  4. 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…

  5. 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

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. Customize notification sounds

    I would like to turn on notification sound for calls only. Today, you can only turn notification sounds on or off for all functions.

  10. Option to mute notifications during calls/meetings

    Audio notifications are proving to be somewhat distracting during meetings. I would love the option to automatically mute these notifications during calls and meetings

  12. 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.

  13. Separate Notification Sounds Settings for Call and Chat

    Separate "Notification sounds" settings for call and chats where I would be able to set notification sound "off" for chats but "on" for (incoming) calls.

  14. Channel Notifications should not be muted by default

    Channel Notifications should not be muted by default. Currently, when I add a Team, the team members have to enable notifications for the general channel and all other channels. The main reason to have this app is to be notified. Why mute notifications by default???

  15. 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.

  17. 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.

  18. pop-up chat

    When you open an individual chat into a pop-up chat window, it would be nice to have the pop-up chat window have it's own badge indicating there are new messages related to the chat. Currently, if the notifications are missed, the entire Teams app blinks orange and not the individual pop-up chat window. A differentiating indicator would be helpful.

  19. Enable notifications for all banners no matter which banner you are in

    We use Teams within our own company, but also as guests within Teams from other organizations that we support. We currently do not receive any real time notifications for banners that we are not currently 'in'. We do not want to get emails for the things we have missed for other banners every time. Please enable mobile and PC alerts for ALL banners you are part of no matter which one you are currently in.

  20. Allow user to centrally manage their notification settings for teams and channels

    Provide an option to manage notification settings for all teams and channels in a single place.

    Presently, if I want to change notification settings, I must visit each and every team and channel to change those notification settings.

    Providing a list view with teams and channels and columns for the various settings would allow an easy way for a user to both see their notification settings, but to manage them in a quick and efficient manner
