  1. clear notifications

    It would be great to have the option to clear notifications through a right-click menu on: a) the chat, teams, and activity areas, and b) on the task bar icon itself.

  2. Notifcations on channel

    There should be an option to set up customized notifications or at least an option to enable notifications on all activity in a channel.

    We've got webhooks posting in a channel but the only thing to let us know the webhook has posted is that the channel name goes bold. There should pop up som notification or at least change the icon in the toolbar.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. @mentions should take me to the conversation

    I get the notification in my feed, but I would like to see the context of the conversation in which I was mentioned. For example, in Twitter, when I click on the time a tweet was posted, it gives me information about the conversation.

  7. 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.

  8. Improve audio notifications

    VOLUME: The sound is too low!! Most people don't think it's even on. Let us customize the sound level, please.

    UNIQUE SOUNDS FOR CALLS VS CHATS/MESSAGES: Right now sounds are all or nothing. This is not good. For example, you may want to have sound for Calls but not for chat or messages. There is a difference when you need to hear that someone is calling you – versus getting the constant bing/bing/bing on message chat.

    UNIQUE SOUND FOR PRIVATE CHAT: It would be nice to have different sounds for private chat and notifications, so that its easy to know…

  9. follow notifications

    When following a channel the notifications (icon in taskbar) for new threads is not working reliably. Please have a look at this as this makes the "follow channel" feature unuseable.

  10. Pause Notifications Temporarily

    When in meetings or other concentrated workflows, it is not easy to pause notifications for a brief period of time without going through the full notifications settings. Can you add a pause feature where you can select the amount of time to pause all notifications?

  11. Allow us to turn of flashing taskbar notifications

    Flashing taskbar notifications are a bit annoying, and it would be nice to have the option to turn off that flashing (while keeping popup notifications enabled).

  12. Sync notification badge count across platforms

    The unread notifications count needs to be synced across platforms. For example, right now if I read my Teams messages on my Mac, my iOS app will still have a red badge on the app icon indicating I have unread messages. This leads to be constantly opening my iOS app thinking I have missed something, only to see it's messages from hours earlier that I already read on another device.

  13. Desktop application bar continues to flash after message read

    When I receive a message, I click on the desktop app and read, sometimes I'll even reply. Once I minimize the app and continue with my work, the app begins to flash until I click it. There are no new notifications or messages. Once clicked, it flashes two or three more times and stops. This is extremely irritating when trying to work and Teams keeps bugging me for nothing. Please fix this asap.

  14. Stop showing a notification after ending a call.

    After ending a call with a person, that persons name is highlighted as having unread messages.

    This is really annoying.

    The only way to stop it is to change to another person and back again.

  16. When a tab has been edited (excel or any file), indicate that the channel is updated

    For any tab, for example an excel file, if the file is modified at any time, indicate that the channel has an update available. This could include a visual in the channel listing, as well as bolding the tab label

  17. Ability to subscribe to desktop notifications while opting out of mobile notifications for the same channel.

    While working on my computer, I like to see my desktop notifications for my channels that I'm following. However, I don't like to get all of the notifications on my mobile when I'm not working. It would be great to have an option for "desktop and mobile" and another option for "desktop only" or something along those lines.

  18. slightly larger status indicator

    Would like the status ball to be just a little bit bigger; maybe 50% bigger

  20. Email settings

    I keep getting emails (e.g. when I am unavailable for a chat message) saying "Rather not get these emails? Head over to the app, click Settings and then Notifications to edit your preferences." But, the Windows 10 app has no such setting, or, it is extremely well hidden!
