  1. React to chat popup notifications

    When a chat notification comes in, allow users to react (like/dislike/etc.) to the message without having to focus on the full chat window. Many times throughout the day, I'd just like to acknowledge the message that just came in, instead of switching context to continue the chat.

  2. Banner notification for Calls

    There is no option allowing a banner notification for incoming call. Should users have Microsoft Teams window minimalized they miss calls.

  3. I'd like the notification for new message on the task bar to blink - apparently it just lights up on the app icon. Easy to miss messages.

  4. Set notifications for many channels at once

    I would like a way to easily set my notification preferences for more than one channel at a time. Currently, if I have 50 channels and want notifications for 20 of them, I have to dig into the sidebar and set my notification preferences for every single one. A dialog where I can view all channels and set my preferences by selecting checkboxes would solve this.

  6. Be able to see timestamp of a reaction to a post or comment.

    Saw notification that someone had commented in a conversation but there were no obvious comments. Looked like maybe it was for a thumbs up on my comment but there was no way to see the timestamp of that thumbs up that I could see (tried mousing over).

  8. Auto status change for quiet houre

    I want to be able to change my status automatically with quiet hours, this stops users from reaching out to me outside of my working hours.

  9. Notification when a document has been edited

    There seem to be multiple requests for this type of a notification, but I'm adding a new one so that I can be more clear than some of the other comments.

    We collaborate on multiple documents. We circulate them to several people on the team. Currently, the only way we know if edits were made (by multiple people) is if we open in the desktop app and under the Review tab select the option to show markup by specific people. This is time-consuming. We'd love a notification in the Team letting us know that a document has been edited.

  11. Multi-display notifications

    Chat notifications appears only on the primary display. However, when you are working with multiple displays and focusing on something, you can easily miss a notification, even an important one.
    It would be a good thing to have notifications on all displays.

  13. Teams email notifications not showing full/correct Display Name and formatting

    Teams email notifications should have more options to configure, or show the whole Display Name in email notifications for users that are trying to reach you by default, rather than just their First Name.

    There can be multiple common first names in the company, and others that have both 2 first names with no hyphens - Lisa Marie Smith, or 2 last names with no hyphens - Lisa Smith Thomas.

    In these cases you receive email notifications such as 'Lisa mentioned you Company Team' and you won't have any indication on which Lisa this is, and in the case of…

  15. Add a "Mark as Read" button to the pop up Banner

    In the current Pop-up Banner, add a button to mark it as read, like in Outlook. This is especially useful for short notes, like OK or Thanks, or for the like you get on a chat. I just don't think I need to go into the app to clear my notifications.

  16. Who view post/comment

    It would be best if there is a feature which would allow users to know who in the group viewed post or comment.

  17. Setting to receive email notifications even when active

    By adding a setting to receive email notifications even when active, I think that the range of information confirmation of users will expand

  18. Instant Message - Notifications

    The IM feature needs to have more control over the sound of the alerts (MUST BE LOUDER) and, when a message is sent, it should stay on the screen until the receiver opens the message. (or at least have an option to allow this to happen). IM's get sent and unless you are staring at your screen, the message is often missed for a very long time.

  19. Do not require use of Google Services for notifications

    Do not force users to have to use Google Services for notifications. There are many reasons to choose not to have these services loaded and it is quite surprising to see Microsoft require Google for it to function.

  20. Push notification privacy.

    Notification shows WITHOUT the text of the chat message. For example: "Jane Doe sent a message" , "Alex Johnson sent a file"
