Hey guys, thanks for the feedback – we hear you loud and clear. After talking this over with the Engineering team, I confirmed this will remain on the backlog and we are actively considering how to accelerate.
Tweet me if you have any questions! @skprufo
We have been iterating on different designs and are starting to test internally. I don’t have a timeframe but will keep you posted.Panagiotis commented
Many ms Team users in my company start new conversations instead of replying to threads because of this annoying design! Please Please Do something... Put a Plus sign but do not leave the "Start new conversation" edittext component down there!Panagiotis commented
I would add a "+" red button on the right bottom or on the top left screen of the team and hide the bottom Editbox ( "Start a new conversation Type @ to mention someone" ) that starts a new conversation. And leave the other EditBoxes for the conversations as it is, below the conversation so the user will understand that is the place for the answer.
