    • Add notification/alert like skype

      There should be a notification/alert pop up when there is a message, someone goes offline or comes online...

      • Teacher is notified when students submit assignments

        Teachers should be able to turn on notifications for when students submit assignments, especially if they are late. Currently, teachers are not notified when students submit anything and if it's late, the teacher will have to open past assignments to see if anything has been submitted.

        • Ability to subscribe to desktop notifications while opting out of mobile notifications for the same channel.

          While working on my computer, I like to see my desktop notifications for my channels that I'm following. However, I don't like to get all of the notifications on my mobile when I'm not working. It would be great to have an option for "desktop and mobile" and another option for "desktop only" or something along those lines.

          • Mark message as read directly from notifications.

            We send/receive a lot of short messages that can be read in their entirety from their notifications. Since there's no way to mark a message as read directly from the notification, we basically have to dismiss the message "twice": clear the notification itself and then click into the desktop app to clear the red unread badges. It would be great time/click saver if there were a way to mark a message as being read directly from the notification itself.

            • 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?

              • Datadog

                Integration with Datadog (or any other third party monitoring/alerting system) is horrible in terms of UI/UX.

                The attached images used for comparison show the stark difference.

                This needs to change for better.

                Generic issues which when addressed would cover a whole range of such integrations would be

                1. Rendering of inline images
                2. Rendering of inline html

                Am sure devteams on MS Teams are already working on it, but if not, this seems important enough to be taken up if users need to switch from comparable competitors.

                Thanks!

                • Doesn't get sync automatically on mobile

                  After chatting on desktop, it doesn't get sync automatically on mobile till the time you open the app on mobile and wait for the sync, it should be realtime.

                  • Push Notifications for Microsoft Teams

                    Instead of being sent direct emails for changes, comments, uploads etc. in teams. It would be more useful to have push notifications so we can be immediately notified. This would spend up and improve the functionality of Teams as we wouldn't have to continually check our Outlook mailbox.

                    • Notification Pop Up

                      It would be great if the user can decide where on the screen a notification pop up is shown. It is very often hiding buttons to the bottom right which is annoying.

                      • Filter for @Me

                        It would be great to have a filter in teams for @me, so the user can distinguish between general @-notifcations and personal notifications.

                          • Notifications should be customizable to make dock icon bounce repeatedly

                            New incoming messages are very easily missed due to lack of visual and repetitive notification. The teams icon in the doc should bounce repeatedly AND show the red notification bubble whenever new messages come in. This should happen regardless of whether the Teams window is active/selected for those with multiple monitors to still have that visual prompt. Users should be able to select what criteria they want to trigger this notification - i.e. Incoming messages for all groups/channels, Messages where I am mentioned, Direct messages to me, Incoming messages for channels I follow... etc. Look at what options Slack allows…

                            • 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.

                              • Silence push notifications to mobile device when outlook set to out of office.

                                This request is to provide a feature where the teams app installed on a mobile device (iPhone, Android, Windows, etc) to not receive notifications when the person's outlook calendar says OOO for the day or specific time period. This is a grey area since the whole idea is to be informed and "always on" but when on vacation wouldn't want to be disturbed with them and consume unneeded battery life or privacy.

                                  Now Teams support Stream as a tab., thanks.
                                  Next step is to be able to create a hyperlink for each added video in Teams to be able to create a conversation/notification about each newly added video.

                                  • Mute channel timer

                                    Great work on the new mute channel/chat feature. However, I think this would be vastly improved by adding a timer funtion (like facebook messenger). This would allow you to permanently mute a channel/chat or mute it for a set period (30 mins, 1 hour, 4 hours, 1day, 1 week for example).
                                    This means that when you are concentrating on work and don't want notifications popping up every second for stuff that is currently irrelevant, but don't want to miss future team chats it gives that ability. I hope that explanation makes some sense.

                                    • Better notifications!!!

                                      If you are part of a group, you should automatically get notifications. I should not have to "follow" the channel. In general, the notifications only show up part of the time, go away quickly, and are not eye catching. We are trying to make this our "go-to" platform for the office but notifications have to be improved!

                                      • Notifications on the Taskbar icon

                                        Taskbar icon could flash when a new message is posted / Number of unread messages could show on the taskbar icon, as skype does. Emails are not being received when messages are posted either

                                        • Teams Notification

                                          If the "Teams" tab in Microsoft teams had an option to light up / blink when there are messages waiting in that tab that would be great.
