You'll get badges and desktop notifications with sounds for your added apps in Shift. Make sure to turn off the auto-hibernate setting for the apps you always want to get notifications for (right-click on the app in the sidebar and select "Auto-Hibernate Off"). This will ensure these apps always send notifications to you for new messages. We recommend turning off auto-hibernate for any messaging-style apps such as Slack, Facebook Messenger, etc.
