On mobile, if there's new information in a channel, I see what the information is in my notification (iOS or Android). However, on desktop, I get a notification that ONLY tells me what channel has new information...so I have to switch out of what I'm working in in order to see the actual information it is notifying me about! :sad:

 

Please update desktop notifications to show the actual data, as we have on mobile! This will affect adoption.

I'll write it down in my notes to discuss, but check uservoice for an entry and if you can't find one (sure there is one) then add one and post back here and try to get votes for the idea.

I agree that we should have more toast notification options around how we want them to show. Similar to how some people want chats to not show details like they do etc.
