    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.

    Conversation search is just useless and frustrating.

    Searching some word gives ONLY the single message that I sent with this word, with no ability to see the context (what am I replying to ? What was the rest of the chat after ?). Only gives the date and I have to manually scroll to that date (slowly...).

    Periodic repost of the CSS workaround https://userstyles.org/users/727497

    Emmanuel Preveraud commented  · 

    The survey in the admin reply is 404, used the link provided in a comment.
    Indeed, the questions are absolutely not relevant to this topic.

    So I'll continue to periodically promote my CSS customization for Dense and Compact view of chat published here: https://userstyles.org/users/727497

    Not updated for a few months since it's working well enough for me day-to-day despite a few shortcomings, but difficult to improve with the current state of the html structure.

    So, it looks like I will need to maintain my own custom CSS for many years to come !

    Compact and Condensed mode available through user CSS : https://userstyles.org/users/727497

    I could not no anything yet for the emojis, because I discovered that each emoji has its own css class (like class="animated-emoticon-20-smile"), but they don't have a global common class to write an easy css rule ! I would need to add an individual rule for hundreds of different emoji classes...

    @Mike: no problem with the attribution; good to see other people showing their own vision of a compact layout !

    Emmanuel Preveraud commented  · 

    I updated my CSS customizations for compact/condensed modes with some minor corrections on https://userstyles.org/users/727497 , for people who look for a workaround.

    @sean: a few evenings for the first drafts, then two sundays to polish everything. Basically it is doable comfortably in 2 week-ends; the largest time sink was reverse-engineering the maze of the source html and css class hierarchy.

    Emmanuel Preveraud commented  · 

    This week-end I decided to create my own compact layout with CSS rules.

    Result screenshot before/after is here: https://imgur.com/a/1sFBQxx

    To test it yourself, install a browser extension for custom styles, I used Stylus: https://add0n.com/stylus.html and use the CSS that I posted here: https://pastebin.com/HhGyBpzP

    It's not perfect, it works well for group chat but not yet for team chats (a few graphical glitches), some elements had to get a color specified, and I used the one of the Dark theme. This will look ugly on the default theme. But if I continue working on it I'll probably have a working compact mode before Microsoft...

    20 years ago I used IRC clients in text-mode and they were and still are the only design guide that you need for efficient text conversation.

    2 fixed column on the left : timestamp; username; all the remaining room on the right is the text, on the same line.

    No user photo. No alternating left-side / right-side "bubbles" for my contact's and my texts, everybody is the same; no artificially narrow centered text zone (text goes from the left to the right side of my browser window)

    No "Reply" under EVERY line for group chat, just add it on the existing hover actions.

    And just add big boxes under for all which is not simple text chat (meeting invitations, files...)

    Not really convinced by this idea; it's like the "search" function of the Windows taskbar, it should search for apps and maybe documents but should absolutely not do a Bing search. We have browsers for that.

    Same with Teams, it's already bad enough that I can't find conversations, it would be worse it it was also cluttered by non-relevant emails or sharepoint folders. I know when I want to search for a conversation or an email and use the appropriate tool for this.

    If done, as always, it should be activated by an option.

    Yeah, even the compact mode request to Microsoft was never accepted.

    You can try my CSS customization for a condensed view here: https://userstyles.org/users/727497

    Unfortunately we hit some snags and this has moved back to “working on it”. The team is working to make some corrections and I hope to have a release date in the near future. I’ll keep you posted with what I hear.
