  1. Code snippets

    Code snippets takes way too many steps. The app needs a simple way to add a snippet directly from the clmessage box without needing to click on paragraph then code then language...
    Also would be nice to have a raw view of code snippets for easier copy / paste

  2. pop-out chat

    Allow the entire Chat functionality to pop out rather than just individual chats. This allows a user to dual pane between Chats & Teams. Essentially, you can hold your chat "buddy list" outside of Teams so that you can chat with multiple threads while still having Teams open on workflow.

  3. I want to be able to disable the notification that lets people know I'm typing a message.

    I should be able to completely disable the "User is typing" notification others see while I'm typing a message.

  4. Merge last message with existing reply thread

    Often I find that I inadvertently start a new thread instead of replying to an existing thread. I blame this in part on the UI design and would like to see that fixed.

    However, for this feature I'd just like an easy way to fix it after the fact. Currently I can copy the message I just typed, pasted it into the original thread and then delete it if I'm fast enough and copy/paste wants to cooperate. I'd like a feature to do the same thing but automatically. I'd like an option on the reply line context menu for the…

  6. Enable reorganization of conversations in reverse order

    It would be good to enable reorganizing or reversing the order of conversations from Newest to oldest. Currently you must scroll down to the bottom of a string and while not the end of the world it would be nice to see the most recent conversation right at the top. A per user setting would be most beneficial.

  8. Increase reactions limit for messages

    "Current message size limit reached. We can't add any more reactions."
    Would be great if we can increase this limit

  9. Add polls to Regular Private Chat (not just Teams)

    Polls in Skype was easy to use and it could be incorporated directly into a "Group Chat". Teams only allows you to do Polls through "forms" and only within an actual "Team".
    It would be very useful to have polls directly integrated into the Chat feature so that you can start quick poll in a private chat out of Teams with other people.

  10. Delete Chat Conversations

    I want to delete the whole chat conversation. Sometimes people message for one thing, and you never talk again. It gets too messy for me.

  12. Clipboard: Allow clipboard content sharing between presented desktop and controlling user (like WebEx)

    Allow clipboard content sharing between presented desktop and controlling user (like WebEx). In other words...
    - When controller copies content from the presenters desktop, that clipboard content will be accessible on the clipboard of the controller's machine for easy pasting
    - The opposite would also be true, such that the controller could copy content to clipboard from his/her machine and then the presenting desktop over Skype would have that content available for pasting from clipboard so long as the presentation mode and control permission remained in tact
    - This would obviously follow some sort of last-touched behavior where the last…

  13. migrate WhatsApp chat to Teams

    When we moved to Teams we had a lot of active WhatsApp channels that we used. WhatsApp has the ability to email your conversation history via email. It would be great if we could email it to a specific channel and continue the conversation there without losing the history.

  14. Raw markdown editor for messaging

    Hi MS guys,

    Can you please add a simple raw markdown editor for messaging?
    Currently the markdown input is so unstable.

  16. Thread subject and focusing on a thread

    When viewing a channel, it would be nice to be able to select a thread (within the channel) to focus/expand on. Sometimes the threads can get long, and distinguishing between one thread and another can be difficult. If you could select a thread and have it expand the thread so that it is the sole focus of the window, that would be nice. See Zulip for an example of how this is done well. The fact that each thread has a subject/title is very nice, as well. It is a clear/logic separation of conversations within a channel.

  17. Pop-out chat to a single, dedicated, tabbed window

    Recent update allows each chat to be popped out to its own window. If you are talking to 5+ people, that's a lot of windows to manage.

    Can the entire chat function be popped out into a dedicated chat window? Each conversation could have its own tab, and notifications on the individual tabs, etc.

  18. Auto Correct grammar and capitalization.

    At the very least capitalization should be auto corrected. Grammar would help as well but I bet the average person spends more time going back and making changes to un capitalized words than typing a message. For anyone who is using the app, this is standard in most all apps so it is hard to adjust without sending the message before proofreading.

  19. Pin conversation message

    Please let me pin a message in the conversation to stay visible. This will be helpful for announcements or alerts. Also, if you can pin it for a specific time limit that would be even better.

    Thanks, po

  20. Copy Code Snippet

    The new code snippets look great. I'd like the ability to easily copy an entire snippet. Often they're collapsed, and require expanding, mouse-selecting the entire thing (don't miss something!) and then copying. This should be a single button inside the snippet window. (top-right, opposite the title is my preference).
