It bothers me as a UX professional because it makes no sense, but it's worse because they're incredibly stupid. I get notifications ALL THE TIME about a meeting that happened yesterday. It's not the boy who cried wolf, it's the "productivity software that has no idea what day it is" (but also cried wolf).

    Hi @41844108

    Thanks for visiting our forum, Microsoft Teams tag is mainly focused on the general issue of Microsoft Teams application troubleshooting.


    If you're using macOS version 10.15 and above, follow the instructions at Use notifications on your Mac.

    Also, regarding the stylistic issue of the notification sound, we recommend you create the feedback in Teams UserVoice. Many features of our current products are designed and upgraded based on customers’ feedback. With requirements like this increase, the problem may well be released in the future.

    Thanks for your understanding and support!
