    I'm copying and pasting my response into multiple threads so apologize for the redundancy, but I see a lot of users saying to change how the banner notifications are set but I don't that's the problem with not seeing notifications. I'm a UI/UX designer working on a Mac if that helps.

    "I wish there was an easier way to visually see unread notifications.

    For the Microsoft team, when there are multiple unread messages, most of them go missed since the Activity feed shows everything and there's no ability to keep the unread filter on after navigating away from the Activity panel.

    I would love to see a way to keep the unread filter active OR keep the red dot on the Chat and Teams panel icons until those individual messages are clicked on, whether it be within the Activity panel or the native channels. Many of my coworkers do not see notifications, most specifically from the Teams section. Because of this, we do not utilize the Teams section and only really use the Chat section. Something about the UX is just not making notifications easy to find."

    Once support for Windows 10 native notifications is released, users who choose to use Windows notifications will be able to utilize Windows OS specific settings for the length of time to display notifications. Mac does not have an OS specific setting, so will not have the support.

    I wrote this in a forum but want to share here. There is definitely a UX problem with notifications. I am a UX/UI designer and work on a Mac.
