    My last employer was using MS Teams (years ago when I voted for this functionality), my current employer uses Slack. I can't believe such a basic feature like deleting a message when you're the admin still hasn't been implemented THREE YEARS after it was requested. Honestly, even free slack is better than MS Teams.

    **** Edit (I had some typos which made my previous message not make sense. Also added new paragraph)

    I hate how the link previews work. 90% of the links sent in our MS Teams is for atlassian products, so they all get the useless "Login to Jira..." link preview. I would really like to be able disable all link previews for atlassian products.

    An even better option would be to allow us to login to teams with OUR atlassian login, so the generated links actually have the correct meta data. This would assume that link generation is happening on the senders Teams instance, and then sending the meta data as part of the message, or perhaps the receiver can login with their credentials so page metadata is scraped on the receivers end.

    I doubt MS supports it anymore, but about 10 years ago in one of my C# applications I had an internet frame, which just used IE to render, but it also had access to your IE cookies etc. So if you had logged into a site in IE, you would be logged in the frame in my app too. Something like this would be useful here too. If MS Teams used the cookies/credentials from IE/Edge, it could actually generate useful link previews.

    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.

    'Scrolling back in time is painfully slow' has been merged into this idea
    Thanks for nothing Microsoft. That issue was very specific, the chat history (or lack thereof) is painful, and completely stupid. This ticket however is relating to the memory/cpu overhead/performance. The lack of chat history caching is the root problem in the ticket you blindly merged here.

    This really is the absolute worse thing about teams. I HATE THIS. I have contemplated making a screen scraper to make the threads and chats not so painful to browse through. Teams is the only program with chat capability I have ever had this issue with. Even msn messenger in the late 90s didn't have this problem. Mother of god please utilise cache, we don't all have gigabit internet connections like Microsofts seems to assume we do.

    Why not just follow the system time format?

    Teams effectively has no caching ANYWHERE. Even chat history is painfully slow to try and browse through (up OR down!) :@

    I don't understand how this is a difficult task which is unclear.

    How I would implement this:
    - (always) Save the channels chat history database file in the SharePoint.
    - On move, shift the sharepoint folder associated with the channel to the new teams sharepoint.
    - Teams will see a new channels folder associated with the target team, all the files will be associated with it along with the chat history.
    - ???
    - Profit

    The ability to use multiple Teams accounts at the same time is supported on iOS & Android today. The feature team is continuing to work on support for multiple accounts on desktop and web clients. We’ll keep you posted as we have more details.

    The only work around for this I have found for this it to use the web client version of the application, and login to the site in different private browser windows (or different web browsers).

    I have struggled with this for a long time before Teams, where you couldn't easily switch between microsoft accounts (like you can with google accounts). Even my primary company email address has different microsoft accounts associated to it which is painful. My solution is to be signed into different accounts on different web browsers, I have IE, Firefox and Chrome all running with different accounts, this way I can also access different Teams accounts via webclient (plus the desktop client). Thankfully on my mobile device Samsung has a feature on the Note8 which allows you to have multiple accounts tied to each app (and even have multiple instances running at once) - so effectively Samsung has solved the problem Microsoft can't.

    Final note, Microsoft seem to be making this sort of feature harder and harder to achieve recently, at work I have many instances of skype running using the "skype.exe /secondary" command, however this doesn't work on their latest version of Skype, nore are they adding it in any of there other apps (i.e. Teams) :(

    try this instead  ·  Suphatra responded

    Currently we have Teams defaulted to show you the first (up to five) channels ever created. If you want to add more channels to your left rail view, just click the ellipses next to the channel name and select “Favorite”. When you favorite the channel, it will then be “pinned” to your left rail under that team name.

    Try that and let me know if that meets your needs!

    Suphatra's work around is just that.. a work around, it wastes so much time. Some of our teams have MANY channels, requiring every user that joins the team to have to manually go through and favourite them all is stupidly inefficient. I don't understand a scenario where you would ever want users not to see the channel by default.. Maybe if there were heaps of channels which don't get any activity.. but surely unpinning would be better than having to pin everything.
