How to enable desktop notifications for browser-based Outlook 365

I use Outlook 365 for my email and calendar and I use the Chrome browser. I do not like using the Outlook Mac application because the pop-up email notifications were so annoying. However, I would love tor get desktop notifications for just my calendar events.

Any tips or tricks for getting desktop or pop-up notifications of Outlook Calendar events?

Currently, the only notifications I receive are small corner notifications in my Outlook browser if I am in a different tab, I do not see them.

I have missed a few meetings because I have forgotten about them and these notifications are so minimal. 

What can I do to make Calendar reminders show up on my screen, in my face, no matter what I'm doing?

Thanks for the help!
