Use built in notifications for macOS
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 getting closer… the team is almost ready to rollout MacOS notification support internally for testing – we hope to have it to the public by the end of this quarter.
We very much need this, as we miss out on notifications a lot now!
Native notifications will also work when working in full-screen-mode on Mac.
Rogério Munhoz commented
Besides that, you can't use features we're all used to like swiping right on the touchpad to dismiss the notification. Plus, the design has nothing to do with MacOS
Strongly agree... Notifications from Teams are garish, distracting and completely ignore the settings on my Mac (including Do Not Disturb).
Yes please! System notification integration!

Teams notifications are embarrassing during presentations. Why can't it simply follow the macOS DND logic? DND is there to prevent notifications whilst not having to shut down every essential app. If it's all too much trouble, could you not allow us to at least manage notifications via system preference with badge number options only?
YES PLEASE. Can't wait. Loved how slack handled notifications on mac and IOS

Your notifications need to be ported to notification manager. Proprietary MS notifications appear behind all other notifications on OSX, super annoying.

same for Windows 10 please! Use HTML5 Notification for https://teams.microsoft.com

Please use the OSX-native Notifications mechanism build into the OS for MS Teams notifications. In this way, you will allow Teams users to manage Notifications in the same way as they do all other OSX apps.

Notifications in Teams is intrusive and annoying. Use MacOS notifications and bounce the dock icon.

"working on it" Finally ! this is currently my biggest gripe by far.
Matt Mendick commented
Fantastic news - Thank you!
"Working on it" That is fantastic. Look forward to the update!!!
Teams notifications are useless 80% of the time as they're usually hidden beneath an existing OSX Notification / Reminder in that top corner.
The ability for MS Teams to use OSX native notifications is obvious and crucial.

This is critical for adoption - AND Skype for Business are already using this method.
Najdan Tomic commented
This is crucial. Current notification system on teams is unreliable and most of the time you don't see the notification or it's hidden behind something. And when I do not want to see notifications (DND) they just pop up.
Jameson Tyler commented
It's really sad that integrations with other apps are prioritized over core functionality of the Teams app. Turning off notifs until this is fixed.

It is incredibly annoying that this feature is not implemented. You either do not care about people using you software or do not care about this particular product.
Please give us some control. At very least allow me to choose it to dissapear on its own after a couple seconds.
