  2. create a means to send one message to multiple teams

    I would like to send one message to all of my teams. It would make communication quicker for me as the teacher

  3. 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?

  5. implement more emoji reactions for messages.

    rather than using a "laugh" or "like" or "angry" reaction, adding more emojis like a facepalm would be good to better express emotion. a question mark reaction would also be excellent.

  6. add an option to mute all chats, especially when the user is presenting using Teams.

    Although we can mute chats individually, it's hard to predict who may message you during a meeting or presentation. If, during presentation (full screen mode) or a video conference, all chats were muted, that would be very helpful. (And of course, make sure that feature is something people can toggle on/off.)

  7. allow users to respond to specific posts also in two-person chats.

    In chats with more than two persons, you can respond to individual posts, such that you have parallel conversation threads. Very useful.

    I miss that feature in individual chats. Often, I converse with individual colleagues about several issues at the same time, and I have to open each of my responses, however short they are, with "Re. topic XYZ", instead of just being able to reply directly to their relevant previous post. Being able to do that would be really helpful.

  13. Ability to toggle e-mail notifications for certain groups/people

    I love the e-mail notifications feature when I am on the go and not at my desktop. I don't have Teams on my phone (This helps with my work-life balance!), but it is nice to see when I have a message waiting for me.

    However, I would prefer to only receive notification e-mails when I am direct messaged by a colleague, and not from group chats. Group chats get a lot of messages, and the e-mail notifications are too numerous. Being able to toggle e-mail notifications on and off for specific people/groups would be a very helpful feature!

  17. Disable the chat

    As an elementary teacher, it would be incredibly helpful for the chat feature to be able to be completely disabled. They are not old enough yet to properly use the chat, and it is extremely distracting to themselves and to others when they chat is firing off nonstop.

  20. Create a folder function for private chats. It's difficult to navigate through a huge list of private chats. I'd like to organise them
