Integrate with MacOS notifications
Notifications built into the OS (which all apps I've seen use other than Outlook and now Teams) are more functional and allow for more user control. Most importantly, they honor Do Not Disturb settings, which is critical.
We are continuing to work on this feature. As with Windows notifications, we are also doing work to give users the choice between Teams notifications & Mac notifications.
We will update you as work progresses.
+1 Need this feature now. Super annoying to be sharing your screen for a presentation and having all notifications silenced except for Teams because it doesn't follow the built-in notification system.
This feature is absolutely essential, especially with more people telecommuting right now, we can't have these notifications interrupting meetings. We need them to respect the Do Not Disturb feature.
It's shocking that this is still an issue...

If Teams is *minimized* on a Mac laptop, you do *NOT* get *ANY* notifications. There are other posts related to this, and this is related to no integration with MacOS notifications. My team and I stopped using Teams because of this. What's the point of sending an instant message if there's a good chance the other person won't see it?

There are MANY MANY MANY solid reasons presented here for Teams to use OS-level notifications, but what is really amazing to me is that Teams (which still does NOT have them) is the replacement/upgrade for Skype for Business, which DOES. I noticed this problem immediately while attempting to transition to the "improved" solution.
If this is not the highest priority item for the macOS client, something is seriously wrong. MS should be embarrassed by this failure. Supporting native notifications on macOS is not hard, I have worked with those APIs before. In fact, the decision to use a custom solution here is baffling. If I was not forced to use Teams by my company, I would switch to Slack for this reason alone. My favorite is when a notification from a MS Office app that does support native notifications (eg auto update) is covering a Teams notification 😂😭. This would keep me up at night if I was a production owner for this application.

The Teams notifications are driving me crazy. If I have any native notifications pop ups on the screen and I receive any Teams notification, they appear beneath the other pop ups and it's a mess.
Can you please make Teams pop ups appear as Mac OS notifications?
Hello? Is this coming? Working from home is ruined because there are no native Mac notifications.
If you're working in fullscreen you miss Teams notifications, only sound goes through, that's awful. When you are presenting your screen is stacked with Teams notifications, which is even worse. Why does Microsoft invent a wheel where it's been already invented? One of the reasons I'll never use Outlook is its notifications in macOS. Please, demolish and build as it should have been.

Any ETA? In these non-stop video chatting days having teams notifications pop up while screen sharing is definitely problematic.

Waiting since February 13 :)
This would be nice.

This has to be one of the most infuriating features. Especially if you have a large company and get a lot of notifications. I've been actively promoting my company to switch to slack because of this.

Thank you for working on this. Hope it comes soon!

With an increased number of video conferences during Covid-19 shutdowns, it is really annoying to have Teams pop up notifications, especially when screen sharing to present. Being able to get all notifications muted with Do Not Disturb is now more important than ever.

Simply support 'Push Notification' and integration will be done by macOS.
This feature is requested at https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public/suggestions/16941685-integrate-with-macos-notifications
This morning an important demo with screen sharing had embarassing/annoying moments because of Teams not honoring the "Do Not Disturb" system setting. I had to quit Teams to silence it. Really an incredible flaw in a corporate level application (and more than 3yrs after it first emerged).
