Respect Focus Assist
Teams should respect Windows Focus Assist settings. I'm not even sure how apps are allowed to override Windows settings like this.
I put Windows Focus Assist into Alarms Only mode so I could record screen captures and I Teams kept popping up notifications over my application. I had to completely exit Teams so I could finish my task.

How can this still be ignored? Focus Assist is supposed to control your notifications. It is extremely annoying when you try to set Focus Assist to alarms only because you needed to present your screen or somebody walked into your cubicle, only to realize seconds later that it stopped all notifications except Microsoft Teams. : |
How is this still not resolved already?
Teams not respecting the user's OS settings is absurd.
I don't want PMs showing up when I'm presenting.
I don't want to use the "do not disturb" setting as it's not my intention to dissuade colleagues from messaging me.
I don't want to toggle multiple settings to make Teams do what the OS is trying to do.
Still not fixed. That's amazing Microsoft ;)

This is still an issue today, 7/28 with 1903.
Surprisingly "Focus Assist' mode (Windows 10) was introduced months before the Teams development team introduced the "Do not disturb" mode 😁. Please add support for this system-wide setting of 'Focus assist'? If a similar mode exists for MacOS, please support both.
Duplicates of this suggestion:
Set you status to "Do not disturb" to hide notifications during meetings.
But combined with Focus Assist, i.e. setting DND automatically during quiet hours, would be a neat feature, of course.

Notifications are so aggressive, there is no proper way to control them during meeting.

In addition to up-voting these items, you should hit ? button and "report a problem" from within the application.

Drastically surprised that this only has 5 votes. There is a duplicate with 5 votes too. This is not ideal when duplicating my screen to present and toast notifications come up in Windows 10.
We're also experiencing this issue. Is this a bug, or has this feature not been implemented yet?
