  1. Add a "Mark as Read" button to the pop up Banner

    In the current Pop-up Banner, add a button to mark it as read, like in Outlook. This is especially useful for short notes, like OK or Thanks, or for the like you get on a chat. I just don't think I need to go into the app to clear my notifications.

  2. Teams in the background

    When teams runs in the background, you must manually check for any new chat messages. This is not good for an instant chat app when you need a quick answer; it is no better than sending an email. The banner disappears quickly and unlike Skype it does not open the chat to the desktop and make the taskbar blink when a message comes thru. Could Teams have this function to grab your attention?

  3. Setting to receive email notifications even when active

    By adding a setting to receive email notifications even when active, I think that the range of information confirmation of users will expand

  4. Instant Message - Notifications

    The IM feature needs to have more control over the sound of the alerts (MUST BE LOUDER) and, when a message is sent, it should stay on the screen until the receiver opens the message. (or at least have an option to allow this to happen). IM's get sent and unless you are staring at your screen, the message is often missed for a very long time.

  5. Notification tone

    Better if we could have a notification tone enabled. We can see the ms teams app blinking but no audio option available.

  6. Allow admins/Owners to disable notifications for Members

    When creating a new MS Team for incoming new Students, we would like the ability to turn off email notifications so that they are not bombarded by emails upon joining and accessing their mailbox for the 1st time, as this may mean that important emails are missed

  7. Hiding administrator actions

    When an administrator deletes a person from a Team, the action should not be visible for all to see. It does not add any value, and In the case of a death, it is upsetting.

  8. Dismiss Notification with Swipe gesture

    Allow Dismissal of Notification box on MAC using swipe gesture when hovered over the notification which is much faster and user friendly aligning with MAC design and usability

  10. Notify on Team Chat Activity

    Currently when you are in the Teams section and get a PM, your chat icon has a red mark on it indicating an Unread PM.

    This should also happen on the teams icon when under Chat icon.

  11. person who creates a new team in Microsoft Teams has the ability to set up notification settings for the members of the team

    From what one of my colleagues has read online, it seems that Microsoft itself has determined what default notification settings exist. I realize that each user can edit their own notification settings. However, the question was asked if the default notification settings can just be set up for everyone by the creator of the team rather than Microsoft itself.

  12. Popup notification shows up on active chat

    At the moment there is still popup showing when you have the chat open. it only happens when working on multiple displays, when you have set Teams on the other screen and have your chat open with your colleague and then work on the other screen. You get the popup notification and it can be very annoying. I would like to prefer same as SfB that teams blinks on the notification bar.

  14. Show accurate unread numbers on Activity in Teams

    Notification numbers shown on Activity would be cleared once you click it even if there are unread feeds remained.

    I would like to view actual unread numbers of notifications in the Activity feed in Teams, if some unread items are remained.
    It would be great that you could improve this behavior to show the actual number on Activity.

  15. Progress bar for uploading recording to Streams

    It is difficult to tell when an upload of a meeting recording to Streams will finish. A progress bar would be great.

  18. Stop resending a notification to the user after editing @mentions message

    When I edit the existing @mentions message, another notification will be sent to the user again. It would be great to have a feature to stop resending the notification sent to the same user.

  19. Give ability for users to have a daily digest emailed to them of files uploaded into Teams and a preview of conversations, just like Yammer

    Give ability for users to have a daily or weekly digest emailed to them of files uploaded into Teams and a preview of conversations, just like Yammer allows users to do so. Other systems I use do this and then I know what I can go look for.

  20. Teams UAC prompt without Office Click To Run

    When launching Teams on a machine without Office Click to Run installed, you are prompted for admin credentials. Causes issues in environments that were deployed with the standalone machine installer, or the user installer.
