  1. Need to be able to remove people from a group chat.

    I'm assuming this was already requested but searching on Uservoice doesn't work all that well so I didn't find anything.

    There needs to be a way to remove people from a group chat (not from a team chat). If someone gets added by mistake, there is no way to remove them from a chat. We have to request people manually Leave the chat.

    In Skype, chats are considered meetings and I can just right-click someone to remove them. That functionality needs to be added to Teams as well.

  2. Allow More People to be in a Private Chat

    Currently the maximum number of people who can join a group chat is 50, it would be really useful to see this expanded! We have multiple use-cases within our organisation for larger group chats, particularly as people try to move away from Lync and Skype based chats.

  4. Chat with only 20 people?

    The chat tab gives you the ability to only chat in the same time with 20 people and no more. Is it possible to get this changed and have more then 20 people in this chat? I know we can chat in the group team where more then 20 can join but it is not the same. Chat experience is different t on chat then I'm the group and some people like it this way. If 20 can join, why not more?

  5. Screen sharing within chat

    I need to be able to share my screen with a coworker at a different location WITHIN a chat. I also need my coworker to be able take over my computer within chat. Right now it seems you can only share your screen during a meeting.

    I am happy to announce that build 33658 has been released to the public, so you should be receiving the update if you don’t have it already. Thank to everyone who confirmed the fix worked for them, and thanks again for your patience as we worked thru this tricky issue.

  10. Group Chat Member (20 people plus)

    We have many people on my team and my concern is that there is a limited number of people that you can include in a group chat which opted us to use another app. I would like to maximize the team collaboration in MST that is why messaging is very important to us.

  11. Better visual delineation between `Reply` and `Start a new conversation`

    It's very confusing to new users that there is a difference between replying to an existing conversation and starting a new one within a channel. This is a visual thing as much as anything else. The 'reply' buttons are not naturally attractive if you just want to start typing a message. There should be a logical gap between the bottom of a conversation and 'start a new conversation'. 'Start a new conversation' needs to be separated visually, as if it's a second order command rather than a first order...reply.

  12. Let me and the team owner delete messages.

    One user asked:
    If I wrote the message, I should be allowed to delete it, regardless of a time limit (right now we're only allowed 24 hours to delete our own message). There should be no limit.

    Another user asked:
    The team owner should have moderating access to their own teams. In its most basic form, team owners should be able to delete messages posted by other members.

    It is a basic functionality that other popular services like Slack allow. It also helps keep a team's conversation clean.

    For example, a new member of our team is still getting familiar…

    We have removed the 24-hour limit on all messages. We have also added the ability for owners to delete messages. HOWEVER, on the latter function, this is not on by default — the IT admin needs to enable the feature to allow team owners to delete any message.

    Let me know if you have any questions!

  13. Abilty to disable chat

    We would like the ability to prevent users from taking part in private/group chats amongst themselves but still allow them to take part in the Conversations in a Team.

    We are currently using Teams for our staff, but with the news that Teams is to replace Microsoft Classrooms for Education customers we will eventually need to allow for Students as well.

    However we would not want Students to have the ability to be sending un-monitored IM's to each during lessons via Chat so the ability to turn this off and restrict messaging to the shared conversation in Teams would be…

    Hi everyone, this feature has shipped! Tenant admins can now disable private chat for Microsoft Teams. You’ll start to see it in your Teams immediately.

    Here’s how it works:

    1. Navigate to the admin portal
    2. Click on “Settings”
    3. Then click on “Services & add-ins”
    4. Then click on “Microsoft Teams”
    5. Here you’ll find your Tenant-wide settings. Click on “Messaging”.
    6. Select the license type you want to configure.
    7. Toggle off “Allow users to chat privately”. This will remove private chat from students. Please allow up to 24 hours for a change in this setting to complete. You can use it selectively enable and disable private chat from any groups of users so long they share a license type.

    Thank you for all your help and feedback, please let me know if you have any issues regarding this feature.

    Sincerely,
    Suphatra

  14. Make it possible to hide unnecessary chats

    Now the list shows chats that are no longer needed - with employees fired, etc. The ability to hide them would greatly reduce the list of chats

    Looks like this one was missed, but it is completed and the ability to hide chats exists.

    Thank you for the feedback and suggestions. :)

  15. Paste as plain text option

    When copying text and pasting into the chat box we need to be able to paste as plain text. It makes the test unreadable often when the source formatting is carried over and the text color and background color are the same, or coming from a webpage it often carries table formatting etc. Workaround right now requires pasting into a plain text editor like notepad and then copying again before pasting in Teams.

  17. Mark message as unread

    Sometimes you might be busy when you read a new message and would like to come back to it at a later time. I'd like the option to mark a message as unread so I know to come back to it after a meeting for example.

    This is done!

    Just hover over the upper left side of any message and click the ellipses. On the fly out window, choose “Mark as Unread.”

    Thanks,

  18. Missed Skype For Business Messages Disappear

    Currently if I am in Teams and someone from Skype sends me a message while I am away or do not click the notification immediately the message becomes missed completely. Skype For Business will open a window if you have it open but if you do not once the notification window closes the message is lost.

    It would be nice to have the message open in Teams, bold like a pending message is so that no messages are lost.

  19. More than 20 participants in a chat

    We would like to use group chats for conversations that are not team/work related. However, the 20 participant limit keeps us from using the feature to it's full extent. Please increase the participant limit for group chats from 20 to 100.

    You now can follow a channel to get notifications for that channel or Team. Just click the little ellipses next to the channel name and select “Follow Channel.”

    Enjoy!
