  1. 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?

  2. Use topic feeds to monitor team/channel activity (ie ego filter)

    In prior platforms (such as Group Chat, Lync) you could fine-tune your room monitoring by setting up topic feeds, or filters, that notify you of chat room messages that contain specific words and phrases you’re interested in. Our various business units have created several processes around this feature.

    These helped us focus on areas that involve or interest certain groups without having to inspect every new message that gets posted to the rooms you’re following. Ideally this would also highlight the keyword(s) that were identified by the filter.

  3. I am getting "You've got new notifications in Microsoft Teams" emails about messages I've seen and responded to hours ago

    Seems like this just started today. I am getting "You've got new notifications in Microsoft Teams" emails about messages I've seen and responded to hours ago, so as today has gone on I am continually getting these emails. It seems like Teams server doesn't realize I'm logged in and using Teams (Win 10 desktop) client and have viewed all messages I've received.

  4. Play/Display notification when someone enters a meeting

    When someone enters a meeting, it would be nice to either have a pop-up or sound notification that someone has joined the meeting. You should be able to toggle this on/off so that large meetings can go undisturbed if needed.

  6. Caller notification on Windows 10 lock screen

    This is similar to other posts about notifications, but I didn't see this specific scenario. We have people who are working in their office either alone or with other people, but aren't using their computer. The computer is locked. When a call comes in from Teams, they want to see who is calling displayed on the lock screen to determine if they need to answer.

  8. Provide option to suppress "Joined the Team" and "Left the Team" messages in Org-Wide team

    Please provide an option for administrators to suppress the "Joined the Team" and "Left the Team" messages that are automatically added into the conversations stream. This would be a nice feature in any Team, but is really important for the Org-Wide team.

    Because of the nature of our business model, we have a high turnover / churn of employees -- so every day there are multiple messages about who joined the team and who left the team. This noise causes the actual content in the General channel of our org-wide team to be pushed off the page. We try to…

  10. Enable @Mentions on documents within the TEAMS app and notifications sent to email and activity feeds

    It would be great to have the ability to @mention users on documents from within the TEAMS app and have notifications sent to both their activity feeds and an email sent in notification. Currently, we're only able to use @mentions when opened in the online or local versions of an Office documents as it does not work within TEAMS. The attached document shows the green arrow from an online comments and the second arrow (yellow) when made in TEAMS does not work. Thanks

  11. clear notifications

    It would be great to have the option to clear notifications through a right-click menu on: a) the chat, teams, and activity areas, and b) on the task bar icon itself.

  14. pop-up chat

    When you open an individual chat into a pop-up chat window, it would be nice to have the pop-up chat window have it's own badge indicating there are new messages related to the chat. Currently, if the notifications are missed, the entire Teams app blinks orange and not the individual pop-up chat window. A differentiating indicator would be helpful.

  16. 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.

  17. Notifications when files are updated in a Team

    Team or General channel notifications should be sent when files are updated in a Team. Unless I check every so often, I don't know when files are updated, as the person updating the files doesn't post a comment to the General channel (which I'm following) and updating a file doesn't auto-post a comment to the General channel to trigger watches on the channel.

    The same is true for new files, but there is also an idea already open for new files: https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public/suggestions/18719107-notifications-should-be-sent-when-files-are-added

  18. Raise hand: make visible in presentation mode.

    hello!

    I am having a hard time seeing if anyone raised their hand in the meeting where I am presenting/sharing the screen.

    If there would be a visual indication on the shared screen or in the small call window to indicate that somebody is trying to make a comment or ask a question by raising their hand it would make things more helpful.

    Thanks in advance!

  20. @mentions from word, excel, powerpoint and onenote in Teams

    Today when you @mention someone in word, excel and powerpoint an email notification is being generated. I can understand in a way it is designed that way but at the same time that goes against how you (MS) is marketing Teams to be the collaboration platform and not Outlook.
    I would much rather have the notifications show up in Teams when being @mentioned from a document instead of having an email. Then you can start working right away and continue the comments within Teams. There should be, at least, an option or switch where you can choose to have the…
