      • Use built in notifications for macOS

        Notifications built into the OS (which all apps I've seen use other than Outlook and now Teams) are more functional and allow for more user control. Most importantly, they honor Do Not Disturb settings, which is critical.

        • 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…

          • 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…

            • 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....

              • 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.

                • Mute a channel - (Mute Chat is complete)

                  I'd love to keep groups/channels in my list, but mute a channel so I don't get those. I get notified whenever some tags a channel eg @General, it's super distracting!

                  Also would like the possibility to mute a group chat, so no sound or mobile notification should be received for a user that chooses to mute some group chat.

                    Mute a channel is still being worked upon. The feature team considers this an important request and are working hard to get it implemented.

                    I will switch this status to “working on it” since this thread will no focus on the Mute Channel.

                    I will keep you posted as I hear more.

                  • Make "Follow this channel" the default setting.

                    Usual Microsoft lack of UI intuition.
                    Channels should be followed by default with the user unfollowing it if they wish.

                    • 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…

                        • Browser/OS independent desktop notifications using HTML5

                          Not sure about the desktop clients because there isn't one available for my operating system. However, the web app is essentially unfit for purpose because I can't tell when anyone is trying to contact me unless I sit there, constantly staring at the app.

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

                              The system tray icon will show a red dot when new activity has occurred.
                              When you see a red dot on the System tray icon and then mouse over the icon, a tooltip will display summarizing if you have a new chat or mention.

                                  • Notification when a team call starts

                                    When someone calls you from a chat it's very obvious, you get a little pop up window which notifies you.

                                    However when someone starts a meeting within a team it's far less obvious - could we have the same sort of banner/notification as a chat call?

                                    • Microsoft Teams download banner / popup needs to be removed

                                      When a user in the Office 365 environment wants to use the web version http://teams.microsoft.com, a popup message is visible at the upper area with a prompt to install the client version:
                                      “Want an even faster, more collaborative experience? Download the desktop app.” By several given security compliance requirements in big IT environments, the users shouldn’t be able to install any additional software at their PCs. This popup is confusing the web-only Teams user and also it makes the software deployment team nervous.

                                      • Notifications within Teams

                                        I'd like to see a notification bubble for new posts (of any type) in the Teams I'm in (yes, I'm already following) just as I can see for chats. It's an extra step for me to have to click through the teams to see if there's new activities. I'd like to be notified as soon as activities happen.

                                        • Scheduled Do Not Disturb, like Slack

                                          Do Not Disturb should block all notifications and I'd love to be able to schedule DND, like on Slack
