      Totally agree! disable the banners and return to the old style with the task bar icon blink...

      Please make this a priority, it's really annoying and distracting.

      In my organization, we attend virtual webinars and courses via SfB and whenever someone IMs the icon activates and blinks.

      This is unnecessary and can be done easily

      Totally agree with the comments here. Have an option to disable all kinds of notification for god sake. It's irritating.

      If you can't remove the pop-up and just make the IMs open immediately, can you make them actually respond to being clicked on instead of freezing Skype for a minute?

      Alert can be blinking icon instead of a pop up! Can't believe this basic option not even available.

      I don't know of any IM platform since around 90s which does not have this feature...

      Not being able to disable the new chat notification pop-up is stupid AF. It's also not surprising considering the current owner of Skype.

      I'd be hard-pressed to ***** at developers though, they most likely do know about this but some suit (or a team of 20+) doesn't want it enabled for some stupid reason.

      Most people i know only use skype because they are forced to (suits like "productivity" apps that are vendor-locked to Windows).

      There are much better alternatives out there.

      Disable all the annoying pop-ups. I just installed, and it is constantly popping up for no apparent reason. Makes me want to unistall it and tell my client I am not using it.

      Oh Skype, Freaking give us option to disable message pop ups ******. Your developers should be ******* losers to not have set an option to ******* disable it.

      Please fix it. They are so disturbing during meetings.

      And who remembers to set the status to "Do not disturb"?
      And then turn it back after the meeeting has ended.

      How is this not a feature. This was standard in the 90's chats. I miss most of my IM's because I don't hit the stupid ACCEPT popup button. Skype is garbage.

      "Sign in with your organization account" message pops up every 5 (or less) minutes (which is annoying). I am already signed in and everything is working fine but the message never stops. How to disable it?

      These notifications really do make me want to logout of and stop using Skype. Why do Microsoft destroy everything they touch? I'm currently afraid for Github!

    • Patrick Moody commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

      I could not possibly care less that my colleagues have signed in. If I did care, I'd deliberately open up the user interface to check. I was astonished not to be able to find a way to switch off this irritation without signing out of the tool and quitting it altogether, which is what I have now done. I'll use other, less intrusive, tools to keep in touch with my colleagues until I learn that this has been fixed.

      I'm not a business please take off Skype from my software (Microsoft) PLEASE! It is wasting my time and it is getting me upset that I may change to another software.
