  1. Add user settings to teams.. Can't find how to make Teams stop flashing at me.

    I want to control of how Teams tries to notify me of activity... At the moment flashing is too intrusive. I just want to turn it off as it is just one more needy program seeking attention.

  2. Make it more apparent that you have received an IM.

    The new message alert is very subtle. It does not command attention. I have had message go unanswered.

  3. Unify the notification style with other applications.

    At least please let me remove them with right flick.

  5. Notifications needs a lot of Love

    Teams notifications of new chat messages is unpredictable. We just tested it and one message only notified via watch (not phone, tablet or computer). The next message from the same user to the same user notified via tablet and phone, but not computer or watch.

    In addition, being able to customize the notifications on each device would be greatly appreciated. Being able to choose audible only/visual only/flash only or any combination of the three types of notification for each device would be extremely helpful.

    And lastly, having further control over mute, such as muting individuals (implemented)/app-wide muting everyone with a…

  6. Notification preference sets

    I need a way to configure all of my notification settings together depending on what kind of work I'm, and then choose those groupings at different times.

    For example, maybe there's a group I name "keep me informed" where I have many notifications turned on and I receive them frequently. Likewise, I use a "heads down" set where I have next to nothing enabled.

    The option to have Do Not Disturb except for a few folks is a step in the right direction, as is the status message that lasts for a certain duration of time. But right now I'm…

  8. When someone has chat in Teams, we dont get notified unless that person has tagged me or the Teams Name. Could you please fix this? Thanks

    We dont get notifications when someone has chat me in Teams unless they tagged my name or tagged the group name. It would be best if you will fix this type of issue so we can easily notify in a group chat when someone has sent messages. Thank you

  9. Add "reply" and "turn off notifications" buttons on notification available toast

    When tagging contacts and the notification toast pops that one of your contacts are available, it would be nice to extend the time a little and allow you to either "Reply" or "Turn Off Notifications" right there on the toast so that you don't have to switch to the client.

  11. Recalling from activity list should be simpler

    Recalling from activity list should be simpler. When missing a call, it must be simpler to call back.

  13. Add custom entries to the Activity Feed

    Make it possible to add custom entries to the Feed.

    "You received a new email from your boss"

    "Your build is ready"

    "A visitor awaits you at the reception"

    I just saw an idea to integrate Outlook into the Teams client. No. NOOO! However I understand where the poor souls voting for that idea are coming from - Teams as the One Hub For Everything. That does not mean we should integrate everything into Teams.

    What if you could have entries for new emails in Outlook appear in the Feed? You click on it, it opens the email in Outlook.…

  16. Create the ability to attach a sticky note to a document in Files or a Document Library

    We are standardizing on teams as a UI for business. This means that we have items in the Document Library or the Files area that are often Works in Progress. I would like to see the ability to attach a note, or tag or some other entity visible at the folder level that could display a quick note on mouse over. For example, we might have an existing expense policy that someone could mouse over and have a popup indicate that this is in production and a second one with a different title that would reveal a popup indicating WIP…

  17. Microsoft Teams - Filter based notificatons

    Microsoft Teams suggested feature:

    In Jabber, you had the ability to setup filters. For example, I could set a filter for my name "Clint" so that when it is used in a chat, it popped up a dedicated, separate floating notification window that did not disappear & required you to act upon it to close it. I find this was much more valuable than just the (1) next to Activity in Teams. Since all messages come through as just banners which disappear after a few seconds, its easy to miss chats directed to you or with your name used.

    Jabber…

  20. iOS push notifications with guest

    iOS push notifications as a guest.

    When the Teams iOS app is closed and or I have not switched organisations within the app to the specific guest account, I need notifications from chat, Team chat, calls and video to create a notification bubble over the app icon on the home screen. When the iOS device is locked, I need the notifications for these activities to pop up as there would for activity on our own tenant.
