Allow sending messages to yourself
The Slack slackbot allows you send messages to yourself.
another workaround to bypass this gap is to create a Teams meeting and invite only yourselves or your private email. Join meeting from all devices, then you could pin the meeting to favorites and you could exchange messages via this meeting
It is very very useful. Please add this feature.
Any comment from the Microsoft team on this?
I like this for adding notes to yourself
This would be incredibly useful - especially when in transit

I use this feature all the time on slack to send links, attachments, note to self, etc from my mobile to be accessed on my desktop.
I love that future .. it helps me to send a to myself. for reference.
Need this feature badly to try out - esp to try out the emojis, stickers and giphy before sending them.
Also i would like to see the reminder option similar to slack.
Microsoft please catch up with slack soon or you are ....
I really miss this feature. It was a super fast way to send myself a note about something, because I tend to have access to teams/slack from all my devices.

We've recently moved from Slack to Teams. I really miss this feature. It was a super fast way to send myself a note about something, because I tend to have access to teams/slack from all my devices.

Talking to yourself is a natural thing in real life, why not in Teams? I send text to myself to remind me of things, I send emails to myself to add to my todo list... Teams would be a perfect place to talk to myself for other items.
Hipchat can do this
Yes please make this available. In Slack, I regularly use this featureto:
- Check how a message looks before I send to bigger group
- A place to save some quick notes/reminders for myself
In Telegram, this feature is aptly named "Saved Messages"

I agree, please add this fundamental feature!
WORKAROUND 1 (repeated from below):
Create a new team, make it private, and don't add any other members to it. Send yourself messages in there.
WORKAROUND 2 (if you do not have permissions to create new teams):
Use the Wiki extension/app and create a personal wiki page for snippets that you want to share between computers etc.
Hi MS Team!
I wonder the approach you have, doing [clones of] something. The Slack team is promoting the ability to send a message to yourself as a one of the cool feature of their messenger and it's really helpful - you can find many "thanks" for Slack team for that feature.
It's definitely was a requirement for Teams application to _exclude_ yourself from the list of message recipients and it's definitely additional efforts to implement it. So, product owner / project manager / analyst (all of them) spent time to decide to create and describe this requirement; developer(s) implemented; QA team run tests and, sure, it had been documented. All of that is just to, intentionally, kill the useful feature spending additional money for that.
I assume that implementing the messaging to yourself will require efforts to avoid some specific side effects at the platform/app, but is it so complex and more benefitable to kill the feature, especially when you have a brilliant example to follow by?
Can you, guys, explain it?
Was exactly looking for that today.
