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.

this is desperately needed.
This already happens in Teams when you present / share desktop - automatically. Just tested. But it is not a option you can control in settings.

I've been using Teams for about two months and it's proven very useful, but this is such an oversight. I don't remember to manually enable DND every time I join a meeting and the fact that I still receive notifications during those meetings is a big risk.
Surprised that this was raised in 2018 and still hasn't been actioned.

In a Teams meeting to today when I received a Teams call. I tried to 'hang up' and accidentally answered it. Very annoying. Auto DND is definitely needed.
Ideally this should occur when presenting in Webex, GoToMeeting, Zoom, Blue Jeans, etc.
Like others have said, in order to block notifications during a call/video meeting/presentation, I have to change my status DND manually. This is a problem because it's easy to forget to manually change it back to available. There needs to be a way to change the default status for meetings. I'd love to be able to change the default so Teams automatically puts me in DND when I'm in a scheduled meeting Or the ability to set the default for meetings to any of the status options. Currently it just defaults to Busy, which is hardly helpful.
This is very anoying :-) At least people could be warned when they try calling/writing someone who is allready in a meeting. If I have to manually set the DND, then I just forget to turn it back.
So is this something new and can it be disabled because mine seems to be set all of the time for some reason and I can't even share my screen any more.
Is there a fix for this or maybe a work around. i'm new to Microsoft Teams

How can this not already be implemented? It's standard in Cisco Jabber.

Skype should also go on DND mode as soon as we start sharing screen in Teams & vice-versa
Ted Hobson commented
Yes! Notifications during presentations are not helpful and could violate confidentiality for State officials.
The lack of DND on Microsoft Teams is a large issue. It seems it should be easily resolved because Skype already has that functionality.
Karsten Bode commented
we need this feature too. it is very annoying during presentations or already conducted IP telephony that others call come in and(or other information pops up
YES! This is definitely a feature that needs to be added to Teams! When presenting (or viewing someone else's presentation), the chats shouldn't pop up, in case it's private to the recipient or not yet ready to be shared with a larger group. I honestly can't believe this hasn't been addressed in a year and a half and that Microsoft doesn't feel it's a priority or a concern.

Truly necessary! I was presenting and notifications kept pooping up
If Skype will be depreciated and Teams is its replacement, this needs to be standard functionality.
Please get this done. Until then likely will not remain logged into teams at all times as there is a chance I'll forget to log out before a meeting.
very poor design....par for the course in microsoft world.....this request was made in AUGUST OF LAST YEAR......
get it together

I got burned by a sensitive message notification popping up (content and all) when I was presenting to my full team last week. Salary info for a new hire is now public knowledge. Not good. Coming off Skype, I just assumed all modern communications apps handled this automatically. Not only does MS Teams not do this by default (which it should), you can't even set it to do it at all! (I'm talking about automatic message suppression when presenting, not manually enabling DND mode.) If Outlook can do it, why can't MS Teams? C'mon now.

Seems like something that should have been there from the beginning. Please address.
