  3. With teachers in mind now.. and for everybody to organise corespondation. Provide a way to group messages on chats.

    A teacher has a problem to respond on all chats on group of students who sent projects and works and find only them.
    Between 8 am - 9:30 am he must do it all.
    It's issue of searching, waisting time and avoiding mess.
    They have 100 maybe 150 students and some number of groups. It's a lot of messages.
    No one remember all surnames and album numberes.
    I think that will be simply and fabulous and less stressful for everyone.

  4. View all hidden chats/direct messages

    I think it would be great if you added a feature to the chats tab that will allow us to view all of the chats we have selected 'hide' on. It's hard to find them once I, for example, accidentally clicked hide, especially on a group chat.

  6. Deleting Messages

    There should be an option to edit or delete messages incase of a mistake. If a message is reported and edited, the report should include the unedited version, This should go for in chat and on team chat channels.

  13. Make Notifications for Messages less intrusive

    When lot's of people are writing messages in class, I can't see the text field any more because all the pop ups block vision of what I'm writing. Also the beeps are a little to annoying for me. Maybe have only one notification for a channel that something is new but not a notification for each very message.

  16. Getting Teams 1:1 Chat Messages per E-Mail

    It would be nice, to have the possibility to get 1:1 Chat Messages per E-Mail (like Teams Messages I get per E-Mail). That would be helpful. Thank you!

  17. Old Chats and Deleting

    I feel like students should get the chance to delete old chats or people they haven't gotten in touch with over the months because...


    1. Their classes change during the 2nd quarter of the school year and they won't be in touch with their old teachers

    and


    1. It takes up space. They'll have new teachers they can communicate with, instead of relying on the old ones, and this gives them the opportunity to delete chats in which they haven't interacted with over a month

  18. IMPORTANT : please read my suggestion, please add the reply feature to the desktop app because it is only there in the mobile app

    If you are wondering where you can put that feature, you can put it in the details list of the message.

  20. Message layout option

    It'd be nice to be able to opt out of the floating messages and force messages into chat format.

    At the least it'd be nice to select not to collapse single messages (prevent "read more").
