Notifications for teams
I'm not receiving any notifications from teams.
Each time I select anything in notification settings the selected setting disappears...
Please add to the comments if you are experiencing this. I would like to know the OS and device you are using as well.
I’ll bring this feedback to the feature team and help get this investigated.
I get android notifications but they don't go away if you read the message on desktop. Slack does this, and it's a big waste of time if you go chasing notifications for stuff you've already read!

I use Teams on my Android phone as well. And there are no notifications if there are new messages etc. I have to open teams app regularly to see if there are messages. Other such apps usually give you a notification on the top ribbon of your phone.
I use Teams on a MacBook.
I would like to get notifications of messages in the teams tab (third from the top after Activity and Chat) so that I can response to the various project teams I participate in. Is it possible to enable this feature? If yes, how?
At our firm, we feel it would be helpful to have a global setting that automatically "opts IN" to all notifications for members on the team, leaving them with the option to opt OUT per channel within any team. Our users find it extremely frustrating (and time consuming) trying to (1) figure out which channel they need to check and (2) having inconsistent experiences when they do make a selection (which has already been mentioned in many of the other comments). Thanks.

Considering this issue has been around for almost four years, I would think the actual behavior would be understood by now, but here's what I believe is happening.
MS Teams will send a desktop notification AND update the status bar icon with a number (only if using large icons, small icons won't work) only if:
* The message was in a 1-1 chat (non-team room)
* The message was a @Mention of you
* The message was in a thread you had participated in
Any new message that does not meet any of those conditions will appear in the room without giving you any desktop notification at all. You'll see the team title bold if you're watching the MS Teams gui, but that's all you will get.
I also note that the "Missed activity emails" also only applies under those specified conditions.
I'm using a PC and am having this same issue. I get notifications for 1-on-1 chats but not for anything that happens in a Team room, unless I'm tagged. I've tried every possible notifications setting and still don't get notifications. I don't know I've missed activity in my Team rooms unless I click over, since Teams and Chats don't display in the same tab.
Is it possible to turn off sounds for notifications? I only want to ear calls, not every time a person sends a message
Also happening for my team with posts on a site. This is on the desktop version
This is happening for many of my users, on both iOS and Android devices. One user gets absolutely no notifications - even calls do not go to her Android. All settings have been verified, and I talked to a Microsoft tech the other day. We've just switched to Teams Phones, so this is critical to have working! She is on a TMobile REVVL 5g, Android 10 platform. I am using an iPhone 12 max pro, on iOS 14.2.1. There are a variety of phones experiencing the issue.

We are experiencing issues with Notifications on Mac. We are using macOS Catalina (10.15.7) and macOS Big Sur (11.0.1). the notifications seem to be intermittent. It would be great if the notifications could be integrated in to the macOS notifications system.

Please allow both headset sound and speaker sound for chat notifications. I do not wear my headset unless on a call and there is not a setting to have chat notifications ring on the computer speaker

I find notifications completely unreliable across Windows laptop and Android phone. Seems to be very hit and miss.
Also, we need to be able to make All Activity the default notification level for everyone, but that's a whole other issue...
ios14.0.1. I don't understand the principle for notifications, sometimes they show up, sometimes I see new messages only after I open the app
I don't get any sound notifications when a new message appears in my pinned chats, regardless of my settings. I do however get a sound notification for calls.
I also don't know of a way to mute/stop visual notifications for one conversation (pinned or not) - which would be helpful for large busy group chats I'm sometimes needed in.

I'm not hearing notifications. And they are turned on to "always."

Windows 10, laptop: Whole (very large) office inconsistently receives email notifications of comments entered in a task. We must send secondary emails and/or chat messages, regarding checklist completion or it gets missed.
Windows 10 Pro, v1903. (OS build 18362.959).
I'm more so looking for a resolution to displaying pop-up notifications that come from a team I'm not currently viewing (In the Desktop App when I'm in my local team, or in an external team, I don't receive notifications for the non-active team).
Win 10 V. 1809 (OS build 17763.1217) - solved reinstalling Teams
