  1. 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.

  4. Contact/available list

    It would be helpful to have a contact list separate from the chats, like a small tab to be open on desktop. We would be able to see who is online and available to contact at a glance instead of fishing.

  5. 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

  6. 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?

  8. make it so that we can reply to specific mesages on the team chat

    make it so that we can reply to specific messages on the team chat. when multiple people are asking and answering questions in the chat it can get confusing. this is similar to reply features on Facebook messenger and whatsapp group chats.

  9. Try removing the unmute button from the control for kids... always keep them on mute, let the teachers choose.

    Please stop the children having the control to kick someone out and mute others. Let the teachers have the control, and please let the attendees chat in the chatbox. Someone keeps stopping attendees to message in the chatbox.

  10. deleting messages

    being able to delete messages you type would be good, for example if you have a huuge typo or say the completely wrong thing or if you say something you didn't mean that could hurt someones feelings, there are a loot of reasons why just I wish you could easily delete messages but only ones you post.

  11. Ability to Copy Conversations

    When trying to copy and paste a conversation from the desktop app (in Windows) or web (Chrome) I have to copy individual lines. I am not able to highlight and copy the entire conversation.

  13. "SEEN"

    Hi Team,

    I think that you should add "seen" word in the end of the last messenger as the signal to show everyone know if it has been read. :)

    Thanks

  15. Provide customisable selection of emojis in chat so meeting owner can identify the list that appears in the quick access list

    It would be extremely helpful to add some additional (boring!) emojis - e.g. A, B, C, D, E - or just coloured circles - or best - different coloured circles with A, B, C, D, E etc in them...This would mean we could use chat to run really quick polls when giving presentations (please note I know Forms and the chat Forms bot exist - but neither one quite cuts it...it would also be amazing if we could pre-create single questions using the Forms bot and launch them in chat at the appropriate time).

  16. See the meeting chat and the shared screen at the same time on iPad

    It would be great if we can see the meeting chats and the shared screen at the same time on iPad, just like on the computer

  18. Post a voice message in desktop Teams

    The ability to post a voice message in the computer app is very helpful. The mobile app has this feature, but I do not see any reason that the desktop app cannot have such a feature.

  19. Replying to/Forwarding a specific comment in the chat window (Mac OS desktop app)

    The iOS version of Teams have the feature to Reply to a specific comment in any chat window, just like you do on other chat apps like WhatsApp. However, the desktop application of Teams on Mac lacks that feature. Could you give us the same contextual menu that shows those options when selecting a comment along with the existing options in the ••• menu? Pleeease!!!

  20. channel email alias

    Please provide admins with the ability to add a user friendly smtp alias to a team channel. The default channel email address is too long and contains random characters that are confusing. We need this for printed flyers, etc where the recipient (parents in this case, K-12 school district) can have a user friendly email to type and send to.
