  2. notification

    Facebook has a concept of "Turn of notification for this post" on per conversation basis on a post where someone is tagged or added a comment. So people don't get spammed if they choose not to be notified on a certain conversation.

    Currently in Microsoft Teams the Notification settings only allows user to turn it off for all conversations and not on per conversation basis.

  3. Better notifications

    I always miss new chats. Any way to make notifications more obvious? Previously I used Slack and the icon in the dock (I'm on Mac) would hop up and down and show the number of new messages. If I'm not actively looking at Teams, I don't know if there's a new message.

  4. Block notifications on mobile when status is Do Not Disturb

    When status is DND, notifications still come through on mobile (iOS version 1.077.2017072604). Very disturbing when on a phone call.

  5. (Un)subscribe button for threads

    Add an unsubscribe button for threads you would no longer like notifications for, and a subscribe button so you get notified on a thread without having to reply to it.

  7. Unique Notifications for Chat vs. Team Updates

    Being a part of many teams means there are regularly updates being posted to one of them as well as chat messages. I tend to prioritize chat messages as someone is looking for a more immediate response but I find that I am constantly having to check teams because I see the notification in the start bar but the update isn't of relevance to me or a priority. The pop-ups in the lower right window can help but if you are focused or presenting you might miss them.
    I would suggest we have the start bar Teams Icon have two…

  8. Receive Outlook Notification when Tagged in Teams

    When you are tagged in Teams "@JoeSmith.....", receive an email notification. Currently, when someone likes my post, I receive an email notification, but I will not be notified when I have been addressed directly.

    Without this option it has been a struggle to have my colleagues adopt Teams. We are trying to be more dependent on Teams for all our communications, but because we are not prompted to check Teams when something important has been posted, most will simply not check Teams and the message is lost, forcing us to revert to sending all communications through Outlook.

  10. Use Same Notification Sound in iOS App as Desktop App

    You are relying on the default push notification sound on iOS. It would be helpful to have a custom notification sound for Teams notifications so that I know which app is pinging me without looking at my phone. This sort of thing is trivial to implement for an iOS engineer (I know because I've done it before).

    Hopefully you can use the same sound between the desktop and the mobile apps. Thanks!

  11. Add team channel notifications, push to mobile device, show number of unread messages in each Chat and Teams and channel

    Show toast when message is posted to Team channel that is followed.
    Show the number of unread messages in the Icon, on the tabs and on the channel. (mobile and desktop)
    Push the notification to mobile devices.

    We shouldn't have to go look at the channel to see if its bolded. Users want to glance at the icon, if a number exists then they know there are unread messages. They don't want to have to hunt for the unread messages.

    Almost every other team app and social app does this.

  12. Allow Likes in pop-up notifications

    I often want to "Like" a response that I read in a pop-up notification but I cannot do that quickly, I have to launch full Teams app and like the message there. There is a quick reply feature in the pop-up, so I hope you can add a quick "Like" there as well.

  13. Notifications when a member leaves a team

    When one user adds/removes another user to team, we could see a notification within the General Channel. However, when a user or owner joins/leaves a team himself, there is no such notification.
    Feature request: Alert/warning message should be displayed on. Owners should be alerted by email if any of the member leave the TEAMS.

  15. Have sound for incoming calls only

    Teams is barely usable for me due to the very limited sound options - particularly only being able to have 'All' (which is far too distracting as you get a beep for every chat message), or 'Call, mention and chat' (seems to be same as All except if banners are turned off) or 'Off'.

    I cannot have popup banners as they are far too distracting, disabling these also seems to stop 'call mention and chat' working though.

    Can we have a 'Calls' section in the notifications options so we can hear a sound for incoming calls but disable sound for…

  18. select multiple filters in activity

    The filter options under ACTIVY are helpful, but it would be MORE helpful to be able to select MULTIPLE filters and/or define our own filter criteria

  19. ungelesen gelesen - read unread

    man kann sehr schwer erkennen, ob eine Nachricht gelesen bzw. ungelesen ist. Oft muss man lange suchen, das man im Teams die Antwort einer älteren Nachricht findet.

    It is very difficult to see whether a message is read or unread. Often you have to look for a long time that you find in the team the answer of an older message.
