As a user, I have many apps open at once, so Station is often in the background. Currently, there’s no way for me to see that I have a notification in Station without me actually going into Station, toggling between the 5 apps I have there, and manually finding the notification. It seems as though the only app I have in Station that does this currently is FB Messenger, which adds a badge icon in my dock if there is a new message. I use Hangouts at work a lot, and I can’t really use Station for it since there’s no notification system external to the app.
Rambox has support for Notification Center for many of it’s connected apps, and it would be great if Station could adopt something similar. Even within Station, if I’m looking at an app other than Hangouts, it still does not notify me if there’s a new message in any way. This is also true for Trello, Jira, Box, etc…
