  1. Show the reason why the live event cannot be organized

    If you would like to organize a live event in Microsoft Teams, you have to meet requirements; permission to organize a live event in Microsoft Stream and setting a meeting policy in Teams.
    When you don’t meet some requirements, you are not able to organize the live event.
    So, we would like you to implement a feature showing the reason why the live evet cannot be organized.
    If we could have the feature, we are easily able to check necessary settings in order to organize the live event successfully.

  2. IM pop up alerts

    I would like it to show a pop up when you get a new IM in the bottom right of the screen even if the app is minimized, just like outlook does with new emails. We are not allowed speakers in the office, so I only have earbuds which I only wear if I need to watch a video, so I can't hear the alert tones.

  3. Smart Notifications

    Stop sending notifications of activity in a chat that I am currently viewing!! I already know there is activity, I'm looking right at it!!

    Seriously though, if I am actively in a chat/thread, there is no need to make a notification. Surely there has to be a way to enable smart notifications. I only need to know what's happening in other channels/chats that I'm not currently viewing.

  4. better mobile and web notifications

    I do not hear any sound, when someone send me a message (in web app and mobile) I also do not see any icon change on the pinned tab(webapp). I like Slack notifications. I think that also PWA notifications with pop-ups would be nice :) but delayed mobile push notifications are quite annoying for me.

  5. When an email about activity on Teams is sent, include a specific description of what happened, like Jira does

    When I'm a watcher on a ticker in Jira and someone adds a new comment, I get an email telling me exactly what happened - what the comment was. I can then decide if I need to stop doing what I'm doing and switch my attention to Jira. However when I get an email from Teams its content is just "SOMETHING HAPPENED!" and it's not a value add. Often times people just post a "thumbs up" emoji or talk to each other about topics that don't immediately apply to me (but I'd still like to be informed).
    Please consider this…

  6. Request for the public-facing article for the difference between WAM and ADAL authentications

    I would like you to release the public-facing article regarding with WAM authentication and the difference comparison between WAM and ADAL.

    As we consider disabling the WAM authentication to use Teams, so we need to know the impact with disabling WAM.

  8. App-Benachrichtigung fehlerhaft

    Die Benachrichtigung der TEAMS-App ist fehlerhaft. Es wird dauerhaft eine "1" angezeigt, obwohl keine neuen Informationen vorliegen.

  9. Better Notifications

    The old Skype use to blink and alerted us better when someone needed something or trying to message us. It was SOOO much better that way!

  10. feedback

    In general I miss information about when comments from Microsoft is added to issues. It doesn't really help that an issue has 'WORKING ON IT" when there is no information about when this comment was made. In other words you haven't got a clue if the issue is worked on for several years. Nor is there any indication when a solution will be available. And, unfortunately, it seems that the Microsoft Teams Engineers isn't updating the given feedback very often (if at all).

  11. Notifications: Have an option to reduce the size to a one liner box versus a large box.

    The box is fixed in one place and its big... i would suggest a UX improvement - give an option... a one liner notification (i.e. smaller) and the option to make it transparent like in a previous version of skype. thanks

  12. Pop-up with warning when leaving a channel with an unfinished edit/msg

    Please provide the user with a pop-up with warning/question to commit when leaving a channel with a still unfinished edit or message. Maybe even show the same pop-up or auto focus to unfinished message when returning to this channel.

    Now it is possible to start editing msg, leave without committing or cancelling then and they stay open like forever, however your teammates won't see the edit.

  13. Point on something (e.g. files, chats, etc.)

    If you wamt to show a file or chat or anything in TEAMS, a feature that I can use to draw someone's attention in TEAMS would be great. The person should get a short message with a link. It should be like "pointing to something".

  14. Allow a user to choose if new notification types are enabled/disabled

    It's nice to see new features and that notifications are being improved, but again having to go into the settings dialogue to disable suggestions and trending topics is just extra work.

    I would prefer a user to be able to set in their settings if they want new notification types enabled/disabled by default. Resulting in the user to make the choice if they want new notifications enabled by default or not.

  15. notifications

    When a notification is received on a PC it needs to remain on screen until dealt with/read. Please sort this and this app will be ideal for what my business needs.

  16. Reminder/Snoozes for Saved Items

    When you saved an item be able to set day/week/month reminders and snooze abilities for follow up on saved items without having to create a planner under each team/channel you are under... from your profile instead or maybe even an overall planner from your profile that can have sections of teams and channels

  17. Better Message Notification

    We we're using Skype and when a message was sent, it would pop up on the screen. This doesn't do that and we can't tell when we have messages. It's annoying.

  18. Please add an "off work" status.

    Please add a "off work" status with its own color. Appear away can be used throughout the day and doesn't immediately convey that we are done working for the day.
