Like the fact you can now classify a Chat as being Urgent and the recipient receives a notice every 2 minutes until they acknowledge the Chat. However, you can only use this option when Chatting with one person. Due to the need for business continuity planning and/or disaster recovery notifications, would like to see the capability where you could @mention the Team to allow an entire Team to be notified of an issue/activation of the BCP or declaration of a disaster. At a minimum, would like to see where you could send an Urgent chat to multiple people.
I love to see this funcation in Channel as well. it will more easy to get members attaction in 1 time.

This would be great. There is the option in a chat to change it to important but not urgent to trigger the notification every 2 minutes.
@Jon Webster : my view is the current mechanism for the 'urgent' status is fine. It's a more persistent / invasive notification.
Though an acknowledgement feature for each recipient would be beneficial. Internally here, we encourage people to like the message so we can gauge the reach.

Would each person need to acknowledge or any one person satisfy the requirement for acknowledgement?
