Option to disable banner while still receiving notification
We would like to have an option that disables the pop-up notification but still allows the icon to blink on the taskbar, like Skype or Skype for Business.
Currently we only have the option to have the pop-up banners which are intrusive on a single screen setup, or to disable them completely.
I agree with above. I quite often don't notice that I've got a new message with the number that comes up. I really need the whole icon to flash like Skype does. Also if I could get the banner to appear on my second monitor I might use it, but as it is it always comes up on my primary monitor interrupting what I'm doing.
Pop up banners are extremely annoying even on dual monitor setups. The banner constantly pops on the first screen even when the app is on the second screen. They also aren't useful since most people are constantly chatting and a popup for each message is totally worthless.
Add the ability to move the pop up banner and the ability to disable the banner entirely. Disabling the banner should NOT disable the icon flashing on the start menu. The flashing icon is a much better new message notification and should really be the default with banners requiring manual user activation.

Just been trying to disable the pop-up banner as it interferes with other work I'm doing and presentations, but there doesn't seem to be an easy way to do this (and one option for all notification types). Need to turn off the banner while still letting the icon flash.

The banners are intrusive on a single screen set-up while I am working with two panes, which I have to do only periodically. There is no quick way to disable all banners, as you have to go through and manually change about 12 different banner notification options every time under "Settings." I would like to be able to work for an hour without the nuisance of the banners taking up screen space, but then be able to revert to previous settings and get the banners back in just a few clicks.
