I work in the China office, and we keep reverting to WeChat because it offers this feature which is super useful. It is missing from Teams.
I want to be able to forward a group of messages in my private chat with someone else not in the chat. This often happens when a problem comes up in the discussion and I realized I have already discussed a similar issue. Therefore, I want to share a section of my chat history to them quickly.
❌ My current workarounds: Option 1: Copy + paste the messages one by one to the other chat. Option 2: Take a long screenshot of the chat history and share the image.
✅ Suggestion: Allow people to cherry-pick messages in their chat and forward them in a bundle.
There are accessibility problems. E.g. I am having some of the 50 year olds in SSW reporting that they cannot even use the SharePoint app. Reason – they can’t read anything! Suggestion #1: below Suggestion #2: below
Note: it is not only the SharePoint app
❌ Same issue on the Dynamics app
✅ The Teams app has fixed this issue
✅ The Outlook app has fixed this issue
Suggestion #2 is magic UX – see it is broadly fixed (❌ the top “News” is weird)
I am not sure if this is an edge case…. I’d love to know how others work.
On some calls – for example a managers meeting – you want to temporarily add in someone just for a quick question. You don’t want them to remain after the call. It is kind of a security or privacy issue if you don’t remove them.
So I find it really annoying when I forgot to remove them after the call and they probably find it annoying when they get our messages after the call. So I would prefer not to have to remove the person manually.
Suggestion – next to “Add people”, I think it would be really cool to add a person via an option “Add people (temporarily)”.
We all love Microsoft Teams and I think this UI looks like it is about to be clever, but it is not.
When starting a new chat… If I pick 1 person… please attempt to guess the 2nd person I will add to the chat. People are often related and I know it would be a nice for all Microsoft Teams users if the people picker showed the like people that I will chat with together.
Today, it doesn’t matter who I pick first in the chat, the search always shows the same people.
Please pick who I will probably pick next … it should change the people based on who I am adding.
More info: Delve tells me who I talk to a bit, that would be ok. But when you talk to a manager, you probably are going to pick another manager. When I talk to an Azure DevOps engineer, I am probably going to pick another Azure engineer (not a React developer).
