  3. Integrate sms messaging with teams channels

    The job that I have currently uses Microsoft Teams as a way to chat internally with one another. However our job would be made easier if he could have text messaging integrated with a teams channel. For example: Having the ability to input phone numbers into a teams channel and send out a "mass text" using teams, then receiving messages one at time in the channel without each person seeing other messages.

  4. Stop Emails With Every Message Received

    It is annoying and unnecessary to receive an email every single time someone sends a message to me or to a group where I am a member. Please, add a feature so we can choose whether we want to receive emails or not from messages received in the app.

  5. 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.

  8. Allow users to delete threads that have nothing to do with them

    When there are a lot of threads in a feed we should be able to delete old or unnecessary ones as it just fills up the tab with junk.

  11. checkmark

    It would be quite nice if there were a checkmark ( ✓ ) option available to acknowledge someone's message when one doesn't necessarily "like" it. (There are currently six options: thumbs up, heart, laugh, surprised, sad, angry.)

  13. 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.

  15. Reply to students chat using pencil on iPad

    A typical problem we face, that students take pictures of an example they have a problem to solve. For a simpler way to answer, it will be helpful, if when replying to the student the question would be placed on top of a page and the professor could just write the answer either with her/his apple pencil or using her/his keyboard. For Maths & Physics LaTex support would be very helpful, at least at the level of Microsoft Word.

  16. Give the option to select and delete multiple chat messages at once (A multiple select option).

    Having to delete inappropriate messages from students in chat as a teacher is infuriating. Please add the option to select multiple messages as admin so that I don't have to delete them all individually!

  17. Messaging

    I think that there shouldn't be the 'feed' section because it means that you cant see the new messages from piers, and you can only see messages where people have tagged things. A lot of my piers feel the same way and that it is a very annoying trait and downfall of the app MSTeams. I also don't like how you need a code to create teams and that is annoying as well as I cannot create teams between few people, just in our classes. This would be great if this could be fixed in the future :)
