Increase duration for desktop notifications
The channel/team on which the notification has been made should stay more/better/longer visible so that you won't miss one.
With the rollout of support for native Windows 10 OS native notifications, you are able to increase banner duration from 5 seconds all the way to 5 minutes. To learn more, please visit https://support.microsoft.com/office/change-your-notifications-style-in-teams-0da93820-93d0-4da3-86b6-fc28d19908e3 and https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/make-windows-easier-to-hear-9c18cfdc-63be-2d47-0f4f-5b00facfd2e1.
Native Mac notifications are in the process of rolling out, and once you have that build, you can also do the same for Mac notifications. (see https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public/suggestions/17679433-persistent-notification)

My question is why doesn't Microsoft's own product integrate with the inbuilt notifications in Windows 10? Hardly a glowing endorsement...
Would be good at least to show the count of missed/unread messages. The highlighted titel as an indicator is not obvious also on the app icon would be good to display the total count (ofcourse up to a point as number 1000 is overkill so like 99+ if someone is that popular) vs just an indicator that there is something.
Emails and skype did this type of feature best so just use the same thing, or at least make it a feature that can be enabled/disapled in the layout/theme settings area
When sending a new proposed time on a meeting that is scheduled through MS Teams it sends the notification to the team name instead of the person who organized the meeting. No one is getting the notification that the meeting needs to change. Can the organizer be the team member creating the meeting instead of the project? We are looking at switching from Skype to MS Teams and we have 30,000 + people.
There are many channels in my company. I picked up some channels to follow but still often missing notifications. I am not sure if this is a bug.
Its 2019 and this is still a major issue with MS Teams. Please add more robust and clear to see notifications. If you need an example look at any other chat/group app ever made. Please!
The setting for 'Missed activity emails' in Notifications, Win app, keeps resetting to 'As soon as possible', each time a new update is received. If I set it once it should stick.

The most salient feature of a communications app is not missing notifications. If people wanted to poll for messages they will use email. I miss slack, but I guess you sold it to the CIO so that all that matters. Perhaps you have designed yourself in a corner and can't support it.
Is there any update on this? My company was just forced onto Teams from Skype for Business; we used SuperToast and now we're missing notifications because 1) it doesn't stay on the screen long enough and 2) we all have multiple monitors and don't see it when it's not on the monitor we are looking at. More customization options like SuperToast would be great.
Maybe Microsoft can buy SuperToast so that Teams is better.
this needs to be fixed as soon as or otherwise we will have to find another messaging platform.

Just rolled Teams out to 500 person organization and removed Skype for Business - this is by far the biggest complaint; with as many cool features that Teams has it is overshadowed by this frustrating experience of missing chats. Please review this feature again and make IT's life easier with the transition from Skype to Teams. *Also my biggest complaint* I feel like I have to have Teams up on my screen at all times so I don't miss an IM.
Allowing the Teams Mac app to use the standard system notifications centre like everything else would fix this. Don't get why this is a problem to implement. Not having this feature adds to the sense that Teams is unfinished.
Why can we not have the channels behaving and integrated like the regular chats? (Like Jabber does).
Sometime, Teams does not notify me when someone has sent me a chat message. This has resulted in slow communication and misunderstanding. Please look into it when you have a chance. Thanks
It was smart to make android notifications depending on a status on the desktop.
Please consider window state "minimized to tray" equal to "away" status without a timer.

Teams does not show up properly in the Win 10 "Notifications and Actions" settings page. As a result, I don't see any notifications and often miss people chatting.

You're killin' us, Smalls. Our company's number one complaint about Teams is the delayed/missed notifications. Give us the ability to manage how long the notification remains on the screen, add a tray icon indicator or recommend a 3rd party app like SuperToast to overcome Teams notification dysfunction.

Can't believe this is still a problem. Over a year and no fix :(

I've had several people in our system admin group ask me to switch back to Skype for Business because they don't see the Teams notifications for my IMs in a timely fashion if they even notice them at all. Unfortunately due to sync issues with Skype I've already been migrated to Teams by our end user group and I do not have the option to go back. Skype-for-Business-style notifications would be an awesome option for people struggling to adopt Teams during the transition while Skype is phased out.
Half the time when you get a notification on your phone and open the app you first need to login (somehow remember me seems to suffer acute dementia) and then the notification doesn't show up in the app forcing you to have to visit all pages to search for something new.
That is if you get a notification at all because the other half of the time I don't get any notification
