DO NOT DISTURB- DOESN'T WORK
Make the "Do Not Disturb" actually not disturb! I hate that I still receive notifications on my PC as well as on my phone when in DND. It doesn't even send a message to people that this person is unavailable so they can't send you a message.
Yes, please. Do not disturb should mean just that. No calls, please!
Brandon Charpentier commented
Seriously, fix this. This sucks for everyone.
Heather Graves commented
Please make DND an actual feature that does not allow notifications to bypass, especially with our staff on calls. It is distracting, unprofessional, and makes it difficult for our staff to successfully focus on the customers' needs.
Don't disturb option worked perfectly on Skype. Now it is pointless. Microsoft, please fix it !

Do not Disturb does not looks working, Even after setting DND i am getting notification and messages.
There is another chain where the 'If user is busy then send new call to voicemail' feature is being discussed. This should help for the DnD issue as well as it's very similar in a number of ways.
Please upvote it there too! Microsoft need to see this feature request and implement it ASAP.
We are examining a full rollout of M365 Business Voice and this is a frquent concern of users and may stand in the way of our rollout. Microsoft need to fix this.
If a user has their status set to DnD then an incoming PSTN call should not ring.
The options for what to do with an incoming call when on DnD should be configurable but the default should be set so that when on DnD calls are sent straight to voicemail.
Otherwise it's 7 more clicks (through different settings screens) to do this.

DND seems to keep morphing---how about a three-pronged approach--this should allow users to tailor as they wish and take DND off the table as an ongoing issue---with the following, the universe will be happy(er)
1. Full DND--all calls and all chat--precedence over 2&3 below
2. DND except priority contacts----and allow separate control of Calls vs Chat--on an all or nothing basis---and per-user (below) would take precedence over this
3. DND per person. and the per person would be MUCH easier if it were a matrix----rather than drilling into individual users and setting DND on calls and/or chats, give me a matrix with a Name column, a DND-Chat column, and a DND-Call column, and each cell of the name column is a search on names and i can click to populate and then click to toggle chats on/off and then call on/off....at a glance, i can see who is in my "exclude" list and edit it easily and from a macro-level. this would take precedence over #2, ignored if in Full-DND

FIX IT MICROSOFT!!!!!!
This needs to be fixed!
I'm at a loss with my dismay with Microsoft on this stuff. How is this not in "Working ON" status. This is clearly a bug, not a nice to have. Posted in April of 2018 over a year and a half ago. Did this turn out to be something the user was doing wrong?
I've found that it works when I'm the one presenting in an actual Teams meeting (i.e. scheduled on the calendar, users have to join.) But when I'm doing a screenshare with a user or group of users via a conversation, it doesn't work. It also doesn't respect the priority contacts. Even if I'm not sharing my screen, if I have DND set, I really don't want to get any notifications from anyone but my priority contacts (like my boss.)
Same here. CONSTANTLY being interrupted and havae to force-close Skype so that non-Skype calls and Zoom meetings aren't interrupted! Absurd. Do not disturb worked perfectly for YEARS, and now suddenly doesn't work AT ALL.
Cindy Charrett commented
Has there been any update from Microsoft on this? We are rolling out Teams right now and some of our users are still experiencing this.
Still does not obey DnD when set in macOS. Annoying as ****.
Dan Cumings commented
The DND does not work. I have to close teams in order to not be disturbed. I would love a snooze all notifications for the next x minutes or hours similar to how snoozing on android works.
Brian Anhalt commented
Just switched from Skype to Teams (forced really), amazing Microsoft doesn't have something as simple as this working. Disappointing.
yeah, its really that simple, if you do not want to be disturbed then it means that you dont want to be disturbed. You know they could you know at least stop the loud skype call incoming and just send you a message that "a friend is trying to call you"
Alex Carlock commented
We've also found that because DND still allows messages to come through, people keep sending messages and then call when they don't get a response. DND is not respected in the mobile client (at least that's what my user says) so the call rings through. It'd be better if DND at least informed the sender that the recipient is on DND and may not see the message.
I usually put DND when doing a screen share during meetings. MS Teams ignoring this setting is very disturbing. This is a critical issue for important business meetings.
