  1. 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.

    • 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.

      • 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.

        • Ability to Mute a Conversation Thread

          Please allow the ability for individual users to mute replies to a thread they have participated in. Allow this to be a toggle located under the three dot menu or an additional hover button.

          • 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.

              • 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!

                • 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.

                  • 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".).

                    • 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.

                      • 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.

                        • 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

                            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).

                            • 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.

                              • Notifications when files are updated in a Team

                                Team or General channel notifications should be sent when files are updated in a Team. Unless I check every so often, I don't know when files are updated, as the person updating the files doesn't post a comment to the General channel (which I'm following) and updating a file doesn't auto-post a comment to the General channel to trigger watches on the channel.

                                The same is true for new files, but there is also an idea already open for new files: https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public/suggestions/18719107-notifications-should-be-sent-when-files-are-added

                                • 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.

                                    It would be great if the Team application would send an automatic email to members when any changes occurred to the site. Examples would be if a file was changed or added or if a conversation was posted.

                                    • Option Notify Team members when a new channel is created

                                      We would like to notify the team when a new channel is created.

                                      We manage small projects and problem tickets using a Microsoft Team. As the number of channels in our team increase it can be easy to miss when a new project or problem channel is created.

                                      Team member should have the option to enable a notification when a Channel is created. This notification could be implemented as a pop up notification, email, and/or as a card with a button in the General Channel's conversation.

                                      • 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.

                                        • 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.
