  1. reply to messages

    much like whatsapp where you can reply to a specific message and that particular message will be quoted alongside the reply. Also the function to reply privately to a message sent in a group setting would be helpful

  2. Teams & Chat: Add more to context menu

    Really tired of copying and pasting formatting into my Teams Chats. Can we get some more choices in the context menu? How about the choices we see in Office 365? or just "Paste as plain text" or "paste w/o formatting."

    Thanks,

    Chris

  3. improve pop out chat

    I'm glad I have a pop out chat option now! But it's terribly implemented. Any time I have to leave what I am working on to go chat (or to go POP OUT a chat) is a hassle.

    Improvements:

    1) Ability to pop out the entire chat function. All of the chats, one window (or pop out of that window), separate from the teams app. Then you don't need a whole bunch of pop out chat windows.

    2) Pop out from banner notification. If I get a chat notification I want to be able to pop it out from the…

  4. Blocking Users

    This feature would give each user a chance to block people who are messaging them. It might be useful for people who are getting spammed. The mute feature silences a chat but I think that it is also necessary to block someone altogether, similar to how it is possible to block someone on WhatsApp.

  5. Delete chat where students post bullying, verbal abuse or profane words or/and phrases

    It will sometimes be necessary to delete chats that students have created. As Teams administrator, we want to be able to delete reported chats that contain bullying, verbal abuse or profane words or/and phrases either in the chat itself or in the chat title. Even in renaming chat titles, system messages will display previously profane words and phrases that need to be deleted

  6. Schedule when your Post appears

    Allow the ability to schedule when a post (or new conversation in Posts) appears similar to how Assignments can be scheduled. This will further help automate daily tasks for teachers.

  7. Thumbs down available on the emoji shortlist panel in chat

    Teams chat is our primary means of communication. We need a thumbs down option in the shortlist attached to comments. We acknowledge that it is available to include in chat, but we need it to be able to respond directly to a message/comment.

  8. Team chat as a popout.

    When I am grading or doing other work on Teams and a student chat message pops up, I would like to quickly read it and come back to the work I was doing, but I have to leave the page to read the chat message. Would it be possible to create a popout chat feature for times when we are working within the Teams platform and don't want to leave our page?

  9. I want an option to delete chats.

    I would really like an option to delete chats. there are some people who I would like to lose all contact with, to have them NEVER text me again. I am confused as to why there no option to do so already. so far I have 4 chats that I wish to delete, and I want to have space for the chats I actually use! The only option is to "hide chats" but as soon as the text again, the chat just reappears! tell me Microsoft, WHAT IS THE POINT OF THAT? I look forwards to seeing this option added.…

  10. 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.

  12. Add an option to meetings to allow people to remain in chat when joining by link

    In response to

    "Microsoft Teams: Update to meeting participant's access to meeting chat

    When a person joins a meeting using a link, such as created by Outlook or their LMS, the person only has access to the chat for as long as they are active in the meeting. Once they leave the meeting, they are also removed from the chat.

    This was a significant change to spring on us. We were using the old behavior to build communities. We would post the link to a weekly hour-long recurring meeting, open to all faculty. Those that were interested…

  15. allow more emoji as reactons

    It would be handy to have a full set of emoji to use as reactions to messages, as the limited set provides limited options for expressing our reaction to a message.

  16. Question mark

    On message reactions you should have a question mark reaction so if someone does not get what something means they can react with the question mark so other people know that they don't understand. That is why I think we should have a question mark reaction.

  17. Message pop up in front of student

    A way to send a message to the student but not in the chat box. For it to pop up in front of them. Sometimes we need for kinder kids to click on a link, but they have a hard time locating chat box. Or we might need to grab the attention of a child through a private message that pops in front of them right away.

  18. Seperate private chats from teams meeting chats

    Currently the chat shows all chats from private messages and teams meeting chats. The only options right now are to show recent, contacts, and filter by name. Can there be an option to filter direct contact chats from the teams meeting chats. or have them as a separate tab such as teams meetings tab and the chat tab.

  20. 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.
