Hi, when I receive chat messages I am receiving a notification for every message and these are stacking which then covers the right side of screen. It is annoying because you need to then close each one manually to get your screen space back. I would like to have the notifications but is there a way for the notification to change to something like "You have n messages" rather than showing the message each time and blocking my screen?

These banners shouldn't be persistant? They should go away after some time ( about 10 sec )

Although, they will stack up if you recieve several messages after another in a short amount of time! 

 

First of all there is no way of customizing how banners are shown, but there are other alternatives:

 

You can silence a initiated chat by right click it and choose mute ! You will now longer get those for this chat til you activate it again!

 

You can also turn of banners for chat in your profile at the top right - > settings -> notifications

But remember this is now for all chat messages!

And remember for channel conversations - just follow the channels you want to receive notifications for!

To follow up on Adam’s points here there are multiple uservoices open for consolidated notifications like one every 5 minutes

https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public/suggestions/35662129-make-notifications-co...

Would recommend you vote on these. Hope Microsoft picks up and to at least have the option to have this in the future to avoid the issues you are having!

Best, Chris
