There's a lot of resources to make sure that notifications don't pop up - Such as turning Do Not Disturb on and using third party apps. But I want to SHOW the notifications while I'm screen sharing on Zoom.

In this case the notification pops up and I can see it on the host side on the Top Right Corner

But nothing shows up on the client side

  • Do you run fullscreen? I don't use the free Screen Sharing, but I do use Apple Remote Desktop [which is the same technology]. No issues with notifications on local or remote machine.

  • I should have clarified this was when I was attempting to screen share using zoom

The option is easy to overlook, but here's what I found. Within System Preferences, go to Notifications & Focus, and check this box:

Allow Notifications: When mirroring or sharing the display.

  • So even with this setting turned on, zoom hides the notifications
