How can we make Microsoft Teams better?

Full API to write/receive messages so we can create new clients or integrate it into other tools

Slack has a full API, so people can write their own client apps or integrate Slack messaging into existing apps. Would be great to have something similar. Especially combined with giving external users access to Teams.

        Current desktop client is just awful, half-baked piece of something which can be barely called software. If you have such difficulties implementing simple chat app, then you can open API for others to implement good client on their own.

        +1 - our use case is different - we want to provide an analytics service for our users so they can see how many posts they've done, likes received etc.

        This is an important feature that whose absence will limit my organizations ability to fully adopt this product in place of Slack.
