  1. 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…

  2. 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.

  5. Notify the writer

    When a team member who was mentioned reads a post, the contributing member would like to know.

  6. 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.

  8. 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.

    Would like the status ball to be just a little bit bigger; maybe 50% bigger

  11. 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.

  12. Upgrade Windows notifications experience

    When my Teams application is minimized and I get a message, a notificaiton pops up on my screen. However, if I DON'T click on it and go to the app directly and view the message that created the notification, the popup on the screen does not disappear. Make it so the notification clears, please.

  13. vote for ideas without receiving email updates

    Not a complaint about Teams itself, but this feedback site. I'm happy to vote up existing ideas (and register to the site as I have done), but not a fan of being automatically subscribed to email notifications about it afterwards forevermore. Let us just vote please with no email subscription.

  14. Time format/zone in notification emails

    When I receive emails notifying me about unread activity in channels, the timestamp is in a different format and, what's worse, a different time zone than on my computer.

  15. team activity list based on highest level of activity

    Sort the "Team Activity" not based on every single thing happening, but categorize by likes/replies, etc. Similar to Facebook

  16. When a tab has been edited (excel or any file), indicate that the channel is updated

    For any tab, for example an excel file, if the file is modified at any time, indicate that the channel has an update available. This could include a visual in the channel listing, as well as bolding the tab label

  17. 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

  18. 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.”

  19. 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.

  20. 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.
