  1. 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.

  2. 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).

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  10. Automatically update status/location (ie working from home/in office) based off location

    It was nice in Skype that it would automatically update to my default status "In Office" when at my work location or to "Working from Home" when at my home location. I switch back and forth between the two locations every day so now have to type in a new status/location every morning when I log in.

  11. Auto Do Not Disturb during meetings

    Currently, Teams automatically changes your status during an Outlook scheduled meeting to "Busy." Can you make it an option to have it automatically change to "Do Not Disturb"? I often take my laptop to in-person meetings and keep getting distracted with banner messages.

  13. Private Chat Notifications

    An option for the popup notifications for chat to not display the actual message being sent. In case the message is private, the popup should only say "John Smith sent a chat" instead of the full message.

  14. hide notifications when on a call

    When on a call or in a meeting, hide the notification window to avoid distractions. It pops up and covers part of the screen, causing a distraction when you are talking.

  15. I want a separate option for sound notifications for calls and messages

    I want a separate option for sound notifications for calls and messages. The current "Notification sound" includes "Call, mention, chat" as one option.

  17. 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.

  20. Set Notifications per channel

    Currently we can only set notification for the all App. I want to be able to set notification per channel, like I can do in Slack.
    Also, I would like to set different notification for the mobile app.
