  1. shifts notifications

    SHIFTS: Notifications for upcoming shifts
    StaffHub sent an email to the user assigned to a Shift, to remind them of an upcoming shift. It would be very helpful to have this as an option Teams.

  3. notification sounds

    Right now, the sound notifications make is not very attention-grabbing, and it's the only option. It would be great if you could choose different sounds for different notifications, as you can in Outlook and other Microsoft programs.

  4. Flashing Icon in task bar for unread messages

    Teams icon pinned in taskbar doesn't blink orange anymore when I receive new messages. I cannot find an option to turn this. Was this removed?

  5. Differentiate Notification Icons for @Mentions - Personal, Group, Team. Channel

    @Mentions are very powerful, but end users need a way to quickly scan all of their teams and channels and quickly prioritize tasks/responses. Currently, you see the same designation (a red @ sign) on a channel even though the mention could be just you, an entire Office group, the entire channel, or even the entire team. Each of those should be a different color and end users should be able to change notification (email, banner, etc.) options based on those 4 categories. A personal @mention is likely more pressing and important than an @mention to an entire channel or team.

  6. Better notification control, especially sound options

    Right now (3/5/19 update) the only options for sound notifications are All; call, mention, and chat; Off.

    I want sound notifications for call, but not chat or mention. Grouping calls with chats for sound notifications is odd - calls are usually important but sound notifications for every chat message is excessive.

  7. Keep incoming call notification topper than message notification.

    When you receiving an incoming call,the call notification will be displayed. If someone sends you a message, or you are in a group chat, the new message notification will be always on the top, which prevents you from accepting the call. and you have to wait for all of the messages notification disappear. It is very inconvenient.

  8. Channel notification settings: ability to change default via admin center

    Please add via Teams admin to change the default Channel Notifications for "All New Posts" to Banner and Feed" vs default to "off."
    This is very important vs relying on team members to change this setting themselves per channel.

    Let them change it if they don't want to receive notifications for certain channels. If you have over 30 channels and like 10 different teams, going through them all to change this settings is terrible especially if you NEED the notifications for the majority of them.

  9. Notifications in Activity Feed for Planner Tasks

    Notifications should be created in the Activity Feed for Planner Tasks, as soon as
    1) Comments get created on Tasks that I'm assigned to
    2) a Planner Task gets completed

  10. Default notifications for every channel

    Every channel should have notifications auto-enabled, which could be muted at the user's liking. Muting could be enabled/disabled in the admin center in the event that a channel is of great importance and needs to send out notifications to everyone. In the attached screenshot is the option to "Notify me every time there is a new post in this channel". This should just be automatic.

  11. Automatic DND when presenting

    Automatically set status to Do Not Disturb/DND when presenting or sharing screen like on Skype. It's very inconvenient when banners for personal chat notifications come up during meetings, sometimes the content is not to be shared with others. If not that then allow for the option to not show actual text in the banner notifications.

  12. Settings > Notifications: Notification sounds need to allow more options

    “Notification sounds = Off” will disable all sound notifications, including disabling the Call notifications. What I’d like to do is to disable Mention and Chat notification sounds for example, but keep Call notification sounds. This can't be done at the moment as only 3 options are available:
    All
    Call, mention and chat
    Off
    We would need additional options to cover all use cases.
    Thanks

  13. Teams does not respect "Do Not Disturb" on MacOS.

    When I set my Mac to "DO NOT DISTURB" Teams still pops up notifications. This is really annoying when I'm sharing my screen in a meeting.

  14. Deriving first names from display name is a bad idea

    For sorting reasons our company uses display name in the format last name followed by first name; e.g. "Ponguillo Intriago Ronald Alberto"

    In Teams, email and activity feed show silly information such as "Ponguillo posted". Or even "De posted" for "De Feyter Kim" (De Feyter = last name).

    In order to send a notification with a “friendly” intro referring to the first name of the submitter In Teams, you ASSUME that the first chars up to the first space is in fact the first name. It clearly is not if the display name is in the format last name +…

  15. Notification sound: Sounds need to be much louder AND we need to be able to choose from several different sounds, as we could in Slack.

  16. Phone ring

    Please add the device choice for incoming call ringing,
    as it was possible in skype business.

    Computer loudspeaker ring, and not that the ringtone arrives in the headphones.

  17. notifications

    On MacOS, please consider the following, or at least make them options:

    1. Notifications should use the standard Mac notifications instead of custom ones.

    2. Notifications cause dock icon to bounce continuously until addressed.

    3. Notification appear regardless of which virtual desktop is visible.

    4. Notifications remain visible until addressed.

    Any or all of the above would improve notifications immensely. I'm currently missing messages because the notifications are not seen....forcing me to continually monitor the application manually.

  18. DND should be DND

    It would be greatly appreciated and helpful if the DND feature is just that. It would be helpful for users trying to send messages while in DND to get a response stating we are unavailable or not accepting messages at this time. The notifications does not respect this feature.

  19. Provide option to suppress "Joined the Team" and "Left the Team" messages in Org-Wide team

    Please provide an option for administrators to suppress the "Joined the Team" and "Left the Team" messages that are automatically added into the conversations stream. This would be a nice feature in any Team, but is really important for the Org-Wide team.

    Because of the nature of our business model, we have a high turnover / churn of employees -- so every day there are multiple messages about who joined the team and who left the team. This noise causes the actual content in the General channel of our org-wide team to be pushed off the page. We try to…
