    I really like the suggestion of creating an alarm on a message, so you come back to it. I’ve passed this on to our engineering team.

    Meanwhile, here’s another feature you can utilize for the same purpose — use our “bookmark” button, which is in the upper right corner of every message. This will save that message or thread directly to your profile. To access your saved messages, just click your face in the upper left corner of the product. You’ll see a tab in the left rail that says “Saved.” This is like a list of little reminders.

    Hope that helps! :-)

    @Ilia P the Remind bot looks like a nice option - if it were not blocked by our organization due to privacy concerns.
    This really needs to be addressed by the Teams developers. Outlook allows me multiple ways to keep track of things: leave message in Inbox, flag with or w/o reminders, move to a "follow up" folder, etc. None of that exists in Teams. Even the "Saved" option is buried 2 levels down so if you don't go there intentionally in regular intervals, stuff just gets lost.
    We're only a few weeks into Teams, and I'm constantly getting chats and mentions where people remind me that I was supposed to look at something / do something.

    Either make Saved messages easily accessible OR provide the ability to create a Task (in To Do) from them. It's too easy to forget messages that require an action.

    I'm looking for a solution of the reverse issue: When I share a file in a chat, it can give a user access who normally wouldn't have access to the file, e.g. because of the file being stored in a team that user doesn't belong to. This allows to collaborate on a file temporarily.
    What I need is the ability to stop sharing the file with that user, without having to go to OneDrive Online, find the file, and revoke access to that file for that user. If multiple files were shared, that becomes an ordeal.
    Ideally, I delete the files from the chat, which won't delete the files but just the access link and return the permissions to those valid for the files location.

    Not having this is a major hurdle to move conversations from Outlook to Teams (where they should be). In Outlook, I use some keyboard macros to flag emails for follow-up with different levels of urgency. In Messages, there's really nothing comparable. While the Planner works for Channel discussions, there's nothing to keep track of Post happening outside of a Team.

    The fact that, inexplicably, selection of multiple items isn't supported in this control is compounded by two other, non-standard behaviors:
    1. The file selection dialog can't be moved, so if you want to check which files you already attached, you have to close the dialog
    2. The control doesn't remember the last folder visited. For every new file, you have to start at the OneDrive root and navigate down to the folder containing the relevant files.

    The small number of votes suggests that not many people actually use this feature in Teams. Either because they don't know about or understand it, or because it's just too inconvenient.

    I agree that it would be extremely helpful to have a landing page, ideally for a Team but at minimum for a Channel. Posts are not necessarily the most important part of a channel, it may be News, a Project timeline, added files, etc. If nothing else, make the SharePoint site the default if existing. That would allow featuring the most important information for a Channel.
