  3. Have more work oriented emoticons.

    Have
    an "up (^)",
    a "Green checkmark",
    a "red X", a "WIP",
    a "Yes",
    a "No",
    a "On it"
    a "ETA?"
    a "No ETA"
    and "Thanks you" (maybe more) in the reaction bar.

    I see everyone wanting emotion for a work oriented product, but I have not really seen many people wanting a "fast feedback" so we can keep our focus on the work at hand by attaching the right reaction.

    Thank you very much.

  8. change the colour of the heart reaction

    Can we change the colour of the heart message reaction?

    I would love to use it more but red represents romantic love to me. Can we have it blue? green? yellow? orange? purple? Anything other than red?

  9. :p turns into a smiley before the user can type - add a delay

    If you want to post an emoji that starts with :P you simply cant without typing the whole thing out without : then adding it after.

    Steps to reproduce
    Try to type :pray

    Suggestion for fix: Add a delay so the user can type past :p

  11. Please allow users to disable GIPHY on mobile even if allowed by admin

    Users who do not care to use GIPHY/are offended by the content shown in GIPHY results should be able to disable GIPHY across all of their devices even if the tool is allowed by a Team Owner. Please make this a setting.

  13. Put the ability back to just Thumbs up posts

    You recently enabled the ability to use more than thumbs up on posts, but now have to click twice to choose one. Leave the ability to have thumbs up (or any emoji) to be default, so only one click is usable. Doubling the effort for more flexibility is no trade off.

  17. Allow R-rated gifs

    I'm gonna give the real world situation here.

    So I manage the tenants for a couple of dancing studios, role casting agencies etc and I have received questions about the limitations in gifs from giphy. Primary one of the dance studios for example are using Teams as their primary communication software and to them it's a problem that they cant communicate to the fullest with gifs. The studio is focused on street/rnb/twerk and since some of the moves in that kind of dancing could be offensive to some people, it wont show with either strict/moderate filtering. They are telling me…

  18. If I like another users like it should show double thumbs

    When someone clicks like on my message then I should be able to click on their like and then it should show double thumbs up. This would be a very good feature to have and would increase productivity immensely.

  20. Expand gif to cover the whole app screen

    we use gifs to capture simple workflow or show how to reproduce bugs. It would be nice to have ability to click on the gif so it will expand like regular image
