  1. Mobile client notification separate from desktop - or priority feature

    It would be a nice scenario to have notifications be prioritized and unique when on mobile. At the desktop client, following several channels is feasible. However, on the mobile device the signal-to-noise ratio can be untenable. A priority/mobile notification mechanism would be appreciated.

  2. Need more VISIBILITY and heightened NOTIFICATION

    Instead of giving the chat tabs a bold font as notification, it would be much better to give it a bright highlighted tab such as light green. Plus channels that are under the "x more channels" tab are always hidden and not visible even when there are notifications waiting. During deployments, my team needs to be a part of many different rooms and it's extremely hard to keep up when the notifications are barely present. We can't control their rooms but it would be amazing to be able to control the notifications. There should be a highlight color option along…

  4. Show Recurring Outlook reminders in a specific MS Team Channel

    We have a group calendar for our team that contains loads of repetitive reminders for the group: things to be checked, tasks to be completed... It would be great if those reminders would also come up in a specific channel for in MS Teams, so that our team members can tick them off as the tasks have been dealt with.
    I know that each channel has their own e-mail address (great!), but if you use that as part of a reminder in Outlook Calendar, the first message is received in the MS Teams channel, but none of the recurring reminders…

  6. Can you RECPECT the "Turn Off' notifications of Apple?

    Apple has an option to turn off notifications and it's been override by MS Teams, it's very annoying. The tool that apple provides is very useful specially people that like notifications but wants to turn them off for meetings. I don't want to turn off all the notification option you have listed overtime I go to a meeting.

  8. Notification on Open App in Task Bar

    It would be helpful if the open application within the task bar would blink when an incoming message has arrived. As it stands, if you don't have the sound enabled, you can't tell if someone has messaged you while you are navigating through other programs.

  12. Option Notify Team members when a new channel is created

    We would like to notify the team when a new channel is created.

    We manage small projects and problem tickets using a Microsoft Team. As the number of channels in our team increase it can be easy to miss when a new project or problem channel is created.

    Team member should have the option to enable a notification when a Channel is created. This notification could be implemented as a pop up notification, email, and/or as a card with a button in the General Channel's conversation.

  13. Notifications for activities across all Team that you are a member of. Not just chat.

    Most activities are invisible - the only way to spot new stuff is to look through every Team that you are a member of.

  14. Notifications/ Alerts on anything that happens in Teams

    Notifications are not consistent. They are not always sent to an user. I would like the option for a email to be sent out even if Teams is open on the web or Desktop or on a mobile device. This would guarantee user would be notified by any change that have been made in Teams.

    we have this!  ·  Suphatra responded

    Just type “@general” in any channel in the team, and it will notify and alert everyone in that team of the message.

  20. Better error feedback

    Can we please get some better feedback when an error occures? Like when you try to change the name of a document that is not checked out there is just a little pop up in the right hand lower corner saying 'there is a problem' and that is it.
    While when I open the Team 'SharePoint' in actual SharePoint the error I get doing the same is way more clear and actually states that the document is not checked out so you can't change the name.

    Same when uploading a file that has the same name as a file that…
