We are working on this!
when can we see this and other simple features finally added??
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`”
This issue is much larger than just the plethora of 8 billion "Reply" buttons. The sheer number of them makes for a noisy UX.
The input and threading model for this software could use a bit of a rethink, methinks.
We need your feedback! Which button do you like best? Fill out this 3-question survey here: https://aka.ms/ComposeButtonSurvey
Also, we’re coming up against some blocks and our previous ship date of end of year is now going to be early next year. Thank you for your patience. :-)
Please fill out the survey! Tweet me @skprufo if you have any questions.
Here's a scenario. Someone comes into a channel and types a bunch of stuff, separating their sentences with a newline. In the current implementation, each of those lines will be a new conversational thread, which would be opposite of the intention.
So far, Teams is not coming across as a well-thought-out experience, and much more like "OMG, let's figure out this Slack thing that all the kids are talking about on those interwebz".
Please put some real UX energy into this.
Hi Everyone – thank you for your patience. As was commented by someone below, Suphatra is no longer at Microsoft, but rest assured we are working on this feature.
Yes, please. We need a private channel for our team to discuss dev, and a company-open channel for users to interact with us. A non-starter for our team without that.
