  1. Use well-known names (short codes) for emoticons/emoji

    Amongst others, Github and Slack use a common naming schema for emoji. Teams has a different naming schema for at least part of the emoji set, for example:
    ":ok_hand:" - not present in Teams
    ":disappointed:" - can't even be typed, as soon as ":d" is typed it becomes a Skype emoticon

    Please use a common naming convention that a lot of people have already gotten used to.

  3. We want the Muppets from "real skype"!!!

    The muppets are a great team building/ice breaking feature that can add life to a dull conversation. We want the Muppets!

  7. Gif window preview size is too small

    The preview of GIf's is much too small to be useful, with no way to resize.

    This is crucial to brilliant responses in animated form.

  9. Add more emojis in line (instead of just "like").

    Instead of reply after reply after reply w emoji. Add more than just "like" on a posted response.

  10. spoiler font

    Please create a spoiler font that sets the text to the same color as the background.

    This is frequently useful for humor, as well as "try to solve it yourself" tech support / questions / trivia

  11. emoji menu

    The Emoji Menu shortcut (ALT+Q according to docs) doesn't work for replies. Once you select an emoji from the menu, it sends the emoji to the "Start a new conversation" input bar instead of the Reply input bar. This happens even if you click into the reply bar first and then click ALT+Q. Since Emoji's are mostly used in replies, this behavior makes little sense.

  12. Add keyboard shortcut for gifs

    Easily like half the reason I even use Slack is how easy it is to insert a gif. Having to physically click on that stupidly small gif button in Teams and then having to wait forever as all the gif options load up really slows the conversation down. Add a keyboard shortcut PLEASE

  13. Curated workplace safe GIF's

    The current GIF's come from giphy.com and even though our settings are for the PG list, some NSFW gif's do sneak through. We have found them using a wrong spelling or 'creative' words (example: pron or bitchs).

    To prevent HR issues, I would love to see a human curated gallery of GIF's to prevent GIF's sneaking through thanks to people screwing with hash tags.

  15. giphy preview before auto-post

    A quick preview of a gif from giphy before auto-posting on click would be handy as the preview is tiny and pixelated and may not accurately reflect what you're trying to say. A preview lets you confirm before including in your post.

  16. Creepy emojis need work

    The turkey emoji is kind a freaky with the sweat rolling down it. The monkey dancing frankly looks like he is making a rude gesture.

    Missing the (island) emoji from Skype, which was nice.

  17. Allow for randomized giphy selection using a shortcut.

    We're supposed to be working... so selecting the perfect Giphy is a bit of a distraction. Allowing for a randomized Giphy selection (based on keyword) by using a shortcut is something your competition offers, and is missed dearly by our team. Part of the fun was/is being surprised by what pops up.

  18. translate links to gifs into gifs

    Please add functionality to translate direct links to gifs into the gif itself. Slack has this.

  19. thumbs up emoji

    Please make your thumbsup emoji (yes) not the weird flesh color and stop it from moving. I use the thumbsup all the time in conversation and I'm not sure why but I hate this emoji.

    Great tool though you guys are doing great.

  20. Cannot view emoji's

    Hi Guys, Love MS Teams so far - however myself and few colleagues are stuggling to be able to view emoji's in the web app or locally downloaded version.

    We just see a blank text space.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated :)
