Disable send message on pushing ENTER / Shift-ENTER
When typing a message I can never tell if pushing ENTER will:
- Start a new line
- Send the message
If i'm writing a bullet point list, ENTER gives me a new line.
If i'm just writing a line of text, ENTER sends the message.
Or at least it seems like that. Thats my point, its confusing.
Some apps take Shift+ENTER as a new line, others see that as a send command.
I'd like to turn off all those shortcuts, and just use the Send button to send with my mouse. That way I know whats going to happen.

Should be a user toggle option to disable send-upon-enter. With people using bullets and quotes to break up chunky text, this is becoming more of an issue. I'm constantly editing posts
That is stupid. Channels are getting hairy only because of this. I hear people saying that Outlook and other apps formalize better their work because they can follow the subjects easier, and formatation is clearer. This is a very backward ideia for business.
One of the examples, how MS is ignoring issues nowadays. Life existed before MS and will continue to exist even after MS is gone. DONT BE ARROGANT AND FIX
better to have setting to choose what to be used for send- Enter or Ctrl+Enter
Totally agree with this......so many times I have sent my message when all I have said is "Hi,".....come on MS!
Having no option is horrible. Come on Microsoft.
Here's a workaround.
Ctrl+Shft+X opens the rich format compose box (or click the 'A w/ brush'). Enter is now carriage return and Ctrl+enter is send.
Enter should be 'Next Line' by default, which idiot decided that 'Enter' is 'send message', guess he never used a keyboard before ....

Please make `Ctrl-Enter to send` an option Microsoft

There are many variants of this same request in the UserVoice add them all together and it will have thousands of votes Give the users control over what happens when they hit Enter!
I agree with the option of choosing yourself what to do the ENTER key.
Agree with you all and note there is even an icon to send a post. We don't need Enter to do this.
So glad its not just me. Please make Enter-to-send an option MicrosoftTeams, not the default; its not very intuitive.

Pls, Microsoft: *In Settings, add the option to remove Send-on-Enter*. Release this change ASAP. Nobody must hate Teams again because of that inconsequent behaviour. – And a tip for free: For every new user, make this option the default. This is a bit more complicated to be implemented, but new users must not hate Teams ever again because of that inconsequent behaviour.
I totally agree with the comments to date, but WHAT'S THE FIX???
This thread is now 2.5 years old and I still cannot find such a setting in Teams. And worse, there's absolutely no input from Microsoft!

Totally agree as new user off Slack but may go back. I've sent Too many messages by mistake before it was finished. It should at least be a setting option.
Totally, this is really annoying. Sooo many times I've sent a message by mistake before it was finished. It should at least be a setting option.

I do agree. An option to set Enter to add a newline and use something like CTRL+Enter to send a message is definitely a must-have feature for any IM/chat/messaging service.

It's definitely necessary function, especially for Japanese, who presses Enter so many times to enter characters. With Japanese IME, most chat apps send a message with Ctrl+Enter pressed. Users should be able to choose just Enter or Ctrl+Enter to send a message. I already send a number of incomplete messages to my boss. This could be good reason to quit using the Teams app.
