  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  13. 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.

  14. Start a flow from discussion thread

    There are sometimes needs to save several discussions or threads contents into some other app for later reference.
    Adding a possibility to start a flow from discussion thread (Flow action would have to be able to get thread content in rich text or at least plain text) and send them over to OneNote page, create a new SharePoint page etc out of them.

    This could be also used to create a knowledge back "mark this message for later reference)

  15. The conversations thread is super confusing.

    It was much cleaner in Staffhub. Replying on a thread is confusing.

  16. Add setting to how many thread answers that shall be displayed

    Add a setting in Teams , that Team room threads shall show 1, 3, 5 or 10 last answers instead of just the latast one in a thread .

    I often miss answers to threads when my teammates adds 2 answers in row to a thread, since it just shows the latest one.

  18. Clicking on Activity returns wrong thread

    Sometimes, when I click on an item in the Activity pane, it just brings me to the last discussion thread posted in the channel. Manually searching for the thread based on keywords showing in the Activity pane yields no results as if the conversation doesn't exist.

  19. Merge/consolidate channels

    We changed the mind about the way we used some channels. We decided that some of the channels need to be merged. It would be nice to be able to do this without using history. We want history to be merged.

    ‪Make Teams a full email client, so it can add any guest to a conversation thread (and only that thread) using their email address. Allow guest participants in the thread to participate in the conversation via email with full (not concatenated) responses.
