Ability to disable chat reactions
Please provided a setting that would allow a user to disable the emoji reactions on the chat feature. This gets in the way when trying to copy and paste, or simply hovering a cursor over a message.
Veronica Navarro commented
It would be especially useful in Teams for Education.
Michael O'Neill commented
Agreed. I have accidentally clicked on an angry emoji during a serious discussion when I was actually totally fine with the conversation !
Joaquim Monteiro commented
what stupid idea was this 'feature'
Hari Shankar commented
That looks so unprofessional when the reaction gets clicked by mistake when copying text/hovering mouse over it. Request for an option in admin center where that can be disabled by Teams administrator based on organization's policy.

Please remove, or provide an option to disable, this feature. It is extremely annoying, very inappropriate and can cause great embarrassment in a corporate setting.
Z K commented
That's right. Copying text out of a message is a nightmare. Please change to allow for efficient use of Teams in professional environment.
I'm using TTS application to read messages, this reactions are nightmare!
Vinoth S commented
Its most of the time accidental & annoying, keeps popping on every conversation text in the chat. Its degradation for official use.
The vast majority of my chat reactions are accidental and thus typically inappropriate (i.e. embarrassing).
Deeved Funaki commented
Yeah please let us at least disable it. It's annoying
Garrett Fuller commented
These things are in the way, and 9 time out of 10 not appropriate for the profession discussions being held.
Jason Cramsey commented
Yes, please! When I move my cursor to click a hyperlink in the chat, and before I can click the Reaction panel opens, and I instead click a reaction instead. Now that person thinks I love them or whatever other random reaction was clicked. I am never (intentionally) going to use the Reactions, so please give me a way to disable them.
