  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  4. Add option to have non-threaded channels

    I'd like the capability when I add a new channel to make it non-threaded. Threaded conversations are great for some channel topics, but other more casual channels get too cluttered with multiple threads. I'd prefer to have the flexibility to decide which format I want when I create the channel.

    This request is still being considered by the feature team but a final decision has not yet been made. I’m still awaiting more details.

  5. Unroll A Thread - Like in Twitter!

    I would like the ability to 'unroll' a thread, just like you can in Twitter

    We have many chat threads which debate a topic, and we may want to then roll this up and send in email or save in onenote or use in a word document etc

  6. clear or trashcan recent member chat threads

    Would like the ability to clear a member chat/thread from the Recent listing pane. For example, trashcan the T-Bot recent chat thread. Might be nice to have a trashcan then purge option, with team admin control over the purge option

  8. Thread Headings

    It's very difficult to follow threads and noe which one you are answering, which one you are viewing etc.

    Perhaps allow for headings? Just an idea because even though Slack treat thhreads different (opening up separate tabs) it's very difficult to distinguish in Teams.

  10. Improve system performance by reducing thread usage.

    There's no reason that this one messaging application should run 156+ threads.

  11. Drag drop messages in a channel to string together threads or break them apart

    Sometimes when replying to a thread I accidentally create a new one. It would be great if I didn't have to remove the comment and could just drag it to connect to the correct thread. Or if accidentally replying to a thread pull it out from the thread to create a new thread.

  12. Merge Calls and Chat

    PSTN Calls have a dedicated tab. Merging with "Chats" could be a good thing since they are both a conversation, just a different media. Currently Chats allows IM, Voice, Video, just add PSTN as an option to reach user, and include PSTN-only Users (Outlook contact, dial pad). Would make the GUI simplier.

  13. Enable threading of Connector updates such as Webhooks

    We've just finished building a webhook connector that will be giving us work item updates from our on-prem TFS. This is very exciting, however, every update comes in as a new thread. This is less exciting. We need the ability for, once a work item exists in a thread in the chat, for all work item updates pertaining to that work item to be threaded under that initial message. Otherwise, chaos. Perhaps the ability to arbitrarily define and ID for each webhook message, and when the same ID is re-used, it becones threaded?

  14. Provide non-threaded teams functionality

    Threads are one of the most annoying things about slack, and in teams teams (ugh) they are basically forced on the user.

  16. Supposedly unread messages when thread is open

    When you are viewing a message thread (i.e. it is open in front of you, even you typing a message to it) new messages coming to it will only be marked as read if you open the channel again. In detail:

    1) Have a message thread open in the app. You can also be typing a new message to it.
    2) Somebody else posts a message to the thread.
    3) The channel is now marked as having unread messages (its name being in bold). This is despite you reading the message (it appeared just where you're typing).
    4) The…

  18. Send a thread contents to user who not in team

    In case we want to share the contents in a thread (not all contents in the team) to user who not in the team, we should copy all message in thread.

    Thats not smart way to share the information.

    Could you make thread share function by mail, private message or other way.

  20. Cross Channel Posts: Replies Appear in All Threads

    The new cross-channel posts are great! However, it would be even better if replies in one thread copied over to the thread in the other channel(s). This way, the conversation remains fluid and everyone always has the same information.
