  1. 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.

  4. Reactions to messages to clear when you view the conversation

    When someone reacts to the message you send within a conversation, to clear the notification of that reaction you have to click on the click on the activity tab. However, I believe the reaction being "unread" should clear when you view the conversation the reaction is in. A small issue but would improve workflows

  7. Add option to turn off "do you like teams" and call quality feedback.

    The Teams app is constantly asking me if I "like the teams app", and full-screens a call quality feedback after most calls. This is highly annoying and distracting. I always get mad at it and say no. Not because it asked, but because it continually asks over and over again like an incessant child with histrionic personality disorder.

    Please make it stop!!!!

  8. 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…

  9. remove urgent notification feature

    The new "Urgent" delivery option is a horrible feature, and is only good for annoying the recipient. Please remove it or give us the ability to turn it off. Or at least give the recipient a way to ignore it or mark it not urgent. Similar to outlook emails, just because the sender marked an email as "high priority" doesn't mean it's high priority for the recipient, and they can edit the email properties to remove the priority flag.

  10. 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

  11. New Notification Type - Sound Only

    Users need to hear a notification sound when new chats come in, but do not want an email / banner coming in because they are continuously sharing screens with others and confidential information is being seen if the Teams app is running and banners are on.

    Currently - Sound set to All - but if Chat is set to off, we don't get a Sound. The only way we hear a sound is if Chat is set to Banner or Banner Email.

    We need an option to set Chat and other notifications to Sound Only

    So options should be:

    Banner …

  12. Enable/Disable Notifications for all users at Admin Level

    It's frustrating having to instruct users/manually enable notifications for channels they create. More administrative features to allow admins to enable/disable features such as Notifications for all users would be really helpful.

  13. Notification when a document has been edited

    There seem to be multiple requests for this type of a notification, but I'm adding a new one so that I can be more clear than some of the other comments.

    We collaborate on multiple documents. We circulate them to several people on the team. Currently, the only way we know if edits were made (by multiple people) is if we open in the desktop app and under the Review tab select the option to show markup by specific people. This is time-consuming. We'd love a notification in the Team letting us know that a document has been edited.

  14. Turn off message preview in notification toast

    Currently, when I receive a message, a preview of this message is displayed in the notification toast. As we will be using Teams at work, it would be great for privacy if I had the option to turn off these previews, so the notification toast will just say "New Message from XY"

  15. 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.

  17. Notifications on Announcements

    An announcement in a channel doesn't notify the channel members unless you @Mention them. This should surely be automatic when an announcement is posted.

  18. Flashing Task Bar Button for Notifications

    Personnally, when a new chat message came in, I don't see the small red round number increased easily. I need something to catch my attention more strongly. Banner or email is not enough for me and some collegues.

    What if we can have the task bar button get flashing has it was working on Lync in 2010's approx? This was pretty cool to catch the attention of the user's eye quiclky about something new in a chat...

  19. Clear All Activities

    There should be an opportunity to clear all activity notifications with one button rather than clicking through all activities.

  20. 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.
