Make Teams more like garbage can, less like landfill
The more I use Teams, the messier it gets. It's like a landfill that just keeps growing. Email is like a garbage can, at least I'm able to clean out old junk that's no longer relevant.
Today I tried to find a conversation I had with someone from May, without knowing a specific word to "search" for. I had to repeatedly press the "Home" button to go to the short-term top of the chat with that person, and repeat for a few minutes. Or if I knew a word to search, it would have taken me only to an individual message, but when I'd go to the context, it'd take me to the bottom of the chat (although I tried now, and that seems to behave better today).
I want to be able to manage my history better. File away sub-conversations, with a specific name (similar to how email conversations behave naturally, separate messages), I don't want every sub-conversation with a single person to keep filling up in one giant list. There are many other Teams Feedback requests similar to this, and some are symptoms of the problem, if it was easier, many of your requests would not be needed. Searching wouldn't be as painful if I could clean out old junk, there'd be less garbage to dig through. There are many requests about "Delete"; maybe "Hide" is a better word, like gone from me forever, but still on the server, in case Microsoft's intention is for stuff to never go away. But at least let me clean up. Similarly, today I have a specific "Team" chat with a group of people. We got 4 conversations going, each for a different topic. One just came to resolution; I want that out of my view, filed away, with a title, where I can find it if I go looking in the future, but not piled up into the endless chat landfill. Or maybe we should do separate "Teams" for every topic, but I'm working on building a new application, there will be hundreds of sub-conversations, I don't want hundreds of "Team" chats on my left navigation... unless you can provide a way to "Hide" some or "File Away". Teams needs to much work, it should not have been marketed to my company as a sufficient product to use.
