Ctrl+Enter for line break, like in Slack and Skype
Use cntrl+enter for a new line (break) within the application (like Slack allows)
Since if you press cntrl+enter it responds by sending the message since there is an enter in the keystroke
In Teams, the shortcut is Shift+Enter. Try that — it should create a linebreak for you.
Also, you can always just click the little “A” in the compose box (on the lower left side of the compose box) to expand the compose box, and this turns the “Enter” key into a line break.

@suphatra, when typing I have an unconscious habit to press Enter for a new line and I can't train myself to work differently when using teams. Hitting the A helps (or pressing Ctrl+Shift+X), but it is a hassle having to do this every time I create a message.
this should be settable to CTRL + ENTER (or even just ENTER, as in Slack, which remains 1e6 times better). MS Windows UI / UX designer shittiness strikes again
Key take away from this is and several other feature requests is that different applications have different defaults. This leads to different user having different natural behavior/expectations on key functionality. All my applications use CTRL+Enter to send (I'm not using Slack)
I suggest to make it user configurable, this way everyone can have Teams working in a way that is natural to them.

You know what is COMPLETELY RIDICULOUS?
Designing a UX that changes the role of a heavily used button like 'Enter' between two completely different functions (newline vs submitting a comment) based on a nuanced list of editing scenarios.
Oh, so if I'm doing a formatted list it's ok for me to press enter for newlines... but if i'm doing an informal list with newlines it will submit? Especially annoying when MS has terrible auto-recognition of when a formatted list is being started (which it does, I assure you)!
Oh, but if I hit enter three times while in a formatted list:
- The first 'enter' creates a new list item
- The second 'enter' exits the formatted list and creates a new paragraph
- The third 'enter' submits the comment
Please find the dev/design team responsible for this atrocity and slap them.
Enter should be 'Next Line' by default, which idiot decided that 'Enter' is 'send message', guess he never used a keyboard before ....
Yes, be consistent with the option in Skype:
Use Ctrl or Shift or Alt + Enter to send
please provide an setting for this to control the behavior (like in Skype or Telegram)
When the compose box is not expanded, you still see the send icon. Implying that you can use enter for line breaks and the icon when you're ready to send, as typically done in other interfaces. Including this one!
Also, it's totally not intuitive that a format icon would expand the compose box, and your settings icon doesn't let you adjust settings, it's actually a "manage teams" function.

Ctrl+Enter should send the message, and Enter should insert line break.
Anyway, I should be able to customize any combination in settings.
who moron had removed that the Enter line break?

+1 here, nothing more infuriating especially for mobile users accidently hitting the enter key when trying to backspace on a mobile device. Hangouts behaves the same way, Should be an option to at least customise this as a preference.
I agree with Simon. It should have the option of being the same as Outlook, CTRL+Enter is to send a message. This would avoid many accidentally sent messages when the Enter key is hit mistakenly mid message.
You should be able to configure so that Enter is a line break and Ctrl-Enter actually sends it - just like Outlook!!!

Agreed. Slack offers a option to change Enter to add a new line rather than Send the message. It's very difficult to type quickly if every time I hit ENTER it posts (most of my messages consist of quickly typed info consisting of 2-3 short paragraphs.)

In Skype you could either
* use Ctrl-Enter to add a new line to a message
* switch the meaning of ENTER and Ctrl-ENTER so that I could compose messages multi line per default and use Ctrl-ENTER for sending.
I really miss this on Teams.
Therefore I'd like a way to configure my Teams client so that I can easily do multi line posts.
