  1. Unite notifications from multiple applications

    I don’t think it’s necessary that I receive duplicated notifications from different type of Teams apps that I’m using; Teams desktop app and web app. I’m using Windows OS and receiving messages from both apps, so I would like you to unite those two types of notification messages into one.

  2. Number of Notifications on Task bar and Notification sounds

    There should be a number of how many notifications on the MS Teams logo in the task bar. Just like other messaging applications like for example Viber, there is a number 1, 2, 3 and so on if there is a message that hasn't been read yet.

    See attached sample screenshot wherein my Viber application shows a new message that has not been read. MS Teams don't have that. Please address this as this may help us, users, to enjoy MS Teams more.

    Also, there should be some sort of a sound when someone drops a message or update the…

  6. Remove multiple notifications when someone is out of office. This is maddening and completely unnecessary.

    Currently, the out of office setting from Outlook is triggering an out of office pop up EVERY SINGLE TIME we go back into a chat in EVERY SINGLE CHAT that the person who is out of office is in. This is maddening and very distracting. We had a person on medical leave for a month and and single day, multiple times a day, we had to close out the pop up stating that he was out of office. Please provide an option to either only show one time or turn off completely in Teams since we already get the reply…

  7. Allow Turning Off Notifications when notified

    When I turn on notifications for a user, allow the ability to turn that notification off during the notification prompt letting me know they are available. Currently I have to back into contacts to do that. Please allow that ability during the notification. Thanks!

  8. Need a feature to provide automated reply for once in every new conversation in a Channel

    We create a channel to communicate with multiple users on various topics. So, we would like to notify once for every user who opens a new conversation to make use of single thread for further discussions on the same topic.

  9. Give ability for users to have a daily digest emailed to them of files uploaded into Teams and a preview of conversations, just like Yammer

    Give ability for users to have a daily or weekly digest emailed to them of files uploaded into Teams and a preview of conversations, just like Yammer allows users to do so. Other systems I use do this and then I know what I can go look for.

  11. Want to edit contents or format in notification mails from Microsoft Teams

    It would be great that you could provide an edit feature for Teams notification mail because;
    1) We don’t identify staff by their first name, so we want to find staff name with their first name and sir name in notification mail body.
    2) We rarely email in English, so we want to change the language in title or some messages into our language.

  12. Behavior on alert policies

    *English follows Japanese
    ■Title(件名):
    アラートポリシーの動作について

    Behavior on alert policies
    ***************
    ■Description(内容):
    アラートポリシーにて、OneDrive for Business のファイルを共有をした際にアラートで通知されるような設定をした際、Teams のチャットでファイルを添付した際にも通知が送信されるため、Teams での共有時には通知がされないよう※つで設定できる機能の拡充を希望します。

    If you set an alert in alert policy to notify when sharing files in OneDrive for Business, the notification will be sent when attaching files to Teams’ chat, too.
    We hope to have a setting to not send notifications when users attached a file to Teams chat in the scenario mentioned above.

  13. The toaster notifications should report the speaker not the channel

    If in a multi party direct message conversation it always shows the notification as if its the first person alphabetically speaking. It should show the person actually talking.

  14. Teams UAC prompt without Office Click To Run

    When launching Teams on a machine without Office Click to Run installed, you are prompted for admin credentials. Causes issues in environments that were deployed with the standalone machine installer, or the user installer.

  15. Status - Manage Notifications (new feature)

    I love the new Status feature that shows the availability of a selected person's on-/offline state.

    Can the notification information also show in the Activity Feed, instead of just a popup?

  16. Can we please have a more significant "warning" when there has been a new message / call received while we were AFK ?

    Right now the tiny red "number" displaying on the Teams icon in the task bar can be quite hard to notice, especially on larger monitors. Most apps I've had that had messaging capabilities would flash/pulse as long as there are unread messages. Could we have something like this to make it easier to know when we have missed messages / calls in Teams?

  17. Missed calls in Microsoft Teams should trigger email to Outlook

    I have checked with Microsoft Premier Support and they have confirmed that users will only get notification for missed calls in the Teams app. Email notification is only for the missed messages in Teams, and this is the expected behavior.

    But I found it strange why only calls are being excluded from email notification? Isn’t calls more important than message as people can always send email as alternative to chat?

    Furthermore, Team’s setting is called “Missed activity emails”, which the missed calls fall under, this is very confusing to users.

    Please include missed calls in email notification!

  18. DO NOT prompt when new users join

    Hey all,

    Please DO NOT prompt me with a "notification", "alert", "message" when a new users joins Teams or joins a Team I'm a part of. If I want Facebook in office, I'll install Workplace. Don't lose your mojo following annoying online trends.

    Best wishes

  19. Chat Notifications

    In Skype for Business, users could get a desktop pop-up notification when somebody sent them a new message. I have searched and cannot find this same functionality in Teams. Is there a plan for Microsoft to implement this same functionality?

  20. desktop notifications are easily missed

    It was smart to make android notifications depending on a status on the desktop.
    Please consider window state "minimized to tray" equal to "away" status without a timer.
