BUG: TEAMS does not respect focus assist settings
Focus assistant was turned on but notifications from teams (collegea chatting with me) were displayed as pop-up in the right bottom corner

This issue is the same as this one https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public/suggestions/16950997-integrate-with-windows-10-notification-center which has way more votes :) It must be integrated with native windows 10 notifications to take the focus assist into account.
Currently the notifications banner are not integrated with windows so they come regardless of the focus assist status
I have the opposite problem: DND is on "alarms only" and it ignores someone calling me on teams! it is a call, it is more important than an alarm, is not it?

ARE YOU KIDDING ME WITH THIS?
This is both a security and a productivity issue. B/c of this I have to shut down teams if a client sets up a meeting invite in anything other than teams.I also have to shut down teams while trying to focus. DND doesn't do the the job b/c that blocks the sender entirely, meaning they end up needing to send an email. Meanwhile, other chat tools seem to be perfectly capable of respecting these settings.
Yo, this literally pulls me out of full screen apps. Like, when I'm playing games. Do you know how frustrating it is to get slapped in Dark Souls because a Teams notification popped? Fix this.

I second David's post! It is SO HARD to focus in virtual meetings when a Teams thread explodes out of the blue. Opening Teams, finding the thread and muting it - and then remembering to unmute it later - is really clunky when you're trying to focus on some key detail in a meeting.

This is so painful. Please get this fixed. Especially now. I'm on teams and zoom all day focus assist would really help.

We need two tiers of notification options. Do Not Disturb is a way to indicate to the service itself that we don't want notifications.
But I want to suppress desktop notifications and keep mobile notifications sometimes.

This is ridiculous - a Microsoft app ignoring a *key windows feature*. The only way to turn it off is to totally exit teams
This is a security issue. If you're presenting on a projector or another meeting tool, then teams won't flip you to DND and you need to manage multiple settings in multiple places in order to lock down.

+1. "Do not disturb" can stop the alerts but we need some linking of these modes
