Settings > Notifications: Notification sounds need to allow more options
“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.
Since many comments below focus on the selection of the "type" of sound (which is another topic), I just would like to emphasize how welcome it would be to split the sound signal between calls and chats/mention!
Pleease change this! Please!
By the way, it's the year 2020 in the meantime, and there are hundreds of votes for this!

Agree with other comments, I would the option to use different sounds/tones as well as volume options. Same options as a cell phone - varied volumes, varied tones and customized for calls/messages as well as users.
Example - I want a group or user tone to be 1 thing if they call or text, but silence others. I alsio want a different tone to my boyfriend who is currently working from home in the same room - so I know if the message is for me or him!
Hope there is an update that will allow this in the near future :-)
Yes! This! *upvote*
I also think the menu setting itself is very hard to find.. it's the third item under "Other"? It deserves its own separate "Sounds" category.

I need sound notification only on calls and nothing else.
Isn't it obvious?

Multiple people in a call with their notifications bleeping away in the background is downright unprofessional. As others have noted, we need more granular options for notifications. This is almost a dumbed down version of SfB without it.
Came here to make this suggestion! Excited to see that it is already here as of April 25, 2019 with 133 votes! Please implement! In the meantime, I will be individually silencing chats.
Yes... now it is Annoy thy neighbors with sounds or miss thy calls by turning all notifications off.. @_@ There is no middle ground.
We need more sounds. And why was it recently changed to a more annoying sound?
We are in dire need for more granular options.
For example switch off chats and mentions and keep sound notifications for calls.
My Teams is beeping nonstop when I have a few private chats open and when I switch the sounds off I miss calls sometimes because there is no sound.
