  1. Tag for Change of Status Alerts

    This is easy to manage in Skype as the option to un-tag a person is available in the pop up window. In Teams you have to go back to the person in Chat to turn off the notifications. Could these pop ups be developed to include the additional functionality?

  2. Admin control on sending notifications to the team owner

    I would like you to implement a feature for admins to control sending notifications to the team owner when sharing the document link with someone. This notification is for asking the owner to give an access to who are invited, but we need to block giving an access to people who don’t belong to the internal organization. I think if the admins could block the notification to be sent, we are no longer suffer from this problem any more.

  3. Custom Notification Sounds

    I know this has come up a lot but we would love to be able to customize the notification sounds in Teams. In a cubicle farm, it is sometimes hard to tell if the message was for a particular person if that person isn't right at their desk at the time.

  4. Channel notifications for new teams on by default

    Rather than missing notifications because notifications are set to off by default we'd like the to be opt out rather than opt in

  5. Allow a Sound Notification for Received Messages

    Currently there are only banner or email notifications. When doing work, it makes it hard to keep track of chat conversations unless you are able to see the banner. Adding a simple 'message received' sound notification (even if the old AOL received message sound) would increase productivity.

    There are times when notifications get in the way when you are attending a meeting.
    Other times aren’t an issue, but please allow users to restrict the appearance of notifications when they are in a meeting.

  8. Option to set a one-time status notification or perpetual

    When I set a status notification for a colleague, I usually just want to know the next time they come online, so I can contact them. Having the option to set just a one-time notification of the next time they come online would save the hassle of clicking through settings windows to turn it off again.

  9. Turn off notifications for a meeting

    Please add the ability to turn of chat notifications for any given meeting.

    Use case: I'm optional on a meeting. I accept it as tentative for visibility and to be able to review the conversation afterward. I would like to be able to turn off chat notifications for that meeting (and optionally choose a digest email later in the data).

    It would be nice to:
    * have the feature available on the meeting itself on the calendar,
    * have the feature available on the notification itself

    Mute options:
    a) turn off,
    b) mute until the meeting ends,
    c) mute for…

  10. Split Call Notification Global Options 3 ways: Call, Chat, Mention

    Please Split Call Notification Global Options 3 ways: Call, Chat, Mention. with all options each. Present config is not fun or productive. It is annoying, aggravating and disturbing of focus and productivity, personally and of co-workers. - Present status decrements the user experience of Teams App and Teams web. Tkx.

  11. "Untag" Button on status change notifications

    When tagging someone as "Notify when available" it would be nice to have an "untag" button on the notification that shows up.

    Currently, you have to go to the main Teams interface, find the person who's still tagged for status change and then select "turn off notifications" which is a bunch of extra clicks.

  12. Manage notifications for all channels in a Team

  13. Getting notification when a channel receives an email

    I consider it is useful to be able to receive notification when a channel within a team receives an email sent to the channel email address. The reason behind is that, I am addressing to a number of C-level guys and upper management, besides the tons of emails which they already receive, the notification from the special channel will not be missed.
    Like when a new post is made in the channel, a new notification is pushed.
    Thank you!

  14. 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.

  15. 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.

  16. Banner notification location

    I want to be able to choose the corner of the screen where I want banner notifications to be displayed. Currently the behavior between MacOS and Windows platforms are different and can not be changed. Please, be more loyal and let the user decide.
    Thanks.

  18. Have the Original Owner of a Team get the meeting notification as well as all other members when creating a meeting in a channel

    Currently the original Owner of a Team doesn't receive an email notification when a meeting is created in a Channel. You can remove and re-add the owner to fix it as a work around but it would be nice to not have to do that on every team that gets created.

  19. 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.

  20. 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
