  • No, the system provided templates are the only ones available.

  • what if i have to group two or more notifications into a single notification .

    ex:in the Skype metro app we receive separate notification for each message from the same person. I would like to avoid that and display all the message from the  person into a single notification

    how can i achieve that ?

  • You need to combine the messages on the server before sending them.

    See the Toast notification overview and the Guidelines for toast notifications (Windows Store apps) (Windows)‎

    Combine multiple related updates that occur within a short period of time into a single toast notification. For instance, if you have three new updates that arrive at the same time, the app or app server should raise a single notification that states that there are three new updates rather than three separate notifications.
