  1. Turn off message preview in notification toast

    Currently, when I receive a message, a preview of this message is displayed in the notification toast. As we will be using Teams at work, it would be great for privacy if I had the option to turn off these previews, so the notification toast will just say "New Message from XY"

  2. 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.

  3. Make "Follow this channel" the default setting.

    Usual Microsoft lack of UI intuition.
    Channels should be followed by default with the user unfollowing it if they wish.

  4. Add an option to make Banners "sticky" so they would only go away after being acknowledged or dismissed

    It'd be nice if unread updates to a channel or direct chat would result in a persistent banner that would stay on screen until I read the message or dismissed the notification.

  5. Persistent notification

    I'm using Mac and one annoying thing is that I'm not getting notified of new messages in team channels (whether I'm mentioned or not) because I missed the banner in the top right of the screen, either from being away from my desk or focusing on my second screen. The red icon is added to the actual application icon in the dock menu when I get a direct chat but there should be something here to indicate that team chats have new messages

  6. Add message to "you got a new team"-email

    When I add new members to a team I would like to add a message to the "you got a new team"-email. Just like that I can add a message when I share a file from OneDrive or SharePoint.

  7. Inactive desktop notification period is too short

    I don't want mobile notifications after being inactive for only three minutes on the desktop.

    The period should be configurable or at least 10 or 15 minutes

  8. Include notifications based on keywords.

    We need to get notifications based on keywords. For example: I am a subject matter expert for SAP and I like to know when SAP is typed into a channel so I can offer assistance.

  9. Important Message Notification

    Currently, there does not seem to be any notification on any platform when a message in a Team/Channel is marked Important. Please put an option to be notified for important messages, even if you aren't actually mentioned in the post.
