  1. getting a alert when a new channel has been created

    There a few alerts but nothing when a new channel is created, a banner and email similar to other alerts
    we use teams to work on issues, with a new channel for each issue, it would be nice to get a alert when a channel is created

  3. Update word choice in notifications email: it's not Options, it's "Settings"

    Not a big deal: but the email I received notifying me of new messages has an explanation of how to change email notification settings... but the word used (Options) is not what it is called when changing the setting in Teams. It should say "Settings." See attached screenshot.

  4. Downloaded banner popup behavior

    when you hit the downloaded banner popup, it doesn't do anything. it should open the downloaded file or at least bring you to that folder.

  5. Teams Download & Conditional Access

    We have enable Conditional Access controls to prevent users from using applications that do support MAM. This include the Teams desktop app. When a user clicks on an email that notifies him/her about being mentioned, the link opens the default browser and propts two things:
    1. Find a compatible app in the Microsoft App Store but Teams is not in the Store so there are no results
    2. Download the Team app but this results in the user wasting time as Conditional Access polices prevent using the app

    I suggest some potential solutions:
    1. Allow the user to choose a…

  6. This app needs sounds! People pay WAY more attention to the chirp, etc. than they do banner notifications

    Skype is way better at making itself known... without the sounds in this app, my colleagues don't notice that they have activity they need to check in on

  9. "Teams" chat groups should have an option for notifications

    My company has recently moved from Skype to Teams. We love the program and our only issue so far is we have Teams set up and there aren't any notifications to show you have new messages in a chat room. This causes some people to miss things if they're not paying close attention and constantly checking it.

  10. Enhance e-mail notifications to be more descriptive and less spammy

    Anytime we do an @mention everyone in our team gets an e-mail notification that is pretty much useless because it only says someone has mentioned you or that you've missed some messages on a channel, instead of actually providing a short blurb of each message or mention. People on our team feel they are getting spammed because the e-mails do not provide any value to them due to their lack of descriptiveness.

  12. TFS Connector: unhelpful notification banner details

    Currently, TFS notification banners have zero detail about the action sent. It is a step down from my experience with TFS notifications that I've received for quite some time now in Slack.

    Slack gives just a enough detail that I can be updated on the action and choose to followup in the client or be satisfied with the status I see, and allow the notification to disappear.

    I don't know if this is something that can be changed in the individual connectors, but I would like to see parity with Slack on this front.

  13. make a notification that doesn't require sound

    I work with a lot of people that are always on the phone. We can't have our sound notifications on. I need a blinking light or some sort of pop up that let's me know I have a new message. Thanks!

  15. Is there a way to send a message to everyone in a specific team on a specific channel without tagging every single person in the message?

  16. Email Notifications

    It would be great if the Team application would send an automatic email to members when any changes occurred to the site. Examples would be if a file was changed or added or if a conversation was posted.

  18. notification appears after you dismissed (and read) the message received

    This super annoying.

    An alert nagging you about a message you just read a moment ago!!

    My guess is that the app waits for about three seconds... if you look at the message and dismiss the window within this time frame, Teams will insist that you have unread messages.

  19. notifications only when the app is in the background.

    on the MacOS app, its super noisy when you are reading a thread and getting notifications about it at the same time. Should be able to mute the toasts when the app is in the foreground
