  1. 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.

  3. Email Notifications

    It would be great if the Team application would send an automatic email to members when any changes occurred to the site. Examples would be if a file was changed or added or if a conversation was posted.

  5. Option Notify Team members when a new channel is created

    We would like to notify the team when a new channel is created.

    We manage small projects and problem tickets using a Microsoft Team. As the number of channels in our team increase it can be easy to miss when a new project or problem channel is created.

    Team member should have the option to enable a notification when a Channel is created. This notification could be implemented as a pop up notification, email, and/or as a card with a button in the General Channel's conversation.

  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.

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. saved

    I use the Save mention feature a lot for later correspondence. Save button is very easy to use on the message but to find the saved message is very hard because it is hidden in the menu. Please place the saved list menu on the navigation bar.

  12. 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.

  13. 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.

  14. Use Same Notification Sound in iOS App as Desktop App

    You are relying on the default push notification sound on iOS. It would be helpful to have a custom notification sound for Teams notifications so that I know which app is pinging me without looking at my phone. This sort of thing is trivial to implement for an iOS engineer (I know because I've done it before).

    Hopefully you can use the same sound between the desktop and the mobile apps. Thanks!

  15. Working Hour Notifications

    A way to set your 'working hours' in your profile settings to only receive notifications within that time-frame. This way, we can leave work and switch off without continuing to get notifications on our phones.

  16. Microsoft Stream videos hyperlink

    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.

  17. 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.

  18. 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.

  19. 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.

  20. Control notification when Add members

    Team's administrators sometime would like to avoid the automatic built-in email welcome message sent to a new member when he/she's being added to a Team but sent a custom message in a later time explaining the new members the whole contact of the new team they've been invited to. Option to uncheck email notification (similar to what SharePoint provides is very needed to address this scenario.
    In addition, the timing of sending this email welcome message should be changed to after all members at this cycle are being added so admin can regret and remove from the list potential members…
