Notification Icon Teams App (PowerApps)

Hi,

is there any way to send a notification to a custom app in Microsoft Teams even if the app is not opened?
I created a PowerApp and integrated it into Teams. What I want to do now, is to send a notification (with this litte "1" on the app Icon) to all users with this app.
This should happen every time I update the contents of the PowerApp (of if I press any button or something).
How can I trigger notifications inside Teams?

Thanks!
BR
Lukas

As we are mainly responsible for general issue of Microsoft Teams, you question more related to development is not in our scope. I will change office-teams-windows-itpro tag to office-teams-app-dev tag. Thanks for you understanding.

Meanwhile, I found an article about Notification-only bots in Microsoft Teams. You could learn more from it.

Hi @LukasBabinger , You can use proactive messaging bot in Teams in this case. It will help you to trigger notification on your event to the user. You can follow the detailed documentation here.
The article provided by @SharonZhao-MSFT also has the details.
Along with this documentation, we have Proactive Bot Samples which you can check out from here

Hi @SaontiMSFT-5720, thanks for your reply, but I think this is not what I want to have. I really want to have the notification on the app itselfe. So the notification-icon (this little red dot, maybe with a "1" on it) should appear right on the app-icon of my custom app created with powerapps.
