  1. Activity summary via email

    Many people remain very attached to OUTLOOK (or other email organiser) as a general organisation/communication tool.

    Would it be possible to receive an email summarising all changes/activity of a channel? regardless if I have been on the channel or not.
    The option: profile>Notifications>email frequency> (frequency choice) does not send me an email of the channel activity.

  2. Notifications need to be improved. Some teams are routine, other ones are for mission critical communication among the team. I need to to

    Need ability to select notification (sound, e-mail, text, pop-up, ribbon note) for each channel. One of my Teams carries mission-critical info (outage reports and coordination). Whenever I get a note on this channel I need sirens, pop-ups and text messages to go off so I can take quick action . All the other Teams are administrative groups and routine notifications work for that.

  4. Different notification settings per team

    There are some teams that are more important to me than others. Team members constantly mention their entire team (as they should) but I do not need to get emails for all of these. However, I do want an email for other teams. My inbox if getting flooded and I am now faced with abandoning the teams I'd like to be a part of, or shutting down notifications and being left out of the loop on my more important teams.

  5. Show new notification on app icon.

    It would be great to have red notification circle on the app icon on the dock (OSX), just like it does on iphone when you have a missed call or new text message, with the number of new notifications for this app.

  6. Silence push notifications to mobile device when outlook set to out of office.

    This request is to provide a feature where the teams app installed on a mobile device (iPhone, Android, Windows, etc) to not receive notifications when the person's outlook calendar says OOO for the day or specific time period. This is a grey area since the whole idea is to be informed and "always on" but when on vacation wouldn't want to be disturbed with them and consume unneeded battery life or privacy.

  7. Offer better ability to leave conversations in progress

    My company uses this platform for communications and it's very useful... but there's one big problem I have. Frequently, someone will start a conversation that I'm not involved in. It's started in our general group, and people who do have input chime in... but I continue to get notifications both on my phone and computer that a new message has arrived, but it has NOTHING to do with me. If I leave the group, I don't get notified of new conversations that DO involve me, but if I don't leave the group, I get spammed with messages that waste my…

  9. Double Notification Problem

    Quite often I get notified of a new message and click on the notification to read said message. If I then minimise Teams to the taskbar I frequently get a second notification in the form of the taskbar icon flashing: when I look at Teams again, there are no new messages.

    It's as if the left-corner-of-the-screen notification dialog and the taskbar flashing come from two different timelines, both operating independently of the other and neither fully in sync.

  10. Ability to @tag all members of a team/channel in a message/post.

    Ability to use @everyone or @channel tags to mention everyone on the team or channel in my post.This way, I can ensure that everyone on the team, or specific channel are notified about my message/post (Specifically useful when members have their notification settings are set to "Send me notifications for: Mentions only".).

    we have this!  ·  Suphatra responded

    Just type “@general” in any channel in the team, and it will notify and alert everyone in that team of the message.

  11. notifications for all messages

    Friends,

    I would like to suggest a feature to allow a user to receive notifications for everything and not only when he/she gets mentioned on a channel.

    Thank you!

  12. Update Uservoice tickets status more often

    Would it be possible to get more infos on status, issues, release plans, team decisions here on uservoice?

    "Multiple Teams Accounts" was promised half a year ago. No update ever since.

    Right now it feels more like fire and forget. Drop your concern/idea/issue here and hope that something will happen somewhen.

  14. Please add teams notification

    MSTeams is a good system.
    I want to make use more comfortable.
    And I usually use conversation of 'Teams'.
    But the category of 'Teams' only offers when new message reply to my message.
    So I can't notice other persons discussions.

    Please consider to adding a notification of 'Teams' when new message was sending.

  15. Notifications on taskbar like Wunderlist

    Notification functionality to mirror outlook or Wunderlist. With outlook, new messages popup in the notification bar in Win 10 and a closed envelope appears in the open application in the taskbar. With Wunderlist the number of tasks due today is in a circle on the taskbar even when the app is closed. In a work environment we need to have better notification capacity. Outlook is a perfect example of how it can be done right, and Wunderlist improves on the taskbar notifications. It further helps to have options under notifications to control how taskbar notifications work so that people can…

  16. Allow meetings shown in Teams that come from Outlook to bring Outlook's categorization

    Teams shows all the meetings that I have scheduled via Outlook, but it does not show the color-coded categorization that I have applied in Outlook's calendar. If this could come across into Teams, it would help me keep my different project meetings organized.

  17. Time stamp when each team member views a comment

    We have moved over from WhatsApp and one of the features I used frequently was the information button that told me what time each member of my team viewed a message I posted.

  18. Notifications need to be more obvious - a banner or stronger pings when a new comment is made- items can go hours without being seen.

    Notifications are very weak within the platform. I can go hours and sometimes days without realizing a comment has been added or new discussion post has been made. I have all notification options available turned on and still do not receive banners or emails fro some reason. The system should offer levels of notification where it can almost be an annoyance if you have an unread item. If this tool is supposed to be a one stop shop for communication within your team everything should be done to avoid missing new messages. As it stands currently this is the biggest…

  20. Make alerts or badge notifications available on Microsoft TEAMS.

    Information is getting lost when we don't have notifications coming in. There is a lot of competition for our attention and with MS TEAMS not having notifications, it looses the efficiency that it can achieve. I would recommend to put notifications for all messages coming in as well as badge notifications.
