How can we make Microsoft Teams better?

Multiple Group chats

Cannot have more than 1 group chat with same members. I dont want to create a "Team" for things that do NOT need all the Team bells and whistles (Sharepoint, Cal, etc). But we would like to have more than 1 group chat with the same members but with different chat names. ie: Chat Name: Oranges Chatters: Joe, Jane & John. Chat Name: Apples Chatters: Joe, Jane & John.. Cant do it currently. It will only allow to change the chat name

    MilenaN, this is not supported. If you start a new chat with same participants, it will immediately recognize it's an already existing named group chat.

    What we want is for each named chat to be unique with its own history and context.

    This is already being supported.

    You can create new group chat with the same group of people by clicking on 'New Chat' button and in the To line clicking on the 'arrow' button to expand Chat Title section.
    Note: chat title is optional.

    This would be very helpful. At the moment we are getting lots of requests of people that want to collaborate for project work but they don't really need to get a new Team for it. All they want is to be able to chat and share some files so the ability to have multiple chats with the same group of people and rename the conversation to the Project Name would allow for this
