Banner notification on second monitor
I, and many of my colleagues, do many presentations using screen sharing to potential customers. I share my primary monitor to the customer, but the second monitor is offstage. It would be most helpful to have a setting of where the banner notifications appear (on which screen/monitor). I like getting the notifications, but I need them to show up "offstage" instead of on my primary monitor.
Countless times a day I find myself typing something out and a notification pops up directly over what I'm typing. It completely distracts me and also I have to get the mouse to get rid of it. Need a way to still have notifications but not directly on where you're typing
Loved this option in Skype but our organization has moved to Teams. Really miss the ability to change the banner notification default location.
Yes, I also have the Teams app running on my secondary monitor and would like that chat, notifications, calls etc. woul only pop up/notify me on that monitor. Or al least have a setting that could control where they appear (specific monitor, all monitors etc.)
PLEASE add this feature!
I have two monitors. Mainly just keep Skype and Teams on secondary to avoid this very issue. I think I found a workaround though to this banner issue. If you go to Display Settings and check the box to make your secondary monitor be your primary monitor, you might be ok. Just remember to only present the other monitor? You just can't share your desktop because that is considered your primary monitor.
We are in the process of moving to Teams and this is going to be a huge issue. We need the feature to move the banner ASAP!
I am having the same issue with banner notifications popping up during client meetings while I am sharing my primary screen. I, too, would like to move them to my second (non-primary) monitor so that I can see comments without my client seeing them. Please add this feature ASAP.

At least 27 people voiced this issue since 2019, come on Microsoft!
@Microsoft! So many people including myself asking for this! Change it! It's so annoying that it covers up the chat area! With my business I have many channels going off at once!
Has anyone investigated if there is a regedit setting that might control this?
I would move it permanently to my non-presenting monitor then.
We have an option to dismiss browser notifications, but the browser seems to keep bringing them up anyway (I don't know if the notification settings in Teams are overriding the browser, or if the browser is caching from a time when I told it to allow the notifications). Either way, this means when I am running Teams in both browser and desktop client (b/c I need to be in two accounts simultaneously for testing), I get 2x the notifications, and they are always in the lower right, obscuring each other. I'd definitely love to be able to move the notifications (especially to put the broswer notifications in a different area of the screen than the client notifications)
+1 - if at least they had an option to turn off the Banner but keep the sound... in my case, I decided to turn off Banner for Chat Messages for this same reason discussed here, thinking that the sound notification would still happen... and I ended up missing a lot of messages.

It would be fantastic if the notification bar that pops up can be moved over to my second monitor for Teams Notifications, especially when in a meeting that I am sharing my primary screen. thank you.
Just a tip for all those presenters -> search for "presentationsettings.exe"
Open it and acivate the checkbox for "I am currently giving a presentation" this will deactivate all push notifications and deactivates the screen saver.
Nevertheless, this would be good feature for me as well as I am producing videos and often record my secon monitor and sometimes need to see the notifications in the recording. this would made it way easier and cleaner if the main windows taskbar is not visible with all the icons visible.

In addition, we need to be able to make that choice for each of the different computers we work on - a dual monitor setup needs the notification in a different location than my laptop with a single screen.

Please add the feature. Its so annoying that when I present a training class on Teams that my secondary monitor does not get the alerts, even though the Teams desktop app is running on it.

Please add this feature.
Also, this interrupts games, which is annoying. For. every. IM, even though I have the screen up on a different monitor so I can see them anyway while in game. I understand there are a couple workarounds to this (moving taskbar, turning on DND) but a more elegant solution (since maybe I still want to show as available) is to just set notifications to show up on second monitor.

Today I was sharing my primary screen with a client, and a colleague sent me a mildly-inappropriate message. The banner was seen by all, since I can't tell Teams to make the banner appear on my second monitor.
It was humiliating.
Yes, I know I should have set my status to Do Not Disturb for the duration of the meeting. But this is impractical for two reasons:
1. Colleagues need to send me messages during my presentation: "Speed it up! Boring!"
2. As an idiot, I can't be relied on to remember to turn DND off after the meeting.
In conclusion, your honor, please allow me to set the position of the banner.
Please! I often have several conversations at once, and they all pile upon the last line of conversation that is currently in the window.
