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.

Looks like this is implemented already.... Go to the Team Meeting that you are not attending and click the three dots...... Select Mute or UnMute as appropriate.
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?
