Meetings Notifications during meeting Chat and Notes
When in a meeting: If someone posts a comment on the chat there needs to be a better notification that a new chat message has been entered. Don't make it overly distracting but important enough that it shows up as some kind of icon. I have been in too many meetings where a chat comment is made an no one knows about on the other end. So it never became valuable input to the meeting and just wasted time and energy during the meeting. Maybe just a small chat icon with light bulb or similar expression that pops up in the top right for a few seconds (and should not care whether meeting is in presentation /screen share/full screen mode). Make it semi-similar to how the pop-up comes in for accepting a caller into the meeting.
The same rule should apply for when a new note is made (maybe just the initial entry of a subject/topic line).
I do like that chats and notes are saved after the meeting. That is an awesome feature.
I think there are different situations with the chat in a meeting. There's the chat icon which has a little icon over it when the chat window isn't open but someone has input a chat message. I can see that whether I'm a participant or in presenter mode. I have full control over it and I'm ok with it as is. However, if the meeting has been setup in a Team Channel, whether I attend the meeting or not, I get chat popups on my screen that cover up a portion of my screen, including the chat panel. I find those popups really annoying, especially if I'm not attending the meeting. I then have to go to the Recent Chat and select Mute to no longer receive the popups. Really shouldn't be a necessary step. There should be a setting that allows you to see the chat panel if you're in the meeting or after the meeting, but not see popups unless you choose to see them during the meeting.
Windows 10 Toast Messages are being suppressed during the Team meeting - which seems to be suppressing the messages during the meeting. We can see the chat message popups on phones, just not in Windows 10. Once the meeting is over, all of the suppressed toast messages appear - which is a real problem. Would be best to be a configurable option for each user - with different options for: Participant, Sharing Desktop, Meeting Organizer and admin ability to set defaults for each meeting.

Hi Team, Chat notifications are not shown up to the presenter, please make chat notifications shown up when sharing screen.

Please make the chat notification more prominent so that even if someone if screen sharing, they will know that there is a new message for the meeting/call which is being shared by one of the participants.

I would like to be alerted to see notifications coming through when I am the presenter which is currently not available to me.
Even as presenter, I would like to be able to see chat messages coming through... which I can't currently. Something that will be extremely useful to avoid repeating question when they've been answered over the chat!
