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.

This thread was set up almost two years ago and there is still no solution! Its just about adding one combobox to choose enter key function. Whats the problem? I doubt that Microsoft developers are using Teams otherwise they would fix it a long time ago.

Either change to Enter for a new line, or use Word-wrap. Currently sending half-finished messages, and this will be an issue if Teams is to become more widely used.

I second this. Very irritating to constantly have to edit messages after accidentally sending them >.>
Very very very annoying! Please add a possibility to define it by the user.

This is maybe the most annoying and stupid feature of Teams, and there are several instances or variants of this same request submitted (and I just checked the first search result page)
The best option seems to be:
Enter = New Line (Paragraph Break)
Shift+Enter = Forced New Line (No Paragraph Break)
Ctrl+Enter or Icon = Send.Fix it, pleeease!
I would like the option in the Android app to choose whether Enter is Send or not. Add it as a configuration in Settings.
There needs to be an option for phone and tablet users. It's driving me nuts!!!

If you do a survey of popular applications that have messaging, I think you will find they have the option to control Enter Key behavior.
It's tough to get used to the enforced Enter to send behavior, because it is not consistent across messaging apps. There are few things as embarrassing as sending an unfinished message in a professional setting.
Please make this an optional setting.

I just started using Skype for business at my new job. Using Enter to send is causing me to send a lot of these types of messages. Please allow users to change this functionality, this is really an unacceptable design flaw for a business software. I think enough users are asking for this for it to be considered in any future updates.

Try this workaround as we await the addition of this feature in Setting so we can turn it on or off. Here it is, using the "Compose Box" and you are "Shift-Free" for the time being. ,
Note that even if you are in the Normal Box (not the Compose Box), if you start with "1." it will take the Entre into the next numeric.

This is driving me nuts. It is very easy to disable on other IM platforms...
We canceled roll out of teams because of this. I've been messaging Microsoft trying to see if we can get it fixed. Thinking of shifting to slack which is not ideal.
+1. Sending on "Return" is very annoying. I know they want to make it more "chat-like" but it is a bad UI decision.
Most chat apps don't even send on "return" key.

Ctrl + Shift + x gives you an expanded control box where ENTER does move the cursor to a new line, and Ctrl + ENTER sends the message.
It would be ideal if Ctrl + ENTER was the send key press in the normal control box.
This function was an option (probably for years) in versions prior to 220.127.116.11 and should be put back in place.
Anyone who types on a computer regularly can have an issue with the send on <enter> function. One wants to make sure you don't erroneously send incomplete or uncorrected messages.

my return key worked fine for several months. today it started to function as a send key. i did not do anything that i am aware of to change the setting. very frustrating.
Ideally there should be a way to switch 'Shift-Enter' and 'Enter' functionality OR simply just disable 'Enter sends message'. Seems very close to a deal breaker for use of the application sadly.

Yes - definitely agree that there must be an option to turn off "enter-to-send".
Shift-Enter is not intuitive, and it makes for difficult typing (and re-editing) when composing longer posts - some of which do add value.
