Hi Folks,

i am with my team into ms teams for 2 weeks now and i know this has been already answered in different threads, but still:

1/ Notifs when new channel is created are not popping up 

2/ Notifs when new post is made in channel are not popping up ((channel is just marked in bold. You receive new post info only in case you use @....)

 

Suggestion:

Would it be possible to add a "new message" feature on every team icon and every channel icon, when new channel is created/ post in channel is made? Top right corner of channel icon, or top right corner in channel description.

 

This would really help improve user exp. as i want to primarily use this to delegate tasks via new channel creation in different team.

thanks in advance for reading this!

MM.

Basically, You use "favorite" and "follow this channel" for this! 

When you create a channel you can choose to favorite the channel for everyone in the team! This means it will show for everyone! 

People will get icon and notification IF the follow the channel!

 

If you like other ways for this to work or improvements, please post this on Teams user voice:

thanks Adam, will give it a try.

M.

Great! Let me know!

 

Adam

Actually you only get notifications and bold channel when favorite. You only get an icon when important message or mention occurrs. You do however get activity feed posts and banner notification for mentions or all messages on followed channels. If you want everyone to get a message or notification for a new channel then you can create it. Set the auto favorite flag then at mention the channel and everyone will get an icon. An activity feed and a banner assuming notifications are set to default. (And an email if they are not active or logged in).

Yup! Thanks for clarifying Chris

Hi Chris,

thanks for your reply.

I tried following: https://support.office.com/en-us/article/auto-favorite-channels-for-the-whole-team-a948272c-5aa5-429...

 

It is working, but only for new channels created. You cannot choose this for channel "general", which seems to be created by default with every new team. Why is that?

MM.

 

If you right click a team -> “manage team” -> on the channels tab there is an option to mark as favorite on each channel

The general channel is always created and cannot be deleted or renamed! Why? Cause MS says so :)

This channel is always visible anyway

Adam

Hi Adam,

i am aware of this. The question though is, why channel "general" cannot be set to auto-favourite like the rest. 

Pls see prt sc attached.

MM.

Because  the general channel is always visible by default

Hi Adam,

i dont think so. When i set the auto-favourite condintion for the two channels in that team, i ve immediately received a notification about activity there, as my colleague posted test message to channel's wall. If we do the same in general, no notif. will appear in activity tab, hence no alert displays in taskbar.

Can you maybe check on your end?

M.

can you try follow the general channel?

u're right. solved

Many thanks for support!

MM.

Great ! Mark best response as well for other people to know!
