    The following suggestion has come to my attention. It's more comprehensive—basically calling for ALL meeting functionality (e.g. chat, adding files, even entering the meeting space) to be suspended when a meeting ends. This makes even more sense to me. Please vote for this suggestion: https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public/suggestions/40276684-end-meeting-means-end-meeting

    I'll leave this idea posted as well, just in case anyone prefers a more narrowly-scoped or optional solution as suggested here.

    Thank you for your feedback! We are updating this as “Partialy Done” as our first step to solving for pinned posts has been released! Pinned posts allows users from a team to pin a message for everyone in the channel to be able to easily reference. While any message can be pinnable, we expect our users to use this feature to pin information like channel guidelines or important announcements. We know this doesn’t solve all pinning scenarios, and that there is still a need to make this easier for users to find, especially within the message list. We will share another update as soon as it is available.

    It's baffling to see this kind of high-visibility low-hanging fruit go unresolved and, in this case, even unacknowledged for almost three years now. Even "Planned: targeted for fall 2025" would be better than no response at all. This seems like a management failure.

    Although, as people are mentioning, a partial workaround exists (backspacing over the last name), having to do this extra manual step for every name you @mention is annoying. This would seem to be high-visibility, low hanging fruit, but I may be underestimating the effort involved.

    I agree with those who prefer being able to use an alias because even the full first name often sounds inappropriately formal. Ideally, this would be a setting in Teams that the team owner or user themselves could set (the latter being best for delegation of control, but subject to abuse). Even pulling from AD alias would be far better than nothing even though it could mean more work for admins.

    As stated, OneNote Navigation Pane View defaults to Hide All in Teams. But if the purpose of OneNote is to manage hundreds or even thousands of notes organized in various sections, it makes no sense to default to a single note that happens to be at the top of one section. It's not even the most recent note you worked on (unless you manually move it to the top)! Yet, when you set a View option, Teams overrides it and goes back to showing a single page. 🙄

    New users often fail to notice the little arrow for expanding and seasoned users grow weary of having to manually expand over and over and over. PLEASE make Teams retain the user's OneNote Navigation Pane setting or, at the very least, default to the more sensible Show Sections and Pages view.

    I agree totally with the other comments here. This behavior not only hurts adoption by new users, but is also a real annoyance for experienced users who get tired of expending the panes over and over and over. The power of OneNote is in quickly creating, organizing and navigating hundreds or thousands of pages, so it makes no sense for the default view in Teams to always open inside of one singe page!

    At the very least, there should be an option in the admin portal to make notification for all new messages an org-wide default (useful for very small orgs) and allow owners to set a team and/or channel default for all users (instead of having to keep asking everyone to please turn this on).

    While the Microsoft group in charge of Teams is taking it's sweet time discussing this (>1 year is bordering on outrageous), a lot of your customer base is frustrated and Teams engagement is being impeded in a major way.

    Ankit Jadia is the hero here. For convenience, here's the workaround he posted earlier in the comments. I don't know why Microsoft can't at least include this workaround with their disappointing error msg.

    ---------------------------------

    Just try sending a simple "Hi" first and then paste your long message and send it. It will work. :)
    ----------
    A small explanation about why this works. Skype for Business usually sends messages as thread bubbles in groups. So when first message is being sent from your side to other party it cannot be very long. Once you send a small message like "Hi" or something and then if you send the long one it gets clubbed in a group and you won't face any problem.

    I think Teams chat is trying to mimic mobile messaging apps like Android Messenger. As others have stated, Shift+Enter or Tab+Enter (full Compose mode) are intended for longer messages. However, discoverability of these key combinations is poor. New users in particular get frustrated by this default behavior.

    For these reasons, I agree with most here that Enter should never send by default. At the very least, this behavior should be globally configurable by owners/admins to make the user experience more consistent. In that case, this should also be user-configurable in case some users prefer a mobile messaging experience.

    if you have an existing post that you want to show in a different channel, you can edit the message and cross-post. This will add the top-level post to the different channel, but will not include the full set of replies. We will keep this request in mind as we evolve the cross-posting feature in the future and update if the status changes.

    Details on cross posting can be found here: https://support.office.com/article/cross-post-a-channel-conversation-in-teams-9c1252a3-67ef-498e-a7c1-dd7147b3d295.

    Thanks for working diligently on this feature. Without it, important conversations get stranded, orphaned or completely lost as teams and channels evolve.
