It brings me double-rainbow level happiness to give you an update on this item.
I know I’ve been mum about it, because I work on the Teams team and this feature request is dependent on the OneNote team, which is a building of purple-caped productivity superheroes in another part of campus. But I’ve gone to the promise land and I have good news to share:
Coding has started on this item. I can’t tell you when it’s going to be done, but I can assure you ITS COMING!
And you know why?
Because of your support, enthusiasm, and love of not just Microsoft Teams, but OneNote and Microsoft as your source of ultimate productivity. Thanks for believing in both of these products, using them like champs, and pushing us to make them both better. Me and @LauraCatPJs thank you.
Would like to be able to have Teams channel get an alert when a specific page in OneNote gets updated as well (use of Flow not currently able to do).
Ability to alphabetize your chat list or group into categories.

You can also tweet me at @skprufo if you have any questions.
I highly recommend they take this very seriously, because it's really unfortunate for people's first experiences with this product to be frustrating and glitchy. I don't know why Microsoft didn't think ahead about how this would impact the user.
Quick update that we have made incremental changes and you should start to see those white margins becoming much thinner and chat getting more dense in the coming weeks. It will not be the fully dense mode, but it will be moderate changes so not to jar our full user base. These changes are being implemented across the board, so this is NOT a compact chat mode that is an optional setting, but permanent changes to the UI to increase density.
I’m keeping this item on the “working on it” status because we are going to continue making the product more dense overall. We’ll continue to update you as we make progress.
Big and special thanks to the hundreds of you who participated in the user research. It gave us really great information to make these permanent changes. THANK YOU!
