So happy to share that this is off the backlog and we are actively working on it!
This feature is still on the backlog.
Thanks for following our suggestion to vote this up on SharePoint. It worked! SharePoint has confirmed that they have already started working on this and I’ll be getting an ETA from them after the holidays. -Suphatra
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`”
This request is still working its way through the backlog. Nothing additional to report yet.

This feature request is still being actively worked upon. Good progress is being made, but I cannot share any additional details at this time.
While we work on our Whiteboard you can also try the third party whiteboard app Freehand by Invision that can be found by clicking the Store icon from within Teams and go to the app gallery.
Thank you for all the feedback and suggestions.
And please make sure that the white board is simply an overlay for anything shared in Teams, like marking up screen sharing, and then saving it,
Hi Everyone – thank you for your patience. As was commented by someone below, Suphatra is no longer at Microsoft, but rest assured we are working on this feature.
This feature request is still on in the backlog. No new updates available at this time.
This feature item is still in the works. Unfortunately I don’t have any additional details to share. I will keep you posted as I hear new info from the feature team.
Thanks to those of you who participated in the session with our user research team. We are continuing to work on this important feature, and will update you as we get closer to completing. ~ Alex
Adding a reverse comment, we have clients that also use Office 365. While for most of what we're doing, we expect them to participate in a collaborative environment hosted in our tenant, if they like the product, I could see them implementing it in their tenant. Then, when they ask us to participate as a sponsor or collaborate in an area in which they're working, this would also allow us to view their Teams in which we'd participate with them.
Offering that kind of fluidity in collaboration would be extremely helpful.
I agree this would be a great feature. We use a contractor for sys admin functions, and he has an O365 account, but is rarely logged into it, because going back and forth is painful. If he could log in for us, and for our other clients, it would improve communication and collaboration.
Even better, would be if he could log in with his ONE business email address, and it would act as an alias to all participating tenants, and Teams would load all tenant teams in which he participates.
Thank you for this feedback! Fortunately, this feature already exists. Just drag and drop items in the order you desire.
Let me know if you have any more questions on this!
@PlannerTeam please also include the functions you have already given us in Planner, and visible from the Planner web app. I want to be able to see a Planner Hub with graphs. I want too be able to attach files, links and comments. I don't want a Planner Lite as part of Teams; I want the full functionality -- and I am desperately waiting for the ability to add external users for collaboration. I know that is dependent on that happening in Office 365 Groups, but the sooner the better.
I'd love for Teams to be the hub for Office 365 Groups, but it has a ways to go. Let's not remove Planner features in the process. Please. Thanks!
I kinda like the idea -- but then in the Planner UserVoice I was also voting to have multiple plans per Group, and this would prevent that.
Thanks for the feedback.
We are considering a number of ways to better integrate experiences across Teams, Outlook, and other apps. However, we don’t have any specifics to share on this request.
This feature request is working its way through the backlog queue. No new details are available yet.
This is one reason I have been very slow to really roll anything out to our users. I have been watching O365 Groups continue to grow, and I think that's where I want to be -- so I introduce Planner to some select users, only to have Teams come out with a hobbled version of Planner built into that, but not available from Groups or the Planner Hub.
This item is still in the queue. I’m still awaiting more feedback and hope to have more details to share soon.
It seems counter intuitive, but I was able to sync files:
1) I created the Team, and loaded some files into the General channel.
2) Creating the Team, created an Office 365 Group of the same name.
3) I jumped over to the Outlook Web App, and opened the Group. From within the Group, I selected the "Files" tab. I see the files I loaded into the General channel.
4) I can now either select the "Site" tab from within the Group, and that jumps me over to SharePoint, where I can view the files and select "Sync."
5) Or still from within the Group, and in the "Files" tab, I can select "Browse Library," which does exactly the same thing as selecting the "Site" tab, jumping me over to SharePoint, where I can view the files and select "Sync."
I don't know what is causing the group files folder appear to be locked for @BenStegink. I'm an admin, so that may be why it's not an issue for me.
This is still being worked upon. I hope to have more details in the next couple months.
Please know the team is actively working on this feature.
This is in internal testing. I don’t have exact timing for you, but wanted to let you know it is coming!
I’m so happy to share an update with you! The feature team has let me know that they are working hard at this and are aiming for a spring time release.
Please comment below if you might be interested in testing or TAP, and include the industry, company size, and location of your org. We would likely want to hit a very wide range of demographics.
