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.
Due to a priority shift we need to move this one onto the backlog again.
I’ll keep you posted once we can pick up the forward momentum again.
This would be very helpful! We have 24 channels that will have a lot of activity, but 2 in our Team people only need to be notified when the term "ICP" gets posted in any channel.

this is the kind of feature that once you've had a platform (like Slack) that has it, it kind of becomes a necessity in any new platform.

In my opinion, this is almost necessary functionality. Even IRC clients do this.

This would really help, because people sometimes misspell my name and/or nickname.
I'd like to add the different spelling varieties of my name that I have seen to a keyword notification list, so I know when people try to mention me.

This will be a nice feature. I figure it is similar to setting rules for emails in outlook. As an extension, I would also ask to keep the notification for messages tagging me on the screen till I click any of pending notifications.
At my company, we use Teams to share important updates, than sometimes need to be referenced weeks or even months later, but scrolling up to find them when 20+ posts are made a day is impossible, especially with the lag that causes scrolling to reset to the bottom after scrolling up to a certain point.
Please institute a search feature that allows you to find threads/ posts based on date or keyword, or identifying factor that will take the scrolling from 5,000 messages down to a more reasonable 50.
I just need to find information posted in June, it's now mid-August and this information is more or less inaccessible.
It would certainly help to have this capability.
A really useful feature to add
Anytime your @username is mentioned by a teammate, Teams should send you a notification. We should also be able to set up notifications for specific keywords so that you’re alerted to conversations or topics that are important to you.
For easy scanning, your keywords will be highlighted in yellow.

We are reviewing the option of switching from slack, This is the first thing i noticed missing. Its pretty big too.
Steven Michael commented
Agreed. We just transitioned from Slack to Teams. The keyword notifications are how I did most of my...Slacking. This is sorely missed in Teams.
it would be good if you could get notified when a Chat references a key word eg. whenever "Norway" is mentioned within a Team or channel
Lack of keyword notifications is a deal breaker for several of our teams.
Notifications of unread messages and syntax highlighting for code blocks.
Paul Cook commented
Agree. This is a function that we used heavily in Jabber and Mattermost and is something that we miss when using Teams.
Implement the Topic Feed as well established in Skype for Business.

Syntax highlighting for better collaboration; slack does this great

In Slack there is the ability to define specific words, that triggers notifications.
Fx. your nickname, project keywords and so on.
This should be possible in the notifications settings.
