  1. Differentiate Notification Icons for @Mentions - Personal, Group, Team. Channel

    @Mentions are very powerful, but end users need a way to quickly scan all of their teams and channels and quickly prioritize tasks/responses. Currently, you see the same designation (a red @ sign) on a channel even though the mention could be just you, an entire Office group, the entire channel, or even the entire team. Each of those should be a different color and end users should be able to change notification (email, banner, etc.) options based on those 4 categories. A personal @mention is likely more pressing and important than an @mention to an entire channel or team.

  2. Allow 365 Admin to Define Default Notification settings in Teams.

    It would be nice to let the Domain Admin have control what the default setting are in teams.
    Users can changed them but let the admins change and override with one time Reset. Like a GPO Preference.

    Why?
    Let’s say the users are not ready for emails and Banners and users are freaking out about the number of Alerts from Teams to Outlook. The Admin could reset the setting for all users to Banner only. This would let users change it to email and banner, but the admin could find a setting that works best for the company of users.

  3. I want a separate option for sound notifications for calls and messages

    I want a separate option for sound notifications for calls and messages. The current "Notification sound" includes "Call, mention, chat" as one option.

  4. Allow 3rd party apps to have notiifications directly in Teams App when added

    When adding a company PowerApp to Teams to show up as its own icon to allow when new things are added to put a circle with a 1 in it notifiying the Teams user that something new has been posted in the app. The attached files showes the side bar in teams with Custom Apps Add to the top. I want notifications like Teams and Chats to appear on those custom icons above.

  5. Keep incoming call notification topper than message notification.

    When you receiving an incoming call,the call notification will be displayed. If someone sends you a message, or you are in a group chat, the new message notification will be always on the top, which prevents you from accepting the call. and you have to wait for all of the messages notification disappear. It is very inconvenient.

  6. Please change the notation when users join teams using a code

    Please change the notation when users join teams using a code


    ■Description(内容):
    コードを利用してユーザーがチームに参加した場合、次の表記となります。

    <チーム所有者> が​ <ユーザー> をチームに追加しました。

    しかし、チーム所有者が複数人いる場合、コードを発行した所有者以外の名前が表示される場合があり、業務上混乱を招く場合があります。

    そのため、表記を次のように変更してほしい

    チーム所有者 <ユーザー名> が発行したコードで <ユーザー> をチームに追加しました。

    If users join teams using a code a message will be displayed in the following manner.

    <Team owner> has added <User> to the team.

    However if there are multiple team owners, there are situations where an owner that did not issue the code gets displayed, and thus creates a situation where operations gets confusing.

    So we hope that the message will be changed in the following manner.

    <User> has been added…

  8. Provide option to suppress "Joined the Team" and "Left the Team" messages in Org-Wide team

    Please provide an option for administrators to suppress the "Joined the Team" and "Left the Team" messages that are automatically added into the conversations stream. This would be a nice feature in any Team, but is really important for the Org-Wide team.

    Because of the nature of our business model, we have a high turnover / churn of employees -- so every day there are multiple messages about who joined the team and who left the team. This noise causes the actual content in the General channel of our org-wide team to be pushed off the page. We try to…

  10. Automatically update status/location (ie working from home/in office) based off location

    It was nice in Skype that it would automatically update to my default status "In Office" when at my work location or to "Working from Home" when at my home location. I switch back and forth between the two locations every day so now have to type in a new status/location every morning when I log in.

  11. Verify and set the notification setting for multiple channels altogether in the Teams app

    I would request a feature to verify and set the notification setting for multiple channels altogether in the Teams app, because we need to verify the setting for channels one-by-one at the moment and it’s going to be a hard work for admins when the channels get increased to a large number. So, it would be very convenient if we could check and set notification setting for multiple channels at the same time.

  12. Location of Banner Notification

    It would be great to be able to move the notification banner. It always pops up in the bottom right and often covers things that I am typing. I never use the top right corner - would love to move them there.

  14. Teams does not respect "Do Not Disturb" on MacOS.

    When I set my Mac to "DO NOT DISTURB" Teams still pops up notifications. This is really annoying when I'm sharing my screen in a meeting.

  15. Send notifications to multiple devices regardless of presence

    Currently, if you are using Teams on multiple devices (e.g. mobile and desktop app), notifications will be sent to one or the other depending on your presence.

    Please can you provide an option to send notifications to all devices, and clear them on all devices if a notification has been viewed on one?

  16. Stop toast notifications, but keep flashing icon in taskbar for notification.

    TEAMS should provide option in settings to disable the toast notifications, but keep the flashing icon in taskbar active. It's very annoying to have a notification pop up in bottom right corner of screen for every single message. Yet still useful to be notified by the flashing icon.

  18. 911/112 Emergency Calling Notification integration with Flow/PowerAutomate

    Currently 911/112 Emergency notification is in Teams only and only to individuals or distribution groups. Would be nice to also add email notification or post a message to a channel so we can use Flow / Power Automate to expand further notification and start incident management workflows and also trigger external emergency notification systems. A specific trigger for this would be even better.

  19. Cross Organization Notifications

    It would be great if I could receive notifications while I'm in a different organization in teams.

    Say there are two organizations 'A' and 'B' while i'm in organization 'A' I won't receive any notifications from organization 'B'. This leads to me easily missing notifications.

  20. I'd like the notification for new message on the task bar to blink - apparently it just lights up on the app icon. Easy to miss messages.
