    This is still being worked upon. Though I don’t have any details I do know the devs are really digging into this one, so I hope to have more information in the near future to share with you all.

        This is taking way too long (since september 2016)! The current version of Teams still doesn't provide the experience in Windows 10 as it should. Notifications are horrible as in inconsistent and sluggish. How about the Fluent Design System? Bring some consistency in this (but also other Microsoft's) software.

        I cannot believe "this is still being worked upon". It has been two years already…

        Please, what is the current status in 2019? :/

        I don't necessarily need the persistent notifications in Windows notification center, but I would love it if Teams would adhere to Do Not Disturb mode (aka Focus Assist).

        The fact that Teams' notifications stay there and often get hidden partially on screen (when changing resolution) but not enough to be closed. I frequently have to close and reopen Teams to clear out those bugged out notifications.

        We definitely need this functionality to get notified for messages in Teams. This is not an application runs silently. Notification is its top one functionality.

        Slack did here a very nice job; get the slack app from the windows store and stop using teams solves your pail!

        This is one of my top requests. I use virtual desktops in Windows daily. If I have teams open on a different virtual desktop then the one I am working on I completely miss the notifications.

        Lack of integration with Window 10 action center continues to be the number one complaint as we roll out Teams.

        I came here to vote no on this proposal for the reason Ssssss gave below: the notification center is already cluttered with things that aren't usually important.
        That said, I see some good reasons in the comments for making the Teams notifications more persistent.

        I agree with others and this is a major complaint from several of my users. Just take a look at how Slack does it and do it like that. Slack's banner is almost twice as big as Teams' banner. Also, Slack integrates with Windows 10 Notifications.

        Make this the #1 priority and get it done. Thank-you.

        Any update? It's so frustrating to be receiving notifications even when the Do Not Disturb mode is on.

      • D. commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        If Windows 10 is in non notification mode, I want to stop Teams banner.

        Not that there aren't enough votes for this or associated comments, so forgive my added comment (vent). I just finished emailing my coworker a profusely apologetic apology because he messaged me *six* days ago on Teams and I just saw his message. And the only reason I saw it? I looked down at my task bar and saw the tiny (tiny!) red dot on the icon and hovered over it to see "New Activity" or some such message.

        So this has my vote! :)

        Super critical, our company is already shelving Skype of Business and the notifications in Teams are terrible. If I step away I have to go to Teams to see what I missed. I'm too busy to go look for this.
