  1. Allow users to caption GIFs

    Slack has an option to caption your gif with your own text, but this isn't an option with Teams. This is critical in expressing exactly the sentiment desired.

  2. Automatically remove (or collapse) giphys after some time

    Hey friends! Teams is awesome and also Giphys.

    I'm just wondering if we could set some sort of expiration time for Giphys or maybe just a way to collapse the image to make things easier to read when you scroll back to a thread.

  7. Don't use Comic Sans on the stickers.. Especially the Design ones.

    It's basically a way to guarantee it won't get used by designers.

  8. Add new Giphy content rating

    Please add a new Giphy content rating between "Moderate" (PG) and "Allow all content". At least PG-13, but possibly more fine-grain across-the-board (like all primary "movie ratings").

  9. Emoji and Emote Conflicts

    The colon notation used by the Emoji One implementation conflicts with some of the Teams emotes. Specifically, no emoji that start with "s", "p", "o", "x", or "d" can be added from Emoji One as :S, :P, :O, :X, and :D all automatically convert to Teams emotes. This significantly reduces the number of emoji that can be used with the Emoji One implementation.

  11. Make it easy to insert XKCD comic stickers

    A bit silly, but so are all the other emojis, gifs and stickers...

    It would be awesome to be able to quickly search XKCD for approriate comics, and insert them into messages. E.g., a search for "tables" should find the image from Exploits of a mom (https://xkcd.com/327/).

  13. Need a recently used GIFs and emojis tab

    Would like for the ability to see recently used GIFs when hitting the GIF button. Sometimes you want to use the same reaction GIF and don't want to search for it each time.

  17. Setting to prevent GIFS from automatically play

    Gifs are super distracting when they always autoplay each time you open a conversation.

  18. Uploaded GIF's in chat have poor quality

    When uploading a gif into a conversation, the preview of the gif that plays is of very poor quality, and often times trims off the last second or two of a animated gif.
    When I'm viewing a gif in the conversation, I expect it to preview at the original quality, and at least not trim off seconds from the animated gif.

  19. better emojis!

    SImilar to slack, please have a large range of emojis. Its frustrating to have limited emojis as emojis can save time in how we respond to people's comments. Thank you very much!
