React To and Save Messages

How to React To and Save Messages in Microsoft Teams

Since channel conversations involve multiple people, they can move fast! You can react to messages to give feedback or save messages that you need to refer to later.

React to a Message

Reactions are little bits of feedback that let you reflect how a message made you feel.

  1. Hover your mouse cursor over a message.

    When you hover your mouse over a message, a pop-up menu with some options appears above it. These reactions will let you express whether you like a message, love it, or if you find it funny, surprising, sad, or angering.

  2. Click a reaction button in the pop-up menu.

The feedback is added, and the person that made the post or comment is notified.

Save a Message

If a conversation is moving quickly and you feel the need to return to a specific message later, you can save it so that it’s easier to find when you have time to review it.

  1. Hover your mouse cursor over a message.
  2. Click the More Options button in the pop-up menu.
  3. Select Save this message.

The message is saved and can be found later in your saved messages.

View Saved Messages

Your saved messages list lets you quickly find all the messages you’ve saved and view them in the context of the chat or channel they were originally in.

  1. Click your user icon.
  2. Select Saved.
    React to and Save Messages

    The List pane now shows all the messages you’ve saved, including the chat or channel they were in.

  3. Click a message in the List pane.
