  1. forward messages to sms

    FORWARD MESSAGES (ALL, CERTAIN CHATS, OR ONLY WHEN "@" MENTIONED) VIA SMS TO A CELL NUMBER. I AM A VETERINARY STUDENT AND THE TEACHING HOSPITAL HAS BEEN USING MS TEAMS TO MESSAGE STUDENTS ON THE CLINIC FLOOR VIA OUR CELL PHONES. THE WIFI ISN'T GOOD AND I WOULD RATHER LEAVE MY MOBILE DATA OFF. IF I COULD FORWARD MS TEAMS MESSAGES TO MY PHONE VIA SMS, I COULD SAVE ON DATA CHARGES AND STILL BE RESPONSIVE DURING THE DAY

  3. New way of conversation (Please vote)

    (Use of the link is given at the end of the article)

    By https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/users/2323166872-microsoftuser1,

    It would be great if you add a text to speech option as it is in mobile phones; for the desktop users. It would be convenient as we do not need to type the whole message (especially big) and it would be auto-typed by speaking. It would also be great if it supports many languages and yes, I have 1 more feature in which we can translate the text written in one language to another for eg. Hi in English to any other language or…

  4. Maybe don't let the adminstartor disale the chat

    Just that you can chat with anybody, so the adminstarator wouldn't disable a person's chat

  6. Subscript and Superscript function in chat/post

    For chemistry, it is necessary to use subscript for equations and formulae and superscript for units and powers.
    When I'm trying to explain something like this in the chat, or in the feedback box etc.. it can be very confusing when the numbers are "large".
    This is crucial for effective remote chemistry teaching!

  8. Reply to specific message in Desktop version

    Currently we are able to swipe & reply to a specific message on the mobile app (LOVE IT!) but this feature is not offered for the desktop version (very frustrating, we copy/paste the msg or even use mobile to reply instead).

    Can we please have a "reply to" function at the "3 dots" after the emoticons? Thank you!

  10. Chat

    Please make it possible for kids to message the teacher via chat, but not other kids. It will be VERY helpful for everyone. Thank you!

  11. make it possible to delete a comment

    We need to be able to delete a message especially if we put it in the wrong message to the wrong person. I can't seem to find a feature to delete a message.

  15. Muted messages

    So, I thought of an idea to add an option to make a muted message, above the normal messages, on the message type menu (muted, normal, important etc.). The muted message will act like this:


    1. Muted messages won't notify other users.

    2. The user can add the @ and select notified users.

    3. The group/team host can modify muted messages in the group/team settings.

    Hope you found this idea useful! :)

    Would be very welcomed if we could categorize(filter) the chat between students and colleagues.

  18. There should be an option to reply in chat messages in Windows and web apps.

    There could be an option to double click on beside the messages to reply.

  20. Voice message and replying

    It is possible on the mobile app but on pc app we cant send voice messages also we cant reply to a particular message like we can do in WhatsApp, I know we can quote the message but that is a long process, there should be a shorter way. also, you should integrate private replying
