Automatic DND when presenting
Automatically set status to Do Not Disturb/DND when presenting or sharing screen like on Skype. It's very inconvenient when banners for personal chat notifications come up during meetings, sometimes the content is not to be shared with others. If not that then allow for the option to not show actual text in the banner notifications.
Status is automatically set to Presenting in Teams when screen sharing is started during a Teams meeting.

Actually it would be better not not just set Team's DND mode, but the OS's DND mode!
An absolute must have. Actually it's deal breaker.
Yes this was a great feature in Skype...please bring it to teams!!!
Absolutely agree. There needs to be some tie up and consistency here. Expecially where there are other apps such as Webex or Skype on a system. I've repeatedly had this issue between Teams and Skype and it's getting annoying. Thankfully Skype is on it's way out, but the same issue is now cropping up when I'm using Webex.
Even if there was a way of allowing App developers to tie in to the focus assist feature? That way any app that's in use as a presentation tool or where the user sets DND in that app, it then interacts with Focus assist which becomes the main DND "provider"? Just an idea but this needs some sort of priority. Used to work fine with Skype alone but in this "new normal" it's an ever increasing issue.
The current behavior is not safe. Confidential information can be leaked.
Privacy first Microsoft. Privacy first.

This is one of the features my users request the most. And unfortunately, focus assist is my only answer. A conditional "build your own/ITTT" notification area would solve this and many more feature requests.
Looks very unprofessional to have private chat previews popping up during screen shares as well.
When presenting using WebEx, Teams, Skype or other screen sharing software it must change the Teams status to DND. Or give the ability to not display Team message content. I absolutely need this feature.

Absolutely agree. As a user commuting from skype to teams I already have to deal with parallel calls coming from the two channels, I would expect AT LEAST the DND when presenting feature
When presenting using Zoom, Teams, Skype or other screen sharing software it would be great if it would change the Teams status to DND. Or give the ability to not display Team message content.
When presenting or sharing screen on zoom, would be good to be DND automatically because it seems that everyone likes to send me messages when im sharing my screen. Thank you :)
It is quite annoying getting calls while being already on a call....seriously!

Would like to add a nighttime schedule for DND, like 10 PM to 5 AM every day it goes to DND. I need some sleep!

Please add this! I don't like chats popping up when I'm sharing my screen to present at work.

Please add Auto DND while screen sharing and presenting. Also the DND should send an email to the person and not a message.

I agree please add the option for automatic DND when presenting or connect an external monitor is connected just like it did in Skype.
DND automatically turn on when on calls/presenting, and automatically turn off once call is over
Auto DND is a must while presenting the screen.

Yes, I agree. Having to set DND manually is lame. If I'm in a call I don't want to receive other incoming calls. If I leave and see this in my activities, this would be okay. Same with incoming personal chats while presenting to senior management... Please enable auto DND!
