Size of the post in Teams Channel covering the screen section. No collapse option !!!?
In most of posts (in channels) there is option to collapse the flow of replies, etc. BUT when the original post size alone is huge (just met a 7 cm, cca 3 inch) it is almost covering the entire section of screen, and I have no option to collapse it!!!
I want to minimize it to a one single row title kind of look, despite my colleague added a huge tile of "FORMS" , long link, text, etc.
I suggest to introduce new settings possibilities, how to display all the posts inside a channel (or as a main setting), to keep the huge info flow digestable, scrollable, searchable.
Would be great to introduce minimal-small-medium-large-extralarge collapsed-size of posts.
(just like in "File Explorer Folder Views" you can set how to display the content of a folder. Simple List, tiles, large tiles, even sorted by date!!!!!! The Collapse to MINIMAL could mean to collapse all posts within a channel and show only year/month/week folder structure. Then I would expand as needed - g.e. to review a certain period of time (g.e. coming back after longer holidays, or if need to review last years's all inputs during a specific project timing which took place between 2018 January-March), etc.
I strongly believe that we loose so much efficiency if we use an endless flow of large size posts to scroll, scroll, scroll, scroll...... (the date-stamp is not at all highlighted :-(
To enable such an effective usage of teams, I suggest to introduce a new field called TITLE of the post. (with limited nr of characters - to only allow the essence of the message - just few keywords, or 1 short sentence.) The body of the post surely shall contain the usual blabla ... but to be properly collapsed, when user needs efficient and good, quick overview of that channel's events.
Design shall never kill usability of tools!
Each year our lives and info flow are speeding up exponentially, we cannot afford efficiency loss.
Thank you !
