Automatic Mute Notifications When On Video or Audio Call
Automatically mute all Teams notifications when on a video or audio conference call. Mute all notifications that are outside the conference call itself.
Thank you for your feedback. The team is looking into this feature and considering possible solutions. We will share an update as soon as one is available.
100% agree! Was on a meeting where you could see all the IMs the presenter was receiving as he had to share his screen (showing multiple applications). It was embarrassing.
It's a nuisance during meetings and horribly distracting as a facilitator.

Please please please?
Please make this a higher priority. PLEASE. I'm desperate.
Completely agree with this-Please make this a priority. The constant pop-ups and dinging - even with the meeting chat window open - are really distracting from the presenter and the topic, and are frustrating.
Also need a way to mute the Popups from the Current Meeting. I will look at the Chat Pane if I want to see the Chats in the meeting and don't need the constant binging every time someone posts to the meeting. When you have hundreds on a call, all you hear is BING!

Same as other comments here, we use Teams internally, but customers use Zoom, or other platforms for meetings so it would be great for this to tie in to Outlook or the other platforms.
I love working in Teams, but often customers setup meetings with Zoom, WebEx, Go to Meeting, etc. It would be great if our Teams Status could be set to Do No Disturb or similar to what happens when we are presenting in teams so messages are not appearing when we are showing our screens in one of these other apps.
@Thomas Collins: You're absolutely right. When presenting I want to have no notifications at all. So therefore I would appreciate to have the possibility to configure for each state (e.g. presenting, in a meeting, in a call, in a conference call, whatever you might invent,...) if notifications are to be shown or not.

I'm glad that the "Presenting" mode will now work when screen sharing in Teams (https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public/suggestions/35261014) but it should be noted that that wasn't entirely the intent of what many were looking for.
I would like the option to set myself to DND or something similar when I'm in an active call or meeting as 1) I do not want the notifications to be going off while my microphone is on, even when I'm just a participant (not presenting) and 2) I do not want to be distracted by the notifications when I'm trying to concentrate on the meeting at hand.
You should be able to configure in settings whether "In A Call" mutes notifications or not and act like DND currently works.

at least make it configurable for the end-user

I would appreciate such a feature. Sometimes I may be leading a meeting without sharing my screen and thus notifications are still popping up that distract me from the conversation at hand.

This is a key issue for me, especially where chat notifications are popping up while the chat window is open. As a result, I cannot actually see the chat itself. There is no need for a popup notification for anything in the current call. Even worse, the notifications stack up to the top of the screen, sometimes even with a scroll bar and they take a long time to go away unless I manually close everyone of them.
It would be really good to see this addressed soon as it makes taking part in Teams meetings effectively really challenging.

This is now the number one issue for me in Teams. We have embraced teams so much but while in a meeting the chat goes off 4-5 a minutes its so annoying. Also what doesn't help is the volume for the teams notification cannot be changed from the volume of the meeting. If you put yourself into do not disturb I often forget to turn this off when the meeting if over.
If you are presenting your screen do not disturb comes on automatically. Just wish this was for any meeting.
TEAMS should offer options to mute all system notifications. It's annoying having to mute each chat/channel one at a time.
Mute all notifications not related to call and all notifications from chat when chat is open
Ideally I would want:
- all notifications not related to call should be muted
- notification related to the call should be muted when meeting chat is displayed!
(otherwise I am often not able to enter chat notices)!
Providing an override to automatic behavior is certainly always a awesome idea.

@Victoria - an option in the settings maybe, but when set I'd like Teams to stay silent while in a meeting (it already get's that I'm in a meeting via the calendar)
