  1. Tag Teammates in Planner Cards & Push Notifications

    It would be really helpful to add more ways to notify teammates on through planner:
    -Tag teammates in Planner Card comments
    -Push notifications for mobile when mentioned in such tags.

  2. Automatic DND when presenting

    Automatically set status to Do Not Disturb/DND when presenting or sharing screen like on Skype. It's very inconvenient when banners for personal chat notifications come up during meetings, sometimes the content is not to be shared with others. If not that then allow for the option to not show actual text in the banner notifications.

  3. Download Improvements

    Download Improvements

    Generally the download experience with Teams is pretty poor and I'm amalgamating suggestions in to one

    - Configuration of download location other than default download folder
    - Download progress and fixing of hanging UI when downloading file
    - Permanent notification to user in chat/team room or even a downloaded management area showing downloaded files with a direct link to open file
    - Ability to open file directly from notification
    - Ability to open folder from all areas download is listed
    - Ability to download to a different one time location from the file hamburger menu

  4. @mention Post From Flow Does Not Work

    When using Flow to post a message to a Team channel, the @mention does not trigger a notification. The text of the message is simply the "@mention" that was typed. Please enable a text recognition of @mention to enable the notification as though it were being typed directly in Teams.

  5. Allow Webhooks Extensions to @mention individuals and channels

    The JSON payload used for formatting MS Teams notifications via a Webhooks Extension should allow @mentions to be constructed.

    Similar to how a bot can construct a mention in it's response via <at>@General</at>.

    Without this functionality, there's no way for members of a channel to be notified by the Webhooks Extension without having to first follow the channel.

    In most real world scenarios, following a channel will not suffice — leading to spam and distractions for the team.

    For many, the absence of this capability is preventing the transition from Slack to Teams.

  6. Important Message Notification

    Currently, there does not seem to be any notification on any platform when a message in a Team/Channel is marked Important. Please put an option to be notified for important messages, even if you aren't actually mentioned in the post.

  9. Scheduled Do Not Disturb, like Slack

    Do Not Disturb should block all notifications and I'd love to be able to schedule DND, like on Slack

  10. Use native MacOS Notification Manager

    Instead of using a custom notification, please use native MacOS Notification manager. This will allow users to manage notifications consistently with most other MacOS apps.

  11. notification reminders

    Being able to set reminders for messages received, whether it be a group chat or private. As simple as hovering over the message and maybe clicking a drop down box (where other options such as edit, save, or delete message would be) then clicking "set reminder" and then just set a desired time.

  12. Respect Focus Assist

    Teams should respect Windows Focus Assist settings. I'm not even sure how apps are allowed to override Windows settings like this.
    I put Windows Focus Assist into Alarms Only mode so I could record screen captures and I Teams kept popping up notifications over my application. I had to completely exit Teams so I could finish my task.

  13. Better notification control, especially sound options

    Right now (3/5/19 update) the only options for sound notifications are All; call, mention, and chat; Off.

    I want sound notifications for call, but not chat or mention. Grouping calls with chats for sound notifications is odd - calls are usually important but sound notifications for every chat message is excessive.

  14. notifications

    I am unable to get any pop-up notifications on my phone from the Teams app. I have checked the following settings: On the app:
    Menu/Settings/Notifications:

    Send Notifications - "Always, even if active on desktop"

    Push Notifications - All selected

    Sound - set on with vibrate

    On the phone:

    Settings/Notifications:

    Teams set to notify

    Advanced:

    Allow Notifications selected

  15. shifts notifications

    SHIFTS: Notifications for upcoming shifts
    StaffHub sent an email to the user assigned to a Shift, to remind them of an upcoming shift. It would be very helpful to have this as an option Teams.

  16. Add an option to make Banners "sticky" so they would only go away after being acknowledged or dismissed

    It'd be nice if unread updates to a channel or direct chat would result in a persistent banner that would stay on screen until I read the message or dismissed the notification.

  18. Mute team notifications on channels and teams when team is not favorite

    When you don't want to leave the team, but it is not actively worked on (so, it is not favorite) , there needs to be a option to mute all team and channel atmention notifications from it. I would want to stick in the team so I can be atmentioned when needed.

    Currently, if you unfavorite team you still get notications
    - when somebody atmentions the team (as per documentation)
    - when somebody atmentions a channel that is favorite (even when the team is unfavorited)
    - when somebody atmentions general channel of unfavorited team (since you can't unfavorite general)

    Now…

    I would like a setting to turn notifications on or off based on a timer so that notifications only pop up during set work hours.
