How can we make Microsoft Teams better?

Ability to archive Chat Conversations

Please add the ability to archive and/or delete conversation history form the Chat conversations. It's terrible to open a chant while sharing a screen and everyone sees your past chats.

    Conversations get overwhelmed and would be good to clear out the feed occasionally but still be able to look back on them as necessary.

    I agree, we are using Teams for management of a project and once conversations in respect of bugs/defects have been resolved it would be great to be able to archive them, or move them to a Closed bucket.

    To provide the use case: We use channels for conversations on topics. Sometime there are more than 25 topics in flight and gets clunky to find the topic/conversation to reply to. If we can archive conversations (example move it to even top in the channel) so that active conversations stay at bottom.

    Or: provide a button that says mark closed. And reopen. Mark closed should move it top. If some one wants to reopen can mark reopen and continue the conversations

    This also gets way to cluttered with users accidentally creating new chats unnecessarily. We can delete our own comments but not other users
