We are excited to share we have started the roll out of Windows 10 Native Notifications for Teams! The roll out will be completed over the next few weeks, and we will share an update as soon as one is available.

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.

Any update on this guys?
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.
Good news :)
Very happy this is now in "Working on it" Status. Woot!
This is needed, I moved the client app to another Windows 10 virtual desktop and I was missing the notifications, I assumed they were going to be displayed on my current Desktop.
Cary Schweitzer commented
This will work so long as I have to dismiss the notification. I'm tired of missing chats or getting an IM via another client asking if I saw the Teams chat. I shouldn't have to keep randomly checking the application to see if anyone chatted at me.
Hey! In Skype you could reply to messages directly from the notification pop-up. Please institute the same functionality in Teams. Thanks! ^_^
If nothing else, if the system tray icon could change when there are unread messages or include an additional system tray indicator like Outlook does where there is new/unread mail, that would also help.
The lack of reliable notifications for a communication app is simply mind-boggling. It's not a very good communication tool if you aren't aware of new messages that are sent when you aren't looking at the screen the moment it arrives.
People shouldn't have to open up the Teams app periodically just to look for new messages they don't know about or wait for an email alert an hour or so after the message was sent to be notified of a missed conversation. The app should pop up a notification of some kind that should (optionally) persist until it is manually cleared, the app is given focus, or the message is replied to via a quick action (and work across devices, so if message is replied to via mobile it clears the notification on desktop and vice-versa). Yes, all notification options are turned on/enabled as banner+email (or whatever the highest level is per configuration item).
This is also a reported issue for MacOS. https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public/suggestions/16941685-use-built-in-notifications-for-macos
I work for a very large multi-national company and our locale is the guinea pig for a potential Teams adoption across the entire company. Right now I cannot recommend it because of this specific issue.
This should be made the #1 priority above any and all other new features, especially if you want Teams to be a realistic contender for a communication tool. The fact that this issue was first raised in 2016 and it *still* not addressed just doesn't make sense.
Please get this (or some kind of notification system that makes sure users know about *all* of their unread new messages) on the roadmap for the next release.

Likewise, on OS X, use the "Notifications" system.
Integrate Teams notifications into the Windows Toast/Notifications system rather than it's own.
Why is this under review? This is the entire reason theres a notifications system in windows 10. If people need to control how, when, and what sends notifications its much nicer to do it from a central system in windows rather than per app. Theres no reason teams should be using its own notifications instead of the native ones, especially with the plans for continuity stuff in upcoming versions of windows.
I already ignore the Win10 notifications because too many apps spam them with 'look at me - I think I'm important', so this would be a significant backward step.
Look att how Slack does it, and then do just that!
