@mentions from word, excel, powerpoint and onenote in Teams
Today when you @mention someone in word, excel and powerpoint an email notification is being generated. I can understand in a way it is designed that way but at the same time that goes against how you (MS) is marketing Teams to be the collaboration platform and not Outlook.
I would much rather have the notifications show up in Teams when being @mentioned from a document instead of having an email. Then you can start working right away and continue the comments within Teams. There should be, at least, an option or switch where you can choose to have the notifications in Teams or in Outlook.

I agree! All @mentions across 365 should notify the user the same way! Email or Teams or both -- let the user decide!
Please implement this
Why are there so few Votes for this?
Coming from Google Suite there was a Bot that consolidated any Google Drive Notification Activities (Mentions on Files) into a Channel https://support.google.com/chat/answer/7660707?hl=en
Agree good feature to have

This is a great idea - We need to reduce the dependency of Outlook.
MS Teams is the best collab tool we have and it should show these mentions, regardless where they are created
