This request is still in the works. And it appears most people are interested in the ability to pin multiple items. I’ll circle back to the feature team and give them your additional feedback.
This request has been reviewed and declined by the feature team.
You can continue to up vote this topic as well as leave comments. Depending on the ongoing feedback, there is always a chance a topic will be revisited based on user demand.
Dumb idea. Don't do this.
Hey guys, guess who’s back from maternity leave? Your favorite Teams PM, Suphatra! I’ve been back for a few weeks and catching up on where we’re at in Engineering.
Private channels is still actively in development, and I am hoping I’ll be given clearance to share with you some more details. What would be great is if you can post in this thread any specific questions you have about the feature, besides just an inquiry on the release date.
You can also email them to me at firstname.lastname@example.org, as well as any other concerns you might have.
It’s good to be back, and good to be posting on here again. I hope you are all doing well!
Private channels are, I assume, just like group chats with the added benefit that you can add tabs and have threaded conversations. Just like existing channels.
So when private channels are delivered (as it seems they soon will be) what happens to group chats because I suspect there is huge overlap with private channels?
There is still one distinctive feature of group chats that I really like - that is the fact that they're not attached to any Team. I don't have to be in any team to have a group chat and for that reason group chats are used far more than channels in our organisation. I worry that when we have group chats AND private channels there will be confusion about which one should use.
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.
Commenter Andrew has it spot on with " oblivious to how the web works"
update...just tried it on a colleague's Windows10 machine...same happens there
"Does not have landscape" == "totally immature"
This item is still under review.
I would like some comments in the thread to help clarify, I believe this is asking about merge replies within a channel. I want to confirm the ask is targeting the grouping or replies in channels and not in messaging.
Your feedback would be appreciated.

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.
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.
Please read https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public/suggestions/32866744-scenario-for-channel-chat-header-and-permalinks for a scenario where this would be useful
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)
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.
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.
This feature request has moved into the testing stage. I’ll keep you updated as we get closer and closer to a release date. :)
Basically... copy whatsapp’s “share live location” feature.
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.
