  1. Bring more inclusion & diversity to GIFs!

    Bring more inclusion & diversity to GIFs! I have a diverse team of both women and men and of various ethnic backgrounds. I struggle to find GIFs that represent us as a team, rather than a subset. For example, I looked for a cheerleader GIF to recognize a black female I wanted to recognize as being our team cheerleader, always positive and rooting for our success. I looked for a cheerleader GIF, and saw primarily GIFs that represented thin framed, white women. I resorted to using the one single cartoon-type GIF that showed in the results. Up your diversity, Microsoft!

  2. use consistent emoji behavior

    The (emoji) for keyboard instead of :emoji: is inconsistent with almost every other platform. This is not an improvement.

  3. Add a "default skin tone" setting to be applied when an emoji shortcut is typed

    Currently we cannot choose skin tone via emoji shortcuts. So it would be useful to set a "default skin tone" so that whenever I type an emoji shortcut, the default skin tone is applied to it.

  4. Emoticons

    The new emoticons on Teams are great. The absence of most recently used tab makes locating those frequently used time consuming.

    In adddition a few more options on the shortcut tab linked to messages will help.

  5. Prevent Office app policy affecting Teams

    Currently disabling the 'optional connected experiences in Office' will disable GIFs for users even if the global GIF setting is on in the Team's policy.

    This should be changed so that you can disable optionally connected experiences in Office without disabling GIFs

  7. Predictive GIFs - auto recommend a GIF response.

    Teams is great for my productivity, however I often spend large parts of my day looking for the perfect GIF to respond with, one that's both funny and relevant.
    Sometimes I know the GIF I want but need to find it, other times I have a gut feeling that a GIF response is what is needed but am unsure of what GIF would be best.
    What would greatly boost my productivity would be if Teams could automatically detect the content of the last message I received and present me with the perfect GIF (or a set of GIFs) for me…

  8. Why was 'thumbs up' emoji removed?

    Where has the 'thumbs up' icon gone? Why was it even removed? Tens of emojis I don't even know what they mean and this one gone! A middle vinger is a different meaning and the person who complained is only reflecting his/her (or whatever) own attitude (a not very positive one, if I may say). I also note it only has one vote, no election would be accepted on the basis of one vote.

    In the Netherlands a 'tumbs up' does not have a negative connotation and many of my colleagues use it.

  9. Make emoji shortcuts not sensitive to uppercase letters

    Since a few days back there's been a change in how to write shortcuts for emojis. Previously, I could e.g. write (Y) and get a thumbs up. I now have to be careful and write (y). Since I'm pressing the shift key to get the parenthesis, and need to do it again when finishing the shortcut, I'd recommend you change so that it's possible to write emoji shortcuts with both lower and uppercase letters.

  10. Change 'Super Mum' emoji name to 'Female Superhero' (or similar)

    The male superhero emoji is called 'Man Superhero' when you mouse over it, but the female equivalent is called 'Super Mum'... not sure how that got past QA, but it's not a good look.

  12. add a new icon option for meeting interactions

    Many difficult conversations are now happening in virtual settings and many are being avoided. I wonder if a new icon "elephant in the room" could be added to the hand raise, thumbs up, heart icons in MSTeams. Just a little elephant that people could click on when a topic of importance is not being discussed. As a manager, I would find it very useful to give space to team members to share the "unpopular" opinion or the avoided topic.

  13. Use Tenor rather than Giphy

    Tenor gives more of an option than Giphy and it gives a larger range of gifs than Giphy

  15. Add More Dog Emojis

    Hello,

    Currently, there are:
    - 2 Cat Emojis
    - 1 Dog Emoji

    I feel dogs are way cooler than cats. There is no reason why dogs should be second to cats.

    Reasons why dogs are cooler than cats:
    1. Dogs evolved with humans and we helped each other survive through the harshest of times in human history by protecting each other.
    2. Cats have laid around for thousands of years sleeping and continue to do so today.
    3. Dogs wag their tail when they are happy.
    4. Cats wag their tail when they are up to no good.
    5. Dogs…

  19. We need more emojis! Emoji's have become a way to integrate context into ideas expressed through text.

    We need updated emoji's to assist us in integrating context into our words through text. We've added a few, we need more! :D

  20. Add (back) Emoji shortcut with colon

    You should re-add the colon shortcuts for Emojis which was working fine before the latest May 2021 update. Before this update you could start typing ":rolleyes" which auto completed to the rolling eyes emoji. This is not working anymore.
