  2. Send Email for missed chat

    In Skype even when skype is active if I do not interact with a chat window I receive an email after ~15 minutes to remind me of a missed conversation. Teams should behave the same way and send a notification when I miss a conversation.

    Toast notices are not sufficient in this case as I may not be able to immediately react to an incoming message.

  3. Block channel mentions from specific user

    We have a few users that abuse (channel) mentions and would like to block or mute the notifications/toasts for these users. E.g. a list of users that are blacklisted in the notification settings.

  4. @mentioning non-team members

    Teams is allowing me to @mention people that are not on the Team but they are not getting notifications. Any suggestions/workarounds/fixes?!

  6. Hide popup

    You should be able to disable the popup notification or at least make it private, so that it does not preview the convo. Often times I'm sharing my screen with someone, or pull it up on the large TV in a conference room. I don't want the entire room to read my private conversations.

  7. Notifications should be more manageable. Like in Slack, you can make it so you get a notification but the message doesn't show. MUST HAVE

    I should be able to set it so I get a notification on my desktop when I get a message, but the contents of the message are not displayed, just the sender. OR, no sender or contents. Slack has this. It should be standard.

  8. webcam

    Please make it so that clicking the notification for a call (not the buttons) does NOT answer the call and turn your webcam on. There is a button that does exactly that - one I elected not to click. When you have a popup with 3 options, clicking on the popup itself should NOT CHOOSE ONE FOR YOU.

    Use your imagination if you don't understand why this is an issue.

  11. Notifications are very inconsistent on android

    When I get a new message, whether or not I get a notification for that on my phone feels like a complete coin toss. This has been a huge problem for me, as I've often missed notifications for important messages.

  12. Organisation notifications need to be able to turn off

    Somebody sent me a new organisation invite. I’m too busy to respond/look into that. However, on the iPhone I cannot turn off the notification for this and the red to on the app stays there forever. It would be great to be able to turn that off. Please work on this. Thanks

  13. NOTIFICATIONS. Please ignore everything else and work on this absolutely critical and severely lacking feature.

    Must have options for sound choice or volume. Banners seem to come up once in a while for a microsecond, need adjustment for their placement or duration. This app is a Ninja, I don't see anything all day long, missing messages, and it kills productivity.

  15. Remove Notification if message deleted

    Deleted messages should cause notifications to go away as well as not show up in Activity

  16. Better notifications as a follower of a task

    We used asana before and it was very useful for the person creating a task to be able to specify who the followers of that task should be - rather than people having to opt in to following that task. Those people then automatically received updates.

    I run several busy large teams to would find it useful to receive updates on all tasks I follow as I did in asana. At present, teams doesn't seem to keep me up to date adequately on the tasks I follow. I don't get enough notifications to be able to keep tabs on what…

  17. I updated my mobile app the other day and now I can barely hear my notifications.

    Please make the notifications louder. I don't even hear them half the time.

  18. Activity Feed

    Make the activity feed recognize when I have read something directly from chat/teams.

    I have provided my email address. It is for responding to this feedback. Don't spam me or sale it to a spammer
