  1. Automatically update status/location (ie working from home/in office) based off location

    It was nice in Skype that it would automatically update to my default status "In Office" when at my work location or to "Working from Home" when at my home location. I switch back and forth between the two locations every day so now have to type in a new status/location every morning when I log in.

  2. Instant feedback right from the app!

    I had to read a screen of text to understand that feedback should be posted from another page! Wtf? Do you need user’s feedback? Give us a simpler way to write it.

  3. Alow to change the Notifications Sound for Teams

    I barely hear the notifications in Teams. Allow the user to set up a noticeable tone or ring so I know that a Teams message has arrived. I get many notifications from many apps. I need to have a distinctive sound so I know that a message has arrived in Teams.

  4. Turn-in History

    There should be a history of the times the student turned-in and undid it.

    There have been problems wherein students accidentally clicked undo turn-in. Knowing when they first turned-in a file (that they uploaded not the one posted by the teacher that they edited) can serve as proof of the real time of submission.

  5. When someone is sharing their screen and another user raises their hand, the user sharing their screen can't see the hand being raised

    When someone is sharing their screen and another user raises their hand, the user sharing their screen can't see the hand being raised.

    It would be useful if a desktop notifcation appeared when a user raises their hand so the presenter can see that someone is wanting to ask a question.

  6. "Untag" Button on status change notifications

    When tagging someone as "Notify when available" it would be nice to have an "untag" button on the notification that shows up.

    Currently, you have to go to the main Teams interface, find the person who's still tagged for status change and then select "turn off notifications" which is a bunch of extra clicks.

  10. Notification placement is annoying

    Mine pop up in the right bottom corner and when i'm typing and notifications keep coming in, i can't see what i'm typing and it's really annoying. I can't find a function to move the pop up to somewhere else on the screen. Please let me know if i've just missed it!

  11. Notification sound to join "Meet Now" meeting in channels

    Add a sound/notification for when a "Meet Now" meeting is initiated in the teams channel. Moving between teams/channels with large groups you miss the "Join" pop up when there is a large chat thread ensued in the posts section.

  12. Hide status notifications or at least keep them closed after you close them once

    these status/out of office messages that pop up even after you've closed them once should be able to be hidden or stay closed after the first time you X them out.

  14. Silence notifications

    I would like a button to quickly and easily silence all notifications. I may be doing a virtual meeting on other platforms but the Teams app can be invasive and ignores "do not disturb" functions (either on the computer or within the app) and will sound during a presentation.

  15. Customized notification sounds

    In a crowded office, it's challenging to understand which of us is being sent an IM or other notifications. It'd be great to have the ability to customize or have a selection of notification sounds so that we know if it's for us or another colleague.

  16. Please add an option as an admin to enable notifications by default for all messages in all channels or even for specific channels.

    Please add an option as an admin or team owner to enable notifications by default for all messages in all channels or even for specific channels.
    So for example an announcements channel for example notifications wouldn't go missed by default.

  17. Having the option to disable the popup notification for when someone is waiting in the lobby

    In most meetings I've been a part of, this has been a really annoying problem. I'm a student, therefore, the meeting organizers are always my teachers. However, for some reason, I'm able to admit people into the meeting and sometimes mute participants. When there's someone waiting in the lobby, a pop-up notification shows up in the middle of the screen and keeps appearing even after closing it for each person that joins the lobby. This is really annoying especially when I'm trying to focus on the content being shared by the teacher. Unfortunately, there is no option to disable such…

  19. Ability to turn off chat alerts for meetings I am not attending

    There are meetings on my calendar that I sometimes do not attend due to conflict. I would like the option to turn off chat notifications for meetings that appear on my calendar, but that I am not participating in.

  20. Be able to move the entire Chat icon as its own window so we can see chats pop up easier

    Be able to move the entire Chat icon as its own window so we can see chats pop up easier. The chat icon gets lost in the list and simply having it blink as an alert of a chat is not enough. Please make it possible to be open on its own instead of just individual chats (pop out feature for a specific chat).
    Thanks
