  2. Option to Turn off Vibrate for Chat

    Allowing users to choose to vibrate or not would be great. I want to get notifications for chats but I don't want my phone to vibrate, it's annoying and uses up battery life.

  5. Stop marking items as read

    When I move between chats, teams, channels; or first open teams the first item is automatically marked as read and becomes plain text.

    This means it’s easily missed.

    Stop doing that. Instead, don’t have that item selected, make it that you have to select it.

  6. Have sound for incoming calls only

    Teams is barely usable for me due to the very limited sound options - particularly only being able to have 'All' (which is far too distracting as you get a beep for every chat message), or 'Call, mention and chat' (seems to be same as All except if banners are turned off) or 'Off'.

    I cannot have popup banners as they are far too distracting, disabling these also seems to stop 'call mention and chat' working though.

    Can we have a 'Calls' section in the notifications options so we can hear a sound for incoming calls but disable sound for…

  7. Smart Notifications

    Stop sending notifications of activity in a chat that I am currently viewing!! I already know there is activity, I'm looking right at it!!

    Seriously though, if I am actively in a chat/thread, there is no need to make a notification. Surely there has to be a way to enable smart notifications. I only need to know what's happening in other channels/chats that I'm not currently viewing.

  10. Toast Pop Out

    When a new chat notification toast pop up appears, it would be nice to have the Pop Out icon on the notification to open the chat in a new pop out window.

  11. Chat Notification doesn't recognize Popped Out Window

    When I have a chat window Popped Out and I receive a notification, I'll click on it but it opens the chat in the main teams screen and cause any of my apps or windows that I was working on (In Teams) to close. It would be nice if Teams recognized that you had that specfic chat "Popped Out" and would open just that small window.

  12. Enable Reaction emojis in the Banner Notification

    When user gets a banner notification (in the corner near the systray), they are able to type a quick reply right there in the notification window, and then it disappears. But if they just want to give a quick reaction (thumbs up, or whatever), they have to click on the notification and open the app. I'd much rather be able to just right-click on the notification itself and add my reaction emoji.

  16. Notifications: Control Blinking, Banner, Email Separately

    Currently there is no way to separate banner notifications from blinking taskbar notifications from emails. I'd like to be able to control these things separately.

    The banner notification is useful for me and an email would be too.

    However, the blinking notifications in the task bar are a huge interruption to my workflow. To make it stop blinking i need to open teams, select the appropriate chat, and then if I don't read & deal with the message right away - there's no reminder to come back to it. I would prefer an icon or symbol that reminds me that…

  19. (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.

  20. 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.
