  3. Notifications for Team Channels

    It would be nice to receive notifications when things are posted in the file Tab or any of the added tabs at the top of the team channel. Right now it just turns bold.

  7. Ability to disable the Activity tab

    Notification badges appear on the Activity tab but not on the tab where they actually happen. So I click into the Activity tab to see that John posted in our Test Team but then I have to navigate to the Teams tab to view the full Team.

  8. Desktop Notifications lag

    On opening the app everyday, the first notification/ping I receive is succeeded by the last notification of the previous day. This would happen on the same day too if the first conversation happened in the morning and the second ping was received after 3hours.

  10. Turn off meeting pop-ups when I'm not using 'teams', but doing other work.

    Turn off Teams meeting/chat pop-ups when I'm not using Teams, but am doing other work. Teams is not even open!

  11. Adding option to change the notification sounds of different chat groups

    It would be helpful to have the option to change the notification sounds of my different chat groups so I can recognize which group is contacting me even if I'm not at my computer.

  12. name of muter

    Please ensure to reflect the name of who is muting whom. Cause many are misusing this feature during meeting. while someone is presenting in a big team of 150 people , someone is muting intentionally which is disrupting the whole presentation . so please add feature at least who is unmuting?? so that no one takes that risk to play a foul.

  13. Keep Activity Feed & Chat messages as "Unread" until I actually click on them, not just when I hover or first click on that icon.

    Keep Activity Feed & Chat messages as "Unread" until I actually click on them, not just when I hover or first click on that icon.

    Because I provide support to my company on some of the Teams we have set up, it is important that my messages stay unread until I actually click on them, and stay unread if I change the status back to "Mark as unread". Teams has an annoying way of making your messages read just by clicking on Activity or Chat, and if you have one of these open the "feed" will also go to unread…

  15. BRB and other status commands optional clarification

    Right now using buttons or commands like /brb, /away, /dnd, /busy allows team members to see what you're doing and your level of availability.

    However it doesn't offer any fine-grained explanation that you would expect in person and is needed even more in faceless virtual office. If someone came up to my desk and I held up a hand to them and just said "busy!" and turned away that would be considered extremely rude and you would never do that. Yet that is what Teams offers.

    Teams should follow the Skype status function where free-form optional text offers customisable detail…

  17. Notificación cuando has empezado una reunión pero estás trabajando en otras cosas con Teams minimizado y se incorpora la otra persona.

    Si has iniciado una reunión, no puedes esperar trabajando en otros temas porque no te avisa cuando se incorpora la otra persona. Tienes que esperar con Teams abierto perdiendo el tiempo.

  18. Implemented the ability to email all instant message logs for chats, channels and meetings.

    *English follows Japanese
    ■Title(件名):
    チャット、チャネル、会議におけるすべてのインスタントメッセージログを電子メールで通知する機能の実装。

    Implemented the ability to email all instant message logs for chats, channels and meetings.


    ■Description(内容):
    Lync や Skype for business では Exchange Online メールボックスの会話の履歴フォルダにインスタントメッセージを格納する機能が存在していた。
    しかし、Microsoft Teams にはこの機能がない。

    この差を埋めてほしい。

    この機能が実装されることによって、ユーザーリクエストによる会話ログ抜出のために割り咲かれていた管理者の時間を他の仕事に使うことができるようになり、非常に助かります。
    それだけでなく、ユーザーも見落としていたメッセージに気が付くことができるようになるため、会話による認識の齟齬を減らすことができます。
    是非実装をご検討ください。

    Lync and Skype for business had the ability to store instant messages in the conversation history folder of an Exchange Online mailbox.
    But Microsoft Teams doesn't have this feature.

    I want you to fill this gap.

    By implementing this function, it will be possible to save the administrator's time that has been spared for extracting the conversation log by user request, and it will…

  19. Show all Assignments in one tab

    When I first started using teams, I was in something like 3 groups or so and I could see all my Assignments at the "Assignments" Tab, but because of Corona, I am currently in 15 groups and when I click on that Tab, I have to click on every single Group itself and that is really annoying.

    That is why I would really like to see a tab, where all the assignemts are shown at once!

  20. Option to allow a hidden chat to reappear upon a reply or new activity.

    I often chat with upwards of 40 seperate individuals per day and the hide function is great for removing clutter but thats all I personally use it for.

    The request is to add an option in notification settings to allow hidden chats to automatically unhide and appear. I think a checkbox would be perfect as I know users that use it as others do to fully hide however I also know many users that would love to use it to declutter.

    I just cant risk not noticing replies as occasionally the person on the other end takes a day or…
