Allow muting of all notifications quickly. There are times when I present or want no distractions!
There is already a button for this in windows 10 - focus assist. Teams should obey that button like all the other office apps already do.

Yes please. Muting notifications in a meeting would be extremly helpful

For those with sensory issues, switching to Teams for Education and remote learning is hugely stressful. Children like replying to lesson topics and they like reacting to each others posts. Hugely distracting. Enormously distracting. The stuff of meltdowns.
Please please please provide a way to make sure that there are no popups or extraneous noises whatsoever during a meeting.
Best thing might be a "distraction free" toggle and make it available in many modes in the app.
Should really have been a default option. I'm for muting the sound of course (but I have already done that permanently) and above all, deactivating all banners during meetings and calls, including the notifications of the chat of the current meeting or call. Please can you add a parameter "Deactivate all banners and mute sounds during meetings or calls" to check or not?
Currently, there are two ways to do this, which both have their flaws:
- deactivate all banners (and sounds) all the time
- manually actually the DND mode when calling or meeting, and it's really a pain that it has to be manual. When starting a meeting or receiving/giving a call, I often don't have time to think about it.
I don't want any chat/notifications or calls coming in when I'm in a meeting. Would be great to have a setting for this, other than changing my status.

I see where someone suggested "Do No Disturb" however in this mode, do you still see the chats and get notifications? I just don't want to hear the chime anytime someone comments.
I don't want any chat notifications/dings other than for the teams icon to glow. The notifications are really distracting and most of the time have nothing to do with me.
Hi So this is already a thing just go to your avatar and press your status and click ¨Do Not Disturb¨ and you wont get notifactions! thanks byeee
Is this available yet? I saw another similar request and it said it was completed. However, I dont see the option.

I'm getting joke messages while on Teams meetings.
