  2. Move the notifications to another area or another screen

    The notifications keep popping up in an area of my screen that I use on a constant basis. The notifications are on top of everything, so I have to mute channels, close the notification, or just turn them off completely.

  3. Notifications needs to be better on android devices. I am having OnePlus running Android Oreo and most of the times Teams doesn't update in

    Notifications needs to be better on android devices. I am having OnePlus running Android Oreo and most of the times Teams doesn't update in background and I don't receive Notifications. I have to rely on mails for updates

  4. Improve message notification

    Having 1 computer 1 phone and 1 tablet with the same team account it happened that I received the notificatin only on one device (the tablet for example) but not on the phone and computer. This induces quite a delay in seeing and acknowlodging the message.

  5. CHAT and CHANNEL notifications need MORE COWBELL

    Too much emphases has been placed on the ACTIVITY screen for CHAT and TEAMS channel notifications and it's not working.

    The application ACTIVITY is a log. The only activity there is logging update activity made somewhere else. That somewhere else is where we need activity updates. I assure you, teams NOT scrolling through the ACTIVITY history log looking for something to do. They're busy doing.

    1. If I'm in CHAT then I expect to see my CHAT UPDATES and NOTIFICATIONS immediately.

    2. If I'm in a TEAMS channel then I expect to see any updates to TEAMS immediately.

    3. When…

  6. Don't keep notifying me. I dismis a reminder (which Outlook had already given me) and it came back. I just turned off Teams notification

    Don't spam me with notifications. Make them behave like all other app notifications. You aren't special. Coordinate with Outlook so I'm not getting notified multiple times for the same event.

  7. notification contact latest

    Chatt notification shows which contact is chatting, only if using 'Latest' list. Not when using the 'Contacts' list. Would be great to be able to know which contact has chatted even when viewing the Contacts. Also, please make the dot a bit larger. Another idea would be to be able to double-click on the chat-ikon itself to get to the chat in question. See screenshots for example.

  8. Option to sync do not disturb status to Outlook meeting

    Hi, I am in client-facing role, and it is awful when banners keep popping out on presentation. Currently, Teams sync to my outlook meeting with Busy status.

  10. Make teams more Transparent.

    When adding a new conversations in teams enable automatic notifications instead of having you tag the conversation.

    Being forced into Teams from Slack because of politics, I´ve noticed our teams are missing out at a lot of conversations in teams. A problem we didn´t have in Slack, cause everybody saw everything and were able to filter out if it was relevant or no and then could disregard it at a glance or answer fast.

    What we notice in Teams is that conversations that wasn´t tagged became unoticed. Which is commonly to forget if you are a bit un the run…

  11. Have notification settings in Teams itself

    Can notifications settings be adjusted within Teams, rather than requiring us to go to another place, like Sharepoint?

    Some have suggested "Flow" for managing notification settings. I find it highly inconvenient that Flow is not just a function, but a separate app of its own.

  12. I have two separate teams memberships and I would like to see when I get a notification on either..

    I have two separate teams memberships and I would like to see when I get a notification on either. As it currently stands I do not get notified with new material on separate channels so in order to see if anything is happening in other memberships I have to make random checks throughout my day.

  13. notifications in iOS not appearing.. Direct chats, followed channels etc.

    Notifications stopped appearing in iOS again, even with "always" configured in notification setting. Includes direct chats, followed channels etc. This isn't limited to one user. running latest iOS app, and most up to date windows 10 client. Why does this keep happening?!?!

  14. Notifications: Present Window When Message Is Received

    Provide an option for Teams to present itself to the user when a message arrives.

    Example:
    User has Teams minimized.
    Message arrives in teams.
    Teams window is unminimized and presented in front of all other windows.

  15. Opt out of Notifications on a channel unless ....

    Opt out of Notifications on a channel(s) unless my name is specifically called out, or a specific customer's name word or phrase is used.

    I don't need to see notifications on everything that happens. I don't need to hear about every piece of chatter. I'm not directly involved in the same activities. Unless it's my name or specific phrase (customer name), don't notify me.

  16. busy

    Teams always seems to be in "BUSY" status. Support advises we have to hover or constantly use Teams for this to switch to Available. Manually switching to Available only works for a while then automatically switches back to Busy. Really?

    So if I'm working in Word all day and not "chatting" with someone I'm automatically busy. Poor design. Give us options, allow us to tell the system what to look for to switch to busy. Meetings with other apps (Yes, like Zoom, GTM, etc) Tie to Tapi, etc. Zoom has so much potential but lacks 100% what it really needs.

  17. Remove notifications for muted members

    Notifications for muted members remain at the top of the desktop app. The only way to make them disappear is go to the Settings tab. However, once you leave the Settings area, the notification reappears and won't go away.
