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 a must have, I agree. Messages should be blocked when in a meeting, simple as that. Extra credit if the feature can allow only messages from people in that meeting.

This would greatly improve every meeting at our company, please implement this!
This would be GREAT. Just automatically suppress chat notifications when presenting - make it a "no think" feature and it just works.

I cannot stress enough how important this feature is. When people convert from Skype, where the DND feature has worked that way for years, there will be mistakes made that cannot be undone. It will be horrible and unprofessional it will reflect badly on Teams because no one would expect that you did not carry that functionality forward. NO ONE. Do not fix what isn't broken.
While projecting status of the user should be changed to DND with message that "User is projecting". It was present in skype for business. Sometime it is awkward that all messages are getting pop up above the previous text which should not be visible to the participants which are looking on the screen.
Also instead of showing the unread messages/ chats one above other it should just popup first message. If a person is sitting beside you can read all the private chats unnecessary.
This seems almost like a no brainer!! Syke had it.
I'm shocked there's not more votes for this? We just cut over from Skype and everyone is complaining that they still get notifications during presenting and scheduled meetings!
hi! is there any update on this feature, as of November 2019?
People in company need to have DND feature. Please implement it.
Yes need this feature! I present often in front of peers and executives. If I forget to either hard close Teams or set status to DND, I get IM pop ups when presenting in meetings which is distracting and unprofessional. Skype had this option, which really gave peace of mind since it was automatic. Now with Teams I have this one more thing to remember to do before every meeting.

Very inconvenient and also thought stopping and we don't need anything more to interrupt good brainstorming sessions or training.
I agree, there is a need to have this feature in MS Teams
Is there any chance that this has been included? It's frustrating that you have to manually /dnd when you happen to pick up presenting in a meeting rather than having it automatically set.
As a teacher, I really would like Teams to automatically recognize when I was connected to a projector and block the pop up messages. There is sometimes sensitive info that is not for everyone's eyes.

why would you not have this feature if you have it in skype?
It's 2019 and we still need to request this as a 'UserVoice' feature?
(as usual the explanation is likely to be - It's Microsoft)

This is still a huge complaint among my co-workers as I try to move them from Skype to Teams. They say Teams is great, but I screen share while in meetings so often, it causes irritation as soon as that first message pop up occurs.
I have been presenting via Teams when an auto update for Teams has been pushed out. This is unacceptable as the presenter sharing content and being kicked out of the meeting to then have to restart Teams and screens being shared. If Presenting or in DND mode Teams should hold the update until after status changes and also a notification would be nice so that it isn't unexpected and you can allow/deny/or pause for a period of time.

Glaring loss in functionality.
