          How about a constructive comment about how Teams could help?

            The idea, rightly or wrongly, is that you're supposed to use search to find your old conversations

                Glad to see this has made it onto the backlog.

                    This is still under review. It looks like ensuring merging would work as you would expect, has a lot of underlying parts. The team is working to under the full impact of taking this request.
                    I hope to have more feedback soon.

                    This request is basically a clone of https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public/suggestions/32684689-combine-conversations. Please can you merge them together.

                    Jamie Thomson commented  · 

                    I came on here to as for exactly this, thank you to the person that already raised it.

                    This is definitely a problem - I often see people starting new conversations when they should be replying to existing ones. Its clearly an accident on their part but given it happens so often (and believe me, it does) I'm led to believe that the UI is somewhat to blame. Its not just novice users that do it either, I've seen extremely IT-literate people that are experienced in using Teams making the same mistake.

                    I find the problem occurs more often when people are replying via a phone app, the distinction there between replying to a new conversation starting a new one is less pronounced.

                    I think the ability to merge conversations together would be really useful. I suggest the following rules around it:
                    - 2 conversations can only be merged if they are in the same channel
                    - Conversation merging can only be done either by the person that started the conversation that is going to be merged, or by a team owner
                    -If the two conversations each have many messages then the resulting merged conversation might be even messier than when they were separate (due to messages from both conversations being mixed together). The person doing the merge should have the opportunity to preview what the merged conversation would look like.

                        a gif to demonstrate why the current "Copy Link" (aka permalink) feature is so broken https://t.co/alt276w5iL

                        When I select "Copy Link" I expect to get a link (i.e. a URL) in my clipboard, not some rich text that is useless when pasted into a tool that doesn't recognise it.

                        Jamie Thomson commented  · 

                        A "Copy link" feature has appeared in teams at some point in the recent past. Unfortunately (as at 2018-04-09) it doesn't work. Reported here: https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public/suggestions/33896725--copy-link-aka-permalink-doesn-t-work-properly

                        So so so bad.

                        Jamie Thomson commented  · 

                        Another need for this arose today. I'm having a discussion on a pull request in a gitlab repo. There was a conversation in Teams a few weeks ago that pertains to the discussion being had in gitlab but there's no way of referencing that Teams conversation. All I need is URL (aka a permalink) to that conversation which I can include in the gitlab pull request.

                        Please...we need URLs (aka permalinks) for conversations and messages permalinks. URLs for deeplinking are the currency of the web, they make the web what it is...its so disappointing that Teams does not support them.

                        (gitlab is essentially an on-premises github)

                        Jamie Thomson commented  · 

                        If a message permalink is pasted into another message then I'd expect that message to get quoted or presented in a nice readable way, similar to how public links are today.

                        Jamie Thomson commented  · 

                        ignore my reference to the Teams desktop app, actually we need this from everywhere (i.e. all client apps, and the web app).

                        Whenever I see a message in Teams I'd like to be able to get a permalink to it.

                            This happens for me also. I think (but can't be certain) that I only receive such notifications on my phone (with is an iOS device). In other words, in the desktop app I am not receiving notifications for Teams that I used to be a member of, but I *am* receiving those notifications in iOS.

                            This is a bug. Please fix.

                              Basically... copy whatsapp’s “share live location” feature.

                              Jamie Thomson commented  · 

                              I like this idea a lot. When I'm using the mobile app I want to share my location with my colleagues - would be invaluable for a mobile workforce. My iphone allows me to share my location with anyone I want and I use that to share my location with my family. I don't want to share my lcoation with my colleagues all the time though, so make it a feature of Microsoft Teams and allow me to specify which times of the day my location should be shared.

                              It might even be a way for a company to passively monitor the location and travel history of their workforce. Make it mandatory for members of a Team to share their location (or perhaps make it a condition of joining a Team). Of course, a company should only be able to monitor their employees' location during work hours, and this feature should reflect that.

                              I suspect there are loads of scenarios where this would be valuable. For example, a logistics company could know where all its delivery drivers are at any one time by plotting their locations in a Microsoft Teams tab.
