Integrate with MacOS notifications
Notifications built into the OS (which all apps I've seen use other than Outlook and now Teams) are more functional and allow for more user control. Most importantly, they honor Do Not Disturb settings, which is critical.
We are continuing to work on this feature. As with Windows notifications, we are also doing work to give users the choice between Teams notifications & Mac notifications.
We will update you as work progresses.
So Microsoft, still no update? Didn’t we wait long enough already? It’s not hard to pull the switch to enable this for ALL users

This is crazy. 'Upgraded' from Skype for Business, and now I'm missing meetings. I hear the call coming through on my headphones but there's literally nothing to click on to answer it. This needs fixing urgently.
This is more important now than ever with so many companies working from home and remotely. Being able to have a unified notification system and way for these messaged to be set to part of "Do not Disturb" is crucial to have effective meetings and to make sure important messages are responded to in a timely fashion and not missed. I understand there is a lot going on right now, but it's really not that complex and every other messaging platform has accomplished this.

There is no reason for this. The API is there for use in Electron
Middle of meetings and BAM Teams notification, BAM outlook notification! BAM Teams notification, BAM outlook notification! BAM Teams notification, BAM outlook notification!
Teams and outlook flat out ignore the DO NOT DISTURB feature on all Apple products, notification settings are ignored! What the **** Microsoft? Billions of dollars and notifications are an issue? SMH
Last part of my rant, why is it we MUST use only what Micorosft wants for notification sounds? You folks really cannot just let it be like other apps on the devices?
It would be very nice if Microsoft could share any information about when this is going to roll out. 4+ years of waiting is apparently still not long enough...

only 4 years... thanks M$...
Seems like this is going to roll out next month: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoft-365/roadmap?searchterms=57213&rtc=1&market=us&filters=&searchterms=66743
This has possibly been enabled in a recent app update?
They are using version 1.3.00.21953.
Respecting mac DND is so straightforward that dragging your feet for 2 1/2 years shows just the mentality of microsoft.
Just. Wow. Microsoft has been "WORKING ON IT" since 24 April 2018 if the tag next to "Warren" is to be believed.
Let's see... that's 28 months to date... to implement a (proper) notification feature.

Are there any updates?
Please! CMD+TAB to this app and it selects the Microsoft Teams Notification window, not chat... so you cant type unless you click the "Type New Message" PLEASE!!!!!
Do you need help? This is a joke by now!
"Working" on a feature for 2.5 years when it should've been since the beginning (facepalm)

Seriously, what the ****.
Between this and the MASSIVE resource consumption of Teams, my willingness to continue using the Teams app is diminishing QUICKLY. I tried teams via the browser but the cursor issues were KILLING my productivity... All of these are blocking issues have me rethinking the company choice to move to Teams.
We're now halfway of the next milestone: didn't make it in the first half of the month August! Hoorah!

I hope that working on the choice is not what makes you take sooooo. long to fix this.
If it is, then I have a hint for you : drop that at once and use the built in notifications system.
Thank you !
@Alex, you mentioned you hope to have the ready by end of June 2019...
