, making a kissing face, or saying "don't talk to me." Seriously? Seems like a big opportunity for improvement and more equitable, less stereotypical representation of males and females.

  15. Emoji notifications need to be consistent with the emoji in the client

    Some of the emoji appear differently in notifications than they do in the client.

    For example, the facepalm emoji appears in notifications as a woman facepalm emoji and then the female symbol. The sender does not assign a gender to the message, and could have inadvertently offended the recipient.

    This can change the perceived meaning of the emoji. For emoji to work both the sender and the recipient need to have the same understanding of what the emoji means. The emoji typed in the client should map to the exact same emoji in notification and across platforms.

  17. Add a vomit icon

    Since the days of MSN messenger a vomit / spew / puking icon has been one of my most expressive emoji's to express disgust. There isn't any equivalent expression in Microsoft Teams, which makes me sad. Skype has one of the best animated ones, and the rest of its emojis are very similar to teams.

  18. Make it easy to insert XKCD comic stickers

    A bit silly, but so are all the other emojis, gifs and stickers...

    It would be awesome to be able to quickly search XKCD for approriate comics, and insert them into messages. E.g., a search for "tables" should find the image from Exploits of a mom (https://xkcd.com/327/).

  20. Rename the female superhero emoji

    The male super hero emoji is called 'man superhero' but the female superhero emoji is called 'super mum.'

    Please can you rename the female superhero to something like 'female superhero?'
    I would like to be able to praise my female work colleagues without reference to parenthood. Females can be superheroes without having children and it would be great if the emoji names could reflect this.
    Thank you!
