  1. Upcoming Meeting Indication

    I am looking some type of hint on the Teams UI and Team Status bar icon indicating any upcoming meeting this would help a lot. I love the feature of representing Calendar in Teams, just that notifications should be better.

  2. Notification on file activities

    I would like to see notification settings on file activities. We are using "Alert me" feature within SharePoint Online lib/OneDrive lib and but would like to see this setting as part of Team's notification configuration.

  4. Sidebar icon notification opens with unread in view when clicked

    Open Channel or Chat that triggered the push notification on the sidebar icon when that icon is selected.

    e.g. for a new Chat notification (or Teams in reverse), clicking the sidebar icon opens that Chat (or Channel) in view rather than having to seek through an additional list for a BOLD item often overlooked in the plethora of tiny text.

    Side notes:
    - the chat preview line should be optional
    - chat icons should be optional
    - new/unread chats should blink/flash from highlight to not highlighted until read

  6. Automatically clear activity when the activity is viewed without requiring switching to the activity page

    I get a pop up notification of a new message in a channel.
    I alt-tab to teams. I'm already in the channel, so I see the new message.
    Why does 'Activity' still have a number telling me I haven't seen this new message? Don't make me switch to the activity page to clear the indicator. Clear the indicator automatically when Teams gains focus with the channel that has new activity already selected.

  8. Close Notifications Properly

    In Windows 10, when I get a notification from Teams, if I click into Teams to reply too quickly, it will not clear the notification.

    Example:
    I receive a chat and get my notification properly but do not interact with it. I click straight into Teams and being typing a reply but the notification stays up and the Teams icon on the task bar still flashes orange.

    I keep my task bar collapsed so when the notification comes and brings up my task bar, it covers the chat bar and all the option underneath it resulting in me having to…

  9. Chat indicator

    Would be useful if there was an indicator on the Team icon, when you have missed conversations (from within a Team Channel) just like you get on the Chat icon.

  10. Simultaneous Notifications despite settings

    Even though I have my Android settings on "only notify when inactive on desktop," for the past few days my phone buzzes when I get a Teams notification regardless of if I am using the desktop version or not. This is not supposed to happen unless you're inactive for 3 minutes or more on your desktop, but it's literally every time I get a chat right now, which is driving me crazy. Please fix this bug!

  13. Autofollow the channels to get notifications

    It's better every team member to follow the channel automatically (as a default) and if he (she) decides not to receive notifications can unfollow

  14. Showing wrong conversation when new messages arrive

    When a new message arrives and I click on the toast, Teams shows me the last conversation I looked at and not the conversation the new message arrives in, so I spend a few moments re-reading and looking for the new message.

    When a new message arrives the window's titlebar icon shows the number of new messages, but the text still shows the name of the conversation showing, which is confusing when your windows taskbar shows the window titles too.

  15. Kontrolle beim Chatt und Team

    Es müsste beim Chat und in der Gruppe eine Möglichkeit geben um zu sehen wann welches Teammitglied die Info (Nachricht) gelesen hat. ZB.: sende ich eine Nachricht in die Gruppe und kann nachvollziehen zu welchem Tag und Uhrzeit welches Teammitglied diese Nachricht gelesen hat.

  16. notifications

    Teams notifications SUCK. At a minimum there are two things that you must do to make Teams chat useful as an IM tool:
    1) Keep the notification banner up until it is acknowledged. It currently disappears after a few seconds, and if I don't see it, it's gone.
    2) Configurable sound. The current sound is hard to hear.

  18. Office 365 Service Health Notifications

    With the removal of the RSS feed for the Office 365 service health, we have no way of pushing those advisories and incidents out to our helpdesk team.

    I would like a way to push the these things into a specific team chat channel to increase team awareness and visibility.

  19. pop up notifications

    The web version doesn't show pop ups outside of the window itself. Currently you have to be actively looking at the window in order for pop ups to appear. If I am in another browser tab or the browser is minimized I have no idea if someone has messaged me or not.

  20. Changing the default time that Microsoft Teams client is detected as inactive and e-mailing alerts

    Microsoft Teams client has an alert function when the client status has been detected as inactive. To enable this function, we need to sign out from the client or keep Teams client non-operative state more than an hour consecutively.

    I would like to change the notification timing to be optional, not 1 hour default setting. It would be fine when I always operate Microsoft Teams, but I sometimes need to send an immediate e-mail alert, so allowing to change alert timing could improve work efficiency.
