Option to Show Notifications even if Teams is in Focus
Teams Desktop, Windows
There should be some option(s) for showing notifications even if the Teams conversation in question is in focus. Maybe not Windows banner, alert sound, and an unread item activity all at once. But having just one of those configurable would be very helpful to avoid miscommunication.
Suppose I have conversation open with Sam on one monitor, and am reading on another monitor. Windows focus is on Teams. If Sam sends me a message, I don't get a notification, an alert sound, or an unread message. That's fine if I look back at the conversation. But if Sally messages me, I get a notification. If I then navigate in Teams to look at Sally's message, I might not know I missed a message from Sam for hours.
As of now one has to remember to never leave focus on a Teams conversation while looking at another window / monitor, at the risk of missing something and not knowing it. This is an awkward workaround.
