  2. warn people mentioning channels or teams with lots of members

    Currently you can mention a team or channel and everyone in the team or channel will get a notification. This can be seen as spam in large teams.
    As its not always clear how many people are members of a chanel or team, giving a warning that the action someone is about to take will notify lots of people, before they post, will help them understand if thats really what they want to do.

  3. Download Improvements

    Download Improvements

    Generally the download experience with Teams is pretty poor and I'm amalgamating suggestions in to one

    - Configuration of download location other than default download folder
    - Download progress and fixing of hanging UI when downloading file
    - Permanent notification to user in chat/team room or even a downloaded management area showing downloaded files with a direct link to open file
    - Ability to open file directly from notification
    - Ability to open folder from all areas download is listed
    - Ability to download to a different one time location from the file hamburger menu

  5. Notification Banner Only on First Message

    Rather than having a notification banner pop up for EVERY message, make it an option that you only get the banner for the first message you receive in a series.

  6. Saved Messages in Activity Feed

    Currently my users get lost looking for saved messages.
    Saved messages should be in your Activity Feed.
    When you save a message it should post a notification on your activity feed and then when you are looking at your activity you can filter for saved messages.

  7. Mute team notifications on channels and teams when team is not favorite

    When you don't want to leave the team, but it is not actively worked on (so, it is not favorite) , there needs to be a option to mute all team and channel atmention notifications from it. I would want to stick in the team so I can be atmentioned when needed.

    Currently, if you unfavorite team you still get notications
    - when somebody atmentions the team (as per documentation)
    - when somebody atmentions a channel that is favorite (even when the team is unfavorited)
    - when somebody atmentions general channel of unfavorited team (since you can't unfavorite general)

  9. Notifications using first word of displayname

    Currently Teams is sending notifications towards other users when they are offline or unreachable. In those notifications the first word of the displayname is being used instead of the full Displayname or just the given (first) name. In large organisations this leads to very confusing funny situations. As an example we use as displayname the last name followed by a comma and then the first name.

    So at the end you get notifications like Hi Van, Van has send you a message.

  10. I want to temporarily turn off notifications "silent mode"

    You need to be able to temporarily turn off the notification sound or turn off the notification banner when you do not want to show the notification, such as during a meeting.

  11. notifications

    I am unable to get any pop-up notifications on my phone from the Teams app. I have checked the following settings: On the app:
    Menu/Settings/Notifications:

    Send Notifications - "Always, even if active on desktop"

    Push Notifications - All selected

    Sound - set on with vibrate

    On the phone:

    Settings/Notifications:

    Teams set to notify

    Advanced:

    Allow Notifications selected

  12. Out of office pop up showing up constantly for all users

    Hi,

    We at work are in a group chat and when someone is out of office, the little grey bar ontop of the chat box keeps showing up with the info that the person is out of office and may not respond.

    You can close it but every time you re-open the chat tab it pops back up.

    This happens for all users in chat (about 20 participants).

    Can we disable this?

    Thanks

  13. Add Notifications Feature to Team Chats

    When you send a message to your team chat, team members don't get any notification. It's so surprising that such a basic feature has been ignored constantly.

    There are some apps that I would like to use with my team or I simply want to make announcements or send a group chat to my team but nobody knows what's going on unless they choose to check the team chat page.

    Please bring this basic feature to Microsoft Teams as it's really frustrating to be unable to notify members of the team of the chat.

  14. Mute notifications when on vacation

    I’d like to mute all notifications while I’m on vacation as simply as stating I’m on vacation.

  15. Better Control Over Notification Sounds

    I've seen this a few different ways but overall notification control could be improved. The following features would earn major points from me:
    - allow me to change notification settings for calls, teams, group chats, private chats individually
    - allow me to change the notification sound for these different categories
    - allow me to change banner behavior

    Those 3 would be great. right now I miss so many messages because the sound isn't loud enough to overcome the volume of other things (namely music) on my computer (I'm on mac). Of course I check my messages from time to time…

  16. Option to Hide Global Banner/Toast Text

    Recently, Teams added the user-proposed feature to hide toast notifications while you are in a Do Not Disturb status. While this is a step in the right direction, I don't find it to be enough. I should be able to hide banner/toast text at the global level, so that the notification still appears, but the message content does not. Currently, my only option is to completely disable all banners, which I don't want to do. There are plenty of use-cases for wanting to hide message content outside of a Do Not Disturb status (I forgot to set my status, paired…

  18. Remove multiple notifications when someone is out of office. This is maddening and completely unnecessary.

    Currently, the out of office setting from Outlook is triggering an out of office pop up EVERY SINGLE TIME we go back into a chat in EVERY SINGLE CHAT that the person who is out of office is in. This is maddening and very distracting. We had a person on medical leave for a month and and single day, multiple times a day, we had to close out the pop up stating that he was out of office. Please provide an option to either only show one time or turn off completely in Teams since we already get the reply…

  19. Respect Focus Assist

    Teams should respect Windows Focus Assist settings. I'm not even sure how apps are allowed to override Windows settings like this.
    I put Windows Focus Assist into Alarms Only mode so I could record screen captures and I Teams kept popping up notifications over my application. I had to completely exit Teams so I could finish my task.

  20. Email Notifications Settings in Android App

    I would like Microsoft to add an option in the Microsoft Teams app settings to customise and change your email notification preferences.

    Microsoft Teams sends you email notifications by default seemingly, however if you are using an Android device there doesn't seem to be a way to turn off or unsubscribe from these emails.

    In the footer of the emails Microsoft Teams sends, it says to unsubscribe in the Microsoft Teams app under Settings > Notifications, however there is no option there to unsubscribe on Android devices.

    I would urge Microsoft to add this option in as a priority, As…
