  1. 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

  2. Larger GIF Previews

    Once the GIFs button is selected, allow that window to either be resized, or make the GIF preview window along with the GIFs themselves bigger so we can actually read the text on the GIFs that are displayed.

  3. Add the ability to favorite a GIF for later reference

    I would like to have the ability to favorite/save a GIF as one would save a message, then access favorited GIFs via the chat toolbar button. See mockup for desired experience.

  4. Support native system emoji

    For consistency it would be nice to see the operating system's natively rendered emoji font. W10 Anniversary has great emoji that fit the Microsoft design style very well.

  6. translate links to gifs into gifs

  13. slash command: shrug

    Slack, MatterMost and hip chat either allow custom / commands, or support /shrug directly. Its a small, but kind of nice feature.

  14. Please remove your skype smiles

    Please remove your skype smiles - they are really awfull. Just make them look like original emoji (like in slack) or at least like the ones in touch keyboard in Windows 10. Please, it really hurts my eyes. Do a survey on that or something - I'm sure nobody likes skype set of smiles.

  15. 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…

  16. 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.

  17. 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.

  18. 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 :)

  19. Emoji Continuity

    Emoji Continuity

    Why tf are there emojis listed that can be typed with : " emoji name " : but aren't in the emoji list and why AREN'T the emojis in the emoji list capable of being inserted using : "emoji name" :

    who thought of that great idea?

  20. 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.
