  1. Notifications for activities across all Team that you are a member of. Not just chat.

    Most activities are invisible - the only way to spot new stuff is to look through every Team that you are a member of.

  2. Make email notifications more terse and useful

    An example of an email notification I received had a subject that amounted to "So-and-so mentioned our team" and a body that started out with "Hi User! You're missing all the action in Microsoft Teams!"

    The subject was not informative and the text above the actual content was just marketing ********. Please just get to the point.

    Also, please include more information in the subject line. I generally don't read anything more than the subject on these without a good reason, and you certainly didn't give me one.

  4. Stop sending me emails if I don't read a message on Teams immediately! I don't want them but I can't switch them off.

    Stop sending me an email if I don't read a Teams message within half an hour. I don't want a reminder but I can't disable this in the app.

  5. setting that notifies entire team when starting a new conversation without having to @general

    My team is only 2 people. We want a setting that allows our team to notify one another that a new conversation was started without having to @ them, but still have other teams on the @general setting.

    Every time I get logged out and log back in, my notifications settings get reset and I start getting notifications for everything. Please preserve my selections.

  14. getting a alert when a new channel has been created

    There a few alerts but nothing when a new channel is created, a banner and email similar to other alerts
    we use teams to work on issues, with a new channel for each issue, it would be nice to get a alert when a channel is created

  15. Update word choice in notifications email: it's not Options, it's "Settings"

    Not a big deal: but the email I received notifying me of new messages has an explanation of how to change email notification settings... but the word used (Options) is not what it is called when changing the setting in Teams. It should say "Settings." See attached screenshot.

  16. Teams Download & Conditional Access

    We have enable Conditional Access controls to prevent users from using applications that do support MAM. This include the Teams desktop app. When a user clicks on an email that notifies him/her about being mentioned, the link opens the default browser and propts two things:
    1. Find a compatible app in the Microsoft App Store but Teams is not in the Store so there are no results
    2. Download the Team app but this results in the user wasting time as Conditional Access polices prevent using the app

    I suggest some potential solutions:
    1. Allow the user to choose a…

  18. edited comments not flagged

    There is a way to edit one's own comment - which is good, however, if one edits a comment, it is not flagged as an edited comment. This can lead to people not noticing the edit.

    we have this!  ·  Suphatra responded

    They are! Just see next to the time stamp of the message — it will say “Edited.”

  19. Display user notification status on card

    Please display other users notification status in Chat, and in the users contact card. This allows us to see if the other user will be notified (and possibly allow us to override that status if it's urgent).

  20. re-notification of urgency message

    I want to send multiple notifications to the person about a message which priority is "Urgent".
    The current notification method is "Notify every 2 minutes", but the notification is not sent after the person confirmed.

    I want you to be able to send the re-notification by clicking the "Urgent" icon next to the message.
