Chat Notification doesn't recognize Popped Out Window
When I have a chat window Popped Out and I receive a notification, I'll click on it but it opens the chat in the main teams screen and cause any of my apps or windows that I was working on (In Teams) to close. It would be nice if Teams recognized that you had that specfic chat "Popped Out" and would open just that small window.
yes, indeed very annoying!
If you get a chat notification, you must remember that you had this specific chat in a popout window and ignore the notification (don't click on it ;-) ).
Instead, you need to manually open the popout window with that chat in order not to lose the active Teams' windows focus with your main work item.
I still don't get the point why it is not possible to have several Teams instances open anyway, like it is in other Office apps...
Please make this useful!

YES. this is a huge miss. what's the point of having pop out chat/notifications if it doesn't direct you to the pop out. the chat experience now is not great because you can't multi-task in teams. if you're chatting with someone, you have to be on that screen. you can't be chatting and reviewing a document or something unless you pop out the chat. BUT if you accidentally click the notification for the pop out chat, it'll take you back to the client main chat page. it's incredibly frustrating.
