  1. Expand emojis to reflect the diversity of ethnicity, gender, sexuality and disability of your user base

    Emoji set is limited and almost exclusively white and male. This doesn't reflect the make up of most modern workplaces and certainly doesn't reflect the make up of your global user base.

  2. Facepalm like reaction needed

    A new set of reactions to substitute like functionality is just great. However what we need is a facepalm emoji reaction to convey the true reactions to many posts - let's make it happen!

  3. Custom Emojis for Messages and Reactions

    Slack has the ability to upload custom emojis. Teams should allow users to upload their own images and gifs that can be used not only in channel posts and chats, but also as an emoji reaction to a post or chat.

  4. Allow banning of certain giphy tags per channel (for example #minions)

    I hate minions and I am not alone.

    There should be a possibility for team owners to ban certain tags from giphy, so that those gifs that match the criteria will not show up in search and cannot be posted.

  5. better emojis!

    SImilar to slack, please have a large range of emojis. Its frustrating to have limited emojis as emojis can save time in how we respond to people's comments. Thank you very much!

  7. Emoji with black complexion

    Your emojis are only white skin. There's also black people using Team. Can you please add more emojis with black complexion?

  8. Update emojis

    Update and expand those emojis. The emojis currently listed in Teams are from Skype and limited at that. Way too old. Please update.

  9. Since Covid-19 and we are all stuck with little human contact can't you make Teams more colorful and fun? More Emojis? More like Slack?

  12. Add more emojis! Not nearly enough

    Please add more emojis, not as nearly to enough. Also add more emojis with which one can react to a message. This saves time a lot. Similar to Slack add as much as you can. I am sure that everybody will appreciate this.

    P.S you can also add functionality to make custom emojis.

  13. Ability to disable chat reactions

    Please provided a setting that would allow a user to disable the emoji reactions on the chat feature. This gets in the way when trying to copy and paste, or simply hovering a cursor over a message.

  15. Add support for gfycat (giphy alternative)

    Please add support for gfycat(.com), doesn't have to be as integrated as giphy (though that would be preferable).

    Right now if I paste something from gfycat (right click > copy image) it works while writing the message and a few seconds after posting it. Then it seems the image gets replaced by a "blob" from Microsofts servers that is not animated.

    I think many people would appreciate this even more so now that giphy was bought by Facebook.

  16. How about a die (dice) roller?

    Not sure this should go under GIFs or bots, but how about adding a dice roller? You know, where you enter "D20" and get back a random number between 1-20 or "2D6" and get two numbers from 1-6 each.

  17. Add metal horns or rock emojis

    Skype for Business has an awesome (rock) emoji present, yet Teams does not. As a life long metalhead, I would like to able to express my metalness to my colleagues!

    I suggest adding either a 🤘 emoji or adding the SfB animated (rock) emoji.

  18. An ability to change the color of the emojis

    I'm a brown person, and I'd like to be able to choose a brown hand for the thumbs up sign and some of the face emoji's. The globe is a colorful place
