  1. Deleting messages and replys on Group chats/ chats

    I posted a praise which was the kind hearted one on Microsoft Teams to my friends but it accidentally posted on my Spanish class group chat with 37 members. EVERYONE saw this praise and I was so embarrassed!! YOU SHOULD BE ABLE TO DELETE MESSAGES AND REPLY'S ( IF YOU CAN'T TYPE ON THE CHAT BECUASE THE OWNER HAS BLOCKED IT) ON A GROUP CHAT AND CHATS.

  4. 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.

  6. Extra reactions / reacts

    Would like to have an implementation of a react system similar to Facebook. In teams, there may be discussion topics such as a recent flood or a team member moving to a new job, thumbing up that message does not convey my intended reaction/response. Being able to sad react a response would be very helpful in this regard.

  13. 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!!!

  14. 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.

  16. 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.

  17. 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).

  19. Ignore/Block option

    Maybe a feature could be added where people can ignore or block other students from other teams...teams that they don't belong to?

  20. 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.
