Stacking Chat Notifications
This might be more windows UX but it would be nice if the notifications stacked for chats. I am part of an active group chat and I don't want to disable notifications completely but it is also distracting when there are notifications all up the side of my computer!

Has anyone seen if Microsoft will do anything about this? It is really annoying to see the notifications build up on the side of the screen and then have to close each one individually. Ideally it should work like Outlook where it auto hides after a couple seconds, and shows that you have multiple messages, rather showing all of them separately.

My company has been using Jabber for years, where there is always max one notification visible on screen. When receiving a lot of messages, only the latest one is visible, which avoids using too much screen space. Also, notifications are in a small discreet white panel : all this makes it not too intrusive nor distracting.
My biggest annoyance with our migration to Teams is that, in the same situation, Teams displays all notifications on top of each other, taking up the whole side of the screen.
And notifications are big purple windows too, making it basically impossible to work on something else at that time.
So far, my only solution is to mute people or groups, which is bad because then I may miss useful messages as well : it would be good to just allow for a less intrusive notification system.
