    This request is still being considered by the feature team but a final decision has not yet been made. I’m still awaiting more details.

    Cannot MS use some of their super-dooper AI to determine who is replying to whom? Rather than fill the UI with "<-Reply" text boxes which serve to bamboozle us users. Agree it is an education thing, but I don't want to learn a special way of doing this to use an app I just want to use it. Thanks!

    I guess this is the key difference between a server based tech like Teams and peer-to-peer skype, skype loved being offline. Teams needs to work offline or at the very least fail gracefully so that some functionality carries on working (browsing chat history as a starter)

    This is the most notable deficiency from moving from Skype to Teams.

    Skype lets you do:

    [11/09/2017 15:59:12] Alice Jones: Here is my IM comment about something or other
    In theory, it should update every 5 minutes
    [11/09/2017 16:06:31] Bob Smith: Here in my reply about that
    [11/09/2017 16:07:43] Alice Jones: Here is my comment to that
    [11/09/2017 16:12:24] Bob Smith: etc.

    Which is useful when you want to reference the IM conversation in another system.

    Where as Teams just flashes the selection on/off when you multi-select messages and only if you catch the timing just right can you CTRL+C it. And then you get something like this which is not very useful:

    Morning, my comment - who ever I am?
