Make notifications come in batches so I don't get a new notification ever few seconds when a live chat is happening
Make an option for notifications to come in batches so I don't get a new notification ever few seconds when a live chat is happening. For instance, have all notifications consolidate into one pop up every 5 minutes.
It's annoying to see constant notifications and I'm trying to get something else done. I don't want to have to change the setting to not display notifications because I'll likely forget to switch it back and could miss something important.
No new updates? It's been 2 years......
In addition to batching the requests it would be nice if the time limit was configurable. For instance, to receive one batch of notifications every X minutes.
Especially since notifications don't seem to appear on the task bar anymore -- I remember when we'd get a flashing notification up there to say that I have a message and it didn't matter if it was 1 message or 200. Now when I step away, I have a notification from 10 minutes ago. Then I go to the messaging app and reply, then I get a series of notifications for the other 100 messages that I missed (and have since replied to!)...
I agree this enhancement would be very helpful. I am frequently a member of several ongoing group chats and this is problematic when several responses are received at once - would prefer to see chat responses consolidated and a simple notice saying you have received xx number of responses (like my car notification works when I receive multiple text messages). thx
I have used skype for business for many years. The app icon on the status bar would blink to indicate no messages, and Teams doesn't apear to have that feature. Switching from a Teams file view or following a shared screen during a meeting to a chat message is tough.
I need this, please, there is too much going on when group chats are going on, and I cannot mute notifications due to the importance. Please, I want only one notification showing how many new messages there are to read at hone time, not 100! Thanks! :)
Please make this an option!! The multiple notifications are extremely irritating and distracting while trying to work. I have to keep the banners on as to not miss anything, but taking the time to close out each one is tedious and frustrating. Please consolidate!!

I would agree with Joseph Anderson.One banner per chat, from which the contents get replaced with the latest message coming in, would be very nice. That way when 2 people chat with you, you get only 2 banners instead of one per message, which hogs all the screen space.

another adjustment would be for the second message from the same channel/conversation to replace the first, and have a See More marker. Then instead of 12 messages from John I would see the last one, but know that it was a multiple.

Currently these messages are stacking which is very disruptive if you are busy doing other work. Notifications should work like Outlook so that they don't become invasive.
