How can we make Microsoft Teams better?

No Chat Notifications When Meeting is Declined in Outlook

1. I get a Teams meeting invite in Outlook.
2. I decline the invite.
3. If someone in that meeting posts in Chat, then I get a notification from a meeting I declined! I have to go to Teams and leave the meeting.

Additional Info: My meeting invite is through a group list.

    Received word that this is going to be worked on and resolved. Declining a meeting will automatically mute the chat.

    Logged a ticket with MS on this issue. Support rep was unsure if this was a feature or a bug and is going to follow up with product team.

    I voted bug.

    Was presented with two workarounds:

    1) Accept the meeting; join the meeting; type something in chat; mute the chat; go back and decline the meeting

    2) Wait for chat to show up for the meeting, then mute it.

    We have actually seen private Microsoft chats because a Microsoft engineer used an internal repeating meeting and invited a couple of us during a support call a few weeks earlier

    I get this all the time and it's an incredibly poor experience. Plus, I ususally have to decline since I'm in another meeting and will suddenly be getting notifications from two meetings at the same time, which is not just distracting, but completely confusing.

    +1. Very poor user experience to continue to receive messages for meetings that are not on the calendar. I can understand continuing to get messages for "tentative" or "accepted" meetings that I was not simply able to attend, but our large meeting chat boxes are now filled with dozens of "X has left the meeting" because they never wanted to be there to begin with.
