    We’re fixing bugs identified in the comments, and other user reports we’ve received around markdown, but we’ve decided we’re not going to fundamentally change our markdown support.

    This is the first time we’ve declined a request, and it didn’t come easily. We weighed this against other important features we’re working on to deliver and we had to make some tough choices.

    Really appreciate your understanding on this, and please feel free to ping me if you have any questions, complaints, or need to rant.

    This is an incredibly important feature for a development team using Teams to communicate. We just switched from Mattermost to Teams and this is one of the worst hangups of the platform yet.

    I think this should be reopened. Your goals should align with your clients.

    try this instead  ·  Suphatra responded

    Currently we have Teams defaulted to show you the first (up to five) channels ever created. If you want to add more channels to your left rail view, just click the ellipses next to the channel name and select “Favorite”. When you favorite the channel, it will then be “pinned” to your left rail under that team name.

    Try that and let me know if that meets your needs!

    It doesn't really make sense to only show 5. That is an arbitrary value that should be controllable by the end user.

    I find it surprising that a team as large as Microsoft made a design decision to use a static value for this.
