Turn off message preview in notification toast
Currently, when I receive a message, a preview of this message is displayed in the notification toast. As we will be using Teams at work, it would be great for privacy if I had the option to turn off these previews, so the notification toast will just say "New Message from XY"
This feature team has been aware of this request, and it is under review.
It is causing data breach in our company. How difficult is this to implement?
Or just allow us to disable Banners while blinking notification is still enabled. Thanks.
The notification for messgaes should work the same way as it does in Microsoft Skype. We are not expecting something out of this world!
how dumb you didn't think through this before issuing, This is very first thing messenger should have. Privacy!!!
There are no excuses for this lack of functionality.
Please fix this ASAP
I'm also concerned about this, as it is a privacy issue. The position I'm in means I'm privy to sensitive information about other members of staff, and people come over to my desk multiple times a day. There's a real risk that someone could see something they shouldn't about themselves or someone else, yet turning off all chat notifications means I might miss something important and time critical. I really hope this is resolved soon.

When this feature is going to come, its been couple of years now!
It is quite annoying to see that the messages stacked upon one another appear on the bottom right!, It should only say "New Message arrived" and that too only once when the 1st message arrives not for the subsequent messages that arrive within 1-2 mins.
Changing Notification of Chat messages to "Off" is not the solution as we miss out on some High priority messages!

Please add this! In a meeting it is a distraction at best, and could reveal sensitive company information at worst.
Waiting for this important update
Just got MORTIFIED in a meeting when an inappropriate message showed up on notification. Your competitors allow changing this to just a "New Message Arrived" or similar. I'm going to have to turn off all notifications for Teams so this doesn't happen again. Please take this seriously.
Yes, please add the option to not show to anyone who happens to see my teams window every last and potentially private message.
It is embarassing to see Office not respecting the ecosystem.
The app does not appear in the settings - notifications where every other application is listed and can be banned for notifications.
This is happening on every platform but Windows, really embarassing.
Also, the settings - notifications menu is NOT available on certain flavors of the teams client, which is even worse because it does not respect the users.
This is not a wish, this is a bug!
It's a severe lack. Please introduce this feature ASAP
Please Fix commented
Preview messages are in violation of GDPR and Privacy. But I cannot turn them off, as I will miss important notifications.
Any news on this becoming a feature? Update please?
we all would be really appreciative if Teams would implement this feature asap.
We should not request this but you should have fixed this by yourself, i am perplexed by seeing this under review. #BadAlertInTeams #BadNotificationInTeams
