Improving the raise hand UX in Microsoft Teams with a ringtone notification

Iron Contributor

Today, in June 2022, when we “raise hands” in large meetings where we do not have moderators, the notification is hidden or forgotten by the team currently having an active discussion. To improve the user experience, would It be helpful to add a bell sound notification on top of it when raising our hand at first, but also 3 minutes later for the first in line? By doing so, we could, behind the curtains, improve the automated moderation, the inclusiveness, and accessibility of our meetings? Please tell me what you folks think about this. Thank you.


To ensure this idea gets the proper visibility, I submitted my feedback here:
