When using both the desktop and mobile apps, notifications are not kept in sync. For example, when a notification is cleared on the desktop app, it doesn't remove it from the mobile app (and visa-versa).
Keeping these in sync would make it clear what you've already dealt with and what's still outstanding so that you can easily transition between devices.

Come on folks, that's a very basic requirement on an integrated platform like Teams. I just annoying to being forced to dismiss the messages that we already visualized (or even replied) on the desktop. Pleas help us!

This is so super annoying, I pick up my phone and lunch time and I have about 100 mobile teams notifications, but I've been using the desktop app all day and have read all the messages. Which means I end up clearing all my notifications and then lose the notifications from other apps, which is super annoying.
When my teams are in communication, there's no need for me to see 25 notifications. Just one notification with every one inside of it.

On iOS... would be great if an iOS notification for a message had options to favourite/save/reply to a message without having to unlock the device and open the Teams app.
When a message is read on a PC, or on a phone, the opposite device should mark it as read so it clears.
I work on both desktop and iPhone app. The notifications turn up on my iPhone even when I've read a message on my desktop first.
The reading of messaging does not sync between desktop and mobile app.
I have to manually sync my app just to get rid of the notifications.

I'm finding that notifications sometimes do not appear at all for unread items. Other times, despite having read the message, I will receive a notification 30 minutes or so later even though it was read.
When a message has already been viewed on desktop, remove the corresponding number on the phone app. For instance, if I've already viewed all my messages on desktop, the phone app should have no alerts, instead of 75.

In addition to dismissing notifications for conversations that are read on desktop, the Teams app needs to do this for conversations that are read on the local device! For example, if I receive separate chat messages from Person A and Person B, I get both as notifications on my phone. If I click the notification from Person A, read that chat, then switch to the chat with Person B inside the Teams app and read their message, the notification for Person B's chat does not go away. This can be rather annoying, especially if you are catching up on multiple conversations in the morning for example.
I get notification for all the read messages on desktop app when mobile app is connected to internet. The mobile app should only show the unread messages. Both mobile app and desktop app need to be in sync.
If I am having a conversation on teams web version and then when i switch to the mobile app... There is no sync of the conversation on the app.
Please fix this bug and sync updates well across all devices

I am still getting mobile notifications even though I have my desktop application open and active.

With the latest desktop and mobile apps as of 2017-03-02 and the mobile app set to notifications when not active on desktop, I still receive notifications in the mobile app while actively in a chat in the desktop app and activity stating available.
This setting is in the iOS app as: "Only when I'm not active on desktop". However, notification syncing from the desktop client to the mobile app seems too quick. For instance, if I were to get a notification on the desktop client but don't interact with it for less than a second, the notification will immediately appear in my mobile app.
I think the syncing needs to be smarter or there needs to be another setting which indicates how long to wait before sending the notification to the mobile app.

It's an option for this in the Android app - but it does NOT work! My phone keeps vibrating for every message I get on the laptop.
This feature implemented on android but not on Windows Mobile. Come on Microsoft!

Stop notification on the phone if I am logged in on my computer.
