If I'm logged in on my phone and my laptop I don't need or want my phone getting notifications. Please allow user to define a primary device and only receive notifications on that device when logged in there.

Yes, this is extremely annoying and keeps me from actually liking the app version
When a message is already read in the desktop app, i want notifications in the mobile app to sync / disapear.
Get it to sync with my computer app so I don’t have to remove notifications on two devices.
When I get notifications I receive them on my computer and phone. When I read it on my computer my phone still shows I have a message and vice versa. It would be nice to have them sync so I don’t have to “read” a message twice to get rid of duplicate notifications.

Here is another post that could be combined with this suggestion:
I work with teams on my laptop and also with my smartphone. So whenever i get a notification i first go in teams on my laptop to read the news. But the notficiation point on my smartphone is still there even if i already read the message on my laptop. That's actually very irritating - it would be better when they somehow can connect together.

For a scrum master who is often running around the building it is super annoying that the notification and read status on chat messages is not updated in the android app when the message is read from the desktop app.
It makes it difficult to quickly find the new messages.
It's December now, how about an update?
I often recieve same notification to my phone while working on desktop computer. User should be able to adjust the time after which the user is considered idle.

Cross-device notifications are not synchronized and are frustrating to manage. I have teams on my iPhone and on my Win10 desktop. Each notification I receive on my desktop is also sent to my phone but I have to clear the notifications on both. Which leads me to my second issue: clearing notifications. I literally have to click inside the reply box for almost every notification to clear the orange indicator. Simply being on the page the chat is happening is not enough to clear it. This makes for an incredibly annoying interface.
Fact of the matter is, a lot of us use many different types of messaging apps, but we belong to communities such at school or work who says that we need to use particular apps for particular purposes. This is why I use Teams, because at work we all use it. But I compare this to other apps I use day to day such as Telegram and doing so just highlights the frustrations I have with Teams even more. Telegram seamlessly syncs notifications, I can just move my mouse over the app and it will clear any notification I have on the chat currently visible and I have more granular control over notification settings.
Please, I implore the Teams team to use other applications so you know what to compare yourself against - because we compare Teams to those other apps. You have a long, long way to go and it would make me enjoy using Teams a lot more if it were just a little bit more user-friendly like the other apps many of us also use.
I don't need a notification to all my devices if I'm actively working on my PC. Similar to iMessage, if I'm actively using a device and I get a message, every device in the house doesn't go off, this app should do the same thing!

When writing/chatting on the mobile client (iOS) when you're out and about, the desktop client (Mac) takes forever to catch up with the history - sometimes it doesn't catch up at all. If we leave the desktop unlocked and Teams in focus it works, but that's not feasible in an enterprise environment.

When I get new messages I'll get the push notification, but if I check it on my desktop first it will not sync and clear the notification on my phone. After work I open my phone to see 4 or so "new" messages that clear out only after I open the app.
This is an important one for me. When going back and forth between PC and phone, it is very annoying that although I have read all the messages on one device I still have to clear notifications on the other. This works perfectly on Slack.
I joined an online meeting on my windows desktop. Others participants started posting chat messages. I received notifications for those messages on my mobile phone. This is very distracting. I am already in the meeting on windows. Please stop sending notifications to my phone.
This is super irritating to me as well!
It would be easy to code, just hook into the "mark as read" function and have it send a push to mobile that updates the notifications for the app.
Google Hangouts is really good at it, they remove the banner and change the count flag on the phone when you read it on the computer.
I use Teams on both my desktop and on my iPhone throughout the day. I'd like to be able to configure a delay in notifications getting pushed to my iPhone if I'm active on the desktop application.
For example, if I set Teams to have a 2 minute delay when active on my computer, and I receive a message warranting a notification, if I have not read it on my desktop within 2 minutes, then send a push to my mobile.
Just noticed the same today for the first time.

Slack has this very basic functionality already from the start so why doesn't Teams?
