How can we make Microsoft Teams better?

chat feature pop ontop of where you are working in Teams

When working on Word within Teams Desktop application it would be nice for new chat update to pop ontop of the word doc, or at the side if seleceted. At the moment you come out of the word doc into the Chat section, then need to go back into files and find the file you were working on.

    i would LOVE this addition. All too many times, I will be updating something in our planner app tab and then go to respond to a chat and loose all my work. Its very frusterating.

    This would be a huge advantage - at the moment, we still use Skype so Skype and Teams work well together for fast paced workstream collaboration - once we loose Skype, if we are forced to jump out of documents that take say five or ten seconds to load, just to see what the next message is in a chat channel, it will slow things down considerably - and we may resort to using something like, say ... Slack for chat...
