  3. add a delete chat button

    i'ts a really good app... it would be better if the chat itself could be deleted too.. its annoying when someone who dont know texts you and that chat is still there.

  5. Reply directly to a specific post message

    It would be great to be able to reply directly to a specific post message, like in the app. On the PC, you cannot do that. Or maybe there is an option to activate somewhere ? Thank you

  7. Extra reactions / reacts

    Would like to have an implementation of a react system similar to Facebook. In teams, there may be discussion topics such as a recent flood or a team member moving to a new job, thumbing up that message does not convey my intended reaction/response. Being able to sad react a response would be very helpful in this regard.

  8. Make the distinction between "Reply" and "New Post" much clearer

    People seem to overlook the "reply" option frequently and start "new" conversations, and so then the conversation gets fragmented. If you could highlight "Reply" or "Type a new message" more clearly, I think that would help.

  9. move threads

    As owner move a thread that doesn't belong in the current channel to another. As owner I only have the ability to delete a message that another user submits. I understand maybe this could be abused but as a Team owner I can clean up and monitor the channels for accurate messages/threads.

  10. Mute student conversation for large Class Teams

    I have discovered that the ability to Mute Members' Conversations in Class Teams to stop them from posting in chat does not work for large classes (more than around 90 in my testing). Upon clicking 'Mute All' I am told it is 'Unable to mute members at this time'

    This is a bug which needs to be fixed please as we have groups containing large numbers of students and this feature is especially imperative for these large Class Teams.

    Thank you

    I think a praise should be added called "The Real MVP", meaning most valuable player.
