    • Add Option to Always send Toast Notification even while the Teams window is Active

      Some of our techs are complaining that they sometimes miss notifications because the window was up on another screen and they didn't get the Toast popup. We came to Teams recently from another chat app that had the option to "Always Notify" regardless of the status of the chat client's activity or focus. Most users wouldn't like this feature, but a few might appreciate having the option as an opt-in checkbox.

        • Audible notification suggestion when conversation in focus but not visible

          Would prefer audible notifications for all messages from certain people, regardless of whether or not window is in focus. Sometimes I have my back to my PC and when someone messages me. Even though the window is hidden by another and the conversation was still in focus, no audible notification is sent. Would prefer to be able to set that for all conversations, or even specific users if possible.

          • Better highlighting of what group or individual chat is selected

            Right now, when you have a particular chat selected, it's just black as opposed to dark gray, which can be difficult to see sometimes. The selected chat should be highlighted in a more contrasting color so that its easier to tell what chat you have selected and are going to be talking in.

            • Notifications are not working

              Sound/banners/emails are not working for the past week. I did not see this on the Known Issues page - but there are other users having this problem. Any update?

                    Should be able to change how a link reads (I'm pasting the link in "conversations") ... just like one can in any other MSO application ... right-click > edit hyperlink > text to display

                    • Allow me to put an alert on another user

                      As a Teams user, I would like to be able to set an alert on an individual user so that I know when they are available and I can engage in communication with them rather than having to constantly check their status myself.

                      • Notification sounds for all new incoming messages has stopped working. If you have the conversation minimized, it no longer notifies you

                        Since the 8/13 update, new messages in a chat no longer get a notification sound. If you minimize your chat, you will NOT KNOW if someone sends you a message. Is this being fixed??

                        • Accessibility Improvements

                          MS teams does not work with any screen readers. I have had much difficulty trying to find a screen reader that works with MS teams and had no success. The Microsoft Narrator does not work consistently enough to be reliable and it works far better than any other reader I know of with MS teams.

                          • sounds

                            I think it would be amazing if the desktop app had the ability to customize different alert sounds for different contacts, so when you are working, you would know who sent you a chat message based on that contact's unique alert sound and you would know if it something you can ignore for a bit or if it needs immediate attention.

                              When mouse hover the message from the others, it will hide some of the content which is really not convenient for copy and read.! Hope this could be improved.

                              • we need teams to stop jumping while we are typing or reading

                                keep the screen in teams daily chat from auto moving and/or auto updating it's terrible

                                I even have times it goes three days back. We shouldn't need to exit out of the application to have this fixed or resolved.

                                  With the recent update, notifications do not appear on the Mac version of Teams. I have the mobile app set to always alert as well, and I get a quick notification on mobile that clears immediately (when the Mac client is minimized). I suspect the client is marking messages as read prematurely.

                                  • Newbie Mode

                                    In group channels, if someone enters a message via "Type a new message" area (instead of replying to an existing thread) Teams will ask if they are sure they wish to create a new thread. (Of course the usual options in the prompt to disable asking again in the future.)

                                    I would also change the "Type a new message" to "Start a new thread"

                                    Perhaps replace the "Reply" button with a "Type a response" box.

                                    • Use something other than a red circle to indicate busy status

                                      In every other meeting app that I use a red circle means "recording". The red circle that indicates a "Busy" status constantly freaks me out because I think an app is recording audio or video. I'd love something different here.

                                          When creating a link in a wiki page, the dialog screen disappears when Teams not in focus.

                                          This makes creating new links particulary difficult when copy pasting from a specific website (browser in focus).
