  1. Send notifications for all accounts in using multiple accounts on a mobile app

    I’m using multiple accounts on a mobile app. Currently, the chat/call notifications are sent to only the active account. But I would like to see notifications to inactive accounts on the mobile application as well, so I would like you to enable sending every notification to all accounts on the application.

  2. Pop out windows do not get focus when clicked on notification

    When you have pop-out window for a chat, and you get notification for it, the focus is moved to the main Teams window and you get moved inside the chat from wherever you were previously.

    This defeats the purpose for having pop-out window during meetings as you get thrown out the full-screen view as soon as you click notification.

    The focus should be transferred in the pop-out window for that notification and the main Temas window should keep its status.

  3. While in a live meeting, turn off pop-ups

    While in a live meeting, turn off pop-ups and ding noises for chat and new attendees (except for one person designated as the host). I open the chat to see what's listed and I still get the chat pop-up while the chat feed is open, plus the ding of a new comment is overpowering the person who is speaking.

  4. Allow a Sound Notification for Received Messages

    Currently there are only banner or email notifications. When doing work, it makes it hard to keep track of chat conversations unless you are able to see the banner. Adding a simple 'message received' sound notification (even if the old AOL received message sound) would increase productivity.

  5. Manage notifications for all channels in a Team

    Currently I have to edit notifications per channel. Would like to be able to edit notifications for all channels, i.e. at a Team level.

  6. Enable audio notifications for teams chats

    The teams chats can send banner, but there's no way to enable/disable audio alerts.

  7. The ability to update your status - Similar to Skype: Avavilable, Away, Do Not Disturb.

    I specifically find it hard to ignore Teams messages when I am on DND. It would be a great idea to "change my status" to DND and not get those notifications during that time period.
    I also like the idea of being able to see if someone is available when sending them a message to see if it is even worth sending via Teams or if I need to choose a different route.
    Thank you for your consideration!

  8. Tag yourself in Channel posts same as when others tag you

    Currently, when you Tag yourself, @ does not find your id. Teams should allow to tag yourself in Channel posts same as when others tag you

  11. Silence notifications while in a meeting

    I find it annoying that while I'm in a meeting, I get popup notifications for messages being sent in that same meeting's chat. There should be an option that allows for meeting chat notifications to remain on (so that you will be notified when you aren't in the meeting) that becomes silenced once you join a meeting.

  12. Multiple notification sound options

    Give us a handful or more sound options. I'm working from home with two other people who also use teams but we work in different companies. Being able to have different sounds for each of us would make it less distracting.

  13. Notifications while attending a meeting

    *English follows Japanese

    ■Title(件名):
    会議に参加中の通知について
    Notifications while attending a meeting


    ■Description(内容):
    会議に参加中に通知が表示されると邪魔になることがあります。
    通常時は構わないのですが、会議に参加中は、通知をユーザー自身で制御を行うことができるという機能を要望します。

    There are times when notifications get in the way when you are attending a meeting.
    Other times aren’t an issue, but please allow users to restrict the appearance of notifications when they are in a meeting.

  15. Option to change notification sounds in Windows 10

    Please add the option to choose different notification sounds in Teams from Windows 10 Sounds. Skype for Business has its own options of sounds to choose from just like Windows 10.

  16. Turn off notifications for a meeting

    Please add the ability to turn of chat notifications for any given meeting.

    Use case: I'm optional on a meeting. I accept it as tentative for visibility and to be able to review the conversation afterward. I would like to be able to turn off chat notifications for that meeting (and optionally choose a digest email later in the data).

    It would be nice to:
    * have the feature available on the meeting itself on the calendar,
    * have the feature available on the notification itself

    Mute options:
    a) turn off,
    b) mute until the meeting ends,
    c) mute for…

  17. Either use native OS notifications or allow specifying corner

    On Windows, the Teams-specific notifications are hard coded to the lower right corner, which is the same place for native Windows 10 notifications. When a system notification and a Teams notification occur at the same time, the Windows notification obfuscates the Teams one. Since the Teams notifications are short lived, they often disappear before I can clear the Windows one.

    By using the native OS method, they can be combined and acted upon along with the other notifications.

    If OS integration is not possible, please allow us to specify which corner Teams notifications will appear so that at least they…

  19. Remove private chat reactions from the activity feed

    The activity feed does not show private chat messages but it does show private chat reactions. This is very confusing. Either the activity feed should show both private messages and private reactions or neither.

  20. Notification of members joining meeting late

    When I am hosting the meeting, while meeting has started, I dont see any notification for members who joins late. This should be supported.
