I work at a rather large organization and we just switched to using Microsoft Teams. So far it has been great but what is driving me nuts is the Notification for new messages. I can't find it anywhere to turn this annoying sound off. When you have several coworkers all messaging you, I can't even wear headphones anymore it's gotten so bad.
And you can't even turn it off? My options are, "Call, Mention, and Chat" , "All", "Off"
How is these not separated? I would like it to be able to ring for calls but I don't need a BEEP every time someone messages me since I already get a banner and a flashing name.
Please let me know if I am missing a setting somewhere.

@DVipe Same- we would love these to be further separated so we can hear new calls/meetings coming through but no "ding" for every chat and @mention. Would be so nice to find an option for this!

@Katrin Weixel I concur. Especially with the new home working initiatives, the incessant beeping forced me to switch notification sounds off, but I then missed a couple of calls and was late for a meeting.
We need full granularity of notification sounds please MS.

@EricaMG this too was driving me nuts, I went into notifications and changed 'chat messages' from 'banner' to off.
This resolved my issue, I don't need to see every time there is a chat message, but if I'm mentioned or called it still alerts me.
I would prefer to keep the banner notification and simply eliminate the sound.

I think this could be a very easy fix on the Microsoft side.
Instead of having a drop list of only a fixed set of options, just give us the option of check boxes to select which notifications we want On/Off. It's that simple!
It seems rather silly to have the options of ALL notifications or NO notifications be your only options.
I want to be able to hear the call notification, which is the ringer.. but not hear a notification for every message that comes through.
This is especially annoying when you are in a meeting or doing something else and Teams will deafen the call I am on to play me a message notification. It doesn't make sense.

I do agree. Microsoft Team developers @ThereseSolimeno please make it possible: No sound, except when being called.
