  1. Add message to "you got a new team"-email

    When I add new members to a team I would like to add a message to the "you got a new team"-email. Just like that I can add a message when I share a file from OneDrive or SharePoint.

  2. Use Same Notification Sound in iOS App as Desktop App

    You are relying on the default push notification sound on iOS. It would be helpful to have a custom notification sound for Teams notifications so that I know which app is pinging me without looking at my phone. This sort of thing is trivial to implement for an iOS engineer (I know because I've done it before).

    Hopefully you can use the same sound between the desktop and the mobile apps. Thanks!

  4. 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.

  5. Archive Notifications

    It is difficult to keep track of what Notifications have been read or responded to. I propose the addition of an archive or hide option to remove Notifications from the list.

  6. Mute notifications for a length of time (e.g. Mute all for 60 minutes)

    I feel that it would be a great option to temporarily muting the program from notifications especially while using files within it.

  7. Allow admins to control Teams channel notifications for users

    By default the notifications for channels are turned off for new users. This leaves the users clueless if there are any updates in the channels they are a part of. Either admins should be allowed to control this or by default the channel notifications should be turned on for users and later they can turn it on/off as they like.

  8. Get a notification when an Assignment is due

    It would be helpful for pupils and teachers if a notification was sent to remind us an Assignment was due.
    Being able to set how far in advance of the due date the notification is sent would be perfect.
    At the minyte, I am commenting in the conversation the night before an Assignment is due. This is time consuming.

  9. Control notification when Add members

    Team's administrators sometime would like to avoid the automatic built-in email welcome message sent to a new member when he/she's being added to a Team but sent a custom message in a later time explaining the new members the whole contact of the new team they've been invited to. Option to uncheck email notification (similar to what SharePoint provides is very needed to address this scenario.
    In addition, the timing of sending this email welcome message should be changed to after all members at this cycle are being added so admin can regret and remove from the list potential members…

  10. Silence push notifications to mobile device when outlook set to out of office.

    This request is to provide a feature where the teams app installed on a mobile device (iPhone, Android, Windows, etc) to not receive notifications when the person's outlook calendar says OOO for the day or specific time period. This is a grey area since the whole idea is to be informed and "always on" but when on vacation wouldn't want to be disturbed with them and consume unneeded battery life or privacy.

  11. Option Notify Team members when a new channel is created

    We would like to notify the team when a new channel is created.

    We manage small projects and problem tickets using a Microsoft Team. As the number of channels in our team increase it can be easy to miss when a new project or problem channel is created.

    Team member should have the option to enable a notification when a Channel is created. This notification could be implemented as a pop up notification, email, and/or as a card with a button in the General Channel's conversation.

  13. Stop toast notifications, but keep flashing icon in taskbar for notification.

    TEAMS should provide option in settings to disable the toast notifications, but keep the flashing icon in taskbar active. It's very annoying to have a notification pop up in bottom right corner of screen for every single message. Yet still useful to be notified by the flashing icon.

  14. personal chat notifications

    Right now we can manage chat notifications, but it applies to both personal and group chats. It would be ideal to be able to set different notification settings for personal (direct) chats vs. group chats.

  15. 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.

  18. 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.

  19. Enable notifications for Incoming Webhook messages

    Whether I follow a channel explicitly or not, no banner notifications or message count indicators show for messages from Incoming Webhooks.

    There is a StackOverflow question for this as well: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/43764022/how-do-you-get-notifications-from-a-webhook-connector-posting

  20. Notify Screen Presenters of Raised Hands from Participants During Meetings

    In a meeting, when a participant raises their hand, alert the screen presenter with either a more apparent display notification such as a push notification, a unique sound notification (distinguished from chat notification sound), or both. Ideally this feature could be customized to the user's preference, allowing them to choose between the options listed above.
