Combine multiple threads - or at least improve the UI
People who are new to Teams almost reliably start new conversations instead of adding to threads. In other words, the context goes missing - which is one of the key elements that make Teams so powerful.
Multiple requests to combine threads have been declined here. I can only imagine that technical reasons are the source of the declines, because many people and organizations are dealing with this issue.
Therefore I'm repeating the request - and if the decision "at this point" is still the same, then please put some effort into the UI to make it _clear_ (!!!) to people (because it obviously is not at this point) that they are starting a _new_ (!) conversation and do _not_ add to an existing conversation.
Yes, it says in the field to "start a new conversation" - but when you look at the reality of what's happening, people do not read (or understand) those words and keep creating new conversations.
I'm also interested in this feature. I can't imagine why it's not built in already. I'm honestly a little shocked. Please add the ability to cleanup conversations!

We need this, Teams is a cluttered mess without it.

Thx a lot Stefan to don't give UP the fight with Microsoft... who are not able to understand, merging threads or moderating threats in general is essential!
