  1. @mention Post From Flow Does Not Work

    When using Flow to post a message to a Team channel, the @mention does not trigger a notification. The text of the message is simply the "@mention" that was typed. Please enable a text recognition of @mention to enable the notification as though it were being typed directly in Teams.

  3. Can we get an option to change the ringtone

    Since everyone use the same ringtone, you sometimes do not know that your phone is the one ringing

    The sound you updated to during the week of March 6 is HORRIBLE. Please give us an option to change sounds for chat notifications the same way we can change sounds for the phone calls

  7. Add whole mention text to email notification

    I receive notification emails for personal and team mentions. Some are important but many are not. However the email doesn't have enough of the message to tell, so I have to log in to teams and open my activity just to see that someone posted a picture.

    Please include the whole conversation message in the email notification.

  9. Important Message Notification

    Currently, there does not seem to be any notification on any platform when a message in a Team/Channel is marked Important. Please put an option to be notified for important messages, even if you aren't actually mentioned in the post.

    This item is still under review by the feature team. I hope to have a decision soon to share with you.

  10. Missed calls in Microsoft Teams should trigger email to Outlook

    I have checked with Microsoft Premier Support and they have confirmed that users will only get notification for missed calls in the Teams app. Email notification is only for the missed messages in Teams, and this is the expected behavior.

    But I found it strange why only calls are being excluded from email notification? Isn’t calls more important than message as people can always send email as alternative to chat?

    Furthermore, Team’s setting is called “Missed activity emails”, which the missed calls fall under, this is very confusing to users.

    Please include missed calls in email notification!

  12. Banner notification on second monitor

    I, and many of my colleagues, do many presentations using screen sharing to potential customers. I share my primary monitor to the customer, but the second monitor is offstage. It would be most helpful to have a setting of where the banner notifications appear (on which screen/monitor). I like getting the notifications, but I need them to show up "offstage" instead of on my primary monitor.

  13. Mark message as read directly from notifications.

    We send/receive a lot of short messages that can be read in their entirety from their notifications. Since there's no way to mark a message as read directly from the notification, we basically have to dismiss the message "twice": clear the notification itself and then click into the desktop app to clear the red unread badges. It would be great time/click saver if there were a way to mark a message as being read directly from the notification itself.

  14. Teams does not respect "Do Not Disturb" on MacOS.

    When I set my Mac to "DO NOT DISTURB" Teams still pops up notifications. This is really annoying when I'm sharing my screen in a meeting.

  15. Channel notification settings: ability to change default via admin center

    Please add via Teams admin to change the default Channel Notifications for "All New Posts" to Banner and Feed" vs default to "off."
    This is very important vs relying on team members to change this setting themselves per channel.

    Let them change it if they don't want to receive notifications for certain channels. If you have over 30 channels and like 10 different teams, going through them all to change this settings is terrible especially if you NEED the notifications for the majority of them.

  16. Allow us to turn of flashing taskbar notifications

    Flashing taskbar notifications are a bit annoying, and it would be nice to have the option to turn off that flashing (while keeping popup notifications enabled).

  17. Add an option to make Banners "sticky" so they would only go away after being acknowledged or dismissed

    It'd be nice if unread updates to a channel or direct chat would result in a persistent banner that would stay on screen until I read the message or dismissed the notification.

  18. notification reminders

    Being able to set reminders for messages received, whether it be a group chat or private. As simple as hovering over the message and maybe clicking a drop down box (where other options such as edit, save, or delete message would be) then clicking "set reminder" and then just set a desired time.

  19. Notification Sounds

    Please add different notification sounds, and a way to change those. Skype was wonderful with this. Please add a similar feature back to Teams.

  20. Allow for Secure Notification Banners without Text

    Please allow for Banner notifications to have a function where the banner only shows who the message is coming from and not display text. This is a more secure/private notification function that is easier to recognize than a the desktop icon that blinks.
