      I’ve brought your concerns to the Feature Team. Deleting of the General channel will not be an option.

      However, renaming of the General channel is now under review! I have updated the title to reflect the corrected ask.

      Keep up the feedback! Your voices make a big difference.

          Just hover over a person’s avator and click the org chart icon in the screen that appears. Or you can click the “Organization” tab in your 1:1 chat with them. If you want to move around your company’s org chart, just click the different people who appear in the chart.

          Seth commented  · 

          Given Teams has implemented the basic org chart functionality (which is great!) it seems like a full "top down" org chart should be not only simple to provide but also a no-brainer feature.
          This NEEDS to be provided!

            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`”

            Seth commented  · 

            Seeing the current "Working On It" status to minimize the "reply" button is upsetting.
            It's extremely evident that users are still using the "new conversation" field to reply and making this "reply" button even more inconspicious is going to lead to more and more people screwing up the threaded chat.

            If the reply button is going to be made smaller then it MUST be in conjunction with a change to how threaded conversations are started. Without making "Start a new conversation" a button of some sort - users will turn this threaded convo view into a giant messy chat room with no organization.

            Seth commented  · 

            This seems insane to me.
            If the reply button is made LESS pronounced then every channel will turn into a messy chat room with no organization!

            I can understand how this request might have been generated from some small 5-person crew but with an org of 100+ people like ours, a less obvious way to "reply" will destroy functionality.

            I believe there should be a button at the bottom for "Create a new post/convo" (as any threaded conversation platform has?) and the reply field can happen when you click on a convo - removing the wasted space and complaining from smaller groups.

            Seth commented  · 

            The threaded conversations work great but I'd vote that the "reply" button needs to be completely rethought.

            My users still (regardless of the multiple trainings) reply to conversations by creating their own topic because the "reply" button isn't intuitive.

            Something needs to be reworked so that the layout drives a user toward correctly replying to a conversation.
            I believe creating a button at the bottom that says "Create topic" which then allows users to enter text into the field would work much better and drive users to utilize the platform correctly.

              Incredible that this wasn't rolled out with the platform. Very short-sighted.

                    This absolutely needs to be addressed. I've brought it up in other threads here that related to the reply button.

                    The 100+ employee org I maintain right now has a massive problem with accidentally creating a new convo instead of replying - heck, even i do it sometimes. Every other threaded convo system i'm aware of utilizes a "Create a new post" kind of button and that seems to be a universal standard that works very well.

                        No big update. However, the ask about speech to text meeting notes needs to be a separate request and therefore I have created a new suggestion for it. You can go here and up vote it! https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103/suggestions/33534778

                        As for recording of video meetings, this is still coming along nicely.

                        Recording of meetings is on the roadmap for the Q2 2018 calendar year.

                          Can't move my entire dev/product team over until an import function is created.
                          **** - even a third party "so-so" bandaid would be good enough.

                            I like Manny's idea below.
                            This is a preference based issue and should be "fixed" so that both sides win.

                            Seth commented  · 

                            After reading a few of the "use cases" below - it seems the folks that are requesting the merger of "Chat" and "Teams" are ones working in small groups/companies.

                            For an org of our size - having these tabs combined would destroy functionality. Maybe it would be better to provide users (or admin) with the ability to pick between two "types" of views for Teams. One of these views could be better situated for those who only have a handful of people in their team.

                            Seth commented  · 

                            We very much enjoy having the "peer to peer" chat functions (those from S4B) under a separate section.
                            If the "Teams" and "Chat" tabs were to be merged together, it would be a chaotic mess!

                            Allow admins to decide which style UI that works for their environment - forcing this kind of change down the pipe on us will absolutely move us away from Teams entirely.

                              I have dropped S4B and migrated comepletely over to Teams in our org (100+ employees).
                              I get alot of complaints from users who want to be able to "mute" particular channels that may/may not apply to them. Currently you can only turn off notifications globally which is not effective.

                              Many of our users have turned off notifications entirely because they have no way to control which channels alert them - this is killing the adoption of the platform because now no one sees anything going on.

                                  This is still under review.
                                  As Suphatra mentioned, a lot of things will need to come together as this is a complex piece. I hope to have further details to share, but a this time it is still being investigated.

                                  Thank you for all your feedback. I hope to have more news soon.

                                      I've moved our entire org over to Teams and disable Skype across the board.
                                      There is no reason I can find for our environment (or any other environment) to need both if Teams can provide some of the core features provided by S4B.

                                      -Screensharing needs to not require a video/phone call
                                      -Presence integration into outlook is a MUST
                                      -Presence system based on device usage NOT app usage is a must

                                      If we can get those things in place - 95% of my user complaints will be solved and our environment will no longer have a use for S4B

                                      The desktop screenshare is an important feature of skype that my users utilized often.
                                      Forcing users to do a video conference first before being able to share their screen is a huge inconvenience. Either allow users to set a preference so that their webcam is not defaulted on during a video call or provide a way to share a screen outside of a video call.
