    Performance has been and continues to be a big focus area for Teams. One main area we have made improvements in is responsiveness for the most frequent user actions of switching between Chat, Channel, and Activity. We are also focused on reducing resource consumption and application load time. More improvements are on the way.

    Significant is what though? There's about 20+ channels some of our members are in and the client slows to a crawl (5-10+ seconds between chats) and uses 600-800mb of ram even on a desktop quadcore machine. To add onto the fact that it has to redraw any text that isn't currently on the screen (if you scroll up, and scroll down in teams), what in the world is taking up so much ram?

    Chris commented  · 

    What constitutes "heavy" users? We use 8 channels over 4 teams, and I would constitute this as "light" or "normal" usage

    Yeah, I agree. Needs a very flat minimalistic approach instead of this web 2.0 garbage

    planned  ·  Warren responded

    This feature request has moved to the planning stage. There have also been several small updates that have gone out already, as well.

    I’ll keep you posted as I hear more about coming updates.

    How is this not a thing yet? Similar products (Discord is one such name thrown around the office when discussing Teams) offer a search to see what a user has posted, and allows you to look up something and continue a thread.

    on the backlog  ·  Warren responded

    Due to a priority shift this request has slipped to the backlog. I hate to bring bad news. I will continue to provide the feature team your feedback and votes.
    Hopefully this will move back up in the queue soon.

    -Warren

    Chris commented  · 

    You can already do this though?

    declined  ·  Warren responded

    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`”

    Please, if you are replying in a thread, and you press enter to send, please please please please please please please please please please please make it so your cursor intentionally gets placed into the existing thread you just replied in. We have too many people making a new thread when they post new info, it's not very good.

    under review  ·  Warren responded

    This is still under review by the feature team. No new details yet.
    -Warren

    Chris commented  · 

    Two versions behind and it's unsupported? Desktop teams uses too much ram compared to browser versions. IE uses 500mb of ram by itself for just only teams. This is unacceptable.

    declined  ·  Suphatra responded

    We’re fixing bugs identified in the comments, and other user reports we’ve received around markdown, but we’ve decided we’re not going to fundamentally change our markdown support.

    This is the first time we’ve declined a request, and it didn’t come easily. We weighed this against other important features we’re working on to deliver and we had to make some tough choices.

    Really appreciate your understanding on this, and please feel free to ping me if you have any questions, complaints, or need to rant.

    Chris commented  · 

    That's disappointing. I really dislike markdown features. I don't want to auto italicize, or auto emote. Maybe make a "post as code" without ANY formatting section?

    working on it  ·  Suphatra responded

    I’m excited to share that I got to use this in our experimental settings the other day. We’ve built it and are testing it internally. I’ll let you know once it moves up in the validation rings!

    partially done  ·  Warren responded

    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.

    Is there a way to post custom smileys or post faces WITHOUT it trying to convert it into a emoji or smiley face? ie :V
