Channel or Team Notifications
Teams does not provide any notification when someone posts to a Team channel. We have people not realising that someone's said something in a channel because people expect to have a notification that this happens. No one constantly checks Teams to see if there has been any activity.
Could there be a banner notification at least on a "per-Team" basis telling us someone has posted something to one of our channels?
At a minimum, some kind of generic notification that activity has occurred within any one of your Teams would be useful.
Agree with everyone else. Notifications for Channels or Teams is a must have to make the service useful.
Teams could be SOOO much more if it is possible to manage the notifications per channel.
We created a channel for planned maintenance on servers, but without notifications, we realised that no one actually sees it....
Teams is virtually useless without notifications. Come on Microsoft, please think through things at least a little bit before you push stuff out.

Yes, please. Although thank you to Aakash for reminding me of the "follow" feature; something I apparently used to know but forgot along the way.
No longer receiving notifications for team chats on my desktop, but do when I use my laptop and have verified that settings are the same. Several users on my team are experiencing the same issues.
is it possible to have the same type of notifications in Team Channel conversations like private chat conversations?
In case this helps:
If you right click the Channel and select "Follow", it will raise a notification.
If the channel is important, you can also force the Channel to be available to be available to everyone.
Note that you can also use @mentions to explicitly call attention to a specific posting using the "@" sign followed by the name of the channel.

We definitely need this feature. The notifications should also go into the Windows 10 notification area.

At the same time, it would be good if notifications appeared in the Windows 10 notification area.
Dear Microsoft, we need this feature absolutely. A lots of communication is delayed because the team members do not notice new answers in channels or teams. Please help us, perhaps like in whats app, where you can set up the notifications by yourself. For example I can disable notifications for groups but enable notifications if I was mentioned in a team.
That would be awesome.

Yes we need this feature!! What is the point of having channels if I don't know when something happens in it.
Matt Thomas commented
This is so TRUE and needs to be added feature. There is no way of knowing who add to the conversations board unless you manually log in periodically. Pretty basic and should have been rolled out from the beginning.
