Allow us to turn of flashing taskbar notifications
Flashing taskbar notifications are a bit annoying, and it would be nice to have the option to turn off that flashing (while keeping popup notifications enabled).

This flashing icon is infuriating. If it blinked 2 or 3 times and then stopped fine, but it just doesn't stop and it DEMANDS my attention.
I am a developer and this type of distraction is very disruptive.
An overlay on the taskbar icon that shows new messages is all it need.

It would be nice if Teams would simply respect default OS behavior and not force flash the taskbar button even if ForegroundFlashCount is set to 0.
Please prioritize this. Right now, if I want to have any notifications at all, my only option is to get two visual artifacts per notification: a banner, which is not integrated into the Windows 10 Action Center, and then the Teams window flashing in the Taskbar. I want the banner notification, integrated into Action Center, but once that's done, there's no need to have the Taskbar icon flashing at me. The flashing turns Teams into a distraction engine. Electron is not an excuse for a first-party Microsoft app not to properly integrate into Windows 10.
The flashing is very annoying/distracting and adds to work stress.
please add option to disable.

For Prash, if I'm AFK and I miss the pop-up, then that's on me. I can always check Teams to see if there's activity I've missed, but I get a _lot_ of activity and the taskbar seems to be flashing all the time. It's very distracting.

Please fix the flashing icon bug. If the application gains focus after a notification is displayed, the icon does not need to flash. I have clearly acknowledged the notification. Don't make me break my workflow and alt-tab again to make the icon stop flashing. Incredibly annoying.
What if you're AFK and miss the pop up?
