    Thank you for your patience. We are thrilled to that replying to a chat message in the desktop client is now available as part of our Public Preview. It is expected to roll out to the public ring over the next several weeks.

    Please see feature details here: https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/microsoft-teams-public-preview/now-in-public-preview-quoted-reply-for-desktop-web-coming-soon/td-p/2761594

    For details on switching to the Microsoft Teams Public Preview version, please see : https://aka.ms/TeamsPublicPreview.

    We look forward to your preview feedback!

  2. Away Status

    Allow users to choose time elapsed until showing status as Away. Five minutes is certainly not enough time elapsed to show someone as Away. Users need more control of this status.

  3. Improved Chat Pop-Out

    Thanks for finally releasing the chat pop-out, but unfortunately it needs some work. Individual pop-out windows for every conversation is frustrating, confusing, and inefficient. There should be an ability to pop-out the entire chat component within Teams, or AT LEAST group together the pop-out chats into one Window. Also, if the pop-out chats are minimized and a new message comes in, when you click on the notification banner, it opens the chat in the main Teams window, not the pop-out chat that you have with that person. This defeats the whole purpose of pop-out chats. Please fix this.

  4. Urgente como bloquear un usuario externo o aliado para que ya no me pueda escribir por el chat principal de Teams

    Buenas tardes equipo Microsoft y compañeros, el presente es para consultar como se puede bloquear un usuario externo o aliado de Teams para que ya no tenga mas comunicación con nuestra organización por medio de chat sin bloquear todos los dominios, sino solo esa cuenta en especifico?

    Importante no es en un equipo de Teams, el proceso lo necesito es bloquear de la pestaña de chat principal.

    Un ejemplo es que si alguno de ustedes me busca en el chat principal de Teams y yo no quiero tener comunicación con usted que puedo realizar para bloquear a un usuario X…

  5. Quote/Reply

    Its funny that Quote/Reply feature is available for Android app but not available on Desktop client. Its such a useful and small feature to leave out.

  6. Implement "Close all button" for messages.

    Implement a button for closing at once all the messages appearing in the right bottom corner of the screen. This will allow to avoid closing tons of messages one by one.

  7. Read receipt for Channel messages

    I understood that read confirmations for chats are now active, but for channel messages this is not planned. This is a very desirable option. Leave it up to the users whether they want to activate it or not!

  8. Auto pop out chat just like the new feature for meetings.

    Allow new chats to auto pop out when you receive the message making more similar to skype for business. It is a lot easier to see the new messages that way.

  9. Pop Out Entire Chat List in New Window

    Similar to having Skype Chat. It would be helpful to have a window of your chats separate from your Teams window that you can pop out. This would enable chatting and not disrupting the work that you are doing. The singular pop outs for chat is great, but you are not easily able to change to a new chat without disturbing your workspace within Teams.

  10. Show status duration

    Skype showing the status duration in a chat was very useful ("away for X minutes").

    this allows you to know if your colleague is off for a coffee or in a 4 days vacation.

    This feature is very much missing when using teams.

  11. Away Status Time

    Allow the users to input how much time they'd want to pass before the status gets set to "Away". Users should be able to better control their status, 5 minutes shouldn't be considered as "Away".

  12. Stop cyber bullying

    Stop cyber bulling
    In addition, to the save chatting soon to be released I really would like to request the following:

    As a school we got around lots of students.

    Where sometimes cyber bullying is a real issue. In that case as a user X i would like to block user Y because Y is calling me all night long and calling me names through chat i don't like.

    How can I, X block user Y from calling and chatting me and delete their insulting words?

    This would help the students out so much!
    In the end we're doing it…

  13. Delete Chat Conversations

    I want to delete the whole chat conversation. Sometimes people message for one thing, and you never talk again. It gets too messy for me.

  16. Reply to Specific Message

    Teams should have an option to reply to specific messages in a personal chat windows and group chat window. currently it is not available which is highly recommendable.

  17. Delete Chat Message

    Teams do not have a 1:1 chat exit button.
    If you start chatting again after the Hide button, the chat history remains.

    I wish I had this function.

    1. You can delete your chat history.(Delete all of his chat details authority)
    2. Create 1:1 Chat Exit Button

    Please let me know when it can be updated.
    I think you'll make it.

  18. "Meta-Folder" hierarchy for chats and discussions

    Please provide possibility to create "Metadata-Folders" for Teams chats and discussions. That will allow us to place our Chats (1:1 and group chats and discussions) in those "Meta"-Folders to give our chat area more structure and to find those chats better.
    Make it possible to choose any combination of those:

    1. Place contact/group to Metafolder
    2. Place single chat/discussion piece to Metafolder

    Allow each element to exist in multiple Metafolders.

    Please take some inspiration from Delve´s Boards!! There in Delve, you can create Metafolders called Boards to place your pieces of info in. Info can exist in multiple boards. Those boards are…

  19. download chat conversation

    Download a Teams chat conversation at the end of a meeting. We chat on the chat, and the chat become our "notes" in the end. We do not chat in the notes features. doens't make sense. Especially during webinars where participants chats in the chat, we want to use the chat as notes to create our summaries.
