  1. Ability to pin message/files/articles shared within a channel.

    Guys, please add pinned items for channels. We often pin important articles/messages/files so that the whole team can see it. Very important!

    • Need read receipts

      Mobile working, Asynchronous working of teams is a common phenomena. Read receipts let us know if the message has been seen, so we know it can be acted on. Critical when large numbers of the team are mainly mobile workers.

      • 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…

        • Allow copying whole chat conversations

          Currently, it's not possible to select & copy more than one message in a chat. When I try to select two or more messages, the focus stays on the first message making it impossible to copy whole chat.

          There are some really ugly workarounds like: https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/Microsoft-Teams/Copying-conversations/td-p/62849 which I don't consider a solution of the situation.

          I want to be able to select multiple messages at once and copy them by hitting CTRL+C.

          • @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.

            • Make new conversation replies more noticeable

              When a reply comes through on teams, the conversation is bolded to notify you that something is unread. But it's sometimes hard to see the bolded conversations. Simply adding some extra visual like the colored notification bar on outlook would help.

              • 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.

                  • 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…

                        We’ve listened and the ability to leave a chat will soon be released! To access it you will simply click the “…” overflow menu from the left rail, on the chat you wish to leave. A fly-out will appear allowing you to either Favorite, Mute, Hide, or Leave the chat.
                        Look for this early in the new calendar year! -Warren
