  3. increase group chat size

    The current group chat limits the number of participants to 19 or so. I would like to see this expanded, as my team is larger than this and we would like to have the ability to have a group chat.

  4. Permissions - add option to reply but not post

    In a channel, it would be great to have the option to let members reply to posts but not start their own posts. As a teacher, this would keep the general channel from getting cluttered and my posts getting buried.

  5. 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.

  6. Manage sticker options by Content Rating

    EDU tenants receive a different sent of stickers from other customers. For example the entertaining Office Drama editable memes are not available in EDU. Microsoft says the provided options are "more relevant to education and friendlier for our younger audiences" which may be true for K-12 but not post secondary audiences. Not to mention business users at EDU customers.

    Teams already has a control for limiting GIFs by a user defined content rating which can be set by user type (one for faculty/staff and one for students). It would make more sense to classify the sticker options and honor that…

  8. 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

  12. 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.

  15. Ignore/Block option

    Maybe a feature could be added where people can ignore or block other students from other teams...teams that they don't belong to?

  16. Add a praise called "The Real MVP"

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

  17. 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

  20. Deleting messages and replys on Group chats/ chats

    I posted a praise which was the kind hearted one on Microsoft Teams to my friends but it accidentally posted on my Spanish class group chat with 37 members. EVERYONE saw this praise and I was so embarrassed!! YOU SHOULD BE ABLE TO DELETE MESSAGES AND REPLY'S ( IF YOU CAN'T TYPE ON THE CHAT BECUASE THE OWNER HAS BLOCKED IT) ON A GROUP CHAT AND CHATS.
