    • Create alias mention groups, or mention DLs like @here (Slack has this)

      Can we @mention everyone in the team at once (group) instead of using @ for every single name?

      Also, can we use a different first name than the system because people goes by different name?
      It will help if we can copy and paste the @ mention for new conversation.

      Basically, I'm looking to be able to create an "@" alias for different groups of people within a team.

      Use Case:
      We have a team with 3 designers, 2 mobile devs, 2 strategists, and 2 web devs. It would be nice to have the ability to set up tags like…

      • Download Improvements

        Download Improvements

        Generally the download experience with Teams is pretty poor and I'm amalgamating suggestions in to one

        - Configuration of download location other than default download folder
        - Download progress and fixing of hanging UI when downloading file
        - Permanent notification to user in chat/team room or even a downloaded management area showing downloaded files with a direct link to open file
        - Ability to open file directly from notification
        - Ability to open folder from all areas download is listed
        - Ability to download to a different one time location from the file hamburger menu

          I am unable to get any pop-up notifications on my phone from the Teams app. I have checked the following settings: On the app:
          Menu/Settings/Notifications:

          Send Notifications - "Always, even if active on desktop"

          Push Notifications - All selected

          Sound - set on with vibrate

          On the phone:

          Settings/Notifications:

          Teams set to notify

          Advanced:

          Allow Notifications selected

          • Out of office pop up showing up constantly for all users

            Hi,

            We at work are in a group chat and when someone is out of office, the little grey bar ontop of the chat box keeps showing up with the info that the person is out of office and may not respond.

            You can close it but every time you re-open the chat tab it pops back up.

            This happens for all users in chat (about 20 participants).

            Can we disable this?

            Thanks

            • Mute a channel - (Mute Chat is complete)

              I'd love to keep groups/channels in my list, but mute a channel so I don't get those. I get notified whenever some tags a channel eg @General, it's super distracting!

              Also would like the possibility to mute a group chat, so no sound or mobile notification should be received for a user that chooses to mute some group chat.

                working on it  ·  Warren responded

                Mute a channel is still being worked upon. The team is still hard at work on this item. No updates at this time.

              • Add the option for you to "unmention" yourself in a conversation thread where another user has mentioned you

                Add an option to conversation threads that allows @mentioned users to "unmention" themselves. This will be particularly useful where the user has been mentioned incorrectly (i.e. the wrong John Smith is mentioned) and where the user's part in the conversation has naturally ended and they no longer need to see updates for the thread.

                • Change color of new message notification

                  The Teams notification button in the Taskbar turns red when a user is busy/in a meeting. It also turns red when you receive a message. The color shouldn’t show red for both as it's confusing. Please change the color for new messages. Pop-up notifications of receiving a message isn’t usable as I’m constantly conducting demos and showing my desktop. As a workaround for every meeting (several times a day), I have to manually set my status to “Available.” Otherwise I can’t tell when I receive a new message. Please change the color to show for new messages!

                  • 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.

                    • Blink Icon 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?

                        Would be nice if it was possible to change to different notifications settings depending on what status you have.

                        • Channel or Team Notifications

                          Teams does not provide any notification when someone posts to a Team channel. We have people not realising that someone's said something in a channel because people expect to have a notification that this happens. No one constantly checks Teams to see if there has been any activity.

                          Could there be a banner notification at least on a "per-Team" basis telling us someone has posted something to one of our channels?

                          At a minimum, some kind of generic notification that activity has occurred within any one of your Teams would be useful.

                            ■Description(内容):
                            メールボックス容量やサーバー負荷の可能性を考え、管理者で Teams 利用ユーザーの通知設定を一括で実施したいが、現在は各ユーザーで通知設定を変更する機能のみとなっている。
                            管理者で Teams 利用ユーザーの通知設定を一括で設定する機能の実装を希望します。

                            To keep the server load and the mailbox capacity in proper level, admins should be able to change the notification settings of Teams users all at once. However, each user has to change the setting by themselves for now.

                            For improvement of manageability, allow admins to change the notification settings of Teams users all at once.

                            Thank you for your consideration.

                            • Microsoft Teams download banner / popup needs to be removed

                              When a user in the Office 365 environment wants to use the web version http://teams.microsoft.com, a popup message is visible at the upper area with a prompt to install the client version:
                              “Want an even faster, more collaborative experience? Download the desktop app.” By several given security compliance requirements in big IT environments, the users shouldn’t be able to install any additional software at their PCs. This popup is confusing the web-only Teams user and also it makes the software deployment team nervous.

                                Instead of using a custom notification, please use native MacOS Notification manager. This will allow users to manage notifications consistently with most other MacOS apps.

                                    I always miss notifications and meetings in Teams. Need more control over notification settings.

                                    • Mute channel timer

                                      Great work on the new mute channel/chat feature. However, I think this would be vastly improved by adding a timer funtion (like facebook messenger). This would allow you to permanently mute a channel/chat or mute it for a set period (30 mins, 1 hour, 4 hours, 1day, 1 week for example).
                                      This means that when you are concentrating on work and don't want notifications popping up every second for stuff that is currently irrelevant, but don't want to miss future team chats it gives that ability. I hope that explanation makes some sense.

                                      • When quiet hours is enabled, allow notifications to silently go to the action center, don't completely disable them

                                        When quiet hours is enabled, toast notifications should be disabled, but notifications should still stack up in the action center to be actioned on/reviewed at a later time.

                                        • Reply desktop notifications to a topic should contain the text of the reply

                                          When I'm not particularly participating in a discussion, I see the reply notifications, but they don't contain any of the text in the reply (screenshot attached).. so to find out what's been said, I need to switch to Teams and go see.

                                          It'd be super useful if it contained the text of the reply so at a glance I can see what was said (just like chat notifications do) and decide whether to go and contribute to the topic.
