Change Prompt: this has been completed
Yes - people go crazy creating stuff and we must be able to fix the damage. This was something that was never allowed for in Yammer, making Yammer next to useless.
I expect lots of hi-fives via Twitter for fighting for this one. Coming soon, folks.
I apologize, there had been come miscommunication with regards to this topic.
The good news is that this item has not been declined! It has actually been approved by the feature team and is now “On the Backlog”.
I’ll keep this thread updated as we move through the development.
This request is still being considered by the feature team but a final decision has not yet been made. I’m still awaiting more details.
Timeline is my preference - maybe a "in response to" in order to look at a "thread" if you need to see the history of a particular conversation is good. Yammer suffers horribly from "threads" - don't repeat it here!
Hate to be the bearer of bad news. This item has been declined. There will be no work to hide or remove the reply button.
As many people have commented, a big ask is to help improve how people distinguish between giving a reply and starting a new message.
For that the focus will be on this item. “Better visual delineation between `Reply` and `Start a new conversation`”
The "threads" within channels are awful. It's taken one of the worst bits of Yammer and replicated it in Teams.
We acknowledge the customer demand for Private Channels and have been hard at work on it. Private Channels is currently in preview with a select group of customers. We expect to release the feature to the public later this Fall, and will update here when we are starting to roll out to all customers. We appreciate all the feedback you have provided to us on this forum and thank you for your patience.
Item 1 and 2 are Under Review.
Item 3 has been Completed.
I’ll keep you posted as I hear more on this request.
We’re currently working on defining a compact mode experience. I will post more details when we have more to share.
The desktop app doesn't make good use of screen real estate. On a large monitor, you end up with a narrow column that doesn't get wider to fit the window size, and then of course you get messages that go over multiple lines, when you could have so much more information on the screen at once.
