Notifications are still a complete disaster in Teams - I never get any notifications no matter how many channels I follow or settings I select. I don't get how this can be so difficult, Skype has been doing a great job forever.
Notifications need a major overhaul in my opinion. The banners are too temporary, I don't want emails because they defeat the purpose of Teams as a separate tool, and I never ever get notification icons anywhere on my desktop (task bar or quick launch).
I’m going to close this thread out with a Thank you!

Please up-vote the appropriate topics you support.
This feature request is still on in the backlog. No new updates available at this time.
We have been iterating on different designs and are starting to test internally. I don’t have a timeframe but will keep you posted.
This is still being worked upon. I hope to have more details in the next couple months.
Please know the team is actively working on this feature.
This item is still under consideration by the feature team.
Notifications are almost the worst part of this app. I think maybe the problem is that Teams doesn't seem to have any concept of a multi-monitor world. If you use it on anything other than your primary monitor forget about useful notifications.
I'm not on a Mac but the notifications in Windows are brutal. I have Teams on a second monitor and I have never seen a red dot on the Teams icon in my system tray, or on the Teams icon in my second monitor status bar - ever. If I miss the banner I'm hooped unless I check into the window every now and again. The email notification is sporadic at best, most times I get hours old notifications sometime late in the day.

The zoom feature has released to the public ring. Using CRTL + or CTRL – zoom in and out on a Windows PC.
I need to correct the information I provided last month about MAC. It appears the MAC version is still in testing and hasn’t yet gone out to the public. It is “In Testing” but will be coming to the public soon!
The item tracking this specific update can be found at: https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/admin/v3/suggestions/16933183/activity
There now is a UI element that tells you your current zoom level and a Setting within the UI to preset your zoom preference.
Since the zoom feature could very well cover the vast majority of user needs, based on the majority of comments and feedback, I will flag this item as Partially Done.
Thank you for all the feedback and support!
We’re currently working on defining a compact mode experience. I will post more details when we have more to share.
It looks like some people in the thread below have figured it out — we actually have this. You can start a chat both ways; the system will automatically recognize if this person is on Skype for Business or on Teams.
Thanks and let me know if you have any questions.
I agree with the comment below - Use search to find them and then start a conversation.
Due to prioritization of other work-items this has been moved to the backlog. We will update when it is being actively worked on again.
Performance has been and continues to be a big focus area for Teams. One main area we have made improvements in is responsiveness for the most frequent user actions of switching between Chat, Channel, and Activity. We are also focused on reducing resource consumption and application load time. More improvements are on the way.
We are still considering this feature for future releases, and will continue to update the status when it changes.
This is in internal testing. I don’t have exact timing for you, but wanted to let you know it is coming!
