  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.

  3. Delete own message in chat box

    It would be nice to be able to edit and delete a chat message (in case you notice a grammatical error or message the wrong person/group)

  4. 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. I would like a way to schedule "work hours" using the availability/away message features that already exist

    I know that I can manually change my status so that I do not receive notifications and messages from students at all hours of the night, but would appreciate being able to set that to automatically start and stop at designated times. I also like the auto response option (though I haven't used it yet), but it seems like there should be a way to incorporate that to automatically generate a response when a student sends a message outside of school hours (reminding them that they might not get an immediate answer) without having to set that message and length…

  7. Restrict PRIVATE chat between students

    My students are privately chatting each other and it has created bullying and harassment situations. Not to mention they are constantly chatting while in class (but since it's in private messaging there's nothing I can do).

    PLEASE restrict private chats between students. It's a safety issue.

  10. Profile Pictures for Groupchats

    For group chats on teams, it will be very useful to have profile pictures since it is easier for students and staff to distinguish between the multiple chats.

  12. 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.

  14. Input Chat

    As a student, it is an inconvenience to have the chat pop up separately from the meeting when using the Teams App. Often times I have to split my screen making it harder to see the actual call. Instead, it would be nice if the chat could pop up off to the side while still being attached to the tab of the meeting as it appears on teacher´s screens.

  16. There should be a feature to delete a chat instead of hiding it.........

    Sometimes you require to delete the messages sent by someone.. So there should be an option to delete a chat just as it is on social networking sites......

  17. I would like a confused reaction added.

    When you hover over a message on Teams, a list of reactions pops up. Sometimes, I am confused about a message. I would appreciate it if a confused reaction was added to that list.
