      Quite ridiculous to over-ride user preferences and make a pointless sound.
      Is MS doing this deliberately to annoy its customers?
      I don't know of any other application that does this.

      Please add a control to mute this incredibly annoying sound. I have my entire laptop muted for working in a professional office environment. The lack of a mute feature completely negates that, and disturbs others. Thank you.

      Not only can you not turn off the sound; if you have muted macOS audio before starting Skype for Business, Skype will unmute your audio settings to about 20% just to make sure you hear this infernal sound. Stop adjusting my audio settings for me! I didn't ask you to do that!

      If all other sounds are muted or going through a headset, so should this! It's a pointless sound and should not play through my external speakers if nothing else is. There should be an option to turn it off!

      This is some stupid ****. Skype for Business Mac is the worst app I've ever used. I hope the developers hate themselves as much as I hate this app.

      It's like you're forcing us to advertise for your product every time we start the application. We're paying customers. Remove this sound altogether and find another way to market your app before we just give up and switch to another product.

      Yes, please disable this! Not only is the sound pointless and annoying, but it has no place in a "business" app.

      Please, please turn this off...or at least let me choose to turn it off. I still want notification sounds or I'd block all sound for the app.

      Please allow Mac users to turn off the Skype start-up sound. It has no use, disturbs others, and is distracting during meetings.

      Please make this stop. I like the functionality of the product, but there are other products with similar features that do not have the embarrassing log-in sound.

      Y'all screwed up with this one. It's not only annoying, it sometimes really startles me. So fun to start a business meeting with that wide-eyed, am-I-going-to-die look. My clients love that.

      Hello
      Skype for business has a very annoying feature, apparently not possible to turn off.
      The Login sound. It is beyond annoying. Please let us users have the possibility to turn this hurtful feature off.
      Please Do Not be arrogant to your users. Rethink.

      I REALLY REALLY need to be able to turn off the start up sound on Mac OS X. I am in an office with two other people and the sound plays every time I lock and then unlock my screen. It is very distracting to my office mates. This is also a very old behavior for an application.

      Please make it so the startup sound can be turned off, makes me sound like a 12 year old in my open office.

      PLEASE LET US DISABLE THE STARTUP SOUND. THIS IS NOT FEASIBLE IN OUR WORK ENVIRONMENT WITH CUBICLES AND WE WANT TO USE SKYPE MORE. THE RESULT IS WE END UP USING SKYPE LESS.

    • Tighe Kuykendall commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

      Why would you release this without the ability to disable the startup sound? Please provide a setting so it can be disabled.

      PLEASE - give an option for turning off the login sound. It's like a software version of flying with RyanAir. WHO signed this off as a feature requirement in the first place!!!???

    • Nick Iannotti commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

      Please give us the option to turn off startup and shutdown sounds. This seems like a no-brainer. My open-seated office and I thank you for your consideration!
