  1. Pause Notifications Temporarily

    When in meetings or other concentrated workflows, it is not easy to pause notifications for a brief period of time without going through the full notifications settings. Can you add a pause feature where you can select the amount of time to pause all notifications?

  2. Uploads notification

    There is currently no setting for new uploads / changes notifications. This would be extremely useful.

  3. "Secondary ringer & Notifications" on various Audio devices.

    Call signals & also notifications should optionally be possible on all audio devices (Skype only allows an additional "Secondary ringer" when someone calls you but notifications only comes to your primary audio device. Would be nice to configure combinations of ringers & notifications on different audio devices that are available like for myself sitting on speakers and headset.

  4. notifications

    I am unable to get any pop-up notifications on my phone from the Teams app. I have checked the following settings: On the app:
    Menu/Settings/Notifications:

    Send Notifications - "Always, even if active on desktop"

    Push Notifications - All selected

    Sound - set on with vibrate

    On the phone:

    Settings/Notifications:

    Teams set to notify

    Advanced:

    Allow Notifications selected

  5. Blink Icon for unread messages

    Teams icon pinned in taskbar doesn't blink orange anymore when I receive new messages. I cannot find an option to turn this. Was this removed?

  6. Silence notifications for selected team

    I am a member of several teams but I only want notifications for my main/home team. Should be able to silence notifications on a per team basis. Per channel for that matter. Do it like Facebook. On any notification you receive, long press and choose "stop receiving notifications for this team/channel/conversation/person"... etc.

  7. Chat notifications are hard to see

    Using the dark theme, I have to hunt around a bit to find chats with new messages. Since the only notification that a chat with a specific person has new messages is that the text is bolded, it's easy to miss. Would be nice if new chats bubbled up to an "active chats" group or something like that. Or maybe a red notification as to how many chats I haven't read, similar to the one on the "Chat" tab, but specific to a chat.

  8. Automatically clear activity when the activity is viewed without requiring switching to the activity page

    I get a pop up notification of a new message in a channel.
    I alt-tab to teams. I'm already in the channel, so I see the new message.
    Why does 'Activity' still have a number telling me I haven't seen this new message? Don't make me switch to the activity page to clear the indicator. Clear the indicator automatically when Teams gains focus with the channel that has new activity already selected.

  9. Automatic DND when presenting

    Automatically set status to Do Not Disturb/DND when presenting or sharing screen like on Skype. It's very inconvenient when banners for personal chat notifications come up during meetings, sometimes the content is not to be shared with others. If not that then allow for the option to not show actual text in the banner notifications.

  10. Add message to "you got a new team"-email

    When I add new members to a team I would like to add a message to the "you got a new team"-email. Just like that I can add a message when I share a file from OneDrive or SharePoint.

  11. Add the option for you to "unmention" yourself in a conversation thread where another user has mentioned you

    Add an option to conversation threads that allows @mentioned users to "unmention" themselves. This will be particularly useful where the user has been mentioned incorrectly (i.e. the wrong John Smith is mentioned) and where the user's part in the conversation has naturally ended and they no longer need to see updates for the thread.

  12. Ability to @tag all members of a team/channel in a message/post.

    Ability to use @everyone or @channel tags to mention everyone on the team or channel in my post.This way, I can ensure that everyone on the team, or specific channel are notified about my message/post (Specifically useful when members have their notification settings are set to "Send me notifications for: Mentions only".).

    we have this!  ·  Suphatra responded

    Just type “@general” in any channel in the team, and it will notify and alert everyone in that team of the message.

  13. Autofollow the channels to get notifications

    It's better every team member to follow the channel automatically (as a default) and if he (she) decides not to receive notifications can unfollow

  14. Chat Pop Ups

    When you receive a chat pop up notification on your desktop can you have an option in notifications to have the message hidden? This way it only shows the pop up notification and who it is from, but not the contents of the message.

    This would be extremely helpful when you're in client presentations or group meetings and are sharing your screen and want to still know if folks are contacting you but do not want the contents visible.

  15. Enable notifications for Incoming Webhook messages

    Whether I follow a channel explicitly or not, no banner notifications or message count indicators show for messages from Incoming Webhooks.

    There is a StackOverflow question for this as well: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/43764022/how-do-you-get-notifications-from-a-webhook-connector-posting

    Thank you!

  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. Upgrade Windows notifications experience

    When my Teams application is minimized and I get a message, a notificaiton pops up on my screen. However, if I DON'T click on it and go to the app directly and view the message that created the notification, the popup on the screen does not disappear. Make it so the notification clears, please.

  18. Archive Notifications

    It is difficult to keep track of what Notifications have been read or responded to. I propose the addition of an archive or hide option to remove Notifications from the list.

  19. 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.

  20. Block notifications on mobile when status is Do Not Disturb

    When status is DND, notifications still come through on mobile (iOS version 1.077.2017072604). Very disturbing when on a phone call.
