allow team members to respond or post to conversations anonymously
it would be good to have a way to post to conversations anonymously. This should be something that can be configurable in a channel or group.
This is especailly useful for large teams, ie: our organization is over 4,000 people.
Sometimes simple questions can feel stupid but when you post them and find out you are not the only one with the same concern. But the struggle is your name is associate with the post.
This has been revealed greatly with our organization, which has been using slido to allow anonymous option and the result has been effective Q&A and interactions.
We also find that we have vulnerable networks and people that have had incidents happen, that they are too intimidated to report. This would be an invaluable asset to flag flaws in our organization. ie: identification without the fear of repremand.

Very useful, in fact essential in classrooms, as students would not post otherwise and prefer to send an email to avoid embarrassment in case their question is obvious. Please do add these as more and more people are using it now in teaching

yes if we get this option in teams that will be really helpful in meetings.
Bump. It would be helpful in the classroom too. Though if you can make that it is activated by the organizer all the better.
bump! Why is there no reaction?
I also absolutely support this idea
This is absolutely needed and should be controlled per channel.
I work in a large IT org. Everyone in IT is mostly introverted to begin with.
I want this because I feel that collaboration does not happen because nobody wants to start a conversation and show their lack of knowledge in an area fearing loss of job or standing or whatever. On the other hand you have people that love to show off their knowledge of a subject. I think it would be great to anonymously start the conversation and have people respond as named users so they can get their kudos in also.
Absolutely key feature needed
Our organisation needs this!
Agree - would be especially great for running a Q&A / suggestion box type discussion/forum
Yes it is very helpful for company-wide Q&A team. Many people hesitate to post a question if names are open.

This would be very helpful to elicit feedback from various groups. Thank You!
I second this idea!
