  4. Implement a Meet Now notification

    It would be very convenient if attendees can see a Meet Now notification in the task bar when they are invited in the Meet Now meeting. Currently, we have to request them to join the meeting before starting, and it’s inconvenient.

  5. Please add the Off Work option for Team Status.

    It is helpful to know when an employee is Off Work and not just Away; which is ambiguous at best.

  6. Undo Turn-in

    There should be a prompt that confirms if you really want to undo turn-in. Both for the computer software and the mobile application.

    Accidentally clicking the undo turn-in button could be a problem if the due date for the assignment has already passed. Having a prompt to confirm such act could prevent this kind of problem.

  8. Send notifications before assignments are due

    There are many amazing features on Teams that help many schools learn virtually. It is critical to have platforms like Teams in society today because many schools are not aloud to have students in class and must learn virtually. Since students are using this platform for schoolwork every day, many are thinking of ideas that would make Teams more beneficial to them. One thing that would make Teams better and easier to use is sending reminders before an assignment is due. There have been many times where I have added my work into the assignment but forgot to turn it…

  9. Email notifications using the recipient's MS 365 preferred language setting

    The emails sent by Teams does not currently follow the language the user selected for his Microsoft 365 apps. It is a necessity to allow the notification such as "You have been added to a team in Microsoft Teams" to be sent following the Microsoft 365 preferred language settings.

  10. Option to only display last notification

    To avoid notifications stacking up covering half the screen, add an option to only display the last notification, so it only takes up one square on your screen.

  11. Mark as Read on toast

    I would love to be able to click a "Mark as Read" button on toasts - particularly for reactions. I often have to click a toast and go in and wait for the notification to go away for reactions, and it slows down productivity significantly.

    For example, if someone likes my message, I have to go to that thread and wait for the notification to go away. If I could just click "Mark as Read", I wouldn't have to do all that.

    Thank you very much!! :)

  12. notification in task bar

    New chat message Flash in Task bar: For every new message task bar notification should keep blinking/flash for unread chat message.

    Eg: Even if messages are grouped "Skype for Business" will keep blinking in task bar. Hope this kind of notification is missing in Teams.

  14. About incoming calls during a call

    Depending on the device you use, the ringtone may ring during a call.
    It is good if it can be controlled by the setting of the application

  16. Help Button, "What's New" Notification - Similar to the Activity Bell

    Similar to the Activity Bell, there is a number of new notifications waiting for you in Teams. As Microsoft Teams evolves, it would be great for our users to get notifications within Teams that there are new features. Help Button, What's New is the area I would like to promote.

  17. Notification Sounds

    Please allow a notification option to keep sounds on for calls but off for everything else. Currently, calls and all other are bundled together and can not be toggled when turning sounds off.

  18. Microsoft Teams meeting notification

    Can Microsoft Teams create meeting notifications (i.e., pop up reminders at bottom of task bar on desktop screen before the start of a meeting) like we have seen using Cisco Webex?

  19. Quiet hours for shift workers

    I would like to have more flexible quiet hours, like allowing me to mute notifications in the evening on one week and in the morning on the next week and repeat this.

    In my company we have various working shift, and i currently have to update my quiet hours every week.

  20. Easy access to "Manage Notifications" - model after Skype's "Tag for Status Change Alerts"

    "Tag for Status Change Alerts" was simple on Skype for Business - a right click to add a person and a right click to remove. I don't need a permanent notification setting for a person; it's just a temporary notification so that I know when they are free in the next few hours. Going down multiple levels through Settings is time-consuming and unnecessary. Please add functionality to the "Chat" window or "Contacts" window so this can be done easily and quickly.
