  1. Have sound for incoming calls only

    Teams is barely usable for me due to the very limited sound options - particularly only being able to have 'All' (which is far too distracting as you get a beep for every chat message), or 'Call, mention and chat' (seems to be same as All except if banners are turned off) or 'Off'.

    I cannot have popup banners as they are far too distracting, disabling these also seems to stop 'call mention and chat' working though.

    Can we have a 'Calls' section in the notifications options so we can hear a sound for incoming calls but disable sound for…

  2. Notification Setting - Disable Reply Notifications

    It would be really nice to be able to disable all reply notifications. That way you could still FOLLOW a channel and get notifications for Only New conversations, and not all the replies. This would function a lot like Slack Threads, and help limit needless notifications. Like if someone says in the General Channel, "Is there anyone available to come help me in the loading dock" and 4 people reply, I'd like to get notified about the first message, not all the replies! Thanks

  3. Notification aren't visible

    I think the notification on the left side menu isn't very visible. I'd like to see a color on the new notification instead of highlighted font.

  5. Do not send emails for missing messages

    Please don’t send me an email when I’m missing a message for less than an hour. People don’t like receiving too many emails. It’s annoying

  6. Working Hour Notifications

    A way to set your 'working hours' in your profile settings to only receive notifications within that time-frame. This way, we can leave work and switch off without continuing to get notifications on our phones.

  7. android

    This request concerns push notifications for Android Mobile phones in China.

    Microsoft has a good relationship with China and its message and communication platforms are not blocked, but if our employees use Microsoft Teams on Android in China they are out of luck.

    All of Android's and Google Services are blocked and so are push notifications which are of a great importance to mobile devices for their battery life.

    Luckily Baidu has a widely availble system in place and a Android appstore. Microsoft Teams is all ready available on Baidu Android appstore (and Tecent's 360.cn or qq,com), but the push…

  8. Disable banners (notifications) out of the box, and ability for corporate wide disabling

    By default the notification banners should be disabled out of the box, and then users can change their banner subscriptions. Also there should be a corporate wide setting to push this disable banners to all users.

  9. Desktop Notifications

    At this moment in time, I cannot see when someone posts something into a team..

    adding in a desktop notification to say when someone has posted in a team without mentioning you would be good!

  11. More robust Desktop Notification settings

    For Desktop Notifications:


    • Allow close Notification ("X" in the top right)


    • Allow a notification setting for ONLY showing the "Sender" rather than the "Sender" AND the "Message Text". (similar to iOS message where you see a person texted you but you don't see the message until you unlock the phone and read it)


    • Customize the automatic close timing (right now it defaults to 10-15 seconds for message notifications, would like to shorten to 3-5 seconds)

  12. Editting a Message and a Notification

    Earlier today I posted a message too early, so I went back to edit it and add tags to people. When I did, they did not receive notifications because I tagged them while I was editing. I need them to get the notification regardless if I tag them in the original post or in the edited version.

  13. Soft notification for channels you don't follow

    Can we get some form of soft (non-push) notifications like only in the Activity centre, but not a push notification for any message in any favourite channel that I am not following. Currently I am completely missing a lot of messages in channels that I have as favourites, but do not follow. Slack has a red icon or blue icon for followed or only favourite messages respectively.

  14. Badge feature on other tab similar to chat

    On the chat tab, there is a feature to show unread notifications, the same feature could have been made available on teams, meetings etc where the number of new items since last visit to the tab are shown.

  15. New response indicator

    There is no indication other than the banner notification that you have new responses to a team or individual chat with someone. It's very easy to miss if someone responded to a chat. For example in Skype for Business, the chat window would flash and show yellow and highlight the name of the person that responded or sent you a message and it stays there until you read it. Teams has no such thing so it's very hard to know when someone responds to a chat. Please improve this.

  16. Better notifications. Highlight team name if channel has new message. Don't hide channels i.e. 3 more channels

    Better notifications if there are messages within a channel you are part of. Shouldn't have to be mentioned in a message to be notified. You are in the team as you are involved even as an outer level interested person so its expected to keep informed of conversations.

    Highlight the Team name with how many new messages are within the channels.

    Ability to expand all team and channels down in one view rather than expand off to the side. This should be available as a default setting. When you are a member of 40+ channels, you need the ability to…

  17. Allow users to limit app icon badge count to only direct or tagged messages

    As it is, anytime any user posts in one of my followed channels, the app badge icon (OS X) increments. This is a lot of noise and so I ignore the badge.

    It would be great if the badge only counted unread messages more likely to pertain to me (direct messages, messages where I'm tagged, replies to my messages).

  18. more channels bold

    If there are more than 5 channels then the 6th and additional channels are listed via the cascaded list which appears when one clicks on the "X more channels" link.

    If any of the 6th or remaining channel has new content, it will appear in bold within the cascaded list.

    However, one will not know about this bold text indication until one clicks on the "X more channels" link.

    Suggestion: Please make the "X more channels" bold if any of the additional channel has new content.

  19. Control notification when Add members

    Team's administrators sometime would like to avoid the automatic built-in email welcome message sent to a new member when he/she's being added to a Team but sent a custom message in a later time explaining the new members the whole contact of the new team they've been invited to. Option to uncheck email notification (similar to what SharePoint provides is very needed to address this scenario.
    In addition, the timing of sending this email welcome message should be changed to after all members at this cycle are being added so admin can regret and remove from the list potential members…
