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 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?
