No way to find saved messages in chat
You can save a message in a chat, but there's no way to easily find them after.

Even better would be a way to organise saved messages into folders, like favourites in a web browser.
Agree that TEAMS has so much to do to be useful. You cant search past conversations using any keywords or even by contact name. It absolutely SUCKS!!! Teams is really disappointing, especially after I have got my 4 classes on board to use it. I feel it would be unfair to pull the plug and change apps for collaborating at this point... DARN Teams, never again.

how long are saved messages stored for on MS teams?
even when i click saved in my avatar, teams still doesn't show me my saved messages! frustrating when you expect it to work, and then have to find an alternative way to bookmark these messages which is not easy to do in teams.
Great example of The Peter Principle.

I'm an IT consultant myself who works in UX design. I was struggling to find my saved messages. Even after searching the web and understanding now I have to click my Avatar (where I would expect profile information and profile specific settings), I find it hard to keep track of saved messages. If they are not obvious, the feature is worthless. If this should be usable, it needs to work like follow-up messages in Outlook, so that I can track e.g. "To Dos" in such saved messages later. To put another way: With the same "logic" that now hides the saved messages in the Avatar context menu, you might hide my "Teams" and for what it's worth, my Chats, Calls & Activity also in the Avatar context menu, getting rid of the sidebar alltogether and making Teams completely unusable. ;-) TLDR: Please bring the very simple "Saved" feed to the sidebar.
Saved messages should be in sidebar! You can't expect users to find it by clicking their avatar.
So stupid design! Give the user a feeling that Team is a blackbox!
Please make an option to add saved messages to the sidebar as another shortcut!
but, It was hard to know these ways.
you can type "/saved" in search as well
Click your profile picture and then click Saved. I think it'd be better to have a "Saved" button on the left side with the other buttons but under your profile picture is where it is now.
