How can we make Microsoft Teams better?

Allow removal of people from Group Chats

Once a person is added to a group chat. You cannot remove them. You must create a new chat and lose all the history.

        You can't leave a chat when you're no longer a member of the organization. Put differently, deactivated users should not be displayed any longer. Better still, anyone should be able to remove them from a chat.

        This feature is needed. Someone is accidentally sharing a group chat during a client presentation. We cannot remove this person from the chat and and that is frustrating.

        We are being told to add this issue to uservoice.

        We add it.

        It's currently top of the list and NOT being worked on.

        Less voted on issues are currently in Progress.

        really needs to be added especially when an internal chat loses a member due to an unforeseen event

        Indeed, indeed, this should be a standard option, not even a extra "feature"... now people and all users need to create new groups... everytime somebody should not be in a group (anymore, cfr. left the company, team, etc)....

        This seems so logical what we ask here... except for Microsoft???... Who thinks about these (work)flows with Microsoft??... This is a really needed feature (and indeed, 20 users max is really limited...). That this needs to be seperately developed says a lot... do designers think about logical flows when you design/develop applications?... (myself working as a consultant on digital (work)flows, hence my comment... ;-)

        Please allow us to remove users from a Chat group if they no longer need to be in it. Much more tedious to have to create a whole new Chat group again

        Please add the option to remove users from Teams chat. Our company uses this feature and now they want to remove users and our IT team can't fix this for them since its a MS issue. We want to provide the best experience for our users. Let us know when this is complete.

        Warren, how long should we wait for a solution. I have the same problem as flagged earlier below.
        This is especially important when you have a recurring team meeting and you invite someone to ONE session of the recurring meeting, you cannot remove that person from the Chat. That person continues to be able to participate in the chat session but not the actual meeting itself.

        any workaround?

        i can't imagine any argument why Microsoft decided to missed this out.
