Does anyone know if Microsoft Teams can do any of these things yet?

 

1. Display a list of conversations by subject/ topic name

2. Reply to a specific post

3. Quote content from a previous post

4. Display a list of threads within a conversation by poster name and date sorted

5. Display a list of posts by title/ topic - date sorted or poster sorted

6. Export a conversation to OneNote.

7. Move a conversation to another channel

8. Archive a conversation

9. Assign tags to a conversation or post

10. Get a link to a conversation

11. Search within a channel
12. Reply to a post from Outlook email.

Solution
1. Theres no filter by topic! You can search for messages with keywords so hashtag can be used for this scenario! No built in support for them though
2. Yes, you can reply to posts
3. No quote
4. Yes! By search and filter
5. Limited! See nr 4.
6. Only copy/paste
7. It’s on the roadmap! Not currently
8. No, you can archive a team but not a channel conversation! You can ”Save” it as kind of a bokmarknaden for later reference
9. No, not a built in feature
10. Yes
11. Yes
12. No, you can use email connectors to get Mail in a channel and answer there but not the other way around! I guess maybe you can built something based on Graph API and flow, but nothing else
Wow, thanks for the fast answer. I'm trying to figure out if teams is suitable for having discussions related to development of a product instead of using email.

@alphabeta I'm not sure I agree with all of @adam deltinger replies.

 

1. Display a list of conversations by subject/ topic name

 

This is what channels are for, they represent topics, so everything related to one topic will be in the one place.

 

2. Reply to a specific post

 

You reply to a thread, not to a specific message in a thread (PS in Yammer you can reply to a message)

 

3. Quote content from a previous post

 

You can format text as a quote, but copy/paste the previous content (PS Yammer)

 

4. Display a list of threads within a conversation by poster name and date sorted

 

Threads/conversation are the same thing really in Teams. You can search with a filter by subject, team, channel, poster name, @mention etc.

 

5. Display a list of posts by title/ topic - date sorted or poster sorted

 

You can search by all of these, but you can't organise the channel by anything other than more recent replied. As channels should represent topics, then yes.

 

6. Export a conversation to OneNote.

 

You can copy/paste into OneNote

 

7. Move a conversation to another channel

 

No, but FYI this is a Yammer feature

 

8. Archive a conversation

 

No, you can archive a team, and it's in the roadmap to archive a channel

 

9. Assign tags to a conversation or post

 

No concept of #tags like in Yammer

 

10. Get a link to a conversation

 

Yes

 

11. Search within a channel

 

Yes


12. Reply to a post from Outlook email.

 

No PS Yammer

Thanks both. I'll give teams another try.
