  2. Notifications for guest account chats

    I belong to 3 Guest Teams Accounts. I get the notification bubble if comments have been added to a guest channel. However, if I am on one of the chats, I don't see the notification bubble to indicate I have a comment to read. Can you look at updating the notification bubble for Guest accounts chats just as you did for the channels?

  3. Filter for @Me

    It would be great to have a filter in teams for @me, so the user can distinguish between general @-notifcations and personal notifications.

  4. Play/Display notification when someone enters a meeting

    When someone enters a meeting, it would be nice to either have a pop-up or sound notification that someone has joined the meeting. You should be able to toggle this on/off so that large meetings can go undisturbed if needed.

  6. Keep incoming call notification topper than message notification.

    When you receiving an incoming call,the call notification will be displayed. If someone sends you a message, or you are in a group chat, the new message notification will be always on the top, which prevents you from accepting the call. and you have to wait for all of the messages notification disappear. It is very inconvenient.

  7. 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.

  8. Configure the notifications for one-to-one chat and group chats seperately.

    Allow us to configure the notifications for one-to-one chat and group chats seperately. For example, so we can turn notifications off for group chats, but still receive notifications in one-to-one chats.

  10. Turn off notifications in meeting

    Would like for pop-up notifications to be automatically disabled when I'm in a meeting (as they interrupt screen-sharing presentations, etc.)

  12. More Consistent Notifications

    Notifications are extremely unreliable, especially in the mobile app. This is especially concerning because an instant messaging software's primary function is to send and receive messages instantaneously, which is rendered moot if the user doesn't receive a notification of said message.

  13. Stop asking me to install the desktop application.

    I'm going to use the web app. I can use the web app on my work Mac, or a work lab PC, or at home on what ever in a pinch. I'm not going to install the Desktop app, stop asking me, or allow me to disable the prompt.

  14. Unique Notifications for Chat vs. Team Updates

    Being a part of many teams means there are regularly updates being posted to one of them as well as chat messages. I tend to prioritize chat messages as someone is looking for a more immediate response but I find that I am constantly having to check teams because I see the notification in the start bar but the update isn't of relevance to me or a priority. The pop-ups in the lower right window can help but if you are focused or presenting you might miss them.
    I would suggest we have the start bar Teams Icon have two…

  15. 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.

  16. 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.

  17. Notifcations on channel

    There should be an option to set up customized notifications or at least an option to enable notifications on all activity in a channel.

    We've got webhooks posting in a channel but the only thing to let us know the webhook has posted is that the channel name goes bold. There should pop up som notification or at least change the icon in the toolbar.

  18. 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.

  20. Allow custom alert tones and let us control the volume

    I don’t understand why this feature isn’t available to allow people to choose their own notification tones and adjust the volume. We use Teams for our Corp collaboration tool and when people reach out via chat I never see or hear the notification
