  1. reply to messages

    much like whatsapp where you can reply to a specific message and that particular message will be quoted alongside the reply. Also the function to reply privately to a message sent in a group setting would be helpful

    Thank you for your patience. We are thrilled to that replying to a chat message in the desktop client is now available as part of our Public Preview. It is expected to roll out to the public ring over the next several weeks.

    Please see feature details here: https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/microsoft-teams-public-preview/now-in-public-preview-quoted-reply-for-desktop-web-coming-soon/td-p/2761594

    For details on switching to the Microsoft Teams Public Preview version, please see : https://aka.ms/TeamsPublicPreview.

    We look forward to your preview feedback!

  2. Supervised Chat - non-restricted users should only be able to delete chats for restricted users

    For supervised chat, non-restricted users should only be able to delete chats for those in the restricted group. OR there needs to be another solution that would give more control over specific content that is able to be deleted.

    The concern is such that if non-restricted users can just delete chats for anyone, this would allow employees to delete chats in times when they shouldn't. Example of this would be employee deleting directives/messages from a manager. Even this ability being there would affect the confidence that management would have on teams messaging being a valid tool for communicating to their…

  3. Teams & Chat: Add more to context menu

    Really tired of copying and pasting formatting into my Teams Chats. Can we get some more choices in the context menu? How about the choices we see in Office 365? or just "Paste as plain text" or "paste w/o formatting."

    Thanks,

    Chris

  4. improve pop out chat

    I'm glad I have a pop out chat option now! But it's terribly implemented. Any time I have to leave what I am working on to go chat (or to go POP OUT a chat) is a hassle.

    Improvements:

    1) Ability to pop out the entire chat function. All of the chats, one window (or pop out of that window), separate from the teams app. Then you don't need a whole bunch of pop out chat windows.

    2) Pop out from banner notification. If I get a chat notification I want to be able to pop it out from the…

  5. Anytime Typing

    while talking in teams chat whenever the chat typing bar is not selected it does not type anything, So the person has to click on it and then type. So it takes a lot of time. Improvement - when the person clicks on the chat tab he can start typing on the chat without having to click on the text bar just like in discord

  6. Blocking Users

    This feature would give each user a chance to block people who are messaging them. It might be useful for people who are getting spammed. The mute feature silences a chat but I think that it is also necessary to block someone altogether, similar to how it is possible to block someone on WhatsApp.

  7. Delete chat where students post bullying, verbal abuse or profane words or/and phrases

    It will sometimes be necessary to delete chats that students have created. As Teams administrator, we want to be able to delete reported chats that contain bullying, verbal abuse or profane words or/and phrases either in the chat itself or in the chat title. Even in renaming chat titles, system messages will display previously profane words and phrases that need to be deleted

  8. Schedule when your Post appears

    Allow the ability to schedule when a post (or new conversation in Posts) appears similar to how Assignments can be scheduled. This will further help automate daily tasks for teachers.

  10. Thumbs down available on the emoji shortlist panel in chat

    Teams chat is our primary means of communication. We need a thumbs down option in the shortlist attached to comments. We acknowledge that it is available to include in chat, but we need it to be able to respond directly to a message/comment.

  12. Team chat as a popout.

    When I am grading or doing other work on Teams and a student chat message pops up, I would like to quickly read it and come back to the work I was doing, but I have to leave the page to read the chat message. Would it be possible to create a popout chat feature for times when we are working within the Teams platform and don't want to leave our page?

  14. I want an option to delete chats.

    I would really like an option to delete chats. there are some people who I would like to lose all contact with, to have them NEVER text me again. I am confused as to why there no option to do so already. so far I have 4 chats that I wish to delete, and I want to have space for the chats I actually use! The only option is to "hide chats" but as soon as the text again, the chat just reappears! tell me Microsoft, WHAT IS THE POINT OF THAT? I look forwards to seeing this option added.…

  15. Add reactions

    We can add reactions to a message (more than 1 reactions to a message) and we can use any emoji. The same goes to the reactions in a meeting. And can we have more skin colours?

  16. Thumbs Down/Dislike Reaction

    Add a thumbs down/dislike reaction for messaging. The angry and sad emoticons often aren't appropriate for expressing disapproval. A thumbs down or dislike reaction would be more useful for professional, academic, and recreational conversation.

  20. Group Chat Improvements

    1. Ability to change group chat icon so that educators can add school logo.

    2. Ability to pin group chat to the top for mobile phones as well currently its available only for desktop apps.

    3. Ability to pin specific message to the top in a group chat.

    4. Ability to see the names of members who have seen the specific message in a group so that it becomes really handy for educators to know whether their messages have been seen by students or not.

    5. More control to the Group Message admin so that they can allow / disable members to send message at…
