    Thank you for your feedback! We are updating this as “Partialy Done” as our first step to solving for pinned posts has been released! Pinned posts allows users from a team to pin a message for everyone in the channel to be able to easily reference. While any message can be pinnable, we expect our users to use this feature to pin information like channel guidelines or important announcements. We know this doesn’t solve all pinning scenarios, and that there is still a need to make this easier for users to find, especially within the message list. We will share another update as soon as it is available.

    I am displeased that this went from being released back into the backlog. This can't be that hard to add and its critically important to bootstrapping new teams. Low handing fruit should continue to be developed. Is this yet another thing held up due to an overarching desired to do as little UX work as possible until you dump electron.js for react? Speaking as a Teams IT Admin who is working with far too many developers coming in from Slack land, they are simple blown away with how many small stupid easy to code UX items are simply not up to snuff. Please take time to put some UX polish on all of teams, those with the loudest voices are deeply upset at things they see as easy to add not being done, this being one of them. Still love you and the teams development group but please set aside a percentage of development for the non critical lower hanging fruit things like things.

    Its amazing to me just how awesome Teams can be and have a polar opposite like this. This is simply lazy code that should be corrected.

    It would be fantastic if any thread (or personal chat) could be flagged for remind me with 1, 4, 8 hours or days plus the ability to set an exact time. My slack users are pointing out they already have this. This would generate a fresh reminder in activities or chats.

    I dont really care of you allow this or not but please do put in the UI that you cant do it currently, I dont need users asking me to turn it on only to spend 30 mins finding ALMOST NOTHING related to it and finally just having to guess you cant do encoders with public events.

    Listen I hate that private channels exist just as much as you didnt want to put them in but they are here. Not having direct links to posts seems like a massive oversight, please commit to doing something about it. Hopefully this isnt out of spite for not wanting these things in the first place.

    yeah there are good reasons to screenshare with one and be on a call with another. Think about your PBX customers that might be dealing with someone from the outside while also working with someone on the inside.

    Not only do I want Alpha but I also want order of visit mainly so the current team I am floats to the top. I belong to over 100 teams, there is no using the left pane but yet some of the functionality related to teams and channel management is there. I have to go through settings now which is ideal. So yeah Alpha AND Recent sort options.

    As a Teams Admin migrating a few thousands developers into teams this was brought up again. I know there are a lot of priorities but this seems fairly low hanging fruit. Ether do all emojis or at least expand significantly. This isn't the kind of feature I want my developers complaining they dont have. Last update Alex was over a year ago, time to give us an update please.

    The engineering team is continuing to work on adding support for multiple accounts on desktop clients. We will first launch support for 1 work/school account and 1 personal account so users can enjoy Teams for work and personal side-by-side. Windows and MacOS. Support for multiple work accounts is still being worked on and will come at a later date.

    You can track status via the roadmap here: https://www.microsoft.com/microsoft-365/roadmap?searchterms=68845.

    Thanks!

    Glad to see your turning your attention to it. Organizing by Tenant isn't how people interact. Now that many of my users are using external contacts for the first time they are seeing just how painful it is to explain to a first time external contact how to switch orgs as well god forbid you are the external contact the pain and horror of having to switch orgs is too much. I have been on meetings and needed to switch orgs and could not without disconnecting my call. I bet this is fundamental, that is going to take so much effort, but if you really want teams to continue to grow is must be done and it must be down soon before you miss your window.

    Only 7 votes? I being raised by the Florida public education system I sadly depend on spell check. Google's is the best for sure but Outlook's isn't that bad. Teams however, not sure where it comes from but it isn't good enough. I frequently have to cut and paste over to a google search to get the correct spelling of things. Please consider using the office AI for better in-teams spell check. Do it for those of us raised in underfunded public school systems that are controlled by those who wish to keep the masses under educated.

    Posted an example below, it should have definitely been able to figure this one out.

    I didnt think much about this till recently. We are now looking to kill Yammer. The company has spoken and they dont want two tools. Public teams can replace outer loop better then Yammer can with the single exception that you dont get to see how many people saw your post. This wont be a deal breaker for moving from Yammer to teams for outer loop stuff but it would be nice to see it in Teams. Lastly, I know its a hard pill to swallow that Yammer is useless, but lets redirect those development resources to teams and make it even better like Idk "seen by" counts lol...

    OMG PLEASE.... as a producer, we always have three producers one for slides one for video/content, and Q&A person that only leaves 6 video squares and most of our town halls has more. This is a real problem for us.

    Just like CS said, our termed users are AD Disabled, ends up showing as removed from the team, this has a negative impact on moral when there are headcount reductions. Also the message in the team comes from an owner even though they didnt remove them.

    My marketing department wont take it seriously until such time as they can get a list of people who attended. Even if its as crude as not allowing anonymous that would be fine for now. For attendees to logon with a Microsoft ID.
