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.
Now that Microsoft employees are forced to use Teams, they themselves will realize that the Markdown support is horrendous.
Just reopen this feature request now, and save your other employees the time to find it themselves or create a duplicate.
