  1. Mark Unread battle I have with the Activity feed

    When I click on the Activity feed the top item instantly marks read
    - but I may not want that to happen, as I may be going into the Activity feed to look for something else
    - I'm constantly doing marking it unread like I'm having a battle with the software which keeps marking it read...arrrrgh

    Another thing - Just say I mark a post unread. Then later on I'm scrolling through a channel (and the post I earlier marked as unread so happens to live in this channel), and I scroll by it as I look for something else.…

  3. Get a notification when an Assignment is due

    It would be helpful for pupils and teachers if a notification was sent to remind us an Assignment was due.
    Being able to set how far in advance of the due date the notification is sent would be perfect.
    At the minyte, I am commenting in the conversation the night before an Assignment is due. This is time consuming.

  4. Wish I had one ... only comments

    I love Planner but the boss just had us stop using the channel email link. He says “... please refrain from posting emails to any of the teams pages. If you want to share information, please share in a post format only. This is becoming redundant and defeating the whole purpose of using team conversations instead of emails. Thank you and I appreciate your understanding.  “
    Comments in Conversation, comments to a Planner task,... all of it ends up in Outlook...as another Inbox to check. Then there’s the Activity feed!!!
    Maybe it’s the Teams desktop app I don’t like. I…

  5. output a list of people who "Like" to chat

    I want to output a list of people who have responded to chat.
    If I get a lot of "Like" action from team member to my post, it's difficult to grasp them now.

  6. Better notification system

    It needs to give more efficient notifications. Sometimes it takes me days before knowing I got a text I team. It needs actual push notifications and not just email notifications

  8. There is a notification bug where you keep giving me a notification for a “high performing post” in channels I’m not following (all channels

    There is a notification bug where you keep giving me a notification for a “high performing post” in channels I’m not following (and channels I am following, but I expect this - I do not expect to get ANY notifications for channels I am not following). There is no option to turn this annoying feature off. Screenshot attached of the kind of notification I’m talking about. Fix this ASAP.

  9. Option to explicitly mark activity feed items as read (like Outlook) rather than auto

    I would prefer to manually manage the read/unread status of something, the same way I can via Outlook's reading pane options. Current Teams behavior is equivalent to "mark items as read when viewed in the reading pane". I want to disable that and manually mark either a single item as read, multiple selected items, or all.

  11. Behavior on alert policies

    *English follows Japanese
    ■Title(件名):
    アラートポリシーの動作について

    Behavior on alert policies
    ***************
    ■Description(内容):
    アラートポリシーにて、OneDrive for Business のファイルを共有をした際にアラートで通知されるような設定をした際、Teams のチャットでファイルを添付した際にも通知が送信されるため、Teams での共有時には通知がされないよう※つで設定できる機能の拡充を希望します。

    If you set an alert in alert policy to notify when sharing files in OneDrive for Business, the notification will be sent when attaching files to Teams’ chat, too.
    We hope to have a setting to not send notifications when users attached a file to Teams chat in the scenario mentioned above.

  12. 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?

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

    I want different notification sounds for different channels allowing me to ignore what I can ignore and really pay attention to what’s important.

  16. 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.

  17. 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.

  18. 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.
