  3. Stop Converting Text to Emoticons

    If I type D:, as in the D-drive of a computer, it converts it to an emoji. If I hit the backspace it completely deletes it, but doesn't undo the emoji conversion. I'd like a way to be able to disable the conversion of text-to-emoji (and not have it display incorrectly for a recipient) or have the option to backspace when a piece of text is converted to emoji and have it revert back to what it was.

    Thanks!

  4. Add the ability to favorite a GIF for later reference

    I would like to have the ability to favorite/save a GIF as one would save a message, then access favorited GIFs via the chat toolbar button. See mockup for desired experience.

  5. Change how emojis render

    Currently the rendered emojis look horrid with the non-stop gif like animation. Can we have emojis like how slack does them? Clean render, without animating them.

  6. Emoji animations

    Please add an option to stop the emojis from moving. Or just remove the animations altogether.
    It is madly distracting.

  7. Disable giphy, stickers, and memes per channel

    There should be settings per channel which would allow / disallow use of Giphy, stickers and memes per channel (not just per team).

    This would allow a channel for general silliness and another where people are not allowed to post stickers/memes/giphy.

    We are seeing that a project can quickly be derailed when a few people start posting memes in the middle of serious discussions to express themselves. While I agree that there's a time and place and those people should be more disciplined, it would be better to restrict those things per channel, so a serious conversation in a particular…

  9. slash command: shrug

    Slack, MatterMost and hip chat either allow custom / commands, or support /shrug directly. Its a small, but kind of nice feature.

  11. Please remove your skype smiles

    Please remove your skype smiles - they are really awfull. Just make them look like original emoji (like in slack) or at least like the ones in touch keyboard in Windows 10. Please, it really hurts my eyes. Do a survey on that or something - I'm sure nobody likes skype set of smiles.

  12. thumbs up emoji

    Please make your thumbsup emoji (yes) not the weird flesh color and stop it from moving. I use the thumbsup all the time in conversation and I'm not sure why but I hate this emoji.

    Great tool though you guys are doing great.

  13. Cannot view emoji's

    Hi Guys, Love MS Teams so far - however myself and few colleagues are stuggling to be able to view emoji's in the web app or locally downloaded version.

    We just see a blank text space.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated :)

  18. Ability to disable chat reactions

    Please provided a setting that would allow a user to disable the emoji reactions on the chat feature. This gets in the way when trying to copy and paste, or simply hovering a cursor over a message.

  19. Add Giphy Search Operators

    For example putting things in quotes should search for an exact match.

    Keywords should default to AND search rather than OR. If I'm searching for "wwe mankind" I want gif results that include both tags, rather than just one of them.
