I guess this request is covered by this one: https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public/suggestions/20489707-make-subject-line-visible-by-default-on-new-conver
Yes, making the subject line visible would also help users distinguish between replying to an existing conversation and starting a new conversation.
And making it possible to require a subject line (at least in certain channels) would basically make it impossible for users to mistakenly start a new conversation.

Any news on this? It's been "planned" for almost a year now...
I would like to emphasize the importance of quoting parts of messages so as to show exactly what you are replying to. Is this what you are planning? (quotemaster unfortunately only quotes the entire message)

> Simply copy the line of text that you wish to quote and use “Shift” + “>” (greater than symbol) to insert someone’s comments as a quote.
Thanks for pointing that out, Warren, but I'm not sure if this is specific to US keyboards or if I'm missing something else because for me, “Shift” + “>” produces the greater than symbol (and formats the current line as a quote) but it does not insert the content of the clipboard (why should it anyway?). So your workaround works, but it is quite a bit more laborious than you seem to suggest. Also, from that quote, there is, of course, no way of telling who the original author was or which post the quote comes from. (I hope this will be included in the actual feature once it's released).
Anyway, thanks for pointing out the workaround!
As we announced at Microsoft Ignite 2019 this morning, we are excited to confirm that Multi-window capabilities are coming to Microsoft Teams, and will start rolling out to the public ring early next year!
Alex & the Teams team
@Warren One year later, this is still on the backlog, I suppose, but could you post a quick update on whether there are any new developments? Even negative news are better than no news...
We have been iterating on different designs and are starting to test internally. I don’t have a timeframe but will keep you posted.
It's great to see that things are happening and I appreciate that you are asking users for feedback. I was a bit surprised, though, when I saw the three options to are considering in the survey. Given those alternatives, I dare say that the result is quite predictable: most people will obviously prefer "New conversation". ("New chat" will be the second option, but most will probably reject it as too informal and/or potentially confusing as the term is already used elsewhere in Teams. And "New Post", frankly, should not have been in the survey in the first place because it contradicts the very purpose of distinguishing replies from new conversations, which is what this "feature request" is about.)
So I'm left wondering what the purpose of this survey is, after all. There are other terms that could meaningfully have competed with "New Conversation", such as "New Topic", or "New Thread". The fact that it they were omitted suggest that someone at Microsoft is fighting trying to explain to their colleagues that "New Conversation" is the best option and needs some backing for that from the users. Fair enough. I also think that is the best option, but it's sad to see that some people at microsoft don't see this as already evident from what has been said here over the past 1.5 years.
This has already been reported here https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/908686-bug-reports/suggestions/33980656-the-teams-meeting-add-in-causes-a-crash-in-outlook
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.
Just to be clear: what exactly is being worked on here? Is it what was originally requested in the OP or what Suphatra described in her post, i.e. the invite link workaround?
As mentioned in the prior status, the channel limit was raised from 100 to 200.
In the near future a retention limit will be set so you can still go back and reinstate a channel you had deleted. Once the retention period has expired then the channel will get a hard delete which will free up the space and no longer count toward the 200 channel limit.
This will help with some of the issues you have voiced in the comments below.
But I understand many of you wish the limit to be further increased. I will continue to provide your votes and comments to the feature team.
This item is still being reviewed and pending a decision. No new details at this time.
I’m not sure if auto-follow is the better for all channels (people may get annoyedabout having to repeatedly unfollow new niche channels) it would be great to let channel creators decide whether this should be an opt-in or an opt-out channel.
The feature team is hard at work on this feature. We will share more news as we get closer to release.
Due to prioritization of other work-items this has been moved to the backlog. We will update when it is being actively worked on again.
Is the survey already closed or is it broken? When I click the link, it says "Sorry, this survey is not currently active."
This request is now being reviewed by the feature team! I’ll keep you posted as to the future decision.
Could this be solved with the planned feature of quoting earlier messages? See https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public/suggestions/18699934-quoting-previous-messages
