ya this kind of sucks. The little topical replying is a neat idea but it's too "strong".. and causes for such a big mess in the rooms. And the Activity view is really hard to follow it seems. We frequently lose sight of what someone posted. Again, compare to Slack for usability. It's way easier to visually see what activity is happening there.

This feature item is still in the works. We will keep you posted as we have new info from the feature team.
Same as for other issues. Do what Slack does. :) In the minimum. Then go beyond. Maybe you guys should all become USERS of Teams.. it seems like you're not or these things would naturally come up internally. If you want to connect with someone (and you do it often) you should be able to have their name listed right there (again, just like Slack). And there is another effort to put Chat and Channels in the same entity.. that would go along perfectly so there isn't this other separation.. again, like Slack.
And as usual, stop worry about why customers would want to do this. Expect customers to use your product in ways you never thought and just make them possible.
And at the same time, showing presence would be nice. By the way, the presence aside from possibly showing when they are in a meeting, should default to showing a user as away if there is no keyboard or mouse activity for some amount of time, rather than just showing them in the chat app.
As stated in the last update, the ability to use multiple Teams accounts at the same time is being implemented in stages for Desktop. Faster tenant switching functionality on the Windows client has been rolled out to the public ring fully, and Mac will begin rolling out soon. Work is in progress on cross-tenant notification improvements, and support for multiple accounts on desktop will follow. We’ll keep you posted!
Note: The ability to use multiple Teams accounts at the same time is supported on iOS & Android today.
Alex & the Teams team
Do what Slack does. :) You can be logged into however many "teams" you want. And again, why are you asking what kind of work that would require that? It's not for Microsoft to understand why customers would want to do something. It's a feature that is being requested. And it's also a feature that is currently handled by all the main competitors like Slack and Google Hangouts.
The comments thus far seem to touch in a couple of different definitions of this ticket.. some about you being involved in multiple "tenants" (which I guess would translate into multiple Office 365 business accounts) and some that are talking about having external parties connected (not included in the tenant's Office 365 account).. but both are legit and necessary and both are supported by Slack.
This is like Slack's ability to very easily let the user be on different "teams" or "companies" at the same time. Unfortunately with MS confusing terms of a generic "Team" and all this, that's going to be harder to explain, but having multiple O365 "Accounts" I guess is missing.
The feature team is still reviewing, there is lots of discussion about this item and I hope to have a decision soon.
#1 - There are a lot of much easier things requested that are needed to make Teams more complete.
#2 - Adding some simple Email functionality would be huge though, eliminating the need to have Outlook web (which is awful) open, or Outlook desktop for those people who don't need a heavy mail client. Imagine.. they basically just do everything within Teams. Pretty slick!
This feature request has moved to the planning stage. There have also been several small updates that have gone out already, as well.
I’ll keep you posted as I hear more about coming updates.
Yes this is extremely useful when you want to take a quick note for yourself, and jump onto another computer or phone or whatever and see the text right there.
Hey multi-taskers, we’ve put this into planning. If you’d like to be a test driver of this feature, just sign up here: https://1drv.ms/xs/s!AryUNzh1ogZzif8pDcOcx2pW45I87w
