Disable pop-up notifications
Allow users to disable desktop pop-up notifications at all times rather than only when status is set to do not disturb.

Have a setting to completely disable IM pop up, minimize pop up to task bar, notify WITHOUT showing the IM message without having to be in Do not disturb. This used to be here in previous versions of Skype for Business but now flexibility is worse with Office 365 version
Every newsletter, magazine, newsfeed is full of blogs and articles about burnouts, concentration issues, mental health issues and anxiety because of digital world.
And then there are PERMANENTLY minimum 3 blink pop-ups on my screen in angle of view every day, 8-10hours.
I would like to work without feeling, that someone still stand behind my back and wants "only minute"
I WANT PRIVACY!! SHUT DOWN THE POP-UPS!!!
The pop up serves no purpose except to cause my computer to become unresponsive for 5-10 seconds. By the time I can use the computer again, the pop up has disappeared anyway so I can't click on "Reply". Lenovo T470...not a super computer but no slouch either.

2900 votes, 3 and half years later still no response. Microsoft
Really annoying, we can't have private convos if someone checks our screen, also I don't want a popup each time I get a message
It should be a built in feature!
J'avoue sa rend dingue, tout le monde peut voir les pop up quand on clash nos collègues
I can't believe this is not fixed yet!! everyone can see your notifications and private messages if they come up into the screen
IS THIS A JOKE ???
Guys, it's incredible, someone is looking my screen and I cannot set some contacts not to be shown on screen !!!! COME ON are you kidding us???
Totally agree! disable the banners and return to the old style with the task bar icon blink...

+1. Add a button to block ALL notifications...

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.
Please add a feature like that!
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.
