  1. 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.

    • @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.

      • Out of office pop up showing up constantly for all users

        Hi,

        We at work are in a group chat and when someone is out of office, the little grey bar ontop of the chat box keeps showing up with the info that the person is out of office and may not respond.

        You can close it but every time you re-open the chat tab it pops back up.

        This happens for all users in chat (about 20 participants).

        Can we disable this?

        Thanks

        • Microsoft Teams download banner / popup needs to be removed

          When a user in the Office 365 environment wants to use the web version http://teams.microsoft.com, a popup message is visible at the upper area with a prompt to install the client version:
          “Want an even faster, more collaborative experience? Download the desktop app.” By several given security compliance requirements in big IT environments, the users shouldn’t be able to install any additional software at their PCs. This popup is confusing the web-only Teams user and also it makes the software deployment team nervous.

            • Blink on taskbar even when Banner notifications disabled

              Currently, with the Banner notifications enabled, a banner shows up in the notification area when you get a message. After that banner disappears, the taskbar icon for the Microsoft Teams application will begin to flash, until you look at your messages.

              If you disable the banner notifications, the taskbar icon does not flash when you get a message.

              This works as intended only when the Banner notifications are enabled. These are extremely annoying, and I would guess that most users would want them disabled.

              The taskbar should still blink every time a chat message is received when Banner notifications are…

              • Allow Webhooks Extensions to @mention individuals and channels

                The JSON payload used for formatting MS Teams notifications via a Webhooks Extension should allow @mentions to be constructed.

                Similar to how a bot can construct a mention in it's response via <at>@General</at>.

                Without this functionality, there's no way for members of a channel to be notified by the Webhooks Extension without having to first follow the channel.

                In most real world scenarios, following a channel will not suffice — leading to spam and distractions for the team.

                For many, the absence of this capability is preventing the transition from Slack to Teams.

                Use Case 1:
                A dev team needs…

                  • Tag Teammates in Planner Cards & Push Notifications

                    It would be really helpful to add more ways to notify teammates on through planner:
                    -Tag teammates in Planner Card comments
                    -Push notifications for mobile when mentioned in such tags.

                      Download Improvements

                      Generally the download experience with Teams is pretty poor and I'm amalgamating suggestions in to one

                      - Configuration of download location other than default download folder
                      - Download progress and fixing of hanging UI when downloading file
                      - Permanent notification to user in chat/team room or even a downloaded management area showing downloaded files with a direct link to open file
                      - Ability to open file directly from notification
                      - Ability to open folder from all areas download is listed
                      - Ability to download to a different one time location from the file hamburger menu

                        • Sync notification badge count across platforms

                          The unread notifications count needs to be synced across platforms. For example, right now if I read my Teams messages on my Mac, my iOS app will still have a red badge on the app icon indicating I have unread messages. This leads to be constantly opening my iOS app thinking I have missed something, only to see it's messages from hours earlier that I already read on another device.

                          • Notifications within Teams

                            I'd like to see a notification bubble for new posts (of any type) in the Teams I'm in (yes, I'm already following) just as I can see for chats. It's an extra step for me to have to click through the teams to see if there's new activities. I'd like to be notified as soon as activities happen.

                                  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.

                                  • 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.

                                    • snooze notification

                                      Allow a notification or multiple notifications to be snoozed x number of minutes. Sometimes it's not possible to reply to a message right away, so having the ability to snooze a notification for 10 minutes for example was a very useful feature of slack, so that I could snooze the notification and be reminded of it at a more opportune time. Giving a range of snooze times is also super handy for accomplishing this, as well as the ability to resnooze for subsequent periods. For example on slack you can snooze a notification for 20 mins, 1 hour, 2 hours,…

                                      • I am getting "You've got new notifications in Microsoft Teams" emails about messages I've seen and responded to hours ago

                                        Seems like this just started today. I am getting "You've got new notifications in Microsoft Teams" emails about messages I've seen and responded to hours ago, so as today has gone on I am continually getting these emails. It seems like Teams server doesn't realize I'm logged in and using Teams (Win 10 desktop) client and have viewed all messages I've received.

                                        • Use native MacOS Notification Manager

                                          Instead of using a custom notification, please use native MacOS Notification manager. This will allow users to manage notifications consistently with most other MacOS apps.
