Notifications should be customizable to make dock icon bounce repeatedly
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.
Yes, please add this! HipChat has the bouncing icon feature and I never missed a notification. We just switched over to Teams, and I'm constantly missing messages.

Yes please add this. i miss so many conversations and alerts because i may not be looking at the correct screen when it pops up or i don't have my headphones one. I look so bad missing conversations and only seeing them and hour or two later when i notice i am missing one.

Users at our institution are asking us for this feature.

Too many times I miss the banner and don't realize there is a person attempting to converse with em. I hid the doc to save real estate. Allowing the icon to bounce will draw my attention and help me respond more timely.
