  3. Please add teams notification

    MSTeams is a good system.
    I want to make use more comfortable.
    And I usually use conversation of 'Teams'.
    But the category of 'Teams' only offers when new message reply to my message.
    So I can't notice other persons discussions.

    Please consider to adding a notification of 'Teams' when new message was sending.

  4. Time stamp when each team member views a comment

    We have moved over from WhatsApp and one of the features I used frequently was the information button that told me what time each member of my team viewed a message I posted.

  5. Notifications need to be more obvious - a banner or stronger pings when a new comment is made- items can go hours without being seen.

    Notifications are very weak within the platform. I can go hours and sometimes days without realizing a comment has been added or new discussion post has been made. I have all notification options available turned on and still do not receive banners or emails fro some reason. The system should offer levels of notification where it can almost be an annoyance if you have an unread item. If this tool is supposed to be a one stop shop for communication within your team everything should be done to avoid missing new messages. As it stands currently this is the biggest…

  7. Make alerts or badge notifications available on Microsoft TEAMS.

    Information is getting lost when we don't have notifications coming in. There is a lot of competition for our attention and with MS TEAMS not having notifications, it looses the efficiency that it can achieve. I would recommend to put notifications for all messages coming in as well as badge notifications.

  8. make a notification that doesn't require sound

    I work with a lot of people that are always on the phone. We can't have our sound notifications on. I need a blinking light or some sort of pop up that let's me know I have a new message. Thanks!

  9. sound

    I noticed today that if I set my notification preferences to "Only show in feed," I no longer get any audio notification. This is very difficult to deal with as I cannot have the visual cues popping up as they are much more distracting than an audio noise. This has caused me to have to re-enable the banners which is having a negative impact on my performance.

  10. Teams Download & Conditional Access

    We have enable Conditional Access controls to prevent users from using applications that do support MAM. This include the Teams desktop app. When a user clicks on an email that notifies him/her about being mentioned, the link opens the default browser and propts two things:
    1. Find a compatible app in the Microsoft App Store but Teams is not in the Store so there are no results
    2. Download the Team app but this results in the user wasting time as Conditional Access polices prevent using the app

    I suggest some potential solutions:
    1. Allow the user to choose a…

  11. follow notifications

    When following a channel the notifications (icon in taskbar) for new threads is not working reliably. Please have a look at this as this makes the "follow channel" feature unuseable.

  15. Make it so when you Follow a person or team thread

    Make it so when you follow a person or team thread, that means you get notifications for them. Or if someone tries to use Teams to speak with you, that you actually get a notification that they are despite not having followed them yet. There's been several occasions where a person has tried to speak with me and others alongside me but we never got any indicator that they had sent us an IM or chat. I think Favoriting something should be synonymous with following them.

  17. Desktop application bar continues to flash after message read

    When I receive a message, I click on the desktop app and read, sometimes I'll even reply. Once I minimize the app and continue with my work, the app begins to flash until I click it. There are no new notifications or messages. Once clicked, it flashes two or three more times and stops. This is extremely irritating when trying to work and Teams keeps bugging me for nothing. Please fix this asap.

  20. Archive Notifications

    It is difficult to keep track of what Notifications have been read or responded to. I propose the addition of an archive or hide option to remove Notifications from the list.
