Notifications sound without banner
In notifications, there should be an option to have sound play for any item (replies, mentions, etc) without having to turn on banner mode.
We use MS Teams at work. I have a large team (20+ ppl) and also work cross-functionally with a few other teams. This results in me receiving a lot of messages throughout the day. The banners flood my screen, covering up other things I am working on, essentially forcing me to stop what I am working on mid thought to attend to the incoming messages. It would be must more efficient if I had the option to hear that something has come in without seeing more clutter on my screen. Another option would to create an icon like the new mail icon for outlook that appears in the taskbar notification area.
Taking up my screen is a non-starter.

Second this. In a front-desk/intake capacity we get a ton of messages, and working from home we don't have great screen space provided to us (just the laptop screen).
Being able to have the pings without the screen real estate being taken would be a game changer.
