    Every time I open Slack for any reason I openly weep at how much simpler and beautiful online collaboration used to be and curse being trapped in this prison of awkward spacing and weird thread replies. Days have turned to weeks, to months and nothing ever changes. I look out the window and see birds fly in the sky and am reminded of the freedom that is not mine. My joy at seeing their freedom turns to bitter pain and misery as I realize I can still not chat with someone in this tool without switching between meta tabs and that I have to scroll until my joints ache in order to see what is happening in a conversation. I am fettered to the earth with the chains of broken promises made by Microsoft usability groups. They tell me things will be better soon. They lie. Nothing has any meaning anymore. Please fix.

    I have to pile on. Very disappointed with the lack of energy around actioning this. I may be in the minority but I REALLY have to force myself to use MS Teams for collaboration. I was happy and comfortable collaborating all day in Slack. The fact that my organization is well invested in Microsoft tooling and solutions makes Teams the ideal pick, but it is sorely lacking in a usable UX that makes me and my teams more productive. I would guess that a majority of people would prefer the UX of Slack vs MS Teams. This needs more than a minor change, I want to see the context of a conversation at a glance. I want to be able to see who is active in the channel, and see at a glance who are the names in the conversation and if I need to get involved. I don't want to be doing a lot of scrolling or clicking through the uber tabs like Chat and Teams in order to collaborate meaningfully. You guys have the reach and you have the platform, this tool could really be a game changer. Instead it feels like a significant step down from Slack and I think most developers who are used to a more mature collaboration tool will see it in a similar light.
