MS Teams Timestamps with Seconds?

PAUL, JAMES 6 Reputation points

Is there a way to see the timestamps with seconds in MS Teams? That would be extremely useful to see when times are being measured in chatrooms and Teams conversations. Also, if we could automatically show the times in the rooms instead of having to hover over each response, that would help when it seems questions have not been answered.

    The timestamp can only display to minutes. I didn’t find a workaround for the display now.

    I have created a feedback about this feature by this link: You could vote for it.

    Microsoft will always focus on customer’s feedback and experience. Some new features would be added to the services based on customers' feedback in the future, and your good ideas will be very helpful for them to improve the service.

    Your time, understanding and cooperation will be highly appreciated.
