Pleas add the option to change notification sounds. When a notification sounds i dont know if its on my laptop or my wife's laptop

Add option to set up a different sound notification for a specific conversation so it is different from every other conversation happening. Some chats are more important that others and need immediate attention.

My 1990's cell phone allowed me to change the ringtone. Not having this option for an application that is designed to be used in an office or any other workspace among multiple people is asinine.

Please please fix this ASAP. This should have been an option prior to production. My notification sound is the same as every other unimportant notification on my Samsung S9+

Considering the Work from home culture which would stay for a long now due to this COVID situation over the world and offices so not tend to open soon, we are to spend most of the times on the Teams call making our conversations, it is simply annoying and frustrating to hear the same loud disgusting default sound over and over again.
Please help us with few sober sounds and ability to change.
Yes, please! Same exact problem-- my spouse and I both go running to our computers if either one of us gets a message. Would be nice to know right off the bat which is which.
You absolutely can not hear the notifications. I end up missing the notifications because I cant hear them. It needs to be loud and clear

Besides a custom sound (the default noise is godawful), the ability to adjust the volume of the notification independently of other parts of the application would be helpful, too. Everytime I am on a teams call, I end up with a barrage of distracting "blonks" that come from different people. I end up having to mute all of the conversations as they come in and then I sometimes forget to unmute them afterwards, missing messages. A way to customize the noise and set the notification volume independent of the video call volume would be very helpful

I would at least like to have the choice of a few pre-packaged sounds for chat/mention notifications, like most of Teams' competitors already do, and have been doing for quite some time, now.
The one and only sound available now doesn't always get my attention — especially in this new COVID-19-dominated landscape, where I'm working from home as my wife also is while having two young children who are also creating additional noise (metaphorically and literally) — and being able to at least designate a custom sound as an alternative to the default/only sound would be far superior to the current experience.

We're dealing with COVID-19 and multiple people are working from home at our house. I'm trying to take a break from work but I keep running back to my PC because I keep hearing Teams go off. But it turns out that my wife's co-workers are having an animated chat and the message tone I'm hearing is coming from her computer, not mine.
The easy solution would be to allow me to assign a custom sound to Teams as a global setting. Though it would also be GREAT if I could override the global setting and set a custom sound for individual channels or even individuals (like my boss).

...and apart from that, the default sound for Teams is really annoying!
Having a built-in set of sounds that we could choose from for different events (call, message, etc.), would be great, and it would also be nice if we could configure custom sounds. This would be similar to how phones allow users to set up a custom ringtone.
Even better would be the ability to configure custom notification sounds for VIP callers.
