How can we make Microsoft Teams better?

Please allow the ability for individual users to mute replies to a thread they have participated in. Allow this to be a toggle located under the three dot menu or an additional hover button.

    I feel like this can't be emphasized enough, there really needs to be the ability to mute conversations you have participated in. I have coworkers that have refused to respond to a conversation in Teams because they don't want to have a ton of notifications from that same thread.

    In addition to muting threads, please add a way to mute notifications when your status is BUSY. I share my screen often in meetings and I can't have notifications popping up.

    I've lost two coworkers from using a TEAMs Group because they didn't want to be copied on all of the notifications. We are trying to get everyone in the company to eventually use TEAMS and this is a big hurdle.

    236 votes... what's taking so long? PLEASE implement this feature. I want to comment and be involved, but getting a million notifications is really distracting.

    Absolutely AGREED! Twitter does this very well with the "mute this conversation" option. And we can also un-mute it at any point, although being @'d should override your mute (great suggestion)!

    While I really want this too, if just the ability to mute notifications on a thread is doable then I’d be fine with this too.

    Has been mentioned multiple times below, but to show absolute enthusiasm, YES, please implement this.

    The feature should have the timer functionality though. E.g. mute for 10 minutes, 30 minutes, 1 hour, 4 hours, 8 hours, 24 hours or mute until user manually reactivates notifications for that particular thread.

    PLEASE consider implementing this. Our company has turned to Teams for every interaction imaginable, and it can get a bit out of hand.

    For example:

    "General it is Meme Day! Not many rules, 1) needs to be original 2) Make good choices- please put new all memes on this thread so we can keep the voting consolidated."
    > 108 replies from you, Foo, Bar, and 38 others

    While many people LOVE to keep up-to-date on the latest in meme trends (108 new messages from the team in an 8 hour period), I would love the ability to mute rampage threads so I can focus on the important notifications.

    yes. some conversations i don't want to hear the notification sound, but the rest i do.

    Ditto Ditto Ditto, Ditto Ditto Ditto. Repeat this comment over and over and over and over, and over and over again and you get the gist on these interrupting notifications we are getting on a particular ever living, no longer relevant threads throughout the day to the computer, phone, and watch. To the point of wanting to unsubscribe to the channel but must for the sake of the job.
