  6. Try removing the unmute button from the control for kids... always keep them on mute, let the teachers choose.

    Please stop the children having the control to kick someone out and mute others. Let the teachers have the control, and please let the attendees chat in the chatbox. Someone keeps stopping attendees to message in the chatbox.

  7. Contact/available list

    It would be helpful to have a contact list separate from the chats, like a small tab to be open on desktop. We would be able to see who is online and available to contact at a glance instead of fishing.

  8. 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.

  9. Ability to Copy Conversations

    When trying to copy and paste a conversation from the desktop app (in Windows) or web (Chrome) I have to copy individual lines. I am not able to highlight and copy the entire conversation.

  11. "SEEN"

    Hi Team,

    I think that you should add "seen" word in the end of the last messenger as the signal to show everyone know if it has been read. :)

    Thanks

  12. make it so that we can reply to specific mesages on the team chat

    make it so that we can reply to specific messages on the team chat. when multiple people are asking and answering questions in the chat it can get confusing. this is similar to reply features on Facebook messenger and whatsapp group chats.

  14. The ability for owners to enable/disable chat for individual members

    When in a general team meeting and chat is disabled for all members, it would be helpful to have the ability for owners (teachers) to have the ability to chat with individual members. Particularly, for students that require more intensive support.

  15. Provide customisable selection of emojis in chat so meeting owner can identify the list that appears in the quick access list

    It would be extremely helpful to add some additional (boring!) emojis - e.g. A, B, C, D, E - or just coloured circles - or best - different coloured circles with A, B, C, D, E etc in them...This would mean we could use chat to run really quick polls when giving presentations (please note I know Forms and the chat Forms bot exist - but neither one quite cuts it...it would also be amazing if we could pre-create single questions using the Forms bot and launch them in chat at the appropriate time).

  17. Post a voice message in desktop Teams

    The ability to post a voice message in the computer app is very helpful. The mobile app has this feature, but I do not see any reason that the desktop app cannot have such a feature.

  19. Replying to/Forwarding a specific comment in the chat window (Mac OS desktop app)

    The iOS version of Teams have the feature to Reply to a specific comment in any chat window, just like you do on other chat apps like WhatsApp. However, the desktop application of Teams on Mac lacks that feature. Could you give us the same contextual menu that shows those options when selecting a comment along with the existing options in the ••• menu? Pleeease!!!
