This feature remains under review.
This would really help, because people sometimes misspell my name and/or nickname.
I'd like to add the different spelling varieties of my name that I have seen to a keyword notification list, so I know when people try to mention me.
Hi everyone, it looks like this bug was fixed. Are you still experiencing this problem? If so, email me directly at sparavi @ Microsoft (dot) com.
I had the exact same problem yesterday, but strangely enough it works today.
I agree. For someone who tends to use keyboard shortcuts, the Ctrl-K quick-jump feature of Slack is amazing.
In Slack, Ctrl-K autocompletes and matches against all your joined channels and active chat sessions. For example, to jump to a channel named "#support", I'll type the first few letters, like this:
Ctrl-K <s> <u> <ENTER>
The ability to turn off emojis is still being worked upon.
Also, there is work to create a compact mode which will also help reduce white space… which in turn will impact some of the complaints are far as wasted space from the emojis as well, that have been voiced in the comments.
Stay tuned for more details.
Due to prioritization of other work-items this has been moved to the backlog. We will update when it is being actively worked on again.
This feature is still on the backlog.
This feature item is still in the works. We will keep you posted as we have new info from the feature team.
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`”
We’re currently working on defining a compact mode experience. I will post more details when we have more to share.
