turn off sounds
I want to be able to TURN OFF notification sounds. I don't mind the visual notification, but the sound is very distracting. I want to be able to concentrate on what I'm doing without the constant distraction of the sounds.
only call notifications please don't need the ding every time. If i'm using my bluetooth headphones and listening to something on my phone I don't want to hear the dings
This is a really, really bad design. It took my the whole of the meeting to figure out how to turn off the annoying bing noises every time someone typed a comment. I couldn't concentrate and I've missed most of what the meeting was about. There should be a button to click that is on the same screen as the meeting you are listening to that enables you to mute notifications. I eventually found it by clicking on my profile, settings, Notifications, Meetings. You will see 2 options. Meeting started notification and there is a dropdown next to Meeting chat notifications. Select Mute.

How is CONSTANT interruption with the notification ding useful?

I really hate to use Microsoft Teams! Sadly using it not an option in my company. Every single people have to use it and it gives noise all the time. The only way to make it shut up if we mute the whole pc.How can mute the notifications? Just them not the whole!
I just found this vote today, after having to listen to constant bleeping in a department meeting with 250 people. And this vote is 'only' 2 years old? What the frog, Mickeysoft. FIx this!!! Shut this app up.
A propos, the suggested solution to mute the 'Meeting Notifications'does NOT work...

I can't believe something so basic was not implemented. I hate sound notification, it messes up my concentration but I can't turn down the sound because the calling sound is important and I need some sound for videos and other tools.
This is very basic setting which was expected by MS for TEAMS. Hope they enroll it soon in next updates.

I've found that the audible notification is making me a much less productive worker.
Kind of surprising that the UI/UX team who designed MS Teams didn't even consider this?
The setting don’t work...Mute is on, notification sounds are off and this thing keeps pinging.....how do I make it stop?

My issue is that my bluetooth headset is connected to my laptop and my cell, so if I'm on a cell phone call and someone starts a Teams meeting that I'm a part of, the banner appears, my cell call get put on hold, and I hear the audible chime that the meeting is started. It takes about 10 seconds for the Teams banner to "hang up" and my headset switches back to my cell call. There is no notification that I can see, short of disabling the Meeting Started Notification all together.
Found this thread looking for a solution (and can commiserate on the collective annoyance!!!) ...and after tinkering, looks like there's finally a way to do it:
1. Click on your profile pic in the top right-hand corner of Teams
2. Select "Settings"
3. Go to "Notifications."
4. Scroll to the the "Meetings" heading (section below "Other")
5. Click the drop-down beside "Meeting Notifications"
6. Set to MUTE.

For god's sake, please make it an option to mute notification sounds *while in a call/meeting*, and make it the default!
People don't want to hear the beeps/rings in the background while they're on a meeting, or a live event!
The ability to have either the sound or the banner should be available. I do not understand why you can only have both on or both off. Make these settings independent of each other. When sharing my screen on a video call I do not want chats popping up, but I do want the sound.
I have the exact opposite problem. I want to keep the sound and be able to shut off the visual notifications as they take up too much of my screen.
I have weekly conference calls. My clients call into a bridge that we put on the speaker within my conference room so the client can hear us. When at times we run a video through Teams....I get a lot of feed back. How can I prevent that from happening? Do I need to turn of speaker of mic! So frustrating
This needs to be implemented in Teams for Linux.
When it is implemented, I will need to hear sounds for calls but also to be able to mute message sounds, as requested on other platforms.
