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
