Allow 365 Admin to Define Default Notification settings in Teams.
It would be nice to let the Domain Admin have control what the default setting are in teams.
Users can changed them but let the admins change and override with one time Reset. Like a GPO Preference.
Let’s say the users are not ready for emails and Banners and users are freaking out about the number of Alerts from Teams to Outlook. The Admin could reset the setting for all users to Banner only. This would let users change it to email and banner, but the admin could find a setting that works best for the company of users.

Hi, this is indeed very important. My company just switch to Teams and newbies is not noticed about the posts. Missing information is a very critical thing here !
I absolutely second that request. Its 2019 and we still need that urgently.
It's been almost a year since this idea was posted and it got only 28 votes including mine. This is a perfect example of why Teams notification must be turned on by default and the admins be given access to change it according to their company needs. I bet people don't use Teams as much as they could because they don't get notifications by default. I myself being a System Admin had to dig deeper to understand the reason why it is so. If people were to use Teams for a crucial project they'd have to turn on the notification for every single sub-channel and main channel that they're following. Everyone, please vote for this idea so we can empower Teams for our use.
The default is currently Off and newbies are not being notified. It is also the norm for us to want to set "Feed only" and allow users to change that.

Really good suggestion!
Implementing teams we are aiming at reducing the amount of e-mails received - having e-mail and banner as default demands introduction to the settings for end users, to know how to change notifications settings.
