Teams notifications leaves a lot to be desired. It seems the only way to get any sound notifications is to also have banners enabled. I for one do not like banners, 1. It can fill up your screen if spammed. 2. It also shows context of the message (to me this is a privacy issue).

 

Am I missing something?

 

Features that I am looking for:

Sounds for all types (channel, chat. etc) without any other type of notification

Be able to turn off per type. Example, have channel sound off, but chat sound on.

 

Setting for "Notification Sounds": All

This only works if banner is set for something like chat messages, or channel.

@JoeVinette Doesn't seem like MSFT cares, They've had a uservoice ticket about this with thousands of requests and they've done nothing with it for almost 3 years. They're more concerned with Zoom eating their lunch than making their "lunch" usable. Such a shame when we could be using Slack or Discord instead which doesn't have these issues.

Just realize that you're shouting into the void on this one.
