Disable or mute notifications when not attending a meeting
Ability to disable or mute notifications for a meeting you are not actively attending.
Consider the scenario of being double booked or optional for a meeting and you don't join. There is no need for the Chat/IM popups and dings to occur, instead I should look at my activity feed and can then choose if I need to review or not.
Even when the notifications setting is set to "Mute until I join or send a message", some people still get the pop-ups

Fully agree !
Note however that if you "Decline" the invitation (assuming the Teams meeting has been scheduled in either Teams or Outlook with explicit invitation / tracking), you won't receive the notification.
I believe this option is available currently.
For muting other notification sounds and/or popups while in a call, let's combine our votes in this thread here: https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public/suggestions/40228330-automatic-mute-notifications-when-on-video-or-audi

Completely agree! If I'm not in a meeting due to other priorities, I should not be bothered by the chat happening inside that meeting.
Please fix this asap! As of now I have to actively go into Teams and mute each of the chats for meetings I have not joined due to other priorities.
PLEASE add this - it's VERY annoying to get notifications for meetings that just started, that I'm NOT attending (e.g. on my phone/watch).
Oh please yes. Why should I ever get chat notifications for meetings I haven't joined?
