    • Add quiet hours to notifications

      I like having notifications on my mobile device, but would like the option to silence notifications for after hours and weekends. Potentially, selectively per channel/team.

        • Unread message count on Chat, Teams, channels

          Right now there is a unread message count badge on the Activity tab icon (I guess you only get that if you have followed any channels?). However I would much rather prefer if the badge was on the Chat and Teams tab icons so I can see where there is activity. Currently collapsed teams are also indicated having activity. Expanded teams should have the same indication.

          Furthermore, the unread activity badge on both the Activity and the application icon count unread channels. I would prefer a message count.

          • Follow and unfollow conversation thread

            Hi,

            This idea is not new. Currently we have a lot of unnecessary notifications and i believe we need flexible options to either get rid of them or setup banner/alert. And we already got "Follow channel" option in the latest update:
            https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public/suggestions/16925461-allow-different-notifications-options-on-teams-and

            I think we should go forward and improve conversation/thread notifications.It's very annoying when you replied to the conversation and then it becomes spamming. You have no option to unfollow this conversation and keep receiving notifications. From the other hand, there are conversations where you either not mentioned directly by @ tag or not replied yet but want to…

            • Sound is too low and other sound problems

              VOLUME:

              The sound is too low!! Most people don't think it's even on. Let us customize the sound level, please.

              CUSTOMIZE SOUNDS:

              Right now sounds are all or nothing. This is not good. For example, you may want to have sound for Calls but not for chat or messages. There is a difference when you need to hear that someone is calling you – versus getting the constant bing/bing/bing on message chat.
              In addition – on commercial skype you could actually set sound notification channel or chat by channel or chat. Some things you want the bing – others it…

              • Notification Sounds and Volumes

                Our company recently switched from Skype to Teams. So far, I enjoy Teams. However, I am having a major problem not hearing the notification sound when I am sent a message. There is no option to change the sound type or notification volume for Teams. I miss a lot of important messages or see them too late because I didn't hear a message, even with my computer volume very high.

                I would like the ability to assign different notification types to conversations/chats/groups/etc. and to be able to control the level of volume at which they sound.

                • Add team wide reminders

                  We have weekly bot reminders currently on Slack and that would be a big advantage to getting our whole team moved over.

                  For example:
                  - Tuesdays at noon: Reminder - team meeting in 30 minutes
                  - Last Friday of month: Finish submitting hours
                  - etc....

                  • Include notifications based on keywords.

                    We need to get notifications based on keywords. For example: I am a subject matter expert for SAP and I like to know when SAP is typed into a channel so I can offer assistance.

                    • Multiple Notifications Bugs

                      Hello,

                      We have been testing Microsoft Teams for almost a week now, while we love the product; however, it is proving to be counter productive when it stops sending notifications, we are using alternative means to notify each other to check messages on MS Teams.

                      What we noticed for example is that if discussions continue in a thread for over a day, no new notifications whatsoever are being triggered. In some occasions, even though we have an ongoing discussion, notifications stop, but only work if you tag the other person, but again, this is not a new thread, so it…

                      • Make new conversation replies more noticeable

                        When a reply comes through on teams, the conversation is bolded to notify you that something is unread. But it's sometimes hard to see the bolded conversations. Simply adding some extra visual like the colored notification bar on outlook would help.

                        • More @mention possibilities

                          Idea spliting off from this one https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public/suggestions/16940059-add-generic-mentions-in-each-channel?tracking_code=1c7742f3e32355a2d76e469ddf0af53e

                          It would be nice to have more options for @mention as suggested in the above issue with @here for giving notification to everyone present (available status).

                          There are many other possibilities as well for example the opposite, something like @notHere (so they will not miss the message when the get back) or @onnline /@offline. You could also have @admin / @ owner and later @guests for external users.

                          Not sure if it's possible already or not but you could allow tagging a different team/channel so everyone that are in both gets a notification.

                          • Native OS X notifications

                            Right now there's two different styles of notifications for me: Native OS X notifications and Teams notifications.

                            It happens quite often that I miss the notifications for Teams because it looks so different from the native notifications which doesn't make me focus on them.

                            Please unify the notification appearance with native notifications.

                            • Visual notification in systray of unread message (for both Mac and PC)

                              When there is an unread message, it would be *very* helpful if the systray icon could have a visual indicator that something is unread.

                              • Notifications are easily missed

                                The channel/team on which the notification has been made should stay more/better/longer visible so that you won't miss one. Slack is currently much better in that sense.

                                  • New Notifications email message

                                    Currently when we receive an email notification it just says this person sent a message but it would be nice if you could see what the message is when you are offline.

                                    Thanks,
                                    Mike

                                    • Can incoming emails sent into a channel generate notifications the same way conversations do?

                                      If I'm following a channel I'd like to be able to receive notifications on ALL activity in that channel. The biggest thing that's missing is the ability to get banner notifications and a number in the Teams icon (like when someone posts a new conversation) for incoming emails to the channel.

                                      We want to have a group of people monitor automated alerts coming into a channel and respond to them but without notifications we have to keep bringing the Teams window up and manually checking it.

                                      • Allow setting to remove message contents in banner alerts

                                        When screensharing or working on the same computer with a co-worker it can be distracting and potentially harmful to show the contents of every new message that a user receives in the banner alert. There should be an option to "Hide contents of banner alert" so that users can still receive a desktop notification, but the contents of the message are not immediately displayed to anyone that happens to be looking at that user's desktop.

                                        • synchronize notifications

                                          When using both the desktop and mobile apps, notifications are not kept in sync. For example, when a notification is cleared on the desktop app, it doesn't remove it from the mobile app (and visa-versa).

                                          Keeping these in sync would make it clear what you've already dealt with and what's still outstanding so that you can easily transition between devices.
