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 major feature loss moving from Skype for Business to Teams. For those of us who present frequently the only option is turning off all notifications which defeats the purpose!
Adding our request from Texas Children's for this feature as well. Thanks!

Very needed. It is disruptive during a meeting or presentation when chats appear in lower corner, especially if to managers.

This was available (and beloved) in Skype for Business. I'd love to see it in Teams as well. So would our 2,000 users at Farm Credit Canada.
+1 on having this setting
Yes, but I still want to be able to see chats coming on my non-primary screen (the one that isn't presenting).

Currently (version taken from .exe 1.2.00.13765) the available status is automatically changed to DND if you start a video (or audio) conference. Please let the user decide whether this shall happen automatically or not. My proposal ist for instance through an configuration option in the applications settings (but I don't have strong feelings for the UX where to place this option).
+1 on making this configurable. I almost never share the primary screen unless I'm in some sort of troubleshooting session. Instead, I stick the Teams window over there and share a different application or screen with the meeting. In order to have a side chat while presenting (say, to IM a question to a non-attendee, or to respond to questions from others), I need to be in some mode other than Do Not Disturb. Yes, I could add people to my priority-access list, but it's impractical to add everybody, and there are times when I really do want to block notifications.

This may be covered by this request, https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public/suggestions/16941685-use-built-in-notifications-for-macos

This needs to be configurable. It's also really annoying when I miss notifications that I needed to respond to quickly even when I'm in a working session with someone else.
Also a must have(!)
