Separate Notification Sounds Settings for Calls and Chats
“Notification sounds = Off” will disable all sound notifications, including disabling the Call notifications. What I’d like to do is to disable Mention and Chat notification sounds for example, but keep Call notification sounds. This can't be done at the moment as only 3 options are available:
Call, mention and chat
We would need additional options to cover all use cases.

This is completely bonkers. My organization just finally migrated from a mixed Teams and Skype for Business setup to Teams only. Before I hardly got calls via Teams and always shrugged it off, but of course I have notifications for mentions etc. off... I had no idea this would also completely disable calling notification sounds (yeah, it says so, but...srsly?).
This needs a fix, at LEAST a split between calls and everything else, but better for calls/mentions/added to team/chat message/...

It would be greatly beneficial to have the feature to notification sounds for chats & calls on both speakers and headset and still be able to take call on headset.

It is crazy that this is not already a thing. I miss nearly every call I get because I cannot stand audio notifications for everything else
I second that. I am really missing this important distinction.
Ben Klaus commented
+1 on this obvious experience improvement!
Same comment as all others. Calls require audio notification for immediate attention while other messages can be silent for later attention. I wouldn't think separating these would be a huge lift.
This is must needed feature but there is not update from MS Teams development team. Is this feature considered or not?
Tom Harren commented
Calls are not the same as general notifications. General notifications can wait, calls need immediate attention. C'mon
would even be better to mute certain chats or even temporarily.
This is a no brainier and it's absolutely incredible how primitive Microsoft's instincts are in this area. Call sound setting should have been separate from all other sound settings the day Teams was officially rolled out years ago now. A voice over IP situation has to have its own priority option at every level of protocol, from network to user interface. The company must have fired all of its old "Microsoft phone" developers and gotten out of touch.

Was wondering why my calls never rung and then I realised that I had turned off the sound by turning off notification sounds. Very counterintuitive as well as silly, there should definitely be a split between these two so I can hear my phone calls but not get plonged every time someone sends me a message.
Martin Egger commented
that'd be a great feature to have. for now i have to keep it muted as all the sounds for messages are annoying.
How do we merge this other vote into this one to combine support for this enhancement?
Sound notifications for when participants join and/or leave a meeting should be individual user settings. hearing bleep bleep bleep while trying to listen to the meeting is disturbing the meeting flow , and we can miss content.
David Schrag commented
Now that we are using Teams for external (PSTN) calling, everyone in the company wants this.
À ajouter rapidement.
Agreed - I don't need sounds for every message I get through the day, but I do need a sound for calls.
We desperately need this.
How about having disabling sound for just the chat notifications rather than another else. IT IS A HORRIBLE SOUND. Please fix it!!! Skype sound is so much better.
