Use native Apple Notifications on macOS
Please get rid of the pop ups notifications and switch to the native macOS style notifications.

Still needing this.... two threads have been under review for years!
This is a MUST have. The current Outlook notifications can show up at any location on my monitors which can cause me to miss meetings. If I try and keep them in the same place as the OS notifications the Outlook notifications get hidden behind persistent OS notifications. IMO the current notification system is a lose lose.

I actually like the separate notifications, so maybe have an option to turn it on or off?
Kevin Leinen commented
Please use the native notifications, it would be great.
Totally agree. It's nuts that MS are still using a custom notification.
Surprised this has not been mentioned. When you turn on "Do Not Disturb" for Apple Notifications, Outlook follows that for email notifications, but NOT for meeting reminders. So when you are in an online meeting or giving a presentation, you have popups and sounds interrupting because Outlook doesn't follow the OS standards. Embarrassing to have popups and sounds in middle of other things when Notifications are off.

Please! I'd finally be able to stop using Apple Calendar if this gets implemented!

It's 2020, why would anyone implement their own notifications on an OS? Nobody on a Mac wants to see those ugly Windows like notifications. Really.
Vikram Kamath commented
It's really frustrating when trying to dismiss a notification bring up the Outlook window.
Bill Bates commented
All app notifications on the Mac should use the native OS functionality or at the very least give us the choice.
Absolutely. I'd also argue for a broader "use native" approach for everything you can. Why re-invent the wheel? Use Native Notifications, native contacts (there is one other feedback question on that), and anything else where there's a duplication of a (somewhat obvious) native system solution.
At least an option in settings to use the native system notifications or integrate the native system contacts, at the minimum.
YES PLEASE. It drives me bananas when a notification from Outlook comes up while I'm in another app, and I hit Snooze or Dismiss, and that causes the main Outlook window to the forefront. Even worse when I keep Outlook in full-screen mode, and it forces that screen to switch to Outlook, moving me away from my current app, all because I DISMISSED A NOTIFICATION. Cmonnnnnnn.

Agrre! Fix outlook on mac please! Gove us calendar in notification center and let us disable that annoying redundant popu from outlook.
Totally agree, I miss many meetings and other very important things in Outlook because this horrible reminder. People do more work than sit in Outlook 24/7. Let us see notifications with Apples Notification system. Buy this is Microsoft. How many years has Apple had built in MacOS notifications, and this is just "under review". More like Microsoft #DontCare

I've bee wanting this since Office 2011 for Mac. Please implement!
A notification center widget would be a huge plus as well.
It makes no sense not to use native notifications.
As part of this, adding a notification badge to the Outlook icon in the app tray would be good. Teams already does this to show how many unread messages there are and I would like the same behavior for Outlook.

I am constantly missing meetings because I don't see the notification popup as it doesn't display when using apps in full screen.
Native notifications; and maybe a widget for the Notification Centre to help with upcoming reminders/events.
Also, native notifications allow native fine-tuned control by the end-users.
Same applies to Teams—the Teams notifications are infuriating.
