    This IS an issue Microsoft...many of use spend a lot of our day in programs other than what's offered in Office365. PLEASE give us the option of showing our status and having it stick for at least 8 hours.

    We have had Teams upon Teams upon Teams being created to "sandbox" members and guests. We settled on limiting the exponential creation of Teams by using private channels. Whoa... problem solved!

    Wait, wait, what? We now can't add planner? Oh, we can't schedule a Team's Meetings privately in the channel complete with meeting notes and such as with non-private channels? Oh, we can't use tags in private channels? There is much more...

    I fear many who get terribly confused and frustrated will simply go back to emailing attachments, emailing, and texting - and treat Teams like it's just a Zoom or WebEx alternative. Many I know are close to that now. Teams is wonderful in so many ways and where I now do at least 50% of my work communication, but Microsoft has created a behemoth that for the average user just becomes too much to handle if you're work entails multiple Teams and Channels (I'm a member of 49 active Teams right now, for example). So, they'll just send an email...and I for one don't want to go back there. We must have flexibility in shifting things around Microsoft, or many will give up and do their business another way.

    Hey Microsoft: I know you have to deal with the significant "prioritization of other work items" but moving or copying data between Teams and channels is getting to be a ridiculous item of urgent need. I am the owner of member of dozens of Teams now, with channels in the 100's. Considering the ease with which all my coworkers (across the globe) can create Teams, the proliferation of Teams and Channels has become a joke of epic proportions - particularly when everyone went home to work due to COVID-19. We are constantly trying to consolidate and unify our approach to our work - and I am running up against this nightmare daily now. PLEASE make it possible to transfer entire channels complete with all data in the conversations (posts) to different Teams...or I simply have to start lobbying our leadership to use something else.

    You've created a wonderful tool that has no doubt seen enormous growth, but you've also made it easy to create communications and data organization nightmares for your users. People are coming to terms with the fact that Teams much more than "Zoom" or "Chat" and as they dive into the usage of Teams and Channels - but as we come to terms with all the options, we're proverbially train-wrecking ourselves. We MUST have the ability to organize and re-organize Teams and Channels. Please, make this a priority. Or, ultimately many are going to go back to text, email, email attachments, and dropbox (or worse).

    As the use of Teams continues to grow, this is becoming critical for many. Please move off backlog.

    Yet another oddity easy to do with Skype for Business, but vacant in Teams. Please add, Microsoft. Teams is great but it's very interesting how many "standard" features you chose to add in Skype for Business that are simply missing in Teams with nothing but crickets anywhere we choose to raise the issues (in spite of all the very good features Teams has, of course).

    Hello Microsoft? You gave us this in (at least android) mobile long ago, but no response at all to all these (over 5K now) requests here at UserVoice to add it to the desktop?

    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.

    We are now preparing for the roll out of Tasks in Teams which will integrate additional features integrating To-Do and Planner. This includes additional list views that also extend to tabs in teams. Further announcements about additional integration in our overall Tasks coherence effort will follow.

    You can follow the rollout via our Roadmap item: https://www.microsoft.com/microsoft-365/roadmap?searchterms=57213. To see a preview of the experience, please visit https://youtu.be/rTATVGroEsQ.

    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.
