Hi there! I have created a private Teams channel with a few members. We receive our notifications from Posts solely in the Activity Feed and as banners - no notifications are produced in the actual Teams section of the desktop app.

 

Is there a way to enable notifications to pop up in the Teams section of the app - as badges, like notifications in the 'Chat' section - and not in the Activity Feed?

Teams notifications do not leave toasts at all unless you are specifically @mentioned or the channel is @mentioned (or now a tag) regardless of channel type.

 

Currently only subscribed notifications show up in activity feed and channels with unread activity that you have "Shown" will also appear as bold if new activity exists. Hope this helps.
