Hi Microsoft,

 

I recently moved from Ubuntu to Mac and feel very annoyed when some Teams notification comes on Right Top whereas in both Windows and Ubuntu it is positioned at Right Bottom.

 

Is there a particular reason to do so especially for Mac?

 

Reason for it being annoying:

It hides the browser tabs in chrome/firefox and I have to close the notifications before I can access my tabs.

Check my attachment to better understand what I mean to say

 

I understand there would be a reason for you to do so, but please help to provide an option to user to move it to Right Bottom or Right Top so that we choose what is best for us.

 

Same is the problem with Outlook Email notification on Mac. But the Calendar notification are good in Outlook for Mac. Thanks for that.

 

I hope you will understand this problem and help to resolve it asap.

Hi @swinderjuneja   There are a few items in our Uservoice feedback forum that may pertain to this issue.  If you have time, we encourage you to go there and vote for the one that most approximates what you're asking for.  I found one that's getting a lot of traction but if it's not exactly appropriate, there are others.  https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public/suggestions/37137694--mac-banner-notificat...

 

Thank you for being a member of the community.

@swinderjuneja MSFT doesn't care about Mac Users and how poorly implemented the notifications are. They've had a uservoice ticket open about it for going on 3 years now, and they've done nothing to fix it. 

Just wanted to let you know that no one will answer you or fix it, unfortunately. At least if that uservoice ticket is any indication.
