Because Teams is its own custom notification, it doesn't respect the Do Not Disturb setting on the Mac, and has to potential to create unprofessional (or worse, embarrassing) interruptions during presentations and collaboration sessions.
I shouldn't have to disable notifications in the Teams app when there is a mature, user-friendly way built into macOS.
Outlook for Mac is the same with its custom alerts and it's maddening.
Please make Teams notifications standard macOS notifications. Thank you.

Not only do Teams notifications fall outside of the behavior specified by native Mac OS notification in relation to Do No Disturb, but they appear underneath the native OS notifications. So my Teams notifications are constantly getting missed because they quickly appear and disappear underneath my existing reminders/notifications.
Plus, when you try and click a message to Quick Reply or respond, it stays open UNDER the notification and you can't do anything without first closing overlying native notification.

Teams is a great work-group application for macOS. But members of my work-group keep missing their Teams notifications because they appear behind macOS notifications.
You already know how to implement macOS notifications. You've done so for Excel, OneNote, PowerPoint and Remote Desktop (to name a few). So by implementing a different notification scheme for Teams you're creating conflicts with their own applications!!!
Please adopt the macOS notifications for macOS Teams. Or at the very least give us the option to pick which scheme we'd like to use:
(x) Use Teams notifications.
( ) Use macOS-style notifications.

@Samuel_ChanI note that this request on UserVoice is over 3 years old now. It has been in "Working on it" state for nearly 2 years. It has not had an update for nearly a year, and that was a promise of a delivery date half a year ago.
The obvious question is: Why was the native notification mechanism not used from day one? It's a golden rule of UI design that you conform to platform conventions, to avoid surprising your users and to avoid nonsense like this.

I couldn't agree more. I am a programmer and my office uses Teams for all manner of notifications. Sometimes, often, like RIGHT NOW, I need to program and having giant blue banners popping up several times each minute during other people's conversation is really distracting (enough for me to spend many minutes researching how the hell to turn off Teams notifications and why it does not honour my mac's Do Not Disturb setting. It is presumptuous in the extreme. Slack doesn't have this problem.
There is a good reason why notification control is maintained at the OS level, otherwise every app is going to want to not be ignored.

@Robert Boler Agree 100% with everything you said. Hope to see better (native) notifications coming later this year.

Is there a fix on how to prevent Teams from disabling the sound notifications from other mobile apps?
While in a meeting on the DESKTOP app, and I'm also signed in to the mobile app (but not joined in the meeting), Teams prevents all sound notifications from my phone. Is there a setting to prevent this? Thanks
