  2. channel notifications

    when adding a task into planner, have the email notification tell you what channel it has been assigned to, instead of trying to find it and the email telling you simply that a task has been assigned.

  4. Provide option to suppress "Joined the Team" and "Left the Team" messages in Org-Wide team

    Please provide an option for administrators to suppress the "Joined the Team" and "Left the Team" messages that are automatically added into the conversations stream. This would be a nice feature in any Team, but is really important for the Org-Wide team.

    Because of the nature of our business model, we have a high turnover / churn of employees -- so every day there are multiple messages about who joined the team and who left the team. This noise causes the actual content in the General channel of our org-wide team to be pushed off the page. We try to…

  6. Custom Sounds per Channel Notification

    Each channel notification setting should also be able to add a sound and each should be optional as "per reply" and "per new chat" so this can be really really beneficial. Would allow people that need to monitor multiple chats to know where the activity is without seeing them.

  8. Additional notification settings.

    Allow you to get chat notifications with upgraded settings. Right now you can only get all notifications or none. Should be more options such as receiving only notifications for new chats.

  9. person who creates a new team in Microsoft Teams has the ability to set up notification settings for the members of the team

    From what one of my colleagues has read online, it seems that Microsoft itself has determined what default notification settings exist. I realize that each user can edit their own notification settings. However, the question was asked if the default notification settings can just be set up for everyone by the creator of the team rather than Microsoft itself.

  11. Provide alert settings to notify the start of team meetings

    *English follows Japanese

    Provide alert settings to notify the start of team meetings

    We have no alert settings to notify members when a team meeting started, therefore, please add the alert feature to let members know that with incoming calls etc., as needed.

  13. When an email about activity on Teams is sent, include a specific description of what happened, like Jira does

    When I'm a watcher on a ticker in Jira and someone adds a new comment, I get an email telling me exactly what happened - what the comment was. I can then decide if I need to stop doing what I'm doing and switch my attention to Jira. However when I get an email from Teams its content is just "SOMETHING HAPPENED!" and it's not a value add. Often times people just post a "thumbs up" emoji or talk to each other about topics that don't immediately apply to me (but I'd still like to be informed).
    Please consider this…

  14. feedback

    In general I miss information about when comments from Microsoft is added to issues. It doesn't really help that an issue has 'WORKING ON IT" when there is no information about when this comment was made. In other words you haven't got a clue if the issue is worked on for several years. Nor is there any indication when a solution will be available. And, unfortunately, it seems that the Microsoft Teams Engineers isn't updating the given feedback very often (if at all).

  15. Point on something (e.g. files, chats, etc.)

    If you wamt to show a file or chat or anything in TEAMS, a feature that I can use to draw someone's attention in TEAMS would be great. The person should get a short message with a link. It should be like "pointing to something".

  16. Better Notifications

    There needs to be an optional flashing color notification on the taskbar so we don't miss a message. Sometimes things are time sensitive therefore we need better notifications.

  17. Remove private chat reactions from the activity feed

    The activity feed does not show private chat messages but it does show private chat reactions. This is very confusing. Either the activity feed should show both private messages and private reactions or neither.

  18. Reminder/Snoozes for Saved Items

    When you saved an item be able to set day/week/month reminders and snooze abilities for follow up on saved items without having to create a planner under each team/channel you are under... from your profile instead or maybe even an overall planner from your profile that can have sections of teams and channels

  19. Time-based "Notify when available"

    When we select this option we normally do because someone is offline and so we need to talk to them but once they're online and we contacted them we don't need that notification. I suggest to have another option so that we can select from available options: [Expires after 5 min, Expires after 1 hour, Expires after 5 hours, Expires after 1 day]

  20. Better Message Notification

    We we're using Skype and when a message was sent, it would pop up on the screen. This doesn't do that and we can't tell when we have messages. It's annoying.
