This would greatly improve my cross on-network/off-network work flow.
Please ADD!!! This would be great for testing purposes and for taking quick notes/reminders within teams
please add this
I've encountered a "Just me" group conversation when saving a message. A "Just me" chat will appear to your chat list. It is similar to a group conversation where you are the only member. Can't rename the group chat though.
I would like to see this feature added. A few times i've wanted to test features of Teams without actually having to send a message to someone else. Today i wanted to test how to use quotes correctly, without accidentally hitting send, and sending it improperly formatted to another colleague, and it seems i can't. Please add this feature for testing features such as this.

Easy workaround (as at 12th August, 2020):
1. Click Calendar
2. Click Meet Now
3. Change Meeting name to something meaningful, like "Talk to Myself"
4. Click Join now
5. Click ... (More actions)
6. Choose Show conversation
7. Say Hello to yourself!
8. Hang up
9. Click Chat
10. Right click on your most recent chat and choose Pin
You now have a permanent chat with yourself always available at the top of your Pinned chats.

Agreed! So useful on slack when sending files between 2 computers! Can't do it on MS Teams :(

How is this not a feature yet?

They probably expect you to use OneNote, no thanks
(WORKAROUND) create a meeting (Photos and Stuff) to your self. Join the meeting and post a comment. End the meeting. Now pin the meeting chat and you should be able to post text and photos the the meeting chat and they will show up in the chat for the meeting on all your devices.
We used the meeting feature to complete a photo site survey. After the meeting everyone assigned to complete a survey of a site just posted the photos to the meeting chat from their phone. Worked like a charm. :-)
Seems like a simple function but we created "personal" private Teams for us to be able to do this
Wow, how is this not possible in Teams?!

This is basic functionality.
Pls add feature to chat with yourself. Sometime we need to send image from mobile phone to PC.
We only use Team so other software is litmited.
-- "Meet Now"
-- Talk to yourself :p
-- Click the chat icon and start the convo
