  1. Feature for sorting threads diffrently

    It would be great to have a feature that enables users to select how they want threads in channels presented. In a very active channel - it could be very annoying to have threads switching places in the channel based on latest update. In some cases it would be better if the threads was sorted chronologically in a channel. This would be good to choose on an individual user basis / team or channel

  2. Show threads in team chat in list view

    We have to show all messages in thread view. It's easy to see.
    However, if we want to see lots of messages in the list, we have to scroll a lot and take a lot of time. So, I'd like to propose an altanative way to switch the list view of threads just one click.
    In the list view, we can show thread title, message summary, crated date, last posted date and thread owner and sort the threads like SharePoint list.

  4. It's hard to keep track of individual threads

    It's hard to keep track of individual threads. It would be so much better if we had a reference by thread number (as a ticket number in some helpdesk apps)

    E.g., someone has marked me as a a stakeholder in a thread. I read the thread but did not have time to respond. The only option I have now is to make the thread unread, which is not right. I should be able to flag this thread for future response (a "todo" flag) and should be able to refer to this thread easily by a number. E.g. "Look…

  5. Attach to thread with ^

    In the main text box, typing ^ as the first character should attach the message to the latest thread as a reply, ^^ would attach to the one before it.

    The attachment should happen upon typing the character, so as to prevent the a last second thread from being started just before you post your message.

  6. Mute conversation thread not working

    The ability to mute was added recently https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public/suggestions/35099476-ability-to-mute-a-conversation-thread

    But it's not working for me if I mute the thread in a channel (general) where I have the notification options set to "Banner and feed", "Include all replies" and "Banner and feed". If I choose to mute a thread that should supersede the channel notification settings in all cases except when @ is used.

  7. Improve UI for threaded conversations

    I think that the threaded conversation view has a fundamental UI problem.

    At present, the text control at the bottom of the view will start a new conversation, and replying to an existing conversation requires a specific action.

    We have been trained by pretty much every other chat program in the world that the box at the bottom of the screen is for typing a reply to the current conversation. To change this behavior requires Teams users to un-learn a common behavior and re-learn it just for this program.

    Users spend most of their time using other programs. Conforming…

  8. Threading in personal conversation

    Please bring threading to personal conversation outside of a team channel. In some cases Channels aren't the available option to dicuss something. Threading makes a conversation more structured and therefore having this option within at least a private group conversation would be a big win for moving all the conversations into teams and leaving Slack behind.

  9. unread feed repeats for every message in a thread

    When viewing the unread feed, a thread with multiple unread messages will keep reappearing. To try it for yourself, follow a channel, and then walk away for a while while several messages are put in a thread. Even better, follow two channels and let two threads develop. As you click on each unread entry, the other one will pop-up back to life to show the next message.

    Please track each thread as read/unread instead of each message. If there is a problem with finding your place in oversized threads, then have it track the message in that …

  12. Share Email Thread to Outlook Enhancement

    So I love the fact that you can now "Share" a Teams chat thread as an email. I think this is super handy to brief someone on the context of the conversation. However, I feel an opportunity has been missed.

    I believe that you should be able to reply to the thread from the email directly, instead of having to click the link to open Teams.

    I believe this would improve the experience as it would allow you pull in specific external people to specific threads to provide feedback on the conversation.

    Also I do not think this would…

  14. Ability to print a conversation thread

    Our HR unit is using Channels with threads that is to be printed for handout purposes (procedures) They are suggesting the ability to print a thread would be very helpful as oppose to having to screenshot the whole page.

  16. Make it easier to see new messages in a thread

    When there are new messages inside a thread we only get a number telling us there are X new messages and even that disappear when we expand the thread. It would be nice if there was an indicator in the thread like the line that gets placed outside the thread.

  17. Ability to open a thread in a sidebar

    It's really hard to keep communication within two or more threads in the same channel (or general conversation in a channel AND in a specific tread within this channel).

    Idea: add an ability to open a thread in a sidebar (like you open a thread in a separate screen in the mobile app), so you can read/reply into the thread (sidebar) and to the channel (main window) without affecting each other.

  18. Poor quality image pasted in Teams thread

    If I copy and paste an image file or use Ctrl + Alt + PrtScn to capture a screen shot and paste it in Teams thread, the image is shown in the thread, but its quality is poor.
    If we see the image as a file, the quality is fine, but I would request the image in the thread should be better quality.

  19. Threading helper hotkey

    Threading is weird. I like it, but I'm not used to it. Thus, I frequently start typing in the main chat box when I want to reply.

    It would be awesome to have a hotkey that would change your input focus to the previous reply field. Hitting it again would move back to the next previous thread, and so on.

    Bonus points if it carries the half-entered text you'd already typed with it.

  20. Reply to a specific message higher up in a thread

    Our team is using threaded discussions properly, but sometimes I want to respond to a specific message higher up in the thread -- not at the bottom of the thread.

    This would also suggest the need for deeper hierarchy of threads. Each reply should be offset within a thread (and there should be replies to replies to replies, etc.) and you should be able to collapse these hierarchies for ease of reading and viewing.
