  1. Notifier

    The notifier for teams on pc is woefully inadequate. When I am working and I have several windows open, my focus is not in Teams. Sometimes messages go unnoticed because the notifier is too tame. An instant message, by its nature, should need immediate attention. Please allow us to customize the notifier so that we can change the sound, increase the volume and change the focus.

  2. Allow popup window to be disabled

    I like the sound cue, but not the popup window, and I can't disable just the latter in Notifications. The popup window is annoying for me: 1) it pops up right over a Teams message I'm currently typing in and I have to wait for it to go away to continue typing, 2) In share screen meeting mode I don't want people to see who is messaging me. I've searched for fixes and not found one, if there is please email. I love Teams, just not this lack of customization for notifications.

  5. Notification tweaks (there's too many for chat conversations)

    Notifications have become an issue. If I am on Teams via my Windows 10 client AND actively participating in a chat conversation, my phone sitting next to me should not be dinging every single time someone enters a new chat message. Teams should be aware when I am using it and will focus its notifications and attention to the device I'm using it on

    Additionally, if there is an active chat I am not taking part of, I DO want that notification, but I don't want my phone going off 1,000 times while I'm ignoring that conversation. There should be…

  7. Add *ALL* chats to the Chat notification on the left bar

    Please add ALL chat notifications - DM and team channel chats -- to the "Chats" icon on the left. I often miss chats that are sent in a given Team-based channel, and I am not alone -- most of my colleagues miss chat notifications when coming from a team channel chat rather than direct message Chat.

  8. New Emoji for Thank You

    Add a THANK YOU emoji so we can express our appreciation at the end of an event, without contributing to a long line of chat messages that block the screen for transitioning to other tasks.

  9. Flag me for Voice or Video

    Show me what kind of call I'm getting so I can answer in kind.

    There's always this awkward transition when you're in a different format from your team mate; one of you has to add or remove video to match. Show me what kind of call is coming in so I can answer in kind.

  10. Allow moving notifications to an area where they are less likely to be missed.

    My configuration has four monitors and notifications currently pop up outside of the field of vision where I do most of my work. I often leave my headphones plugged in and do not hear the audio signals. It would be nice to be able to move notifications to appear right in the middle of my main screen or to have some other, optional method to get my attention, such as a screen flash or a kick in the shin, anything bolder to get my attention. - FAA/DOT user

  11. Hide chat popups for current meeting

    When participating in a meeting and having the conversation open, if MS Teams is full screen the popup chat notifications cover the most recent chat message and the area where you can type. Popups notifications should automatically be disabled if the conversation window is open and message is from the current meeting.

    sound notification too short and too soft compare to skype (have maxed volume on laptop). Need an ability to increase sound notification length and make it louder or be able to change it like in skype

    Can the application stop adding pop-up notification in the center of the screen as people join during a meeting as it interrupts the though flow and can also mask shared screen/ documents. Make smaller and to one corner perhaps.

  15. Notifications

    When I open my app, or I get a notification, it does not go straight to the newest message. I have to scroll through all teams, groups and threads to hopefully find the newest message or post.

  16. expand notifications

    Expand notifications to include updates to new list app. This list app has enormous potential for collaboration, but is seriously hampered if channel users are not informed of updates.

  18. I need to have constant access and notifications for two separate orgs

    I need to use teams for my civilian employment and my national guard role. I need to be reachable for both, so it is not enough to be able to switch back and forth.
    Thank you

  19. move notification

    Give the option to move notification popups to another location on the screen.

    I have alerts set to notify me of the statuses of team members that I would like to continue to receive. However they appear on the bottom right corner of the screen. Everything we do is located in the bottom right corner of the screen - email notifications pop up, the scroll bar covers this area, and quick reply to chats also appears in this area. It would be GREAT to have the option to receive notifications adn have them appear in another location on the screen…

  20. Logging in every day is unreasonably onerous

    Logging in with two factor authentication instead of less frequently is unreasonably onerous. Teams also stops sending me message push notifications if I don’t log in every day. This is not how smart devices or human beings work and it needs to change to make teams an effective messaging platform.
