Hi Laurie, tx for sharing the FAQ link, 80% of my questions are now addressed :)

Thanks @Eric Deferm - glad that helped.  For the other 20%, please open new discussions & between the community, someone should be able to respond to you with an answer.

Is there a way to do rich formatting?

I don't see a way to configure it in local client settings or O365 admin console settings. It currently doesn't seem to respect any fomatting method I've tried. This is something Skype supports and that I use constantly.

Looks like supporting Markdown is on their backlog marked as a planned feature: https://teamsfeedback.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public-preview/suggestions/16911154-markdown-suppo...


Also if you click the little icon to the left of the post field you get into rich text formatting mode - so if you don't need this for e.g. code snippet formatting with syntax highlighting this may cover your needs.



If Opera Browser uses the same "engine" as Google Chrome, why isn't it supported? It should work without any problem but you're blocking Opera users from using Microsoft Teams...


Hope you change this. Thanks in advance.

I don't see a way to create a new post. 

I'd like to test Teams but do not want an enterprise-wide announcement going out to all users. I'd like to make sure that is the case. 


Thank you. 

Nice FAQ.
Completely off topic, when will SharePoint Pages be able to create expandable list like in that FAQ :p

Hi @Ivan Unger - Great question to ask in the SharePoint Community!

Hi @David Conrad - Go to the Microsoft Teams Discussion Page: https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/Microsoft-Teams/bd-p/MicrosoftTeams.  You'll see a box towards the top of the page 'what do you want to discuss?' - just start typing in that box & it'll open up a new conversation area for you to start a new thread.  Thanks for your contributions!
