  3. notifications

    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.

  4. Allow us to turn of flashing taskbar notifications

    Flashing taskbar notifications are a bit annoying, and it would be nice to have the option to turn off that flashing (while keeping popup notifications enabled).

  5. 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.

  6. notifications

    On MacOS, please consider the following, or at least make them options:

    1. Notifications should use the standard Mac notifications instead of custom ones.

    2. Notifications cause dock icon to bounce continuously until addressed.

    3. Notification appear regardless of which virtual desktop is visible.

    4. Notifications remain visible until addressed.

    Any or all of the above would improve notifications immensely. I'm currently missing messages because the notifications are not seen....forcing me to continually monitor the application manually.

  9. Add message to "you got a new team"-email

    When I add new members to a team I would like to add a message to the "you got a new team"-email. Just like that I can add a message when I share a file from OneDrive or SharePoint.

  10. Banner notification on second monitor

    I, and many of my colleagues, do many presentations using screen sharing to potential customers. I share my primary monitor to the customer, but the second monitor is offstage. It would be most helpful to have a setting of where the banner notifications appear (on which screen/monitor). I like getting the notifications, but I need them to show up "offstage" instead of on my primary monitor.

  11. Autofollow the channels to get notifications

    It's better every team member to follow the channel automatically (as a default) and if he (she) decides not to receive notifications can unfollow

  12. 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.

  13. sorry, we ran into a problem

    Where do these "Sorry" error message go after they pop up and disappear?
    There does not appear to be any way to "open" the message. Clicking on it does nothing.
    Is there somewhere we can go to find out what the issue was?

  14. Mark all Channels as Read

    It would be great if we can please have the ability to mark all Channels in a Team as read.

    At present, if you go to a Team, and you have 30, 40 or more than 50 channels, you will see that all the channels are bolded. This indicates you have not read the content.

    So at the Team level, and even the Channel level, it would be great if you can right-click, and select “Mark all as Read”

    This would be especially helpful when you are added to a Team that has many Channels. When I am added to…

  15. Chat notifications in Chat, not Activity

    When someone likes a message on Chat, the notification appears on Activity, so you have to click to a different screen to see it. Would like notifications about any activity in Chat show up in Chat

  16. Archive Notifications

    It is difficult to keep track of what Notifications have been read or responded to. I propose the addition of an archive or hide option to remove Notifications from the list.

  17. Can we get an option to change the ringtone

    Since everyone use the same ringtone, you sometimes do not know that your phone is the one ringing

  18. team notifications

    there are no obvious notifications in 'teams' .. you have to click in to 'teams' when you remember to do so, and then you can see the teams you are a part of.. if there is new conversation, it will be bolded... but again, you have to remember to check into teams. On 'Chat' it shows a notification so I am able to remember to check that - but am always behind in my team updates.

    There needs to be some unity between the chats so I can remember or a better notification.

  20. Enable notifications for Incoming Webhook messages

    Whether I follow a channel explicitly or not, no banner notifications or message count indicators show for messages from Incoming Webhooks.

    There is a StackOverflow question for this as well: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/43764022/how-do-you-get-notifications-from-a-webhook-connector-posting

    Thank you!
