  1. Email settings

    I keep getting emails (e.g. when I am unavailable for a chat message) saying "Rather not get these emails? Head over to the app, click Settings and then Notifications to edit your preferences." But, the Windows 10 app has no such setting, or, it is extremely well hidden!

  2. "Notify when available" is not robust enough

    When you've activated "Notify when available", you receive notifications only when the become available or offline. There are no other features or options.

    I would love a notification setting that informed me when someone is Away, or Busy, or Appears Away. as well as when they get back and are available once again.

    Why can't there be a setting to get notified of ALL status changes? This would be VERY useful for management.

  3. Separate Call Notification from Mention & Chat Notification

    Separate the call notification from the mention and chat notification. I don't want a notification going off every time someone chats, but I do need to hear when someone is calling me. I have missed calls from my boss due to this feature.

  4. ability to move incoming call prompt

    when you have an incoming call and the notification pops up in the bottom right hand side of the screen, you loose the ability to answer when a toast notification comes through.

    The toast notification hides the "buttons" stopping you from accepting or denying the call.

    Even trying to move it when an incoming call is happening is not possible.

  5. Notification of members joining meeting late

    When I am hosting the meeting, while meeting has started, I dont see any notification for members who joins late. This should be supported.

  7. Don't display chat notifications for the chat that is currently active/displayed in the desktop app.

    Don't display chat notifications for the chat that is currently active/displayed in the desktop app. I have a chat open and active in the Teams Desktop app on Windows 10 with Teams maximized on one of my monitors and the notification sound and message popup still fire for incoming messages in that chat.

  9. Is it possible to have option for banner to display on bottom left corner instead of bottom right? It disrupts my work on the bottom right.

    Please have option to move notification banner to bottom left hand side or top right corner instead of bottom right corner please. The notifications on bottom right corner disrupts my work. Thank you.

  10. Silence notifications while in a meeting

    I find it annoying that while I'm in a meeting, I get popup notifications for messages being sent in that same meeting's chat. There should be an option that allows for meeting chat notifications to remain on (so that you will be notified when you aren't in the meeting) that becomes silenced once you join a meeting.

  11. Show raise hand notification when Teams window is minimized

    The rise hand feature is very useful, but I don't notice 'rise hand' during Teams windows is minimized. For example, I share my desktop and display the PPT file, the Teams window is minimized. I don't notice participants rise hand.

    Please add notification feature for rise hand.

  13. reminder to respond to chat - move to top of chat list

    in gmail, if you don't respond to an email after a few days, it creeps up to the top of your inbox and gmail asks if you need to respond. perhaps there could be a similar feature with chats? some really get buried for me and i forget i never responded.

  14. sound notification

    It would be very useful to have different sounds for different channels and different chats. I would not have to divert my attention to see who has sent me a message.

  15. Send a notification to the Team about a new time proposal for a meeting in a channel, otherwise noone is informed

    It would be great that all team members get notified of a new meeting time proposal (for a meeting set up within a channel), as otherwise there is no way to know that someone actually had a conflict

  16. Banner notification for meeting attendees in Lobby.

    I schedule a lot of Teams meetings for coworkers, typically external interviews. It would be nice if when an external individual starts a meeting and is in the virtual Lobby, the banner notification alerted me they are in the lobby rather than just that they started the meeting.

  17. Respect MacOS Global Do Not Disturb

    Have teams respect the MacOS global Do Not Disturb instead of having to do it manually in Teams. Manually, you forget to turn it on and off.

  18. Ability to ask teams to notify you when someone status changes to available

    Ability to ask teams to notify you when someone status changes to available. You want to speak to someone but see that they are offline or presenting etc - right click and select "notify when available". When the persons status changes you gat a popup like the new message pop up - telling you that Person is Available Now. It could also tell the other person that I wanted to know when they were available too.

  19. Being able to use "Notify when Available" from any screen

    You should be able to turn Notify When Available on and off from any window not just Chat.
    It is much easier in Skype for Business.

  20. Can you please include "Mark as Read" option in your pop-up notifications.

    Can you please include "Mark as Read" option in your pop-up notifications. This will help to track how many unreaded messages we actually have left.
