  1. Bring Back The Clippy Sticker Messaging Pack

    Please bring back the Clippy Sticker Messaging Pack for Teams. It was a really fun sticker pack that brought back the nostalgia of a favorite Microsoft mascot in a new and fun way!

  2. Hide the reply button under every message

    The "reply" button is WAY too large under each message. I recommend either making the button just a smaller icon and off to the side of a message, or only showing it on hover.

    Hate to be the bearer of bad news. This item has been declined. There will be no work to hide or remove the reply button.

    As many people have commented, a big ask is to help improve how people distinguish between giving a reply and starting a new message.
    For that the focus will be on this item. “Better visual delineation between `Reply` and `Start a new conversation`”

  3. Display 'user is typing' indication also in Teams Channel

    While there's an indication of the user that's actively typing in the Chat area, I'd like to have this in the Teams area as well

  4. Sort conversations so the latest posts are at the top rather than bottom

    Messages currently come in with latest content at the bottom of the page. Would be good to be able to re-sort so the conversations with the most recent traffic are at the top. Also, move the "Start a new conversation" to the top so that its clear you're adding a new conversation and not responding to a prior thread (we have a lot of newbies who don't use the "reply" because the compose bar is on the bottom, and thus end up creating a bunch of new threads accidentally).

    Conversations in Groups starts at the top and forces old ones…

    Hi everyone, thanks so much for this request.

    We have thought this through and decided to prioritize other user-requested items, so this one has been declined. But please don’t stop telling us what you want, because we’re still working to get many of those done. We’re listening and appreciate your support and patience.

  5. IMPROVED Markdown Support

    IMPROVE actual markdown:

    Disable auto-formatting of markdown
    italic not bold or italic
    Make it the SAME as GITHUB
    https://guides.github.com/features/mastering-markdown/
    which is closer to DaringFireball
    http://daringfireball.net/projects/markdown/

    IMPROVE for mobile:
    Please add markdown support for Android client.

    IMPROVE for other languages:
    Currently the code formatting doesn't work for german keyboard users due to the system expecting another character after the
    Due to that, Teams does not recognize the
    and interprets it as any other character.
    I think that needs to change.

    We’re fixing bugs identified in the comments, and other user reports we’ve received around markdown, but we’ve decided we’re not going to fundamentally change our markdown support.

    This is the first time we’ve declined a request, and it didn’t come easily. We weighed this against other important features we’re working on to deliver and we had to make some tough choices.

    Really appreciate your understanding on this, and please feel free to ping me if you have any questions, complaints, or need to rant.

  6. Drag chat messages to merge them into one reply thread

    Since a lot of people type messages in quick succession, it'd be helpful to have the ability to drag and merge them together into individual "reply threads".

    Thanks everyone for the clarifications to this request. Upon further technical review, we have decided to decline this request at this time.

    Please continue to contribute your ideas — they push us to innovate, problem solve, and really understand your needs.

    Thank you!

  7. Add ability to collapse images

    Please add the ability to collapse images and gifs. I keep my chat open on a third monitor. It isn't distracting whenever all I see is text but adding images and gifs causes it to catch my eye as I'm working on the other monitors. Slack also has an option to have images and gifs shown as collapsed by default.

  8. @mention like yammer

    I would really like to be able to @mention a user who is not in a Teams Team (public or private) or a Channel but a conversation only, similar to how Yammer does it. https://support.office.com/en-us/article/External-messaging-FAQ-Yammer-35b59d6c-bb1c-4541-bf19-9f67d2f2b199 .

    I feel this would then stop the massive list of Teams being added to my left hand navigation and it would also mean I would not need access to the whole Teams team to collaborate.
