  1. Inactive desktop notification period is too short

    I don't want mobile notifications after being inactive for only three minutes on the desktop.

    The period should be configurable or at least 10 or 15 minutes

  2. 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.

  3. Make notifications come in batches so I don't get a new notification ever few seconds when a live chat is happening

    Make an option for notifications to come in batches so I don't get a new notification ever few seconds when a live chat is happening. For instance, have all notifications consolidate into one pop up every 5 minutes.

    It's annoying to see constant notifications and I'm trying to get something else done. I don't want to have to change the setting to not display notifications because I'll likely forget to switch it back and could miss something important.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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?

  7. 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.

  8. sound notification

    There is no sound notification when a message is sent inside a Team, like there is when you message a Group from Chat. The Banner and small red notification on the TaskBar is not enough to alert Team members they have a message.

  9. 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.

  10. Assignment Notifications

    Send notifications when something is turned in to an assignment. Allow sorting of assignments by last name as well as turned in or not. Also do not allow students to submit nothing. We have many blank assignments.

  11. Implement a Meet Now notification

    It would be very convenient if attendees can see a Meet Now notification in the task bar when they are invited in the Meet Now meeting. Currently, we have to request them to join the meeting before starting, and it’s inconvenient.

  12. 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.

  13. Notifications across multiple teams

    I have an internal teams account and have have access to multiple external teams (as a guest and invited by my clients).

    When I am active in one of the teams I do not receive notifications in the of what is happening in the other Teams - unless I set all notifications to email, which is not what I want!

    It would be useful to at least have an indicator to tell me that there is a notification waiting in the accounts a) at the top right next to the team selector and also when I click the drop down,…

  14. Provide option to suppress "Joined the Team" and "Left the Team" messages in Org-Wide team

    Please provide an option for administrators to suppress the "Joined the Team" and "Left the Team" messages that are automatically added into the conversations stream. This would be a nice feature in any Team, but is really important for the Org-Wide team.

    Because of the nature of our business model, we have a high turnover / churn of employees -- so every day there are multiple messages about who joined the team and who left the team. This noise causes the actual content in the General channel of our org-wide team to be pushed off the page. We try to…

  16. I want a separate option for sound notifications for calls and messages

    I want a separate option for sound notifications for calls and messages. The current "Notification sound" includes "Call, mention, chat" as one option.

  19. Play/Display notification when someone enters a meeting

    When someone enters a meeting, it would be nice to either have a pop-up or sound notification that someone has joined the meeting. You should be able to toggle this on/off so that large meetings can go undisturbed if needed.

  20. Enable @Mentions on documents within the TEAMS app and notifications sent to email and activity feeds

    It would be great to have the ability to @mention users on documents from within the TEAMS app and have notifications sent to both their activity feeds and an email sent in notification. Currently, we're only able to use @mentions when opened in the online or local versions of an Office documents as it does not work within TEAMS. The attached document shows the green arrow from an online comments and the second arrow (yellow) when made in TEAMS does not work. Thanks
