  1. A fading alert

    I would like an alert that fades after a certain time period. There are times when I will tag someone using @ but it is only relevant in that moment. It would be good if there was an alert that would last 10-15 second and if not seen would no longer be a notification on the recipient's end.

  2. Request to show a notification banner in the notification area on Internet Explorer 11

    When using Microsoft Teams on Internet Explorer 11 and even though I set Banner enabled for Notifications, notifications won’t be shown if the browser is minimized. I would request a workaround solution instead of using other browsers or using a desktop client etc.

  3. Need a public announcement about the performance issue if maximum number of members per team would be exceeded

    I would strongly request a public announcement about the performance or what error message would be shown, if a team has exceeded maximum number of users (5,000) for team.

  4. Request to add a notes ‘you cannot access files previously shared’ next to the Include all chat history option

    I would request to add a notes which mentions that you cannot access files which previously shared, next to the Include all chat history option to add users to group chat. Otherwise it is difficult to know that the previously shared files can’t be shared to new people.

  5. Add user settings to teams.. Can't find how to make Teams stop flashing at me.

    I want to control of how Teams tries to notify me of activity... At the moment flashing is too intrusive. I just want to turn it off as it is just one more needy program seeking attention.

  6. Make it more apparent that you have received an IM.

    The new message alert is very subtle. It does not command attention. I have had message go unanswered.

  7. Hi. We need a more "in your face" notification that a message has been sent in teams. adding a little red number to the comment in teams

    We need a more "in your face" notification that a message has been sent in teams. adding a little red number to the comment in teams only works if you have teams open...adding a littl red number to the teams icon in the tray area only works if you have the tray open or aren't hiding it in some way. Having a box appear for a few moments only works if someone is looking at their screen when the notification arrives. Maybe have the notification stay onscreen until clicked, or have it reappear every now and then

  8. Desktop notification for Teams channel

    I am not getting Desktop notifications on Team channel. I've followed the channel, the notifications are only reflecting on Activity.

    Am I missing something in the settings?

    Thank you.

  9. Unify the notification style with other applications.

    At least please let me remove them with right flick.

  10. Chat important message

    Hello,

    it would be great if, before I send a chat message, I could choose that when the receiver receives the message, a window would pop-up on the receivers desktop. This would be useful when you have something urgent to discuss with someone.

    I dont have my notifications activated for chats, because I dont want to be interrupted when I´m in the zone, so to speek. So, if someone needs me right away, he could choose that the message pop-ups in front of my face.

    BR,
    Sebastian

  12. Notifications needs a lot of Love

    Teams notifications of new chat messages is unpredictable. We just tested it and one message only notified via watch (not phone, tablet or computer). The next message from the same user to the same user notified via tablet and phone, but not computer or watch.

    In addition, being able to customize the notifications on each device would be greatly appreciated. Being able to choose audible only/visual only/flash only or any combination of the three types of notification for each device would be extremely helpful.

    And lastly, having further control over mute, such as muting individuals (implemented)/app-wide muting everyone with a…

  13. Notification preference sets

    I need a way to configure all of my notification settings together depending on what kind of work I'm, and then choose those groupings at different times.

    For example, maybe there's a group I name "keep me informed" where I have many notifications turned on and I receive them frequently. Likewise, I use a "heads down" set where I have next to nothing enabled.

    The option to have Do Not Disturb except for a few folks is a step in the right direction, as is the status message that lasts for a certain duration of time. But right now I'm…

  15. Notifications not seen

    several of my team members have reported delayed message notifications or unclear message notifications. I have made sure settings a adjusted so there is a banner and an email, but, to reference skype, they mentioned that they liked the feature that brings up the window when a message is received so that it is not missed.

  17. When someone has chat in Teams, we dont get notified unless that person has tagged me or the Teams Name. Could you please fix this? Thanks

    We dont get notifications when someone has chat me in Teams unless they tagged my name or tagged the group name. It would be best if you will fix this type of issue so we can easily notify in a group chat when someone has sent messages. Thank you

  18. Add "reply" and "turn off notifications" buttons on notification available toast

    When tagging contacts and the notification toast pops that one of your contacts are available, it would be nice to extend the time a little and allow you to either "Reply" or "Turn Off Notifications" right there on the toast so that you don't have to switch to the client.

  20. Recalling from activity list should be simpler

    Recalling from activity list should be simpler. When missing a call, it must be simpler to call back.
