  1. Add sounds to Team/Group chat

    Currently we get SOUND notifications only for one-to-one chats and not for group chats. Pls enable SOUND notifications for group chats also.. really important for us for timely engagement with one another

  3. 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.

  4. At least on CHATs, would be nice to have a "Mute for X minutes" feature.

    There are some Chat Groups that I’m a part of, where team members may initiate a Chat session, but then once it concludes, a handful of members will continue on
    With the chat for quite some time afterwards – of which I’m then bombarded with the pop-up notification on my task bar for every exchange of their conversation for the next 30 minutes.
    (or only 5 of the Members need to discuss a topic so the Chat is initiated – I’m not needed – and it’s the same situation).
    All valid uses of CHAT – but I don’t need to…

  5. customize specific chime sounds per chat, per channel, per event, and per audio channel

    Add the ability to assign different sounds to different channels & chats and various events. (Imagine you monitor 6 channels, but two of them are really important. You could set a "ding" for one, and a "buzz" for another.)

    Add the ability to ring these sounds for different events such as:
    * new chats
    * messages with you @mentioned
    * calendar reminder
    * posts from a specific contact
    * participant joins & leaves

    Lastly, be able to decide which audio devices they should play on: headset, internal speaker, all, etc

    This suggestion is primarily directed at desktop clients for the…

  9. 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?

  10. Mute conversations for mobile

  12. 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.

  13. Option for sounds "Calls only"

    Please add the option for Notifications >> Sounds >> Call only

    I don't need and want sounds for incoming messages, pop-ups, etc. The only sound I need is for incoming calls.

  14. Add Pomodoro timer that toggles status automatically

    Add a Pomodoro functionality/timer that will automatically toggle your status between 'Do Not Disturb' and 'Active'. Give a notification when the pomodoro session completes. Make the focus time period customisable.

    Consider adding a new 'Focus' status instead of 'Do Not Disturb'. 'Do Not Disturb' sounds very negative and is perceived as 'Go Away!'. A 'Focus' status will be perceived as 'Just focussing on something exclusively for a bit, but leave a message and I'll get back to you shortly'.

  17. Review All Unread Updates

    When there are unread updates, users have to click on every group and direct message one at a time to read the updates.

    In Slack, users have the ability to click an "All Unread" page and then view all the unread updates in one screen (and respond to them here as well).

    This saves users from many unnecessary clicking throughout the day and especially at the start of the day.

  20. Status alert on Teams (like Skype)

    In Skype it is possible to set status alert of a user. Since we'll not use Skype Business anymore, this is a nice to have feature.
