Pause Notifications Temporarily
When in meetings or other concentrated workflows, it is not easy to pause notifications for a brief period of time without going through the full notifications settings. Can you add a pause feature where you can select the amount of time to pause all notifications?
Yes, it is very annoying when a group chat / channel becomes suddenly hyper-active while typing a message (I have to then go and close the notification multiple times to see the message while I'm typing) or attending a meeting. Every time this has happened, I have wished that there was some magic button on the popup which I could use to snooze that group's notifications for some time.
On the desktop app, I would like to be able to right click, "mute all notifications". Sometimes, I need to concentrate on something and constantly seeing the Teams window blinking and the number of messages clicking up is a big distraction. Make it happen!
I was surprised that this is not already part of Focus Assist in Win10. It is important for when on a call, etc. I had to navigate through Teams settings to turn off the sound.

Yes this is needed. A single button / checkbox to pause/mute all notifications would be great. If you are sharing a screen or in a meeting those pop ups can be a distraction and you may not want them to be seen by the audience.

Enabling focus assist on Win 10 would be great.

A snooze button? Sounds good.
