do not send messages when <enter> is pressed. change to another shortcut key.
I have to edit my messages several times because every time I press enter for a Carriage Return, it sends instead. I know the shortcut key for Carriage Return is SHIFT+ENTER but its not very intuitive and makes for miscommunication. Thank you for your consideration.
A lot of chat users are used to pressing enter/return after a statement / sentence. As such it ends in a stream of chat boxes popping up which can be especially annoying if you're in the middle of a chat with someone else. As such, can you please add an option so that pressing return doesn't send the message. Most chat / texting services have this.
Please give an option for this. Thank you!

This send command from enter pressed is not only inefficient, but costly to time if using chat daily. Please fix in settings or defaults so we can change this
Peter Colback commented
There must be an option somewhere or a default action that can be changed.. It is inconsistent to the other chat programs I use and therefore end up sending the message too early and then having to edit it
Katrina Wright commented
CTRL+Enter would be more intuitive, just like other Microsoft products, or just give people the option

This goes beyond mere convenience for me.
I need to sign in daily using two-factor authentication. When Teams starts, it shows the login window. and I start typing my password. In the couple of seconds I've been typing, though, the main Teams window has loaded, I've typed half my password in chat, and pressing Enter has posted it.
At least, it looks like it's posted. I'm not sure how that's possible when I'm not signed in!
I have to delete the message, re-open the login window, and sign in. All this could be avoided if Enter to Send could be turned off.

+1 to making it a preference. I prefer "enter to send", but this is behavior that strongly divides people, and most of my apps allow me to choose which I prefer.
PLEASE change sent to ctrl-enter or just require hitting send. Make it a preference.

How difficult is it to add an option in the settings? I'll never understand why they don't just give people options.
Glad I'm not the only one who finds this annoying! If you use the format tool, (A with a little paintbrush under it) the enter key WORKS THE WAY IT SHOULD! (but you have to remember to click the format tool first)
Ooh look, enter even works as carriage return here!

In these days where COVID is forcing a lot of video conferencing, I am terribly surprised to learn that the "enter-sends-the-message" issue hasn't yet been fixed after three years and especially after what must be a huge uptick in use the past nine months. There are a number of competing products out there handling the messaging part much more intuitively. If MS took the time to create Teams to begin with, I'm sure it must be interested in some portion of that market share?
As a programmer, I'm sure this fix would take a comparatively very short time to implement, and a lot of users would be a lot happier.

And still nothing? For the love of Cthulhu, Microsoft, why!?
There's also a few instances where I'm logging into remote workly and if I'm not carefull, beacause I may have moved the Teams window to the side, my cursor is now active in Teams. Still thinking I'm in my loggin screen I type my password and hit ENTER. .....password is now broadcasted.
Just to make things a LOT worse, you HAVE to use "enter" if you are in a list (or trying to exit a list) or in a code block (or trying to exit a code block), but if you press "enter" again after exiting the element, it submit. This inconsistency makes Teams very painful to use.

The settings possibility like in Skype is needed to decide, if I want to use <Enter> for a new line or for sending in general.
ENTER should be just Enter/New Line
If I wanted to SEND I would click on SEND - Set up something ELSE as the keyboard command for this!

I support this as well.
+1. Please consider this, it's very annoying...
+1 for me. Can't believe such a basic capability isn't available after all this time...Yammer, Slack etc all have this. It's just _normal_ to expect this to be there.
