    Right, people are going to pick Slack over this cause of this one issue? Check again, Slack cannot merge channels either lol..... You can export and import data but not a true merge, so try again.

    Great performance and user experience remain a topmost priority for us. Application launch time has seen improvements in the recent build. We will continue making improvements across the product including channel to chat switching and overall resource consumption.

    Thanks for the update Warren, seeing all these changes recently has my hopes up for Teams again, we were in a lul for awhile where nothing seemed to be happening! Looking forward to it!

    This isn't slack, I've never had issues with Teams channels and I don't like Slacks setup.

    You used to be able to go to the channels tab on the team and see who all has a channel Favorited, not sure why they removed that out of the blue but if that was back it would help, that's my only complaint.

    That said I like being able to favorite a channel and not follow it so I don't get blown up with notifications but i can keep an eye on it for new activity, and get alerts for mentions.

    Best thing I can say, Mention everyone that needs to favorite the channel, tag them in a conversation and just tell them, hey don't forget to Favorite this channel so you don't miss anything and be done with it.

    People this isn't slack, stop trying to make it slack. I cannot stand how compact Slack is, its near unreadable.

    That said, the real solution to this problem is give two options. Regular view, and "Compact" view, that the user can pick from, cause if they want that jumbled nasty wall of unorganized text that is slack, they can have it to make them happy :P lol. Win win for everyone.

    Drew, grow up. Lei, not everyone thinks Slack is a good UI. I for one think it's very poor, and I prefer Microsoft's direction they are going with the UI so I really hope they don't try to copy Slack, because that isn't a good thing. Teams is missing some features but the UI direction def. isn't one of them.

    Please don't say look at Slack, slack's UI is terrible. But I'm disappointed cause we were told soon, soon, soon, now it's like back to the drawing board again. Definatley, need to eliminate some white space on the sides and spread/resize the text area based on window size. Also, always give options, let us choose to reduce whitespace or leave as is etc. Maybe even a theme engine where we can define all the elements and make it our own would be ideal. Then people can make it layout however they wanted.

    Teams already doesn't make it new picture and timestamp for replies, the problem is your starting new conversations for every single chat, use it for how it is dsigned with threaded conversations. Same with getting rid of the reply button, that doesn't make sense and is a huge issue for people that actually do use threaded conversations. If anything reply needs to be more defined and the new conversation should be a button.

    Other items can't argue with.

    Thanks for update Warren, kind of a let down thou because we seem to be told this is coming soon, then deploying soon, to more info later, transparency would be better than just being left out to dry. Even if you guys told us, testing the new UI was bad, and we need to go back to the drawing board or something is better than just sitting here wondering.

    good to hear, been waiting patiently for this! Took the survey and liked the mockups that I saw back then.

    Guys, Shared channels basically have same functionality and they are comming. You @mention a shared channel which is cross team, this will basically do the same, and this is actively being worked on.

    Owners can with the delete all chat messages option on currently. Users still cannot. This bot should probably post in the context of the user submitting it, but not sure that is possible.

    Your admin changed the chat setting in your tenant. In Teams settings in the admin center you can turn off private chats which will remove this tab.

    Check out planner sessions from ignite. They are adding integrations from planner to todo and roughly Outlook tasks.

    I disagree, I prefer the Threaded view after using it awhile and getting use to it. I would like the option on per channel basis thou if possible, cause some things are running conversations only, use case "Server Updates" Or perhaps. What may be a better fix is provide a Drill down into a conversation so you can just treat it like a chat on a screen. This might work out actually.

    Oh god, please make this happen. The threading just adds confusion and a mess. Discord works great and it's not threaded. Constantly have people not click in reply for a thread and now you have 2 threads, and it is just not a very good user experience. If it's possible to make it optional that would be great, or just disable it all together for the whole team. either way.

    we have this!  ·  Suphatra responded

    Hi everyone — here’s some clarity on our legal compliance.

    As of now, Chat history for a Team is stored infinitely and available for eDiscovery/Content Search. So, the answer to your question depends on what you mean by closing the project. If you close the project, but don’t kill the Office 365 Group/Team associated with, everything should be still searchable. You should be able to recall/search for all chat activity that happened within the Team by scoping your compliance content search to the appropriate group mailboxes. The data is not lost.

    Please let me know if you have any other questions! You can post a message here or tweet me @skprufo.

    Thanks,
    Suphatra

    No she means leave the team or if you have preservation on your mailboxes you can delete them. Then search via compliance center just like you do a mailbox to retrieve info.

    They already journal your chat messages to your mailbox. Just guess they don’t expose it to the users. Please turn that on! Cause right now it looks like chat is limited to 30 day history in the app.

    I think this is an iOS limitation. Pretty sure Facebook and other apps do the same thing.

    You can get to tabs in the mobile app. It’s in top right corner. Not sure if this has been added since this post but it’s there.

    Hi folks, is this still happening for you? If so, please send me your logs at sparavi (at) Microsoft (dot) com. I’ll see if we can repro the issue and figure out what’s going on.

    Thanks,

    Maybe your admins restrict group creation and thus breaks the create team button.

    Yeah leave them separate, however, give us an option in the client to PoP out our chats. If you add this single feature, Skype for Business is history :P.

    Hey guys, I read they are adding support for flow and if this gets added you can easily link a conversation action into a SharePoint list/item on any page you want.
