  1. Uploaded GIF's in chat have poor quality

    When uploading a gif into a conversation, the preview of the gif that plays is of very poor quality, and often times trims off the last second or two of a animated gif.
    When I'm viewing a gif in the conversation, I expect it to preview at the original quality, and at least not trim off seconds from the animated gif.

  2. Disable giphy, stickers, and memes per channel

    There should be settings per channel which would allow / disallow use of Giphy, stickers and memes per channel (not just per team).

    This would allow a channel for general silliness and another where people are not allowed to post stickers/memes/giphy.

    We are seeing that a project can quickly be derailed when a few people start posting memes in the middle of serious discussions to express themselves. While I agree that there's a time and place and those people should be more disciplined, it would be better to restrict those things per channel, so a serious conversation in a particular…

  3. Make the emoji's that are on their own lines smaller

    They take up so much real estate if you just send an emoji in a message by itself.

  6. Add ability to react to posts (with multiple emojis)

    We need the ability to react to posts with emojis. The full suite of emojis should be available. Any person should be able to react with multiple emjois per post.

  7. 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.

  9. 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 :)

  10. translate links to gifs into gifs

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

  11. Ability to hide or minimize gifs (at user level)

    I like a lot about Teams. However, one of the nice features of your main competitor is that on things like GIFs you can minimize them. GIFs are fun, but after the initial fun they are annoying to keep seeing auto playing in the feed. So a way to minimize them in the feed would be great.

  12. Add Giphy Search Operators

    For example putting things in quotes should search for an exact match.

    Keywords should default to AND search rather than OR. If I'm searching for "wwe mankind" I want gif results that include both tags, rather than just one of them.

  13. 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.

  14. Don't use Comic Sans on the stickers.. Especially the Design ones.

    It's basically a way to guarantee it won't get used by designers.

  15. 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

  16. Add new Giphy content rating

    Please add a new Giphy content rating between "Moderate" (PG) and "Allow all content". At least PG-13, but possibly more fine-grain across-the-board (like all primary "movie ratings").

  18. 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.

    Add flags emoji collection.
    Add “canyoutalk” emoji from Skype.
    Add medical-themed emojis for those who work in the medical field.

  20. Add option to make emoticons smaller or be turned off

    Would like the ability to turn off all emoticons. Every chat application I've ever used (Skype, Lync, Slack, Hipchat) allow this option. Or/and make the emoticons smaller.

    It would also be nice to have the option to minimize an emoji or resize an emoji within the chat feed once a user has posted it. Currently ‘edit’ or ‘delete’ is available per message, possiblly if ‘minimize’ or ‘collapse’ option would make this possible? This would enable the viewer of the feed to create their own visual experience/not have to look at emoji if they don’t want to.

    partially done  ·  Warren responded

    The ability to turn off emojis is still being worked upon.

    Also, there is work to create a compact mode which will also help reduce white space… which in turn will impact some of the complaints are far as wasted space from the emojis as well, that have been voiced in the comments.

    Stay tuned for more details.
