No notification on Windows Desktop if app closed on channel where message posted


Windows 10
Desktop app version 4.4.0
1 - Launch Desktop app
2 - Navigate to a channel
3 - Close the window (click the X so the app is still running on the tray)
4 - Have a user @mention you in that specific channel

Expected: Desktop notification appears

Tested on macOS Catalina and Big Sur, does not appear to be an issue on macOS.

  • v.5.0 BrowserView latest build commit: 31c7987 - as expected, for both when app is closed (x) and/or minimized (-) notification is received; when clicking on the notification the correct channel with the mention opens, the one that was open before minimizing/closing.

  • v4.6.2 - as expectedΒ 

  • v4.5.4 - as expectedΒ 

  • v4.4.2 - as expected
    Let me know if we need to repeat the test on Win 10. Thanks.

We are leaving this in Resolved so we can retest when v4.5 becomes available.
