    I believe what the O.P. is asking for are "sticky" settings for chat messages.
    Those would be awfully nice to have, especially if more sizing and formatting choices were available.

    This could really use point sizes. Or even just a few more abstract size choices in between the ones we already have, such as "medium-large" or "medium-small."

    Even if you have to hide this in an "Advanced Configuration" panel (or even as as text setting in an .INI file!!) it would be a REAL HELP to have this feature.

    I don't have a choice. My entire organization uses Teams, so I must as well. If a colleague at another company asked me if they should use this, I would say DEFINITELY NOT... and it's because of so many usability issues like THIS one!

    partially done  ·  Warren responded

    The zoom feature has released to the public ring. Using CRTL + or CTRL – zoom in and out on a Windows PC.

    I need to correct the information I provided last month about MAC. It appears the MAC version is still in testing and hasn’t yet gone out to the public. It is “In Testing” but will be coming to the public soon!

    The item tracking this specific update can be found at: https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/admin/v3/suggestions/16933183/activity

    There now is a UI element that tells you your current zoom level and a Setting within the UI to preset your zoom preference.

    Since the zoom feature could very well cover the vast majority of user needs, based on the majority of comments and feedback, I will flag this item as Partially Done.

    Thank you for all the feedback and support!
    -Warren

    This helps... but there are TWO problems:

    1) Increasing the GUI size means it now steals even more screen real-estate. Why can't I tell the app I want the fonts sized up 140% without sizing up the GUI?

    2) You forgot the pop-out chat window. I can at least read the contents of the main window. The pop out is useless to me because it's so tiny I cannot read it.

    By the way, please don't reply with "oh, well, just adjust your font scaling in Windows." I'm a software developer, so I know that is sometimes an option. Unless you are forced to use some legacy applications that don't handle Windows font scaling correctly.... and I am.

    So, PLEASE, just make the fonts more configurable in the Teams application!

    My eyesight is failing. Not so much that I need to make the icons and banner in the application bigger, but I do need the fonts to be a bit bigger.

    It would be nice to be able to increase the font sizes by a certain factor, without increasing the size of everything else in the UI.

    PLEASE add this!

    1) I don't want to adjust the font scaling in Windows itself; none of my other apps are hard to see and some apps don't handle non-100% font scaling too well.

    2) The *main* Teams window has "zoom" where Ctrl+mousewheel lets you change the app size. (It scales the ENTIRE app including the banner and other items --- not great, wish I could just scale the font --- but that's a different issue, and it's "good enough")

    3) The pop out chat window *** WHICH I'VE LONG AWAITED *** is not usable to me.... because the font is tiny and I cannot read it!

    Wholeheartedly support this! This would make Teams into a usable product for us!

    Agreed. Without search refinements, we get HUNDREDS of hits of unrelated things. Frequently, I abandon the use of Teams Search altogether, and MANUALLY sift through the applicable groups or chats or whatever.

    THINK ABOUT THAT. I am a Software Developer, and I would be ASHAMED of any product of mine where users say "It's easier and better to sift through things manually than to use the search function you've provided!"

    Apologies for such strongly worded feedback. My employer is an all-Microsoft shop, and I really want this platform to succeed and be useable! Right now if I were asked to advise our IT, I'd have to recommend other platforms besides Teams, and that's a shame.

    The Search Functions in Teams are at once too broad and not broad enough!

    There are entire areas such as the wikis that don't get searched.

    Of the things that DO get searched, there is no way to narrow down the hit list, so it is ALWAYS a global search. Sifting through 10,000 hits is no more helpful than having no search at all and having to manually hunt for things.

    So, Microsoft, please add Wikis and other missing areas to the search. BUT THEN PLEASE ADD SEARCH REFINEMENTS SO I CAN MANAGE WHAT GETS SEARCHED!

    [If it were up to me, my company would have abandoned Teams over this issue alone!]

    In general, the Search functions in Teams are not usable. Either:
    * I don't get hits on something I know is there (and I can later confirm the search strings were reasonable and CORRECT)
    * I get hundreds and hundreds of hits from every chat and channel I've ever been in, and there is no way to filter the search to a list of hits that are reasonable to sift through.
