  1. Block notifications on mobile when status is Do Not Disturb

    When status is DND, notifications still come through on mobile (iOS version 1.077.2017072604). Very disturbing when on a phone call.

    • Teams to display ammount of Teams and Chat post in general not individual comments in channels.

      When you get 20/30 notifications in on team it starts to clog up your activity bar.

      Could this be updated so that you see how many teams have activity in them and when you click on the team you can see more detail about how many posts are in each channel.

      An example would be that on the task bar I see 3 notifications, this would mean that I have 3 teams/chats I need to read. When I open teams one of those could then indicate once I've clicked on a team that there is multiple notifications in separate channels.

      • Taskbar Icon with Notification

        On the far bottom right small icons, can we get a little red flag or something when there are unread messages. Like in Slack.

        • "Secondary ringer & Notifications" on various Audio devices.

          Call signals & also notifications should optionally be possible on all audio devices (Skype only allows an additional "Secondary ringer" when someone calls you but notifications only comes to your primary audio device. Would be nice to configure combinations of ringers & notifications on different audio devices that are available like for myself sitting on speakers and headset.

            • Disable or mute notifications when not attending a meeting

              Ability to disable or mute notifications for a meeting you are not actively attending.
              Consider the scenario of being double booked or optional for a meeting and you don't join. There is no need for the Chat/IM popups and dings to occur, instead I should look at my activity feed and can then choose if I need to review or not.

                • notifications

                  I am unable to get any pop-up notifications on my phone from the Teams app. I have checked the following settings: On the app:
                  Menu/Settings/Notifications:

                  Send Notifications - "Always, even if active on desktop"

                  Push Notifications - All selected

                  Sound - set on with vibrate

                  On the phone:

                  Settings/Notifications:

                  Teams set to notify

                  Advanced:

                  Allow Notifications selected

                  • Add Status Color to MS Outlook

                    In outlook you should see the status of the person you're emailing. Right now that's only available if I have skype running. When I have teams on I dont see the red, yellow, green, (or no) status of the person I'm emailing.

                      • Add team channel notifications, push to mobile device, show number of unread messages in each Chat and Teams and channel

                        Show toast when message is posted to Team channel that is followed.
                        Show the number of unread messages in the Icon, on the tabs and on the channel. (mobile and desktop)
                        Push the notification to mobile devices.

                        We shouldn't have to go look at the channel to see if its bolded. Users want to glance at the icon, if a number exists then they know there are unread messages. They don't want to have to hunt for the unread messages.

                        Almost every other team app and social app does this.

                              Chat Notifcations
                              Currently if you have a chat with multiple members you get a notification for every single message even if they are in rapid succession. Can you allow for notifications based on keywords or only if a message hasn't been sent after a certain time period?

                              As it is you can only fully turn off notifications or fully turn them on and in chats with active discussion you get blasted with notifications.

                              • Better notifications

                                I always miss new chats. Any way to make notifications more obvious? Previously I used Slack and the icon in the dock (I'm on Mac) would hop up and down and show the number of new messages. If I'm not actively looking at Teams, I don't know if there's a new message.
