Display full message dialog for first post in conversation

Occasional Contributor

The use of the 'Add a subject' field is pretty much essential within a Channel to better separate topics of discussion within the Channel.  This also allows the filter to display conversation threads by Subject.

However, encouraging the user community to complete the 'Add a subject' field is very difficult when the default first message or 'New Conversation' only displays the highly compact message dialog and the user has to select the 'Format' icon from the message bar.  Too many steps results in no-use of the feature.

A setting within Teams' 'Chat' section to display the full message dialog upon selecting the 'New Conversation' button, would go a long way towards ensuring that more conversations than less will actually have a 'Subject'.

Microsoft played with some variations on this, but as you can imagine it's hard to please all. In any case, the best place to put such suggestions is the Feedback portal: https://feedbackportal.microsoft.com/feedback/forum/ad198462-1c1c-ec11-b6e7-0022481f8472
Thanks Vasil. I'm a noob... I've now added the feature request as you recommended. Cheers
