  2. Would you please provide an option in General Settings that lets me default to opening a chat in teams in the expanded box (text options)?

    Would you please provide an option in General Settings that lets me default to opening a chat in teams in the expanded box (text options)?

    I forget to do this and it's annoying for me and my team to have my input broken over multiple chat boxes. I'd rather default to the larger box, we use it more often anyway.

  3. Browse photos in Chat&Teams

    When I get pictures in Chat or in Teams I need to open and close each photo - It is a BIG time consuming

    I want to flip through the pictures. like Microsoft Photos.

  10. Remove people from chats

    So we noticed that the only way to get an unwanted person out of a chat is to have them leave but if the person will not leave there is no way to get them to leave. I think that there needs to be a function where you can remove people from the chat and not have to ask them to do it.

  11. Unique notification sound when you are @'ed in chat

    Can there be an alternate sound notification if someone @ you in chat? With several people talking sometimes, a particular member may not need to be paying attention because they're busy with other work. If someone @user123 the chat will ping a different sound for that person alerting they were specifically mentioned in the conversation so they can weigh in on the subject.

  12. Show me when my contact is free

    As a messaging user.
    Given that I am in the Chat or Teams screen.
    When I hover over a contact's avatar in order to see their details.
    I would like to see "until <time>" where the status says "busy" or "in a meeting" and where an end time is available, so that I know when that contact is next free without having to open Outlook and load that contact's calendar.

    A mockup of the popup is attached.

  13. Ability to Message a Student from Grades View

    When looking at a specific student and what assignments they have completed, I would like to be able to hover over the student's name and access their info so that I can send a message to them without switching screens. That way, I can see what work the student has or has not completed and write an accurate note to them in the chat as to what I should expect to see from them in the next few days. Switching screens back to the main team page and then all the way back to the individual grades page again is…

  15. turn off comments on a post

    I'd like the ability to turn off commenting on a post. For example, yesterday I posted a request for feedback in a team channel. The deadline for providing feedback was last night, but people are still commenting on the post. I'd like to be able to turn off the ability to add new comments to the post.

  16. Expand Announcements by Default / Permanantly

    My students don't realize that they should click "See More" to read an entire announcement. It would be great if the teacher could make it expanded by default so they see all the contents.
