  1. Notification on Team icon

    I would suggest, if possible, to add notifications on the Team icon on the task bar so we know if there's someone message me. Sometimes, I message my team but they haven't response because there's no notification and even to me, I didn't notice someone message me already. Thanks

  2. Need "In your face" type notification with sounds.

    Conversation notifications need to be more "in your face". It's very subtle at the moment. Sound would be a welcome addition.

  3. Teams Notification

    If the "Teams" tab in Microsoft teams had an option to light up / blink when there are messages waiting in that tab that would be great.

  4. more channels bold

    If there are more than 5 channels then the 6th and additional channels are listed via the cascaded list which appears when one clicks on the "X more channels" link.

    If any of the 6th or remaining channel has new content, it will appear in bold within the cascaded list.

    However, one will not know about this bold text indication until one clicks on the "X more channels" link.

    Suggestion: Please make the "X more channels" bold if any of the additional channel has new content.

  6. Please, for the love of all that is green, make the pop-up notifications DISMISSIBLE

    The pop-up notifications stay for what seems like an eternity. You cannot configure where they pop-up, and you cannot dismiss them. You can only click on them. This is easily the most annoying thing about Teams, anyone who says anything different is wrong or crazy.

  7. Time stamp when each team member views a comment

    We have moved over from WhatsApp and one of the features I used frequently was the information button that told me what time each member of my team viewed a message I posted.

  8. warning "For a richer experience"

    Warning Islands mode Skype for Business users get when pinging a Teams Only user is confusing and it makes them think that the Teams user didn't get their message.

    Change warning received from:
    Error Received:"(user) is not using Skype for Business. For a richer experience, switch to Teams or start a Skype Meeting."

    to something like :

    “(user) received your message, but is now using Teams. For a richer experience, switch to Teams…”

  9. Reopen "Allow setting to remove message contents in banner alerts"

    https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public/suggestions/17058172-allow-setting-to-remove-message-contents-in-banner

    Was marked as completed with no option to make further comments, I think this was incorrect and that it should be reopened.

    There is still no option to hide the message, DnD status is a separate feature. A specific option to hide the text would be safer as you could forget the DnD status or it might be a situation where DnD is not appropriate but you still do not want people around the see the message.

    Furthermore, when an idea is set to complete you should have a feedback phase where you let people comment for a week…

  10. 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.

  11. 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…

  13. Notifications Need to Work for Teams to be Productive

    I just started trying to use Teams, both on my laptop and my Android (Samsung Galaxy S7), have my notifications set and I'm not receiving ANY notifications whatsoever when my team posts to a channel or sends me a message directly using @. If notifications don't work using Teams is not productive and not effective.

    Please work to address this. Thank you.

  14. Notifications using first word of displayname

    Currently Teams is sending notifications towards other users when they are offline or unreachable. In those notifications the first word of the displayname is being used instead of the full Displayname or just the given (first) name. In large organisations this leads to very confusing funny situations. As an example we use as displayname the last name followed by a comma and then the first name.

    So at the end you get notifications like Hi Van, Van has send you a message.

  15. 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.

  18. Deriving first names from display name is a bad idea

    For sorting reasons our company uses display name in the format last name followed by first name; e.g. "Ponguillo Intriago Ronald Alberto"

    In Teams, email and activity feed show silly information such as "Ponguillo posted". Or even "De posted" for "De Feyter Kim" (De Feyter = last name).

    In order to send a notification with a “friendly” intro referring to the first name of the submitter In Teams, you ASSUME that the first chars up to the first space is in fact the first name. It clearly is not if the display name is in the format last name +…

  19. notifications

    Notification options are very limited. I would like to have the option for the Teams application to 'flash' to inform me of notifications, rather than using a banner or email. Banners are disruptive and emails are more spam, if I do not select one of these options for chats I do not get any notification at all.

  20. 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…
