I have notifications on minimum to avoid too much distraction with my work. However, there are individuals that I need to respond fast and it would be great if we could define VIP people for which we could make different rules for notifications from the rest of the pack.
Badly need the message notification popup, similar to what we have in Skype. Lots of important messages need immediate response

Need an option added for a chime - or siren (nah just kidding) for chat notifications.
Seriously now, a pop up or sound notification is needed, just like most of the other chat or communications apps.
If I'm standing next to my computer, but not looking at it, I miss Chats because I can't hear the chime. I never miss when Outlook or other software gives me a notification. If I turn the computer volume up, everything else is too loud. Since this software makes me miss time-critical conversations (which is supposed to be its purpose) I'm doing my best to get our company to switch to something that doesn't get me in trouble.

Excellent point Just missed a very important meeting with my boss... . 4 min into the meeting time he sent a message via teams to ask if I am showing up. 8 min later I see that I have an open IM in teams. It would be very helpful if we had the ability to set a VIP alert to pop up in a window... flash, jump around or something that is very visible and does not go away without action.. why did I miss the IM... Priority situition for a Ransomware issue with a cusotmer. NO matter what the excuse is... I would like MS Teams to help me like Outlook does ensure I am responding to VIP's messages ahead of others.
