  1. Have a location for 'draft' messages, like there is for 'saved'.

    f you write an email and don't send it, the window stays open and it's saved in your drafts folder.. If you write an IM in SFB and don't send it the window or tab stays open.... end of the day when you are closing down you find you've got maybe several emails and chat messages you didn't send.
    With Teams and it's single pane, if you are distracted when writing a message (channel, 1:1, or group), and you navigate away, there is no way to know unless you go back.. but if I'd gone to the bottom of my…

  2. Function for sending a countdown to channel or person

    I suggest adding a feature that sends a countdown to a channel or person (a line of text that counts down to a specific time).

    In it's simplest from it would just be a command like /countdown [minutes] [description] that would add a line of text to the chat which would continuously be updated to count down.

    Just a simple countdown is the main reason for this idea but it can be built upon further and improved in many ways such as:
    * Popup with a date/time selector
    * Link that let's you add the countdown to your calendar
    *…

  3. Do NOT reorder messages based on replies

    If a message has replies, Teams changes the order of messages so that the original message takes on the timestamp of the latest reply.

    DO. NOT. DO. THAT.

    It is horribly flow-breaking to have the original conversation reordered based on later replies. This is totally unnecessary. The Activity feed can help me quickly jump to "new" posts regardless of their location in the channel order.

  4. Dark theme problems!

    See thread for issues related to dark theme. Here are some that are noted:

    1. In dark theme, the warning messages are quite unreadable in the private messaging window

    2. When an email is sent in from Outlook on the Web when I’m using the dark theme, the text in the email is very dark as per the original email. When viewing this email with Teams using the default (light) theme, it looks great.

    3. In Teams chat, no way to turn text back to WHITE, when using the dark theme.

    4. Using the dark theme, I have to hunt around a bit to…

  6. Forward Conversations to chat/another team/channel

    I love this feature in mobile - would really use it in the Windows app/browser/Mac app. The ability to take a chat message, or channel message, and from the '. . .' menu have the forward option, where you can forward the message to another person, or to another channel/team.
    That would help us use group chat for conversations outside of the team with non team members, then take the final message that has a solution to a 'problem' and pass it back to the team.

  7. Left Align Chat messaging

    For individual/group chats (not the Teams chat), can you PLEASE left align the chat, it's too reminiscent of AOL. There is no need for the back and forth, left to right between two people.

  8. Full width chat

  9. Org Wide Broadcast Messages

    I think it would be nice to have the ability to send out messages to all users in the organization. This would be useful for emergencies or other company wide broadcasts.

  10. Pop Out Entire Chat List in New Window

    Similar to having Skype Chat. It would be helpful to have a window of your chats separate from your Teams window that you can pop out. This would enable chatting and not disrupting the work that you are doing. The singular pop outs for chat is great, but you are not easily able to change to a new chat without disturbing your workspace within Teams.

  11. Code Snippet Improvements - Shortcuts, Copy/Paste, Wrapping

    Sharing code is very clunky on Teams. I'd argue that the most people do multiline block comments to share code however this causes problems with line endings, wrapping, and ultimately copy and pasting. There are a number of tickets around this, so I think the entire concept needs to be rethought.

    Ideally, I'd like to see:
    1. Shortcut for Code Snippet - Most assume that Markdown (```) is the default way to share code, this is not true. Currently, as a developer, I need to mouse over to a format button, mouse over to a ellipsis of more options, and…

  12. SMS

    SMS to Teams phone system. Would love to have people "text" my work number and it show as a chat in Teams. Would love to start a chat in Teams and it is sent as an SMS to a mobile device.

  13. Allow Team owners to drag broken conversation threads back to the main conversation.

    We often get broken threads by people replying too quickly to a conversation and using the 'Start new conversation' as opposed to 'reply'. This really kills the threaded conversation, and leads to multiple conversations occurring and out of order. Team owners, or perhaps a 'channel' admin role, should be able to drag the broken threads back to the main conversation in order to rebuild the conversation. Having to tell people to 'use reply' is insulting. This is also true when an email comes into the channel that is about a conversation, but creates its own thread.

  14. Allow self @Tag

    Allow the use of the @Tag feature to tag yourself to better visualize that you are claiming responsibility for something. Currently @MyName does not bring up an option to select myself, only my teammates.

  15. Quote/Reply

    Its funny that Quote/Reply feature is available for Android app but not available on Desktop client. Its such a useful and small feature to leave out.

  16. Removed messages should disappear from Activity/Feed

    I noticed that when a user posts a message on any channel then the same user removes it, the message remains visible in all users activity/Feed list.

    At last for users that received the notification for that message.

    A deleted message should not be visible/readable in the activity/feed.

  17. Can incoming emails sent into a channel generate notifications the same way conversations do?

    If I'm following a channel I'd like to be able to receive notifications on ALL activity in that channel. The biggest thing that's missing is the ability to get banner notifications and a number in the Teams icon (like when someone posts a new conversation) for incoming emails to the channel.

    We want to have a group of people monitor automated alerts coming into a channel and respond to them but without notifications we have to keep bringing the Teams window up and manually checking it.

  18. Send Audio Recording from Microsoft Teams Desktop

    I see you can press the microphone button now and send an audio message directly from a mobile device. Can we also have that button for the desktop app?

  20. When sharing a chat to new persons, also files in that chat should be shared.

    When sharing a chat to new persons, also files in that chat should be shared automatically.
    Currently when you add persons to existing chat that does apply permissions to files shared earlier (prior adding new persons) when you have shared chat history.
