I want a separate option for sound notifications for calls and messages
I want a separate option for sound notifications for calls and messages. The current "Notification sound" includes "Call, mention, chat" as one option.
We can't all be in the office with sound on for all our notifications! it will be unbearable.

It's so stressful to have to deal with the constant ding-ing from IMs.
But if I turn notification sounds off entirely, I'd lose calls.
This is really a MUST.
--- Does anyone from @Microsoft Teams look at these posts ?
Users shall be getting 1000's of messages in "chat" and we do not want popup and sound for them.
But we do need popup and sound for "calls".
There needs to be some option to have separate settings for each of these.
Messages (chats) causes lot of disturbance and I had to bear it in absence of this separate settings because we cannot afford to miss a call.
I second that. I am really missing this important distinction.
This is so important! I don't need a sound every time someone sends a channel message or a chat to me, but I do need a sound every time I get a call! So frustrated with the inability to set independent sound notifications - this is very poor design Microsoft!
There is nothing more disturbing than being in a call, and having 'ding, ding' every message while listening or talking. A simple option to allow for separately manage sound notifications and sound for calls. Or even to mute message notifications during calls would help.
Yes I would love to be able to get sound notifications for calls or identified VIPs but be able to turn off sounds for other chat messages. Currently it's an all or nothing which is extremely disruptive to the day.
Any update on this? I'd like to get sound notification for CALLS but none for messages.
I also want a separate option for sound notifications for calls and messages. I am bombarded enough as it is. If something is really important, I get a phone call. I rank chat messages as less important in terms of prioritizing my work.
I also want this - i want to switch off notification noises for chat and messages so that they don't constantly BINGBINGBING while i'm on calls, but you really need to be able to leave call sounds on so that you realise an incoming call is ... incoming.
Audio notification settings are all or nothing - this needs to be more granular.
Keep up the good work Teams people!
