I'm using Mac and one annoying thing is that I'm not getting notified of new messages in team channels (whether I'm mentioned or not) because I missed the banner in the top right of the screen, either from being away from my desk or focusing on my second screen. The red icon is added to the actual application icon in the dock menu when I get a direct chat but there should be something here to indicate that team chats have new messages
This item is still under consideration by the feature team.
My users are also asking for this. To be able to keep the notification until they clic on it. Like the Outlook calendar notifications.
We are in 2020 now, it was suggested in 2017 and under consideration since 2018.
Can you add it as an option so anyone can choose what they consider best?
Microsoft.... You need to fix this. Messages are used differently than email in a business environment and as such, should have an option for a separate notification window (think Outlook reminders... you could even add it to that if you ask me) that can be made persistent if the user desires.

Note that Warren's comment about being "under consideration" is was almost 15 months ago...
I complained to my HUGE employer. Teams sucks compared to Slack. Less info is visible in a larger window, it's very poorly organized. We're trying to use Teams, but we use Slack on the side for notification. I'll blog about how lousy it is. Facebook, Twitter and Google fill the news because of their monopolies and lack of ethics, but Microsoft is the archetype of the evil monopoly.

I just started with a company that uses Teams and this is causing me to miss some important notifications. My last company used Slack where the notification remained until cleared.
This program is SO frustrating!!!! Why can't you Microsoft people make a fricken update where the notifications banner has the option to stay until it is cleared??? EVERY day I miss so many messages at work that just sit there for sometimes over an hour. UGH!!! SO FRUSTRATING!!!
It looks like this issue has been going on for years. WTF????
Please provide an update on this, it is a crucial feature for my team.

I use windows and I would like the chat feature to be distinguished, such as have it open in a separate dialogue box. It gets cumbersome to have to go between every chat while I'm trying to work on files. Plus if I'm not looking at my computer screen for the few seconds the little alert comes up, the icon badge just adds a number to the notification. I get so many alerts. I need something to make it easier to go between chats and to keep working while having chats out, and to know when someone messages me

Is this issue, posted in January 2017 "still under consideration" since September 2018?
Is there really no option to make the notifications stay on screen?
This is ridiculous! If I miss the five seconds the banner notifies me that I have a new message, I am not notified at all. Microsoft, listen to your customers. FIX THIS POS!!!!!
Please give us the option to make them persistent untell addressed by the recipient.
We switched from slack to teams. But as long as the banners disappear automatically, it's not usable! Please Fixed it

This is CRITICAL! My conversations are getting missed/dropped because the notification banners disappear so quickly (on the desktop app)! Please FIX this behavior ASAP!
I recently installed Teams in my organization with excitement to put in a messaging application. To my dismay, the lack of persistance makes it not only challenging, but actually opens a door for dropped communications that we did not have with emailing each other..
It's a good idea, but there really must be a setting to keep the notification window on top, or something more agressive to get a user's attention.
Please add! Thanks.
I want to use this commented
Please copy Slack properly
it's hopeless. almost one and half year past, still under review.
The Tray icon should indicate the notification, not your presence! Should do it like Slack does to be similar rather than making up your own way because it's confusing. But it would also address the persistent notification thing. Very simple.. Red dot means a message directed at you. Orange dot perhaps means new messages (in channels you care about.. which should be configurable). Green dot indicates new messages period. Flashing could indicate a difference between message directed at a group that includes you or reply to your post, versus a message that specifically has you mentioned or a chat.

this is the reason why I will suggest my company to stop working with teams... why using it's own limited notification system when it could be connected to notification center on Mac? That one's is limited, too - but at least it's got persistent notification bubbles....

The platform is useless right now for my team because of a lack of attention to notifications.
Brandon Fertig commented
Should be standard.
