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.
Hello, I wish for this feature as well.

I am also very surprised that Focus assist doesn't work with Teams. It makes Focus assist useless.
The only valid notification (popup/chat sound) during a meeting or 1:1 Call is the chat of that contact/group of participants. Also ignoring Focus Assist is really something that makes the goal of that Windows Feature that so many people waited for useless. If its a third party app, i would uninstall it and hope for an alternative, but i never expected MS to violate their own rules for an App that is so broadly spread. PLEASE MOVE THIS INTO PRODUCTION! Thanks, everybody.

Please enable this feature as well for when a call is made from teams to a regular phone number. For example using intellinet phone numbers.
This is becoming a serious issue for our staff, the pop-ups during screen sharing is not professional at all. I hope Microsoft can get this released soon - as Do Not Disturb is not always an option.

Seriously, how was this not a day 1 feature? Literally EVERY other virtual meeting platform can and will do this.

Is this still under review? I host a daily conf call and I want to TEams to suppress ANY banner chat pop-ups when I'm in a meeting. Why is this so difficult? Is Do Not Disturb the only way to do it?
Very annoying to get pop-ups of chats in a meeting I'm invited for yet are not attending!
Teams should also honor Windows focus assist settings for sound notifications.
Not sure if this falls under this feature, but getting notifications for chat messages for the meeting I'm actively in & with that meeting's chat open in the sidebar is pretty silly.
In addition, having a mute button next to the close button on the chat popup would be great.
- Close window
- Mute this conversation
- Mute all conversations other than those to do with the call I'm on (1:1 or meeting)
- Mute all
Other Call notification during a call could be a must for some user. That's why, this feature of hidding notification/Do not disturb should be a Teams settings a user could change and not force for all.

Our teachers mirror their desktop to a large display in front of the class and we are doing both remote and on-campus teaching simultaneously so they are in a teams meeting. Having popups from HR or something about a student in a chat is very risky if not just distracting. Please have a setting like Do Not Disturb "During Meetings" as in "During Class"
+1 especially Outlook notifications from parties on a call which can be very loud and intrusive.
Jeanette Turner commented
I would add that if I have the conversation being displayed alongside the video call, I wouldn't need notifications from that call either.
Obey focus assist as well!
It's a nightmare trying to use teams while notifications constantly pop up. It aso covers the bottom right of the screen so I can access certain buttons. Please, please, fix this!!
Seems like a critical oversight that I hope is an easy and quick fix - or at least have it as a configurable setting where you can select the actions of certain status that you wish to set. Microsoft has a chance to become a leader in the in office software again and I hope you take this chance to have a leading messenger/meeting service.

Please dear Microsoft Jesus, implement this.
