Temporarily mute meeting chat notifications when you're attending the meeting
When I'm in a meeting with people and have the chat window pulled up alongside the video with participants I still get the desktop notification that someone posted a chat. That notification then blocks their full message and my ability to click on the chat box to respond. If I'm in the meeting why does a notification need to popup at all? The only workaround I've found is to mute the meeting when I'm in it, and then unmute when I'm not. That's way too cumbersome.
