  1. Chat Notifications

    In Skype for Business, users could get a desktop pop-up notification when somebody sent them a new message. I have searched and cannot find this same functionality in Teams. Is there a plan for Microsoft to implement this same functionality?

  2. Public-facing information for settings in Microsoft Teams admin center

  4. Notifications don't work consistently on Iphone 7. Need support for "older" phones (even if it is less than three years old)

    Notifications do not work consistently on my Iphone7 (less than three years old). Everyone in my office who has a newer phone gets notifications consistently. All other setitngs are the same (we have rechecked countless times). Our conclusion is that it must be a software issue.

  5. Manage email notifications in Teams

    In addition to showing pop-up banner when receiving a message, I would like you to add a setting to always send email notifications to me.

  6. Unhide hidden teams when people are mentioned or tagged @

    When we tag someone from a channel they have hidden, the channel appears unhidden and italicized. Then hidden again after the person views the notification. This is great!

    When we tag someone from a *team* they have hidden, the team remains hidden. It would be great if the team became visible and italicized, with the channel unhidden and italicized as well.

    That way we know that any @ mention will be seen be it in a hidden channel or in a hidden team.

  7. Make the notification banner larger

    We would like the ability to adjust the way the notification box acts and looks. We would like to have control of how long it shows the notification, whether the notification stays on top of other windows, and how large the notification window is.

  10. Deleted chat message should remove/replace any notifications sent to devices

    1. I send a chat message to Person B.
    2. Person B receives a push notification on their iOS device.
    3. I delete the chat message.
    4. The notification Person B received will continue to show the contents of the message I deleted. When they tap the notification, it will open the Teams app, which then shows that the message was deleted.

    The original push notification should be replaced with a new notification where the content says "Person A has deleted this message" or something similar, like how Instagram handles unsent Direct Messages.

    I have not personally tested this with…

  12. notifications

    My company recently switched us from business skype to Microsoft teams. I have noticed that I am missing a lot of my teams notifications and I cannot find where I can change they way I see them. With skype the tab at the bottom of the screen would keep flashing when there was a new message in my team chat which I liked. Microsoft teams doesn't do that so I never know when my teams posts a message.

  13. Fix Notification Emails

    Currently, notifications do not consistently send emails even when 'Banner and email' has been selected. It appears that the emails will only go out if the user has logged out of teams on all devices.

    Please fix so that email notifications are sent whenever they are turned on.

  17. notifications

    I don't get a pop-up notification for any channel (chats, groups etc). However, it works for my other colleagues and all our settings are the same.

    Can anyone provide any insight to this issue?
    Thanks

  18. Want to inform system administrators when we shared files to external users

    I would request a notification feature for Microsoft Teams to send alerts or e-mails to system administrators if we shared files to external users (guest users).

  19. Problems

    I don't know what changes were made to the app, but I no longer receive notifications on the mobile app (my phone). This creates a huge problem when my boss sends me messages and I don't respond because I have no idea there is a new message. I have checked ALL of my notification settings, and everything is enabled. If and when I open Teams, I can see the new messages, but I never receive a notification. Please advise how to fix because Teams is causing huge communication issues.

  20. 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.
