  1. Chat Notification doesn't recognize Popped Out Window

    When I have a chat window Popped Out and I receive a notification, I'll click on it but it opens the chat in the main teams screen and cause any of my apps or windows that I was working on (In Teams) to close. It would be nice if Teams recognized that you had that specfic chat "Popped Out" and would open just that small window.

  2. Make the "Thumbs Up" a chat instead of "Activity" notification

    It's time consuming and annoying to have to click on Activity to get rid of the notification for a Like/Thumbs up. It's very easy to give a thumbs up on the mobile and desktop app. Shouldn't need to go to Activity to acknowledge the Like.

  4. sound notification

    There is no sound notification when a message is sent inside a Team, like there is when you message a Group from Chat. The Banner and small red notification on the TaskBar is not enough to alert Team members they have a message.

  5. Identify Connectivity Issues from others in a Meeting

    When you're in a meeting and someone else is having connectivity issues, all the users in a meeting could have impact on their experience and they will not receive any kind of notification because they don't have connectivity issues. On this scenario, the user experience is deteriorated and cause dissatisfaction using Microsoft Teams. With a message that "someone else" (keeping user privacy) is having connectivity issues and could impact user experience, will decrease the perception that Teams is not reliable or don't have a good performance.

  6. Allow users to mute @team mentions for org-wide teams

    We're finding not all users like to receive @team mention notifications. This is especially annoying when an Org-wide team is created.

    The only course of action we have to stop people receiving @team notifications is to completely remove them from the Team. So this is what we're doing.

    One-by-one as people request it, we remove user's access to a Team just because they are unable to turn off @team mention notifications. This means the user looses all access to the content in the Team and related services, like files in SharePoint.

  7. You need the ability to mute chat sound notifications, right now the only option is to mute both chat and call sound notifications

  8. Channel name mention notifications in Teams

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):
    Microsoft Teams のチャネル宛てのメンションの通知について
    Channel name mention notifications in Teams


    ■Description(内容):
    現在、表示されているチャネルに、"チャネル宛てのメンション (@channel)" を行うと、アクティビティ (最新情報) に通知が届くが、非表示のチャネル宛てに、"チャネル宛てのメンション (@channel)" を行うと、アクティビティ (最新情報) に通知が表示されないため、非表示のチャネルであっても通知が届く機能の拡充を要望いたします。

    Currently, for displayed channels, if you use the “Channel mention (@channel)”, a notification is delivered in Activity (Recent) but if you do the same for hidden channels, no notification is shown in Activity (Recent), so please make this work for hidden channels, too.

  9. Enable @Mentions on documents within the TEAMS app and notifications sent to email and activity feeds

    It would be great to have the ability to @mention users on documents from within the TEAMS app and have notifications sent to both their activity feeds and an email sent in notification. Currently, we're only able to use @mentions when opened in the online or local versions of an Office documents as it does not work within TEAMS. The attached document shows the green arrow from an online comments and the second arrow (yellow) when made in TEAMS does not work. Thanks

  11. Allow us to change/customize the notification sound in Teams.

    Please allow us to customize the sound for Teams notifications. With multiple people working in an office/home it's impossible to identify who is receiving the notification.

  12. Settings > Notifications: Notification sounds need to allow more options

    “Notification sounds = Off” will disable all sound notifications, including disabling the Call notifications. What I’d like to do is to disable Mention and Chat notification sounds for example, but keep Call notification sounds. This can't be done at the moment as only 3 options are available:
    All
    Call, mention and chat
    Off
    We would need additional options to cover all use cases.
    Thanks

  13. All notifications dismisses if bottom one is closed

    Sometimes a user gets many messages pop notifications and the pile on each other. It has to be either manually closed each one or wait for few seconds to disappear. What if the bottom notification is closed and it closes all? This is very annoying when presenting/sharing screen and when can't afford to mute the chat either.

  14. Additional Do Not Disturb styling

    When in Do Not Disturb, not only mute pop-up notifications, but also disable styling to bold and highlight unread content in chats and Teams. Even without the pop-up notifications, these style changes can be very distracting.

  16. 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.

  17. Notify of messages within Teams the same as it does with a Chat

    When you send a Chat to someone, it puts a little red dot/number by Chat. We need this to happen for our Teams as well. We are missing important messages within our Teams, because we don't know someone has posted in there. The current system of just bolding the Team Channel isn't effective; if you accidentally click on the Channel, the bolding goes away. We need something more lasting.

  18. Turn off notifications while being Out of Office

    Turn off notifications in Android and iOS Teams app when the user's current status is "Out of Office".

    This status appears when the user has an Outlook calendar appointment with "Show As" set to "Out of Office".)

    Attached Screenshot of a user who is out of office.

    Impact - User can actually enjoy being on vacation or out of office without being interrupted by work.

  19. Disable chat banner notifications when chat window is active

    When a chat is your active window, whether a pop-out chat or directly in the Teams app, chat banner notifications should be disabled (regardless of settings). The chat banner is disruptive and can hide the text in the actual chat.
