Allow different notifications options on teams and channels
Alex Rogers commented
It would be great to set custom notification options for each Team for which we are a member. I prefer not to remove myself from a Team if I determine that general information will likely not be relevant to me. I wish there was an option to have different notification settings for each Team.

Would love to see an option similar to Slack's where you can hide the actual message in a message notification pop up and just see the sender. I screen share/present to the team a lot, thankfully no one's messaged me anything incriminating but IT WILL HAPPEN ONE DAY

Over two and a half years "working on it".
Over a year since the last "no information" update.
YES for sound! Need a sound notification for when you are working and not staring at computer.

It would be nice to see a Teams banner/activity notifications for a comment made on a task assigned to you in Planner. Right now, you would only see notification through e-mail. But this involves going through different mediums just to know if someone has commented on the task assigned to you.

Agree with so many of the posts below. To be able to roll out the use of Teams instead of our current instant messaging and group messaging program, we need the following changes.
-Clear notifications (preferably flashing icon) so that messages/pop ups don't get missed. Urgent or Important need to be clearly differentiated within the notifications. Perhaps add a flashing taskbar icon as well as the pop up notification.
-Perhaps the flexibility to change notification settings to allow sound if wanted.
-Notification window needs to show in front of all and any windows currently open on screen
-Most importantly for us, is the ability to hide the preview of the message in the notification, this is vital for privacy and we believe we cannot roll this product out until this change has happened.Thanks in advance!
I miss my Skype. If i had an option, I wouldn't even think to migrate to Teams. But then company roll out this team things to all of us and we need to follow. Couldn't believe the notification settings is like coming from a company doing app in early 80s instead of big corporation. Every one can see what people are messaging you by just glance at your shoulder.
Would be a great addition. I miss quite a few notifications simply because there is no sound, and no flashing lights.

Would like to see the icon flash similar to what Skype does so you don't miss messages if you happen to miss the pop up notification

Please continue to work on this option feature. I have a hard time hearing the notifications from this program. I miss a lot of conversations because of it. Thanks in advance
Have the chat window pop open on top of everything. We use to use an old program called MessagePal, and when a chat came through it would jump to the front of all programs running.
Same comment as others...ADD a flashing taskbar icon for new chats (not just a red #1 notification) and allow to HIDE the preview of the message at the same time.
I don't like the fact that I can't have just the banner without sound or just the sound without the banner. We need to make this more customizable for user preference. Or we go back to Skype.
They need to make notifications highly customizable. Everyone wants something different. I don't want banners but I do want sound. Currently I can't have sound unless I also have banner. No bueno. Make notifications highly customizable and make us all happy to have been forced into Teams
The ability to change the notification sound is a pretty popular request for Teams. It spans multiple posts, but all with the general theme of allowing the user to adjust the sound played and the volume. It certainly isn't easy for one whom is hard of hearing, but even worse that a low 'bloop' is the answer to gather one's attention. Some people work in noisy environments.
On multi-monitor rigs, notifications always appear on the 'main' monitor.
This is annoying as I tend to put Teams onto its own dedicated monitor and busy chats mess with my main monitor.
Can notofications simply display on the same monitor that Teams is running on ?
Teams notifications are being missed, notifications need to flash in the same manner as Skype.

We currently use Super Toast by Modality Systems to force a message box to the front and centre of the main screen if Skype for Business messages are ignored. This solution ensures that staff cannot miss chat messages. I appreciate this isn't practical for channels, but for chat messages it would be so helpful to have the ability to turn on a Super Toast-like message box. Our trials have highlighted this as a significant issue for our company.

This needs urgent attention. Many of our Teams users are missing important notifications and this is causing users to use alternative messaging systems.
This is particularly bad on MacOS, where Teams does not even use the built-in notifications system. It is imperative for Mac support that the built-in notifications system is used.
