  1. Office 365 Team

    Office 365 Team notifications show on the left bar side in Activity, It would be more catchy and clear if it shows on the header bar on the right side near the profile icon

        • Give us an option to upgrade or not on windows 10, the worst operating system you ever produced.

          Please give your customers the option to upgrade windows 10 or not. In my opinion the worst windows operating system ever, I would rather use windows 3.1.

            • I keep getting notification spam from teams I'm interested in, so I joined but not directly part of e.g. same team but overseas counterpart

              Getting too many notifications from the boss of the Australian team. I joined that team because I used to be part of it, but I get all the announcements which I really don't need

              • Option to filter banner notifications by priority users

                In the notification settings, allow an additional option like "Banner filtered by priority users".

                Can use the list of priority users defined in the privacy dialog

I need two access and set up at the same time. Otherwise I can miss the homeworks or notificaitons.

                    • Notification at bottom of conversation when someone is typing.

                      Like Skype, when someone it typing, it shows a message at the bottom of the window that "Joe is Typing".

                      Can we have the same functionality in Teams?

                      • Allow me to get notifications without having the app opened.

                        I don't get any notifications on my phone when someone messages me. Including when they tag me. It is incredibly inconvenient

                        • persistent activity flag

                          For the Activity badge, keep it active as long as there are unread activities. Right now, when you click on the Activity tab, the highlight and badge immediately goes away.

                          • On phone/PC,unread events counter notice on icon Needs unique notice for 1:1 unread chat responses. Too many of them now are low value to me

                            Basically, when someone pings me with a 1:1 chat comment or question I want to know right away. On Skype it only was it 99% 1:1 initiated notifications (if I am doing other things on PC or phone) but a box popped up in lower right corner to alert me.

                            Teams isn’t as obvious and the notification indicator trigger and counts up for SO many things that are not important or urgent that I am dulled to seeing there are pending notifications and feeling any sense of urgency to check them. But what that means is that people trying to…

                            • My team and I love the idea of Teams and would make more use of it if everyone got notifications from it.

                              I and other of my team have the Teams app on our phones as well as on our laptops. There's only one person that gets notifications on either. The rest of us normally don't get a notification on either device, even though the settings are all so we get notifications. We're planning on switching to Slack because of this.

                              • Allow notifications to be disabled for Thumbs-up reactions

                                It's annoying to have Teams flashing away telling you there's something new to look at when it's just someone clicking Thumbs-up on a comment. There should be an option to disable those notifications while leaving notifications for actual messages.

                                • If I turn off notifications for X, don't show a notification on the icon

                                  I got tired of thumb-up notifications so I turned them off (wgaf iykwim aityd). And while it's nice not to be blasted about the stupid things constantly, it's still shown as an unread activity on the Teams icon on the task bar.

                                  The point of turning off notifications is that I don't get distracted by the damned things. But with the light on the taskbar icon, I'm still being drawn to check if something important is happening (it's not, it's still a stupid dumb thumbs up).

                                    It would be nice if there was an option for "John Smith sent you a message" but the message is hidden and options like current normal notifications where it displays the actual message. It is important to be able to hide actual messages as sometimes for work I need to share screens or others may be looking at my screen.

                                    • Notifications are coming as email instead of messages in android

                                      I am not notified in Android about the messages in a favorited channel. Instead I get them as emails, which delay too much to come. The catch here is that I am using the company's office365, but the teams app is not installed in my pc. You might need to fix the channels behaviour.

                                        • Not receiving notifications for a year!

                                          I have not been getting notifications on my phone for about a year! After numerous reinstalls, setting changes and researching why, this is getting frustrating. I see majority having this issue and it is a big disappointment that you still have not sorted this issue. I cant believe i am getting such support from Microsoft. I have to keep entering the application to see my messages instead of getting notifications to see if i have a message or not. I will keep reporting and giving bad reviews for this app until it has been fixed.
