  2. Teams pop-up notifications no longer display on top of (fullscreen) applications

    Since a recent change in Teams notifications no longer display on top when working in fullscreen mode. Most collegues work with a Remote Desktop client. Teams they run in the background on their local machine.
    When you would receive a message or a call Teams would pop-up a notification on top of the RD-client. Since a recent update this no longer happens. You have to minimize te RD-client and other applications that run on your local machine, because they all show on top of the Notification.

    I think this is caused by an update where Teams notifications now are using…

  3. Turn off chat notifications for current meeting

    Turn off notifications for meeting chat for the current meeting.

    When I'm in a meeting I still get notifications for the chat of the current meeting, even when I have the meeting chat open on the right side.

  4. sound notification

    The sound you updated to during the week of March 6 is HORRIBLE. Please give us an option to change sounds for chat notifications the same way we can change sounds for the phone calls

  6. Suppress Meeting Notification Until Meeting Start Time

    Often, someone joins a meeting a few minutes early causing notifications on every other user to immediately join. This causes meetings to actually start earlier than scheduled due to everyone showing up due to the notification. As well, once the 'meeting started' notification goes away, a new notification does not fire at the actual start time of the meeting which can cause someone to end up being late if they can't be early (another meeting for example).

    Ask: Have a toggle/setting to have meeting notifications fire at meeting start time vs. first meeting participant. Alternatively, have all notifications fire at…

  7. Route chat banner notification to pop-out chat window

    When a user clicks on the chat banner notification, the chat automatically opens in the main Teams app - even if the user already has that chat open as a pop-out. This is disruptive to work that may be actively ongoing in Teams and defeats the purpose of having a pop-out chat window. When a pop-out chat is open and the user clicks a chat banner notification occurs related to that chat, the user should be routed to the pop-out window, NOT the main Teams app

  9. secondary ringer for messages, not just calls

    Teams needs a secondary ringer for chats and channel posts too, not just calls. In this age of video conferencing most of us have a headset permanently connected to our PC. I find that people are missing chats and channel posts way more often than with Skype because the alert only plays into the headset, not the PC speaker and the toast pop is too brief to get noticed.

  10. Change notification sound

    I would like to be able to change the default notification sound for when I receive chats. While working from home during the Coronavirus pandemic, both my partner and I use Teams for work. It's confusing and distracting that we both have the same notification sound.

  11. Raise hand more noticible

    Make hand-raising more obvious. Maybe highlight video of the person who raises their hands, or an external light that blinks when a hand is raised, or have a big blinking hand over the entire face of the person. A hand is easy to see when you are sitting in front of a computer, but when teaching, and only scanning the screen, the raised hand is easily missed.

    An extra feature, have the ability to turn this feature off since not everyone uses this in a classroom.

  12. Customize notification sounds

  13. Teams icons design changes to reflect status ( for missed calls or upcoming meetings)

    In today's busy and intensely connected times any early warnings or notifications help users keep on top of calls and meetings.

    We believe that if the calls icon in Teams will reflect missed calls(by changing the color or the shape) users will find it easier to return the missed calls without having to click on calls and then click again on history.

    The same can be done for the Calendar icon where it can change the shape in case you have upcoming meetings or you are late for a meeting(you don't always have Outlook open and may miss notifications)

  14. 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.

  17. Cross Organization Notifications

    It would be great if I could receive notifications while I'm in a different organization in teams.

    Say there are two organizations 'A' and 'B' while i'm in organization 'A' I won't receive any notifications from organization 'B'. This leads to me easily missing notifications.

  20. Teams Voice Mail Email Notifications Feature Request

    When calling a user in Teams and leaving a voice mail, an email notification is sent to the user called. Have a few features to add to the notification email.


    1. Currently the email has no company branding on it other than information about the user. I would be nice to add ability to insert company logo to provide some legitimacy to the email. The use of terms like "voicemail" and "VM" is commonly used in phishing emails. Employees are more likely to adopt something if it's branded properly.


    2. There is no indication anywhere in the existing Voice Mail emails that…
