How can we make Microsoft Teams better?

Let us move messages between conversations

The confusing UI design constantly causes people to start new conversations rather than replying to existing conversations. We have to remind people every day to please use the reply box below the message you're replying to. That doesn't fix the problem that they've already started a new conversation.

Please give us the ability to click and drag a message to move it into a different conversation so we can fix these inevitable mistakes.

I realize it's possible for the person who entered a message to delete it and retype it correctly, but having to explain that is even worse than having to explain about new conversation vs reply.

    Please, this woul be cool for a moderator even in the case the UI is selfexplainotory on when to reply and when to start a new conversation (which is not in the desktop app, but it is in the mobile version)

    Not just a single message, but the ability to combine Conversations. This could be included with the requests of moving conversations between channels. If you want people to use your software, you need it make it easy for them to: rearrange conversations as things change over a period of time, fix their own mistakes, merge emails from outlook into a conversation, etc.
