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.

2 and a half years later... Teams that was to replace Lync and Skype does not have the same admin functionality. High priority for compliance.

Yes please :)

Yes PLEASE. Large scale use of Teams is geared toward watching your Activity feed. Bolded channels (often hidden) are not effective of course. But by default everyone's feed is filled with nonsense "Likes and reactions".
Let the user set those to show in activity if they want, but let me set the standard. In theory I send a note to everyone letting them to know how to control it. In practice at least half don't do anything about it, and then complain that they are missing important messages because they were placed in teams. At least let an admin setup the stage for success.
This is ridiculous. Almost 1k votes. Start of 2021.
Seriously! We're at the end of 2020, the year of working at home, and Microsoft has not even mentioned this yet. This is ridiculous.
Really do need this - users are not seeing posts and other users are trying to get around the issue by @mentioning the team in their posts.

This is starting to become critical for us!
We have a strict deletion policy which expunges all Chat messages after 24 hours. Having copies of these same chat messages sent to users' mailboxes is a critical hole in functionality. We must be able to administratively control the various notifications settings for the Teams client.
Most importantly, we need to disable the "Missed activity emails" notification option as well as any other option which can send a notification via email.
This is a must! very frustrating when people do not see the messages sent, not because they do not want, but because they forgot to turn this on! Please make it default on!

For any (small/large) organization, Domain Admin have control what the default setting are in Teams.
These settings must be override by user settings for notification.
Why? Because notification settings are not designed to make a standart notification for a Government agencies.
This is a must in a large organisation. We've set up channels to resolve communication problems, but no-one is communicated by default to the channels.
Admins need ability to manage default communication settings on a per channel basis, or at least each Team.
Would be very helpful feature
Voted up. We've added a couple of users who don't use email often and are missing important emails in all of the notifications!
Would be very helpful to drive adoption / cultural shift!

For Organization wide Teams - The feature should be there for admins or there is no use of it as notification is off for them and we have facility to announce. If Microsoft says its feature there should be a way of properly using it, manually switching notification is not a good advise. Teams admin should be able to control this.
Not everyone in our organization checks teams daily or even weekly which means they miss important notices. Super annoying that they need to manually switch on notifications for each channel.
Other settings are possible, but not this one - why? It is important to give the enterprise administrator a strong admin toolsset. Group policies are the means of choice.
Hi, please can this feature be added, shocked that this cannot be applied by a global/group policy. This would really adoption to Teams.
I Hate MS so much, they add/remove features constantly that make managing users harder. And then when you message support they take you here and half the time, like this one, they're 1-2 years old with hundreds of votes and no response from MS.
I get notifications are probably a personal preference in MS' view, but from a company standpoint we should be able to control who gets what notifications.
I do not understand why MS would not have the foresight to create GPO settings, or more granular Teams Admin center settings for things like notifications, auto-start, etc. for Teams rollout. Adoption has been slower than we'd like because we are not able to configure basic default settings during the rollout. Instead we have resorted to sending out numerous emails to our users explaining how they need to configure their Teams client. VERY FRUSTRATING!!
