  1. Make new messages standout

    I would like the new messages to show up separate from the stream of messages that never delete and are always in view. This makes it very cluttered and hard to easily recognize where the new message is. Can older chats go in one tab and then new messages show in an inbox tab until you view them and then they return to the archived tab?

    The clutter makes it hard to see which chats have new messages in them and scrolling through all are time consuming. Also archive would be better then keeping them in the chat screen.

  2. Add option for text-to-voice speaking aloud of chat messages

    Add an option to have a specific chat message spoken aloud into the audio stream using a text-to-speech program. This could be from the chat sidebar, or from a separate entry. I am a deaf user, who makes great use of the Live Captions and Transcription feature, but this is currently one-way only and I have great difficulty participating in conversations. I usually have a co-worker voice my chat messages aloud, or schedule a relay interpreter with its own difficulties. Having the ability to voice for myself would give me improved involvement with teams meetings.

    Aside from the use case…

  3. Create headers for chats like Skype could

    Would be nice if we could pin chats to specific headers. For example, if I wanted to have a header for a specific group of people, I could put them under that, including group chats. And then I could have a different group with other people in it.

    With skype we used to be able to do this, but the functionality is gone with teams.

  6. Implement hashtags in Teams and Outlook

    Request hashtags (#) be implemented into MS Teams and Outlook. GCC does not have access to yammer and hashtags would allow users and teams to categorize and find information more efficiently.

  7. Group photos and colors

    It would be nice to have the option to have a group photo selection/choice to recognize quicker which group you are chatting to. It would also be awesome to be able to have more coloured background/image options other than standard that individuals can pick for their own chats

  8. Hide from Address Book

    Hi,

    Please add an option to hide an address from the Address Book of Teams so no other users can see this user or call or email because if you have Ministers and VIP teams you don't want any other user to reach them.

    Another way is to customize so Only specific users can see the hidden user.

    Thanks,
    Jassim

  10. Don't save chat history

    Provide an option to allow a user to not save chat history at all, as is currently available in Skype.

    Need a better UI design for Chat Channels - It is too confusing and non-intuitive to find active unread chats in Teams; Slack has a superior UI for doing this

    Need multiple emoji responses for a message as in Slack
    It is very useful to be able to reply to a message with a combination of emojis; One emoji is not always sufficient to convey the appropriate subtlety of meaning; multiple emojis enable a speedy but nuanced response to a chat message without having to type a long response.

    Add the possibility to forward an Outlook email to a Teams "Team" or "Channel".

    For example - in Outlook open the email and click "Forward to Team "@xxxxxxx" or Foward to Channel "@xxxxx".

    And then Teams would open up a new Window for that Team or Channel and show that email message in the new message box with the ability for the email message to be added to before completing the message send within Teams.

  16. Reduce clutter in chat view

    The chat view gets completely cluttered with calendar event topics that I would like to hide. Perhaps they should only appear in the calendar view.

  17. seperate contacts window

    I miss skype. I miss being able to just access a contact list, click on their name and see a chat window to talk to them.
    And to be able to keep that chat window open and still see my contact list so that I can monitor friends and buddies and easily see when someone is available.

    Can you please make teams behave like the long history of chat applications have from AIM to SKYPE and everything in between?

    I get that there are other features that are useful, but having to navigate through them just to use the chat…

  18. Add More Dancing Emojis

    The current group (tree, monkey, turkey and "Travolta guy") of dancing emojis are good, but can you add another emoji of a guy or girl performing the "Carlton Dance"? See the TV show, "The Fresh Prince of Bel Air" for inspiration. :-)
