          Still no word on this? I just found more threads on the same subject. Truth be told, I'd forgotten that I'd already upvoted this topic once.

          Sydney Lacey commented  · 

          So I've found three different threads on this topic. Is someone paying attention to multiple posts about what is essentially the same complaint/concern? This means the Vote count is higher than it seems! it bugs me because it doesn't seem like this topic of character limits in conversations and replies is getting any love from the devs.

                This is a frustrating problem. I'm forwarding emails to a Team account and they are often considered "too long" and end up as an embedded link that users must then click to open the entire email message. Any perceived "extra steps" for end users lessens the utilization of our Team site. The whole idea is to show them that they don't have to rely on emails and that their habit of keeping every email they've ever been sent in their inbox is counterproductive in the long run. If I'm sending/forwarding emails or posting to our Team site directly, I know to remove unnecessary images and text to cut down on the word count but if my bosses can't get their messages to "fit" the secret word count for Teams... they are going to keep using emails.

                  Thank you so much for your support of the product. This request was particularly helpful and we appreciate your engagement in the surveys, comments and forum to help us design this feature. Please continue to submit ideas!

                  For this item, we’re making great progress. It has now entered TAP validation with a small group of tenants. Will let you know how that goes!

                  It would be helpful to be able to see usage for a particular team. We are in the first stages of implementing and have no way of knowing easily if members are actually using the site. I should explain that our Team site is less of a way for everyone to communicate with each other right now and more of a hub for sharing information. While we are planning activities that will encourage our members to begin using chat and conversation features (some of which would be visible to us), it would be nice to be able to gather some data on usage during this first year of implementation.

                    I'm running into this problem when forwarding emails to an Events/Tasks channel on our Team site. Our whole purpose is to reduce the reliance on email and having people use their email folders like a permanent filing cabinet. When we get an important policy email from someone in our organization but outside of our Team, I'm sending that email to the appropriate Teams channel so it can be located easily. It works great... attachments are right there... nobody has to hunt through days, weeks, or sometimes months of emails. However, longer emails get the notice that they must be downloaded to be viewable. Today I had one that I actually had to chop into three sections and add the actual text as comments. And yes, I'm already cleaning up the emails that I forward, removing unnecessary signatures, distribution lists, and replies that aren't pertinent to the information that must be kept available.

                      I am a specialist at a school district and support a large group of elementary schools. We have started using Teams for our school administrators. This notebook is unnecessary for us the way we are utilizing the platform. All of us already have our own personal OneNote notebooks, and now we each have a redundant one inside our Team's Staff Notebook. With no way to remove the tab from the General channel, I now feel like I have to do something with it. I suppose I could load it up with links to tutorials for how to utilize Team site features and perhaps use it as a sort of Table of Contents for the most important documents in our Team Channels but I would honestly be much happier if I could just delete it.

                        Unfortunately due to re-prioritization this item has slipped back onto the “backlog” for the time being.

                        I hope to see it move back into “working on it” soon and will continue to engage the feature team with your feedback.

                        Yes, please do consider adding this feature. We've only been using Teams for about a week and are just getting it started with a group of users and I can already see that we are going to want to be able to archive conversations and channels that are no longer a priority focus.

                            I would love to see this feature for Team owners at least. I've set up a channel that we are using to list events and tasks with deadlines or due dates. The idea being that if members had questions for colleagues about a particular task, they could reply and create a conversation thread. I'd like to be able to easily move a conversation to an "archive" channel rather than delete old items completely. Of course, the other top feature on my wishlist is let users sort conversations with newest on top (and yes, I've already upvoted and subscribed to that request as well).

                                Hi everyone, thanks so much for this request.

                                We have thought this through and decided to prioritize other user-requested items, so this one has been declined. But please don’t stop telling us what you want, because we’re still working to get many of those done. We’re listening and appreciate your support and patience.

                                Oh my. We are just getting teams of the ground for a group of school admins and I am just realizing that they will have to scroll to the bottom of a conversations page in our Events and Tasks channel to see the most recent messages. Not cool, Microsoft. Every bulletin board type app I've ever used has had the option of flipping your view based on date/time.

                                  Hey Microsoft Teams users — I want you to weigh in on new features around channels and group chats. The engineering team and I have put together this survey to find out how you want to see channels improve. You can fill it out here: https://microsoft.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_esTxHdABLQxKLvn

                                  And I’m still waiting on approval to get you a good update about Private Channels. I can say that we ARE working on it, fervently.

                                  Thanks and ping me any time, for anything at all: www.twitter.com/skprufo or sparavi@microsoft.com. I’m a little behind on email but catching up, so apologies for delays there!
