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.
Once support for Windows 10 native notifications is released, users who choose to use Windows notifications will be able to utilize Windows OS specific settings for the length of time to display notifications. Mac does not have an OS specific setting, so will not have the support.
Am I missing something? When I click on activity and for example I have 4 items to review. As soon as I click activity 1 all clear from bolded, before the other 3 are reviewed.

I think both the list of chats, adn when in the teams tab the list of channels would benefit from using the same visual and simple approach:
1. Just list the channel or chat name (persons name for most chats).
2. Turn bold and have the red number bubble next to the name if there are unread messages
Clean and simple and good for all themes.

Agreed. The dark theme is much easier on the eyes, but with 10+ chat tabs open throughout the day... I have to hunt for the subtly bolded text. Even adding a dot, an icon, or a color change would go a long way.
If you are part of a group, you should automatically get notifications. I should not have to "follow" the channel. In general, the notifications only show up part of the time, go away quickly, and are not eye catching. We are trying to make this our "go-to" platform for the office but notifications have to be improved!
Popup notification for incoming message is very very important.
Tim Mitchell commented
Currently if you have a chat with multiple members you get a notification for every single message even if they are in rapid succession. Can you allow for notifications based on keywords or only if a message hasn't been sent after a certain time period?
As it is you can only fully turn off notifications or fully turn them on and in chats with active discussion you get blasted with notifications.

Sometimes I miss important messages. Make notifications like slack does
Make notifications persistant... If I miss the pop up , I miss the message ..

Currently, follow the channel option has to be selected by each individual user.
The person who creates the channel should have an option to set follow channel for individual or all members. This would ensure that relevant members are being notified.

Notifications in general need some love.
I can't limit notifications to "Sender Only" or "Hide all Content"
Also I can't turn off banners but keep the orange icon? Seems odd.
please enable notifications, ie: var foo = new Notification(<message>);
Raphi Levine commented
Totally agree. Without a good notification architecture, which allows for each user to customize how notifications should be displayed, where and for how long, with ability to set differently for each Chat\Channel..., the app will not be used!
I am always the first to try new softwares, if they don't make sense or work for me when I try them, then I usually never come back to them, unless they of course become very popular.
I tried Team and was not impressed. It is not very intuitive and not easy to master in the first few minutes of using it. (My team feels the same way.) MSFT messed up again.
We will pass on this (for now).
It might be nice if you changed the color or text of the conversation that has unread messages.
better notification for the team chats
Brandon Murray commented
Using the dark theme, I have to hunt around a bit to find chats with new messages. Since the only notification that a chat with a specific person has new messages is that the text is bolded, it's easy to miss. Would be nice if new chats bubbled up to an "active chats" group or something like that. Or maybe a red notification as to how many chats I haven't read, similar to the one on the "Chat" tab, but specific to a chat.
Currently, notifications are hit or miss. The DM's and @ mentions work, but a chat channel or team update does not. I like that it doesn't send a notification by default like Skype does, but we should be able to toggle it. I'd really like to see notification toggles for each channel and/or team.
Also, custom emojis and emoji reactions. :)

Follow a channel a terrible solution. Especially where most of the users in our groups are ONLY using mobile app (Africa), they might check emails once a week at a central venue. Any app that relies on a second party notification (e.g. email) is NOT going to work for us :( Need a red pop-up notification on icon, like WhatsApp has. Isn't the idea of a platform like Yammer to DECREASE email use?
Jackie Orlando commented
New incoming messages are very easily missed due to lack of visual and repetitive notification. The teams icon in the doc should bounce repeatedly AND show the red notification bubble whenever new messages come in. This should happen regardless of whether the Teams window is active/selected for those with multiple monitors to still have that visual prompt. Users should be able to select what criteria they want to trigger this notification - i.e. Incoming messages for all groups/channels, Messages where I am mentioned, Direct messages to me, Incoming messages for channels I follow... etc. Look at what options Slack allows as a starting place.

We need blinking notifications on windows taskbar, please!
