    There are shortcomings as other have noted. Another shortcoming: The feature can't be used on external contacts.

    I answered the survey also. It's a travesty, only focusing on nitty gritty details of the channel/teams list, which is NOT the problem. The problem is the godawful layout of the messages and also threads. Horrendous. Hard to navigate if there is a little traffic (of course, as long as it sucks worse than a black hole, we never see much traffic, but hey, IF....) and extremely space wasting bloated as explained here hundreds of times.
    Apparently there was a post here to the forum with the survey, and it was taken down after a few hours. You can go here and endure it's stupidity, and at the end you get the chance to write FORGET THE CHANNEL/TEAM LIST! FIX THE F**KING CHAT LAYOUT ALREADY!!!

    What on earth.. This request has been sitting around for almost two years??!?
    Mind you, when comparing to slack, refer to Slack as it is when configured in "Compact" mode with just screen names.
    It looks like all relevant things that are DIRELY needed, have been stated, multiple times. I'll restate with my "most wanted" list:
    - do not waste space around messages. More compact in multiple ways, again with Slack's compact mode as a way to
    - mutiple consecutive messages from the same person don't need time/name/etc. around each message. Even Skype for Business gets this a bit better! Being worse than SfB in terms of compactness is a feat.
    - stop wasting spaces to the sides of chats.
    - allow for multi-window mode in some way, allowing for having mulitple small windows around your screen with your most important chats and no clutter/bars/sidebar/channel list.
    Scandinavians can refer to this good rant also: http://ix.io/1dqr
