  1. Notification sound: Sounds need to be much louder AND we need to be able to choose from several different sounds, as we could in Slack.

  2. Channel notification settings: ability to change default via admin center

    Please add via Teams admin to change the default Channel Notifications for "All New Posts" to Banner and Feed" vs default to "off."
    This is very important vs relying on team members to change this setting themselves per channel.

    Let them change it if they don't want to receive notifications for certain channels. If you have over 30 channels and like 10 different teams, going through them all to change this settings is terrible especially if you NEED the notifications for the majority of them.

  3. Notification Sounds

    Please add different notification sounds, and a way to change those. Skype was wonderful with this. Please add a similar feature back to Teams.

  4. Add whole mention text to email notification

    I receive notification emails for personal and team mentions. Some are important but many are not. However the email doesn't have enough of the message to tell, so I have to log in to teams and open my activity just to see that someone posted a picture.

    Please include the whole conversation message in the email notification.

  5. Silence notifications for selected team

    I am a member of several teams but I only want notifications for my main/home team. Should be able to silence notifications on a per team basis. Per channel for that matter. Do it like Facebook. On any notification you receive, long press and choose "stop receiving notifications for this team/channel/conversation/person"... etc.

  6. snooze notification

    Allow a notification or multiple notifications to be snoozed x number of minutes. Sometimes it's not possible to reply to a message right away, so having the ability to snooze a notification for 10 minutes for example was a very useful feature of slack, so that I could snooze the notification and be reminded of it at a more opportune time. Giving a range of snooze times is also super handy for accomplishing this, as well as the ability to resnooze for subsequent periods. For example on slack you can snooze a notification for 20 mins, 1 hour, 2 hours,…

  7. Notifications

    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.

  8. Allow notifications to be disabled for Thumbs-up reactions

    It's annoying to have Teams flashing away telling you there's something new to look at when it's just someone clicking Thumbs-up on a comment. There should be an option to disable those notifications while leaving notifications for actual messages.

  9. 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.

  10. 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).

  11. Phone ring

    Please add the device choice for incoming call ringing,
    as it was possible in skype business.

    Computer loudspeaker ring, and not that the ringtone arrives in the headphones.

  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. Automatically clear activity when the activity is viewed without requiring switching to the activity page

    I get a pop up notification of a new message in a channel.
    I alt-tab to teams. I'm already in the channel, so I see the new message.
    Why does 'Activity' still have a number telling me I haven't seen this new message? Don't make me switch to the activity page to clear the indicator. Clear the indicator automatically when Teams gains focus with the channel that has new activity already selected.

  14. 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?

  15. Notifications within Teams

    I'd like to see a notification bubble for new posts (of any type) in the Teams I'm in (yes, I'm already following) just as I can see for chats. It's an extra step for me to have to click through the teams to see if there's new activities. I'd like to be notified as soon as activities happen.

  16. Chat notifications in Chat, not Activity

    When someone likes a message on Chat, the notification appears on Activity, so you have to click to a different screen to see it. Would like notifications about any activity in Chat show up in Chat

  17. Ability to use @mentions in emails to channel

    I have searched and experimented, but I can find no way to use @mentions when you email a channel. I frequently forward received emails to a channel to bring up a subject in Teams and I would like to be able to use @mention in the email. As it is now, I have to go reply to my own email in the channel (which, I cannot edit to add the @mention, BTW) and say something like "@team Wanted to notify you about..."

  18. I am getting "You've got new notifications in Microsoft Teams" emails about messages I've seen and responded to hours ago

    Seems like this just started today. I am getting "You've got new notifications in Microsoft Teams" emails about messages I've seen and responded to hours ago, so as today has gone on I am continually getting these emails. It seems like Teams server doesn't realize I'm logged in and using Teams (Win 10 desktop) client and have viewed all messages I've received.

  19. Use topic feeds to monitor team/channel activity (ie ego filter)

    In prior platforms (such as Group Chat, Lync) you could fine-tune your room monitoring by setting up topic feeds, or filters, that notify you of chat room messages that contain specific words and phrases you’re interested in. Our various business units have created several processes around this feature.

    These helped us focus on areas that involve or interest certain groups without having to inspect every new message that gets posted to the rooms you’re following. Ideally this would also highlight the keyword(s) that were identified by the filter.

  20. Mute channel timer

    Great work on the new mute channel/chat feature. However, I think this would be vastly improved by adding a timer funtion (like facebook messenger). This would allow you to permanently mute a channel/chat or mute it for a set period (30 mins, 1 hour, 4 hours, 1day, 1 week for example).
    This means that when you are concentrating on work and don't want notifications popping up every second for stuff that is currently irrelevant, but don't want to miss future team chats it gives that ability. I hope that explanation makes some sense.
