  1. jump to conversation from Activity

    I like getting the activity summary and seeing likes and messages. I'd like to be able to get back to the conversation quickly.

    An icon or right click "jump to conversation" would be helpful if it brought me to that conversation with that activity in view.

    we have this!  ·  Suphatra responded

    We have this! Just click on the activity item and it will take you straight there.

    If this is not happening for you, then its a bug. Please let me know!

    Sincerely,
    Suphatra

  2. edited comments not flagged

    There is a way to edit one's own comment - which is good, however, if one edits a comment, it is not flagged as an edited comment. This can lead to people not noticing the edit.

    They are! Just see next to the time stamp of the message — it will say “Edited.”

  3. Teams to display ammount of Teams and Chat post in general not individual comments in channels.

    When you get 20/30 notifications in on team it starts to clog up your activity bar.

    Could this be updated so that you see how many teams have activity in them and when you click on the team you can see more detail about how many posts are in each channel.

    An example would be that on the task bar I see 3 notifications, this would mean that I have 3 teams/chats I need to read. When I open teams one of those could then indicate once I've clicked on a team that there is multiple notifications in separate channels.

  4. Don't keep notifying me. I dismis a reminder (which Outlook had already given me) and it came back. I just turned off Teams notification

    Don't spam me with notifications. Make them behave like all other app notifications. You aren't special. Coordinate with Outlook so I'm not getting notified multiple times for the same event.

  5. Improve message notification

    Having 1 computer 1 phone and 1 tablet with the same team account it happened that I received the notificatin only on one device (the tablet for example) but not on the phone and computer. This induces quite a delay in seeing and acknowlodging the message.

  6. People seeing your message notifications

    Dear Microsoft,

    Could you please make a thing that when you send a message that it shows that each other person has seen the message so that say if they don’t reply at least you can see that they have seen it.

    Kindest Regards,
    Hershdeep

  7. notification contact latest

    Chatt notification shows which contact is chatting, only if using 'Latest' list. Not when using the 'Contacts' list. Would be great to be able to know which contact has chatted even when viewing the Contacts. Also, please make the dot a bit larger. Another idea would be to be able to double-click on the chat-ikon itself to get to the chat in question. See screenshots for example.

  8. Make teams more Transparent.

    When adding a new conversations in teams enable automatic notifications instead of having you tag the conversation.

    Being forced into Teams from Slack because of politics, I´ve noticed our teams are missing out at a lot of conversations in teams. A problem we didn´t have in Slack, cause everybody saw everything and were able to filter out if it was relevant or no and then could disregard it at a glance or answer fast.

    What we notice in Teams is that conversations that wasn´t tagged became unoticed. Which is commonly to forget if you are a bit un the run…

  10. Make an option to get device notifications through the app, but not receive emails through the same email account.

    Right now, it appears in the Team’s app that I can turn notifications on or off. I want to receive all notifications on my iPad I have the app on. But I don’t want to get any emails at all about activity in Teams.

  11. Newsletter for administrators about new versions of teams.

    Newsletter for administrators about new versions of teams.
    Enable / disable mailing from the teams admin panel. If possible then give a link to the beta version immediately.

  12. Remove notifications for muted members

    Notifications for muted members remain at the top of the desktop app. The only way to make them disappear is go to the Settings tab. However, once you leave the Settings area, the notification reappears and won't go away.

  14. Android app notifications too spammy

    Take guidance from Discord and alert on the 1st or 2nd new msg only, not every msg.

  15. Option in conversation to notify all team members for new messages without using @

    For very important issues we need the possibility to notify (push message on mobile) all team members without using the @-sign. The reason simply is: If it is urgent and everyone has to get the message fast people could forget to use the @. And then no one gets a notification.

    An additional option would be helpful to activate something like: Everyone always gets a notification.

  16. Improve Visibility of New Posts

    My list of Teams in the Favorites is growing very long. Sometimes I miss new posts where the team/channel/person is not mentioned, especially in teams that are beyond the bottom of the window (scrolling needed to see the bottom of the list) or where posts are within unfavorited channels. I'm now being forced to favorite all channels just to make sure I don't miss new posts, and that's making navigating around very cumbersome.

    Setting channels to not be favorite trims the list so only high-activity channels are surfaced, but then when there is activity in slow channels, it's easy to…

  17. I find my mobile notifications to be inconsistent. It is hit and miss when the red badge appears to notify me of a new chat message.

    Correct the issue or simplify the notification settings to ensure they are being sent. Because this is being used for business, it is really inefficient and frustrating. Our entire staff is having this same issue.

  18. Notifications are very bad.

    Teams should behave as any apps in this area.

  20. Requires Constant Monitoring

    Microsoft Teams requires CONSTANT monitoring! If someone makes a comment in a channel wall, I do not see it until I log in next. It makes it hard to use as a collaboration tool because, even after I post something, I have to explicitly tag the individuals I want to see it - or email or Skype-message them, but that's how my current process is, so what's the point of Teams in that case?
