Disable Notifications in Chat Inquiry


Is there a way to turn off the notifications in the chat when people leave or join the meeting? It is very distracting when we have over 700 people on a call and the chat features shows everyone leaving one by one to join breakout rooms etc.

Hello @KellyG


 Try this, go into your app settings on the Zoom Desktop Client and then click on the chat tab on the left-hand side. I am not 100% sure if this is an in-meeting and out of meeting notification, but you can test it and let me know. If it is only for out of meeting chat, then I would log into your account at and uncheck the sound notifications when someone joins or leaves your meeting.

Please let me know if this works for you.

Hi, I have the same question, and you answered a different question.


The chat now announces in text that people have joined or left the meeting. Turning off the sound alert doesn't affect the text notification. I don't want to turn off notifications in general, but I don't want that list gumming up my chat box. In a large meeting today, it announced each user joining and returning from breakout rooms.


So I want to turn off the specific notification appearing in the chat window that users have joined or left. I could not find a way to do that logged into the Admin panel on the web. Is it possible? If so, how?


I also missing more control over in-meeting notifikations. Im also in some cases use zoom for livestreaming and then want to disable all kind of popup notifikation that activate the Hidden controlpanel.


This is a very frustrating "feature." We'd really love an answer to this as well! It's extremely distracting and not helpful to see that people and joining or leaving large meetings.
