    This feature request is still being reviewed by the feature team. No ETA for a decision yet.

    What can I do to escalate this? This is a critical part to the entire idea behind Teams. How can people collaborate together in one place without notifications of communication? An email distribution list is still a better choice at this moment. I can’t imagine what the intended design purpose of withholding this feature could be. And from what I read, I am not alone in these thoughts.

    I would like to mention a few things I tried to “trick” Teams into an alert. Unfortunately they failed, but maybe this will give someone an idea.

    First test: I sent an email with @someone in the subject.
    Second test: I sent an email with @someone in the body of the email.

    But I think what would need to happen is for the @someone to somehow get into the conversation part.

    This is not a solution as it is not reasonable to ask people to include this in an email. But I was hoping to maybe prepend the email with @groupname if my test worked.

    Thank you for your time
