  1. slash commands are a must-have

    Slash commands for just about every type of function are a must have. They are familiar and easy to use without having to touch your mouse, they are UI-agnostic. Admittedly not terribly discoverable – but the UI is even worse, as their is no real option for auto-completion of UI elements, now is there?

  2. Improve chat history search

    It looks like those designing the Chat are not really using it. Searching the chat history is still an awful experience:
    1. When you are in a conversation with a person and want to search for something, you want BY DEFAULT the results from the conversation with THAT person. But no, the smart designer of Chat was thinking to flood you first with a lot of results and then to ask you for few additional clicks to filter what you need...
    Please change the default to show the results for the current conversation or add another quick find or provide…

    This feature request has now moved to “working on it”. The team is actively working on this request and I will share more details as they become available.

  3. "Jump to Channel" Keyboard shortcut

    Similar to CTRL+K kb shortcut for Slack. I use this often and I'm sure most do as well. It's much easier to just to a channel rather than click through them.

  4. Parent-Child Teams

    Can you have the ability to make Teams as part of a bigger team e.g.

    Team
    |_Sub-Team 1
    |_Sub-Team 2
    |_Sub-Team 3

    There is a Distributio List (O365 group) gets created for the team. As you group sub-teams under parent team, a DL of DLs should get created. This allows for better management of the group and sub-groups

  5. Command-Line Interface to Open Directly in a Chat Thread

    Skype for Business has a command line interface (CLI) where a the program can be launched and go directly to an IM chat for a specific contact. The command line for Skype is: "C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Office\root\Office16\lync.exe" sip:%who%@BigCorpration.com

    I use this in my keyboard automation software, AutoHotkeys, so that I can go directly to chat with a colleague without using the mouse, and without having focus on Skype.

    Please implement in Teams.

  6. Main Tab for saved/tagged items

    It would be nice if I could get to my Saved Item faster by having it in the main PowerBar. Also, it would be nice to tag various conversations and view them here as well.

  7. Let me download photos at least

    I want to be able to save photos from Teams. Basically, copy Slack on everything
