  1. 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

  2. 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. Default notifications for every channel

    Every channel should have notifications auto-enabled, which could be muted at the user's liking. Muting could be enabled/disabled in the admin center in the event that a channel is of great importance and needs to send out notifications to everyone. In the attached screenshot is the option to "Notify me every time there is a new post in this channel". This should just be automatic.

  5. Allow for sound notification option/customization

    When Banners for Microsoft Teams is turned off, a sound notification is no longer present, as it when a new message was received in Chat when Banners was turned on. The Banner itself is too invasive for all the chat messages that I receive, since it blocks me from seeing/using my screen. In fact the blinky to taskbar and sound would be fine, but not a pop up in the notifications area. Sound notification options would still be nice to have irregardless, in Chats and individual Channels. The customization options that were once available in the product were proven to…

  6. @mentions from word, excel, powerpoint and onenote in Teams

    Today when you @mention someone in word, excel and powerpoint an email notification is being generated. I can understand in a way it is designed that way but at the same time that goes against how you (MS) is marketing Teams to be the collaboration platform and not Outlook.
    I would much rather have the notifications show up in Teams when being @mentioned from a document instead of having an email. Then you can start working right away and continue the comments within Teams. There should be, at least, an option or switch where you can choose to have the…

  7. Settings > Notifications: Notification sounds need to allow more options

    “Notification sounds = Off” will disable all sound notifications, including disabling the Call notifications. What I’d like to do is to disable Mention and Chat notification sounds for example, but keep Call notification sounds. This can't be done at the moment as only 3 options are available:
    All
    Call, mention and chat
    Off
    We would need additional options to cover all use cases.
    Thanks

  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. customize specific chime sounds per chat, per channel, per event, and per audio channel

    Add the ability to assign different sounds to different channels & chats and various events. (Imagine you monitor 6 channels, but two of them are really important. You could set a "ding" for one, and a "buzz" for another.)

    Add the ability to ring these sounds for different events such as:
    * new chats
    * messages with you @mentioned
    * calendar reminder
    * posts from a specific contact
    * participant joins & leaves

    Lastly, be able to decide which audio devices they should play on: headset, internal speaker, all, etc

    This suggestion is primarily directed at desktop clients for the…

  11. 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.

  12. I want to be able to change the Message Notification Sound

    I find ever since the Teams notification sound to be really obnoxious. I feel we need to have the ability to change that sound completely without having to disable banner notifications.

  13. Respect Do not Disturb (Urgent Messages)

    We disabled the urgent message function in our company (20'000 emloyees) because the function does not respect the presence status. Our employees are used to activate do not disturb in order to really not be disturbed anymore. But the feature to flag messages as urgent would nevertheless be very cool. Give us the option to select wether urgent messages should or should not break «Do not disturb»

  14. 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.

  15. Flashing Icon in task bar for unread messages

    Teams icon pinned in taskbar doesn't blink orange anymore when I receive new messages. I cannot find an option to turn this. Was this removed?

  16. Notifications in Activity Feed for Planner Tasks

    Notifications should be created in the Activity Feed for Planner Tasks, as soon as
    1) Comments get created on Tasks that I'm assigned to
    2) a Planner Task gets completed

  17. Review All Unread Updates

    When there are unread updates, users have to click on every group and direct message one at a time to read the updates.

    In Slack, users have the ability to click an "All Unread" page and then view all the unread updates in one screen (and respond to them here as well).

    This saves users from many unnecessary clicking throughout the day and especially at the start of the day.

  19. Automatic DND when presenting

    Automatically set status to Do Not Disturb/DND when presenting or sharing screen like on Skype. It's very inconvenient when banners for personal chat notifications come up during meetings, sometimes the content is not to be shared with others. If not that then allow for the option to not show actual text in the banner notifications.

  20. 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.
