Turning off Team Chat or Team Chat notifications


I can't stand Team Chat.Ideally, I'd be able to disable Team Chat entirely—my team and I have absolutely no use for it, and I've gone as far as requesting nobody comment during meetings in the in-meeting chat to avoid further notifications.


At the very least, I want to at least turn off the red notification bubble on the dock icon—I have enough already that are actually important, and having 99+ notifications on the Zoom icon is really not helpful.


The only solution I've found is signing out entirely, which is annoying due to the NEW "You are chatting as a guest" notification which blocks the first messages in the in-meeting chat. (attached)


Would love a solution to this—I am frustrated beyond belief by this new "feature". Please stop fixing things that are not broken.

Try turning off notifications and/or muting channels.  




IF I could FIND it, I surely would turn it off! 

Stupid huge red square pops up making the chat I am already IN unreadable until I go to the other chat (which generated it) to make it go away.  (Desktop client - Win OS).

On the other hand why is this a ALL OR NOTHING proposition?

@MizKat I can try to help you, but I am not totally clear on your end goals.
In my screenshot above, you can configure those settings for each chat or channel, by clicking on the 3 dots next to the chat or channel in the left hand rail.  Then choose Notifications to configure them or mute them.
You can also access those notifications by clicking on your profile picture and then settings, then choose the Team Chat tab.

If you need more options please describe your ideal solution with a little more detail and I am happy to help.
