How can we make Microsoft Teams better?

Make copying a chat conversation easier

At our company, 100% of its employees telecommute. This makes our preferred method of live communication to be chat. Sometimes we need to copy snippets of a conversation into a work order, and it is SO difficult to copy text from Teams. Sometimes a person's name won't even appear above their text, once pasted, and the information has to be recreated. Please test this for yourself - copy and paste a few lines of a conversation, and please fix this!!!! Thanks!

    When you copy in teams, a pop up gets in the way making it very hard to copy a word or a group of words from the chat.

    I agree! This is definitely needed. Currently to get it to display correctly, you have to take multiple screen shots and save them and attach them to the email, etc and then recipient has to open multiple images to put them all together as one conversation. Would be nice to have a print or copy feature where it displays the entire conversation with all details in a legible format like Skype and other IM programs do.
