  2. Notification

    Notifications badges are connected with the notifications in status bar, if I removed notification from status bar notification badges disappear in the same moment from the top of app icon.
    I used to follow up my missed notification from this badge, most of time I like my status bar to be clear. But I don’t like the notification to be disappeared form the application until I open the messages or notification.

  6. Getting windows desktop notifications on my android device

    Would love to get windows desktop notifications also sent to my android with ms launcher or the phone companion app, that would be super excellent. Alternatively, if this is already a thing, I can't find it in the settings, so please make it easier to find. Thanks!

  7. Notification preview on long pressing an icon is missing

    Notification preview on long pressing an icon is missing. It allows to check for notifications without opening the app itself. Please bring this feature ASAP.

  10. Notifications

    Please add the long press to view notifications from the icon, and also add an option to resize the notification badges. They are humongous and out of place.

  16. I think you should try make a Microsoft version of 'ultra battery mode' for a Huawei phone.

    When you pull down the quick settings bar and press 'Ultra battery' it should bring up a Microsoft version of it.

  17. Notification previews. When long pressing an app icon with a notification, I would like to see more information about the notification.

    When long pressing an app with a notification, I would like to see what the notification is. Also, give the user the option to select a default calendar app.

  18. let's have proper notification banners on the ambient display. also add an adjustable persistence timer.

    it means I don't need to wake up the phone to read notification details. saves time and battery.

  20. I have the MS To Do app and I use the MS launcher. they both notify to do reminders. always 2 reminders. need granular notification settings

    these days Android apps don't just have a single, individual toggle for notifications. You can drill down and toggle certain types of notifications. I've seen apps with 10 types of notifications getting very granular. You could at least separate all launcher notifications into one group and to-do notifications in one more. So that at the launcher level I can disable to-do notifications. Since they'd probably be more optimal inside of their personal to-do app.
