  1. Allow for sound notification option/customization

    When Banners for Microsoft Teams is turned off, a sound notification is no longer present, as it when a new message was received in Chat when Banners was turned on. The Banner itself is too invasive for all the chat messages that I receive, since it blocks me from seeing/using my screen. In fact the blinky to taskbar and sound would be fine, but not a pop up in the notifications area. Sound notification options would still be nice to have irregardless, in Chats and individual Channels. The customization options that were once available in the product were proven to…

  2. clear notifications

    It would be great to have the option to clear notifications through a right-click menu on: a) the chat, teams, and activity areas, and b) on the task bar icon itself.

  3. @mentions from word, excel, powerpoint and onenote in Teams

    Today when you @mention someone in word, excel and powerpoint an email notification is being generated. I can understand in a way it is designed that way but at the same time that goes against how you (MS) is marketing Teams to be the collaboration platform and not Outlook.
    I would much rather have the notifications show up in Teams when being @mentioned from a document instead of having an email. Then you can start working right away and continue the comments within Teams. There should be, at least, an option or switch where you can choose to have the…

  4. Notifications in Activity Feed for Planner Tasks

    Notifications should be created in the Activity Feed for Planner Tasks, as soon as
    1) Comments get created on Tasks that I'm assigned to
    2) a Planner Task gets completed

  5. Make notifications come in batches so I don't get a new notification ever few seconds when a live chat is happening

    Make an option for notifications to come in batches so I don't get a new notification ever few seconds when a live chat is happening. For instance, have all notifications consolidate into one pop up every 5 minutes.

    It's annoying to see constant notifications and I'm trying to get something else done. I don't want to have to change the setting to not display notifications because I'll likely forget to switch it back and could miss something important.

  6. 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.

  7. (Un)subscribe button for threads

    Add an unsubscribe button for threads you would no longer like notifications for, and a subscribe button so you get notified on a thread without having to reply to it.

  8. Notification on Team icon

    I would suggest, if possible, to add notifications on the Team icon on the task bar so we know if there's someone message me. Sometimes, I message my team but they haven't response because there's no notification and even to me, I didn't notice someone message me already. Thanks

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  11. Implement a Meet Now notification

    It would be very convenient if attendees can see a Meet Now notification in the task bar when they are invited in the Meet Now meeting. Currently, we have to request them to join the meeting before starting, and it’s inconvenient.

  12. Differentiate Notification Icons for @Mentions - Personal, Group, Team. Channel

    @Mentions are very powerful, but end users need a way to quickly scan all of their teams and channels and quickly prioritize tasks/responses. Currently, you see the same designation (a red @ sign) on a channel even though the mention could be just you, an entire Office group, the entire channel, or even the entire team. Each of those should be a different color and end users should be able to change notification (email, banner, etc.) options based on those 4 categories. A personal @mention is likely more pressing and important than an @mention to an entire channel or team.

  13. Notification setting per channel

    It would be nice if I could disable @all notifications for specific channels without leaving the channel.

    There are some channels I don't need to pay attention to for a period of time, but will need again at some point in the future. Currently I need to leave those channels then be invited back to them later, or disable ALL channel notifications.

  17. Allow Users to Mark Messages as Read

    Allow messages to be marked as Read from Android notification center.

    This should also remove the number badge of the unread message from the Teams app.

  18. sound notification

    There is no sound notification when a message is sent inside a Team, like there is when you message a Group from Chat. The Banner and small red notification on the TaskBar is not enough to alert Team members they have a message.

  20. Administrative feature to manage user’s email notification setting for Microsoft Teams

    It would be great if an admin can use PowerShell or other method in admin center to manage users in the tenant level at a time in Microsoft Teams so that they could receive email notifications. Currently, each user needs to do the notification setting through their client.
