    Once support for Windows 10 native notifications is released, users who choose to use Windows notifications will be able to utilize Windows OS specific settings for the length of time to display notifications. Mac does not have an OS specific setting, so will not have the support.

    I don't agree that the having an activity tab and keeping chats and teams as separate tabs is a better solution... There is too much going on there...

    You could accomplish the same thing of those 3 tabs in just one tab... Simplify and eliminate redundant or circuitous UI please!

    I like the favorites function... but one of the nice things about both slack and hipchat, stacking all chats in a single view is: you can always see who is available, and who has messaged you.

    In a single view, you can always see:

    1. All conversations
    2. The "presence indicators" on people (displayed next to each individual's profile picture)
    3. Notification badges (the numerical badge next to the person or channel's picture that indicates how many people are talking to you)

    Right now in Teams, when you are messaging in a team, you cannot see who is available, and you cannot see who is talking to you. You have to click on the chats tab to notice that your boss has messaged you 10 times... In my mind, that's the biggest problem, that users don't know who's around, and who's talking to them

    In combining teams and chats into a single list, you can still have them clearly separated... See images from Slack, Hipchat, or Skype for examples...

    Here's how Slack handles channels / private chats:

    Hipchat is similar:

    Skype's a little different, but still has all conversations living in one place:

    @philip t: this may be a matter of what people are accustomed to... In Slack, you have all chats in a single list, Channels up top (essentially what Teams chats are), and private conversations below. In Skype, likewise you have favorites chats above and other recent chats below. It's simpler having one place where all of your conversations live.

    Out of curiosity, what application have you been using that separates team conversations from direct conversations?

    True, there are minor differences between the teams chats and direct chats... But in terms of navigation and notifications, knowing where to look for messages, I think it makes more sense to have them in the same list. What I am hearing from colleagues right now is that people find it hard to know when they are being messaged in Teams, and where to look for messages. If I get pinged and there are two different alerts badges for messages, thats confusing imho... This is something those other chat apps do better

    Agree... It's too many tabs, and chats and channels are essentially perform the same function, which is talk to some people and collaborate. Forcing the user to check two different lists to see if somebody is messaging them is a really bad experience, it is like having two different chat apps.

    I agree that this makes Teams less usable than Slack or Skype for chat.

    The ability to turn off emojis is still being worked upon.

    Also, there is work to create a compact mode which will also help reduce white space… which in turn will impact some of the complaints are far as wasted space from the emojis as well, that have been voiced in the comments.

    Stay tuned for more details.

    Adding email as a left tab panel remains under review. We are working on adding several Teams and email integrations:

    - Share to Teams: Share a copy of an email and any attachments into a chat or channel directly from Outlook

    - Share to Outlook: Share a copy of a channel or chat conversation via email directly from Teams

    - Actionable Teams Activity Emails: Teams missed activity emails display the latest replies and allow you to reply directly from Outlook

    See this post for more information:

    This item is still under review by the feature team. I have no details as to when a decision might happen.
