Allow for Secure Notification Banners without Text
Please allow for Banner notifications to have a function where the banner only shows who the message is coming from and not display text. This is a more secure/private notification function that is easier to recognize than a the desktop icon that blinks.
I've had to turn off all banner notifications so that sensitive message text isn't viewed by everyone while I'm hooked up to a monitor in a conference room. Now I'm missing vital notifications! Skype had the option to remove text from notifications, wish that Teams did too!

Couldn't agree more. This is a core function in other chat applications and I would love to see this feature added to Teams.

Agreeing with the other comment. If someone is at my desk and if somebody else were to message me about that person, about the conversation they can overhear, or any other sensitive information that I don't want the visitor to see; I don't want the text to show up and I don't want to have to turn on DND every time someone comes to my desk. The ability to hide text and just get a banner that indicates a sender sent something is a feature in Google Hangouts, I imagine Microsoft Teams can execute a similar privacy feature.

This was asked for in https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public/suggestions/17058172-allow-setting-to-remove-message-contents-in-banner but the solution was to hide banners when in presenting mode, which isn't really a solution.
Being able to see who notified you without the content of the message being displayed for all to see is vital for privacy, security and sensitivity.
