I miss nearly every chat notification every time I'm not looking at my screen. And I use spaces (minimum 3 screens) so i'm almost never viewing the Teams window unless in a meeting or chatting with someone, causing more missed messages.
Put an indicator icon in the menu bar that looks like a light that's green when there are no notifications, and turns red when a notification is is unhandled. NOT flashing, just solid red.
We are getting closer, and are still working thru some bugs, but hope to release this as part of a Public Preview pack in early 2021! (Windows 10 released with the December 2020 pack this week)
