  1. Archive previous threads on a Tab inside the Channel

    Would be nice to have a tab inside the Channel itself to store previous threads in order to keep a record of old stuff.

    This would be helpful to keep the Channel clean and to provide better sight of active/pending threads.

  2. devops Connectors thread PR updates

    It would be great to have the PR creation / updates all go into the same thread in Teams. Then we can collect all the comments and updates in one place.

  3. Conversation thread jumps up to earlier in the timeline when inserting a link

    When I post a link to the general chat, the chat thread jumps up to somewhere earlier in the timeline. This happens as soon as I post the link in the chat window, not when I post the comment. This happens only in new threads, not replies to existing threads, and only if there is a link in the thread. I am not able to see any particular place where the thread ends up, it seems to be about halfway up the thread, but other than that not figuring out any reason why it jumps. Not…

  4. Add user setting to NOT collapse message threads as default

    Our users spend way too much time trying to find previous posts that are hidden because they've been automatically collapsed.

    Like in Slack, it is much better if by default, no message threads are collapsed.

    In user settings, have a setting to "Collapse threads as default" - ON or OFF.

    Attached screenshot shows collapsed thread which HIDES info we often are looking for - such a waste of time and very frustrating.

  5. Call merging - come on, it's a basic feature!

    On a call when another person calls me. I answer (putting the original call on hold) but then want to be able to merge the two calls.

    I could do it in SfB but can't in Teams - seriously??!!

  6. Option to move thread in messaging to a different channel

    You have started a conversation and then realise this belongs to a different channel and would like to move this thread -

    It would be nice if we can move or transfer a thread to a different channel within a team

  7. threaded conversations in chats

    can we get threaded conversations in chats? i see a lot of folks gripe about the threaded conversations in teams and about the "reply" button, but these seems more to be complaints about notifications and being able to see new conversations together with new replies to conversations.

    Threaded conversations are really useful and it would be nice to be able to have these in chats, especially chat groups where several conversations can go on at the same time.

  8. Merge teams to prevent multiple teams with the same purpose

    People will start a team if they cannot find some team that match their needs. However, when they actually find a team that is similar afterwards, I can imagine that like to merge.

  9. Add link to originating thread in the "Files" tab

    When adding files in a normal messaging thread in a team it will be put to the "Files" section automatically which is great.

    I would also like to have the other way round. So when I see the file in "Files" I have a link to the thread where it was posted.

  10. Allow "Do Not Disturb" or "Hide Alerts" for certain threads in a channel

    In the More Options menu inside any channel, on any thread, can we get a "Hide Alerts" option for that particular thread? I know there are conversations I do not need to be bothered with and I'd like to shut notifications off for those particular threads. "Hide Alerts" "Do not disturb" something like that. I'd still like to get notifications from the channel for other threads that have not turned this option "ON" as they come in. Thank you.

  11. Less like Chat, more like Threads

    People don't really use the reply in Chat very much. So when everyone is creating a new conversation there are a ton of UI elements all over the place making the whole window very cluttered.

    I'd suggest adding a Subject Line to the conversation so that there is a quick summary though for the thread.

    Then it would be nice to be able to click into that thread so you don't see all of the other chats.

    try this instead  ·  Suphatra responded

    We actually do have a subject line.

    If you click the little pencil in your text field, the text field will expand and you can write a title for your message.

  12. Delete Threads

    Hi,

    I think Admins have to have a right to "purify" their channels and remove some conversations completely, for example accidental New messages instead of replies to existing threads. Also for example some already solved questions which does not need to stay there. Currently we can only remove own messages, but as an admin i would like to have an option to clean up the channel as i would like to.

  13. Create Planner item from Thread

    It would be great if there was an easy way to take a thread, and turn it into an item on a Tab, such as Planner. Where we are building a 'helpdesk' team channel with our tickets pouring there (please also see my threading of connector webhook updates request) it would be great to be able to pull the threads into planner and keep track of them there. It would also be great if planner updates would then reflect back to the channel, and where the planner items being updated were created from threads, said updates…

  14. Request for design change: All posts for a thread to be visible

    All conversations for a thread cannot be read unless we click [See more]. Then, posted conversation for a thread are collapsed and they are not visible whole message in Microsoft Teams.

    This limited function would let us oversee important posts.

    We would request you to implement a function that all conversations for a thread would be visible or today’s posts would be expanded.

  15. Ability to merge a stray response into a conversation of a channel

    Many users have a tendency to start a new conversation instead of clicking on reply to an existing conversation.channel admin should be able to merge these together.

  16. Create a Private Chat from a Teams Thread

    When using Microsoft Teams, and you have a "Team" created and you are having a conversation in a channel. Sometimes you may want to break out a thread into a private chat with the involved members that have commented or named.

    This would be really useful to do, click the ... on the thread options and then an option to break out into a private chat

  17. Merge top bars in Word, Excel, PowerPoint, etc.

    There are three bars displaying the same content with three different functionalities when opening office docs such as a word document. This takes up unnecessary space, breaks up the clean UI and the three different functionalities don't make for a great UX. Please merge these bars into one.

  18. Show how many people read a thread

    We use MS teams as communication channels. It's important for the publisher of the thread to know how many of the team members have actually read it so that the publisher knows to what extent the info is spread.

    At the moment one can 'like' it or 'reply' it, but people might just only read it without replying or liking it. So it would be great to have an indication on how many actually read this thread or not.

  19. Threads in private message

    I get a bunch of questions from customer service specialist via private messages.

    Instead of answering them one by one as a thread, I have to put my answers as one big punch and that causes three major problems:

    1) I cannot track to which questions I have already answered
    2) Customer Service Specialist cannot pinpoint my answer to a question
    3) I cannot track additional extra questions to a specific question because the conversation of that particular subject has no thread-like-structure.

    --

    If I answer to a question after a day or two, Customer Service is totally…

  20. Merge two conference calls/meetings into one

    Usually when we dial into a conference call meeting, it requires us to input extension number, meeting room numbers or etc. So when I want to combine two meeting into one, I can merge calls in Skype for Business, but cannot find the same feature in Teams. Is there any roadmap to add this feature back to Teams?
