Allow different notifications options on teams and channels
Saju Nair commented
Ability to set/reset "flags" on members in the team. This would help to allocate Action Items to a member, and for him/her to be able to reset the flag, once the activity is completed..

Please improve notifications. Many times I receive messages and have no idea
Need notification in a channel even if we are not mentioned you alway if the option to unsubscribe from getting notifications from a particular channel or team

Need the ability to setup email notifications. Most of our organization logs on infrequently and I'd like to have the ability to notify them via email, when a group is tagged. Need more options here for sure.
For us macOS users, it'd also be a fine time to actually start using the Notification Center so I can track notifications after the banner disappears.
Definitely need a badge and or bouncing icon in the application dock to know when you have a new message
Notifications need a major overhaul in my opinion. The banners are too temporary, I don't want emails because they defeat the purpose of Teams as a separate tool, and I never ever get notification icons anywhere on my desktop (task bar or quick launch).

Extremely ineffective teams tool if notifications options are not present (e.g. email), especially for mobile teams who are not online all the time.
I see this is planned. I hope it takes into account the feedback outlined in
https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public-preview/suggestions/16988692-assign-members-to-channels which (I think) is related. Assigning Members to Channels would set default notifications - with different defaults being set for the Team.

I would like the ability to control notification settings for each team and channel that I am included in. Similar to Skype, there are sometimes very active channels that I would only like to be notified of if I get an @mention, but my global settings should remain as my general notification preference for channels I have not configured more granularly

You got notification in a channel only if you include an @NameOfTheTeam which is a bit cumbersome.
We need automatic notification trough the app and mobile app.

Do we have any update/ETA on this? We could really do with some more engagement Microsoft, it's all gone quiet.
The challenge I have is that I'm trialing teams with some groups of colleagues, and whilst the initial response is very positive, since there are no notifications on new team messages people just forget that teams is there, and engagement doesn't stick.
External users I can live without for the time being, but this is #1 priority for me.
This is also very important to my team. Specifically, we would like the option to be notified on every new conversation in a team, as well as the ability to choose to be notified to all new replies or only new replies to conversations we have either created or participated in.
I'd love to see how many teams have had an update on my task bar as I'm am member of several

I really need to be able to "mute" a specific channel. There are some channels I would like to browse casually, but not be notified when the channel itself is @mentioned.
Desktop notifications in the web app also critically important for us (https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public-preview/suggestions/16939057-use-desktop-notifications-on-web-browsers)

We have moved back to Slack until this feature can be added.

please add this feature this is a make or break for us to. we are not getting notifications with the team chats.
Not getting notification on group chat is a deal breaker.
I don't know other teams but this is too important for our team communication. Would be enough to add notification settings per group chat. So, people don't want to get notifications won't get them.
Unfortunately, we changed back to using Slack until this is implemented.

Any ETA on when this feature will be available?
Many of my emailing distribution groups are moving to Teams, so I'd like to apply different notification settings per team and channel, so that I can focus on the things that are important to me.
