  1. Chat Pop Ups

    When you receive a chat pop up notification on your desktop can you have an option in notifications to have the message hidden? This way it only shows the pop up notification and who it is from, but not the contents of the message.

    This would be extremely helpful when you're in client presentations or group meetings and are sharing your screen and want to still know if folks are contacting you but do not want the contents visible.

  3. Disable or mute notifications when not attending a meeting

    Ability to disable or mute notifications for a meeting you are not actively attending.
    Consider the scenario of being double booked or optional for a meeting and you don't join. There is no need for the Chat/IM popups and dings to occur, instead I should look at my activity feed and can then choose if I need to review or not.

  4. Mark all Channels as Read

    It would be great if we can please have the ability to mark all Channels in a Team as read.

    At present, if you go to a Team, and you have 30, 40 or more than 50 channels, you will see that all the channels are bolded. This indicates you have not read the content.

    So at the Team level, and even the Channel level, it would be great if you can right-click, and select “Mark all as Read”

    This would be especially helpful when you are added to a Team that has many Channels. When I am added to…

  5. Notification Pop Up

    It would be great if the user can decide where on the screen a notification pop up is shown. It is very often hiding buttons to the bottom right which is annoying.

  6. Notification Banner Only on First Message

    Rather than having a notification banner pop up for EVERY message, make it an option that you only get the banner for the first message you receive in a series.

  7. Microsoft Stream videos hyperlink

    Now Teams support Stream as a tab., thanks.
    Next step is to be able to create a hyperlink for each added video in Teams to be able to create a conversation/notification about each newly added video.

  8. sorry, we ran into a problem

    Where do these "Sorry" error message go after they pop up and disappear?
    There does not appear to be any way to "open" the message. Clicking on it does nothing.
    Is there somewhere we can go to find out what the issue was?

  9. Banners and Notificaitons

    Allow a settings option where I can choose to have notification banners simply be a general notification--not display the actual body of a chat message visible.

  11. Deleted conversation entries are still shown under Activity

    My college replied to a team conversation which mentioned me in the text and deleted the reply again shortly after.

    When I opened MS teams later I got a notification under Activity. Clicking this activity opened the according conversation but of course marked nothing.

    --> Very confusing, as I had to talk to my college to figure out, that she deleted the reply and the Activity notification is just not deleted accordingly.

  13. 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.

  14. Block notifications on mobile when status is Do Not Disturb

    When status is DND, notifications still come through on mobile (iOS version 1.077.2017072604). Very disturbing when on a phone call.

  17. Autofollow the channels to get notifications

    It's better every team member to follow the channel automatically (as a default) and if he (she) decides not to receive notifications can unfollow

  18. Mail notification uses the first name of displayname (which might be the last name)

    I would consider this more as a bug.
    Problem:
    In all email notifications it looks like it uses the first part of the displayname property (unitl the first space).

    Assumption:
    AD Property Displayname uses Lastname Firstname
    Based on Screenshot this is HOBMAIER Dennis and Maierhofer Andreas.

    Error:
    The Result will be:
    Hello LASTNAME

    LASTNAME (of other participant) sent a chat message.
    See the attached screenshot.

    Expectation:
    Change this to use AD first name attribute.

  19. saved

    I use the Save mention feature a lot for later correspondence. Save button is very easy to use on the message but to find the saved message is very hard because it is hidden in the menu. Please place the saved list menu on the navigation bar.
