  3. 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.

  4. 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).

  6. An option for clear chat is mandatory.

    There is already a feature to delete messages but that is no enough teams should also have a feature to completely delete a chat
    from both sides and a single side.

  7. Please show notifications of meetings

    Hi
    I am Joe, a student in India who is using Microsoft Teams through my dad's PC for studies. My new suggestion is that, it would be great if you could add a feature like giving notifications by a bot for an upcoming meeting, or a going-on meeting. Some people would always forget that there's a meeting. Many of them had been absent in most meetings, even though when they're online. That's why.

    Signed,

    Joe(a student)

  8. Create a "Turn chat on/off" button that is immediatley accesibile on the presenters screen

    Teachers should be able to start and stop conversations in a teams meeting just like they do in a real classroom, without the delay of navigating multiple menus. That takes too long and ruins the flow, not to mention its tedious.

  10. Support (La)TeX code in code snippets

    In math-, physics-, or chemistry-related conversations, it often proves useful to directly send some LaTeX code. It would be a nice feature to see Microsoft Teams support TeX code, just like many other coding languages, in code snippets.

  11. Introduce delete chat and blocking feature

    Some unknown users keep spamming me with random messages and unfotunately teams doesn't offer any feature to block the user. It would be really helpful if we can block people on teams from sending messages. Also, delete chat feature for deleting complete chats would be a quite convinient feature to delete unwanted chats.

    I hope you consider my suggestion, Thankyou :)

  17. The ability for owners to enable/disable chat for individual members

    When in a general team meeting and chat is disabled for all members, it would be helpful to have the ability for owners (teachers) to have the ability to chat with individual members. Particularly, for students that require more intensive support.

  18. Provide context for chat search results

    When there are search results in chat, it only shows the one single message with the search term. It would be much more useful to be able to jump to that message in the chat and be able to see the surrounding messages in context.

  19. Teachers need the ability to turn off the chat option

    We need to be able to turn off the chat, so students can focus on the lesson. The chat is so distracting, and I cannot manage it.
