  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. Stop the blinking in the taskbar when a message is received

    A single notification screen on the desktop is great, and the option to email me of a missed teams chat* is helpful. Please disable the blinking of the icon in the toolbar on the windows desktop each time a message is received. If I do not want to view the message, the icon in the task bar blinks orange until I select it, and then click on Teams. If I do not want to view a message in the middle of a task, I should not have to sit through blinking alerts. Maybe have the icon/minimized window blink twice.

    *Come…

  6. Mute channel timer

    Great work on the new mute channel/chat feature. However, I think this would be vastly improved by adding a timer funtion (like facebook messenger). This would allow you to permanently mute a channel/chat or mute it for a set period (30 mins, 1 hour, 4 hours, 1day, 1 week for example).
    This means that when you are concentrating on work and don't want notifications popping up every second for stuff that is currently irrelevant, but don't want to miss future team chats it gives that ability. I hope that explanation makes some sense.

  7. Mail notification uses the first name of displayname (which might be the last name)

    I would consider this more as a bug.
    Problem:
    In all email notifications it looks like it uses the first part of the displayname property (unitl the first space).

    Assumption:
    AD Property Displayname uses Lastname Firstname
    Based on Screenshot this is HOBMAIER Dennis and Maierhofer Andreas.

    Error:
    The Result will be:
    Hello LASTNAME

    LASTNAME (of other participant) sent a chat message.
    See the attached screenshot.

    Expectation:
    Change this to use AD first name attribute.

  8. 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.

  9. Use topic feeds to monitor team/channel activity (ie ego filter)

    In prior platforms (such as Group Chat, Lync) you could fine-tune your room monitoring by setting up topic feeds, or filters, that notify you of chat room messages that contain specific words and phrases you’re interested in. Our various business units have created several processes around this feature.

    These helped us focus on areas that involve or interest certain groups without having to inspect every new message that gets posted to the rooms you’re following. Ideally this would also highlight the keyword(s) that were identified by the filter.

  10. 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.

  11. notification sounds

    Right now, the sound notifications make is not very attention-grabbing, and it's the only option. It would be great if you could choose different sounds for different notifications, as you can in Outlook and other Microsoft programs.

  12. Reply to missed message email

    The current missed message notification is from [user] in Teams <noreply@email.teams.microsoft.com>, it would be nice if the ReplyTo address for the notifications was the email address of the user who sent the missed message (similar to the existing functionality in Skype for Business).

  13. notification

    Facebook has a concept of "Turn of notification for this post" on per conversation basis on a post where someone is tagged or added a comment. So people don't get spammed if they choose not to be notified on a certain conversation.

    Currently in Microsoft Teams the Notification settings only allows user to turn it off for all conversations and not on per conversation basis.

  14. Notifications should be customizable to make dock icon bounce repeatedly

    New incoming messages are very easily missed due to lack of visual and repetitive notification. The teams icon in the doc should bounce repeatedly AND show the red notification bubble whenever new messages come in. This should happen regardless of whether the Teams window is active/selected for those with multiple monitors to still have that visual prompt. Users should be able to select what criteria they want to trigger this notification - i.e. Incoming messages for all groups/channels, Messages where I am mentioned, Direct messages to me, Incoming messages for channels I follow... etc. Look at what options Slack allows…

  16. 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.

  17. Alert Persistence: Allow alerts to linger until dismissed

    Please create an option where alerts that pop up for chats and such do not disappear until dismissed. I am missing alerts because I work with so many monitors. Would like to at least have as an option.

  18. Better notifications!!!

    If you are part of a group, you should automatically get notifications. I should not have to "follow" the channel. In general, the notifications only show up part of the time, go away quickly, and are not eye catching. We are trying to make this our "go-to" platform for the office but notifications have to be improved!

  20. 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.
