  3. Option Notify Team members when a new channel is created

    We would like to notify the team when a new channel is created.

    We manage small projects and problem tickets using a Microsoft Team. As the number of channels in our team increase it can be easy to miss when a new project or problem channel is created.

    Team member should have the option to enable a notification when a Channel is created. This notification could be implemented as a pop up notification, email, and/or as a card with a button in the General Channel's conversation.

  4. Silence push notifications to mobile device when outlook set to out of office.

    This request is to provide a feature where the teams app installed on a mobile device (iPhone, Android, Windows, etc) to not receive notifications when the person's outlook calendar says OOO for the day or specific time period. This is a grey area since the whole idea is to be informed and "always on" but when on vacation wouldn't want to be disturbed with them and consume unneeded battery life or privacy.

  5. Notifications for activities across all Team that you are a member of. Not just chat.

    Most activities are invisible - the only way to spot new stuff is to look through every Team that you are a member of.

  6. Notifications/ Alerts on anything that happens in Teams

    Notifications are not consistent. They are not always sent to an user. I would like the option for a email to be sent out even if Teams is open on the web or Desktop or on a mobile device. This would guarantee user would be notified by any change that have been made in Teams.

  9. Ability to @tag all members of a team/channel in a message/post.

    Ability to use @everyone or @channel tags to mention everyone on the team or channel in my post.This way, I can ensure that everyone on the team, or specific channel are notified about my message/post (Specifically useful when members have their notification settings are set to "Send me notifications for: Mentions only".).

    we have this!  ·  Suphatra responded

    Just type “@general” in any channel in the team, and it will notify and alert everyone in that team of the message.

  10. Make the BOOKMARK icon more redily accessible

    At the moment, bookmarks are accessed via the profile button. Is it possible to have the option of placing the bookmark ICON and associated link on the same level as the profile and feedback icons?

  12. Better error feedback

    Can we please get some better feedback when an error occures? Like when you try to change the name of a document that is not checked out there is just a little pop up in the right hand lower corner saying 'there is a problem' and that is it.
    While when I open the Team 'SharePoint' in actual SharePoint the error I get doing the same is way more clear and actually states that the document is not checked out so you can't change the name.

    Same when uploading a file that has the same name as a file that…

  13. Too Much Noise

    How is stored conversations and constantly notifying people of their "missed conversations" actually valuable and viable? Technology integrations are great and cool and all, but this is a classic case of enhancing technology because we can, not because we necessarily should. As a result, all this does is foster fragmented communication, and is actually counter productive in the long run. People can get themselves organized outside of these tools. If they can't, well then they are relying too heavily on technology to run their lives for them. There is simply put, TOO MUCH NOISE!

  14. Need ability to mass mark as read notifications. Need ability to only see @ mention directly to your user.

    On android app. Need ability to mark all notifications at once then set to read. Also set so you get notified only for select mentions like your user name or a special group or room you are part of. Right now I am turning off almost all notifications because it is mostly noise and cant filter.

  19. Notify people using Skype for Business when someone posts to a channel thread

    In "Notifications" allow users to set their notification system in Teams to behave like Skype for Business. I.e. for any Teams channel conversations they are in, get a Skype-like notification when someone posts to the thread.

  20. Allow meetings shown in Teams that come from Outlook to bring Outlook's categorization

    Teams shows all the meetings that I have scheduled via Outlook, but it does not show the color-coded categorization that I have applied in Outlook's calendar. If this could come across into Teams, it would help me keep my different project meetings organized.
