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.

This needs to be fixed ASAP. piling up message previews in a professional setting does no good. Especially while sharing screen/presenting
Please add this feature. We as a Microsoft gold partner have great difficulties with this not being in MS Teams when we show online demo's of our product.
How do I hide the last line of conversation for all my chat contacts? It's all visible there, very unfortunate! Where can I access the options?
This needs to get added as a feature. This does not work effectively in a corporate setting. I need to instead turn off notifications all together, which means I miss chat messages.
Can we get an update on this item?

This is a necessity. Some of our employees handle sensitive matters, having a message preview appear is not acceptable.
This is a VERY surprising limitation of Teams! Please fix ASAP!
Interesting that this thread got more comments just only recently.
Nevertheless, I'd like to see this feature implemented!
Huge privacy issue, specially during meetings with screen sharing.
Simply don't understand current implementation.
Please fix asap Microsoft
Please address this issue. This is a basic feature of any chat client.
Please fix this. This is such a basic feature for any messaging app. There should be an option to show notifications, but hide message content.

Recently transitioned from engineer to supervisor, now I get a lot more messages, many of them sensitive (confidential strategy updates, team members' personal issues, etc), and I'm also running a lot more meetings directly from my main laptop. I really need to know when people are trying to get my attention on our primary messaging app, but since all notification options prominently display a message preview, the risk is too great to keep notifications enabled. Even an "email only" option would be acceptable.
I find it very odd that Teams hasn't addressed this. Especially concerning when people are sharing screens via video calls / presenting. Should be able to turn off toast notifications without disabling ALL notifications. In exactly the same way as outlook allows you to do.

Completely agree. I wish Teams just flashed on the taskbar when a notification comes in, rather than any pop-up window at all. I need to be aware of when a message comes it, but it's really visually distracting to have something pop up every time someone message.
But, at the very least, the content of messages shouldn't pop up. This is a huge privacy concerns and I was shocked at the lack of functionality in Teams.
Want to turn off the message altogether but leave the red number of notifications
Should have separate options:
1. have messages flash in the taskbar
2. have sender name in the banner but no reveal the content of the message
Urgently fix it!!
Please, fix it!
Microsoft please release the fix sooner
