    This is the most frustrating thing about Teams, especially for developers. I am constantly fighting Teams to try to get it to format the message the way I want.

    In Slack, it was simple. You just create the correct markdown and press send. If you made a mistake, you can just edit you message.

    In Teams, it is a nightmare. The parser is constantly trying to guess what markdown to apply and where you want to start and end markdown. You cannot paste markdown into the chat. There is a high latency (lag) that prevents markdown from apply if you're not typing slowly and your cursor ends up getting stuck inside inline code blocks.

    What the heck Microsoft?

    Everybody else: Implements actual markdown parsing after message is posted
    Microsoft: Let's implement a real-time markdown guesser!! Yeah but make sure it is laggy, frustrating and only works 25% of the time!!!

    If I had any say, I would be moving the company to Slack or Hipchat ASAP.
