We’re currently working on defining a compact mode experience. I will post more details when we have more to share.
@Sean Ellis good for You, I hope that my company will go the same way.
Can a complete amateur apply for that position? I'm sure I won't make the Teams worse than it's now :-D
The UI is so "great" that almost 99% of first time users use "Start new conversation" instead of "Reply". Please make the the UI elements even bigger, it's the best way to go.
This is pathetic. An amateur with a basic css knowledge could fix the **** Teams layout in one single day and make it better. Who the **** is working on this project? Preschool children?
@Sean - totally agree with You.
But MS doesn't give a #### about user's request. Their definition of "professional compact layout" is just completely different than ours. The bigger fonts the better, the less content on a single screen the better.
I believe that sooner we'll hear that Teams is in EndOfLife state... which would be a good thing anyway.
Some of us are just forced to use this piece of #### application.
We acknowledge the demand for this capability and are exploring the best possible solutions to enable this.
Teams is just a complete redefinition of messaging app. ****** redefinition I must add.
Trying to reinvent the wheel for... nth time? Any chance that this ULTRA-ADVANCED function (known for as long as online messengers exist) will be available in Teams before the year 2020 arrives?
We know so many of our customers use Linux and we want Teams to be available for everyone. Stay tuned for more information soon.
@Eric Nichols - Teams developers don't care. This candidate should use the "one and only" Windows on his machine.
We acknowledge the customer demand for Private Channels and have been hard at work on it. Private Channels is currently in preview with a select group of customers. We expect to release the feature to the public later this Fall, and will update here when we are starting to roll out to all customers. We appreciate all the feedback you have provided to us on this forum and thank you for your patience.
This item is still under review. No new updates at this time.
"Your conversations aren't yours anymore" - this should be a main catchphrase for Teams.
Year 2020 maybe? Will You make it before Microsoft decides to ditch MSTeams and start some new and REVOLUTIONARY (as usual) chat application project?
Such a basic feature seems like something unbelievable in Teams. It's important to have at least the export function - as the current chat history is useless - trying to find something in everyday conversations is not user friendly at all. Going back to some point in time... just forget it - "the text placeholder fun" begins. Is it so hard to display more than 5-6 lines of text without the dreadful placeholder?
Performance has been and continues to be a big focus area for Teams. One main area we have made improvements in is responsiveness for the most frequent user actions of switching between Chat, Channel, and Activity. We are also focused on reducing resource consumption and application load time. More improvements are on the way.
We are still considering this feature for future releases, and will continue to update the status when it changes.
