Reopen "Allow setting to remove message contents in banner alerts"
Was marked as completed with no option to make further comments, I think this was incorrect and that it should be reopened.
There is still no option to hide the message, DnD status is a separate feature. A specific option to hide the text would be safer as you could forget the DnD status or it might be a situation where DnD is not appropriate but you still do not want people around the see the message.
Furthermore, when an idea is set to complete you should have a feedback phase where you let people comment for a week or so to see if it has been resolved to everyone's satisfaction.
when can we get this feature? this is major issue for me. we can share screen many ways not just Microsoft Teams share. Please is a big privacy concern.

This is needed, there are a massive amount of open issues all asking for the same thing in different ways. Bottom line is we do not want the contents of our messages displayed through banners. Period.
The original feedback "Allow setting to remove message contents in banner alerts" was closed as done. But, MS implemented something different to what was asked for!
I do not ever want the contents of any message to appear in a banner. This should be the case regardless of whether or not I am in presentation mode. I often show my screen to colleagues looking over my shoulder, and they should NOT be able to see messages that are sent directly to me. Banners should just tell me who a message has come from and allow me to click them to open up the client to read the message there.
we need the ability to hide message contents for all alerts.
I cannot believe this massive oversight. And this excuse of a workaround with the DND feature is laughable at best. I am a manager having people by my desk all the time. What is the use of banner notifications if I have to turn them off basically all day long?
Please add the SIMPLE option of hiding the content of the banner. Nobody needs to read the banner, they just need to be notified that someone said something to them... This is the definition of a notification.
This gross oversight is inexcusable!
I absolutely agree with this post. I had the same thoughts when I saw that last item was "completed". There should be a simple check box in the notification settings that says "hide contents of message in banner".
It is very valuable to see who is messaging you, but not always the contents. If I see it is someone who would need an urgent reply I can open teams, but if someone is standing by my computer they can't just read all of my messages. I shouldn't be expected to switch to DnD whenever someone walks over to my desk.
