Allow a notification or multiple notifications to be snoozed x number of minutes. Sometimes it's not possible to reply to a message right away, so having the ability to snooze a notification for 10 minutes for example was a very useful feature of slack, so that I could snooze the notification and be reminded of it at a more opportune time. Giving a range of snooze times is also super handy for accomplishing this, as well as the ability to resnooze for subsequent periods. For example on slack you can snooze a notification for 20 mins, 1 hour, 2 hours, 4 hours, 8 hours, or 24 hours.

I'd take it even further to be able to also alternately snooze all notification alerts (red icons for activity, chat, etc and bolding for activity) as I continue to hear complaints about feeling overwhelmed by the constant communication now that it's largely moved from email to Teams (I consistently see Chat with upwards of 50+ pending). The idea being if I click a snooze button, all alerts are hidden for a specified duration of time (1 hour, 2, 4..) to reduce the psychological pressure of looking at constant backlog while attempting to focus or do deep work. With work centralized in Teams, there's no easy way to escape in the way you can just stay out of Outlook for a period of time. It would help to reduce collaboration overload and enhance focus time and productivity.

This is very much needed.
We are encouraging all internal communication to go to Teams - so I love the thought of being able to "snooze" a message just like I can in mobile Outlook

Add that this should also be per Room or a Meeting Chat. Snooze for period of time to allow any runaway conversations from causing distractions, however will turn back on notifications after period of time to capture any new important notifications.

This needed ASAP. Teams are being pulled down because of simple, sensible and elementary things like these.
This needs to happen! It's way to easy to briefly read a message that requires follow up but not be able to set any sort of way to remind, or schedule that follow up.

This is sorely needed.

I'd like this idea expanded to chat/messages as well, not just things that create a notification.
sometimes a 12 hour snooze is appropriate...….
Great idea, this is the best idea they've had in a while.
I like this idea, in general, but would like to offer an expansion!
I would like to be able to snooze notifications from any specific team for a period of time.
Example: There are some teams I'm a member of where folks ask out for help. Without seeing notifications from that team, I'm rarely going to hop into that team to see where I can help because I'm busy with other things. I'd like to get the notifications on a normal basis, but when I'm diving deep into something I want to be able to snooze notifications from that team for x hours because I'm too busy to respond to casual help requests.
Thoughts? Should I create a separate request?
