  2. Copy & Paste is tempermental

    Users reporting multiple copy/paste issues for text:

    1. Can't paste multi-messages. Often, only the first line pastes, the rest disappear. As one user puts it: "On the Windows 10 desktop client it is nearly impossible to copy multiple messages from the chat history. A fraction of a second after letting go of the mouse, the highlight collapses down to a single message."

    2. Can't paste in general: "Copy & Paste is tempermental, when i try to paste text in from other sources it simply doesn't paste, but then if I only copy a few (3-6) words then it does. It means I…

  3. Collapse/expand conversations (hide/show replies)

    Users are asking for a few different things:

    1. Collapse/expend all button -- single click to collapse or expand all threads
    2. Admin setting for collapse/expand
    3. Button to re-collapse a thread once its been expanded (right now you have to navigate to another channel in order for the thread to re-collapse)

    Please add more granular requests in the thread below.

    Item 1 and 2 are Under Review.

  4. time delay post

    It is late on Friday and I would like my staff to get a non-urgent message when they get to work on Monday morning. If I wait to post it, I might forget. If the message was urgent, I'd want it to go through.

  5. Away Status

    Allow users to choose time elapsed until showing status as Away. Five minutes is certainly not enough time elapsed to show someone as Away. Users need more control of this status.

  6. Add option to have non-threaded channels

    I'd like the capability when I add a new channel to make it non-threaded. Threaded conversations are great for some channel topics, but other more casual channels get too cluttered with multiple threads. I'd prefer to have the flexibility to decide which format I want when I create the channel.

    This request is still being considered by the feature team but a final decision has not yet been made. I’m still awaiting more details.

  7. improve speed of scrolling up in chats

    a ton of time is wasted waiting for chat text to appear then to find that its not what you were looking for

    please preload more data or reduce the delay on loading the content like google hang outs does, its much smoother scrolling thru history

    its difficult to navigate thru recent history when its all blocks

  9. Read receipt for Channel messages

    I understood that read confirmations for chats are now active, but for channel messages this is not planned. This is a very desirable option. Leave it up to the users whether they want to activate it or not!

  10. Allow external users to access group chat

    Why isn't it possible to add external users to group chat? It's a big step backwards comparing to Skype for Business and it makes life more difficult for companies working with various clients on a daily basis.

    Thank you for your feedback! We are happy to announce the next step in our journey for External Access support as we enable you to start a group chat with up to 250 participants across different organizations. The team is testing this internally, and it is important to note that you will have to be enabled by admin policy for External Access in order to be able to use this new functionality. We will share an update as soon as one is available.

  11. Keep the messages in channels in chronological order

    Whenever a reply is posted to a previous post, the post is moved to the bottom of the channel, thus moving it out of chronological order. This is much too confusing when looking through the channel to ensure each post has been responded to/answered. Please always keep the posts in chronological order. When clicking on a post notification/activity, this should take you to the post where it is located in chronological order, not at the bottom of the channel.

    Great news! We just started working on this for the AUDIO portion. We are still trying to determine feasibility for the video portion of your request.

  13. Improved Chat Pop-Out

    Thanks for finally releasing the chat pop-out, but unfortunately it needs some work. Individual pop-out windows for every conversation is frustrating, confusing, and inefficient. There should be an ability to pop-out the entire chat component within Teams, or AT LEAST group together the pop-out chats into one Window. Also, if the pop-out chats are minimized and a new message comes in, when you click on the notification banner, it opens the chat in the main Teams window, not the pop-out chat that you have with that person. This defeats the whole purpose of pop-out chats. Please fix this.

  14. Way to filter chats by date

    So I was able to find the date that a piece of a conversation happened very easily, the search capability is amazing.

    However when I got to the chat session it has been going on for some time and getting back to the date that I needed was slow.

    would love some kind of option that you could go to which just shoed the days that there was a conversation. That way we could quickly scroll to the date and then expand the chat content for just that date.

    Chat Window Example:

    7/1/2018

    7/2/2018

    7/3/2018

  15. Enable Voice Messaging

    Add a voice messaging function like it is common in personal messaging apps like whatsapp, wechart, line etc.
    This can be very useful if on the go for complicated messages to type.

  16. @Tag without selection

    Current when @Tagging someone you have to type @PartOfTheirName then wait for the dialog to pop up, then hit tab or enter click the desired name (Person, Channel, Team). If you fail to use the dialog the @Tag fails to work even if you match the name perfectly.

    What we'd like to see is typing @Name or @ChannelName or @TeamName just works even without using the dialog.

    I’m excited to share that I got to use this in our experimental settings the other day. We’ve built it and are testing it internally. I’ll let you know once it moves up in the validation rings!

  17. Create a chat from an email in outlook

    It would be really cool if you could forward/send an email to create a Team chat. This would help in driving the adoption of chat over email.

  18. IRC Gateway

    Slack has an IRC gateway that can be used cross platform for any OS that has IRC. (Windows, Linux, Unix, BSD, etc.) No need for native clients.

  19. Whiteboard on chat

    I believe it would be beneficial to include the whiteboard on the chat function as well as the meetings function.

  20. Add a remind me option

    Please add a "remind me" option for each message. Sometime I can read a message but cannot respond to it right now. So my goal here is to set a reminder to respond to the message later.
