          How is it even possible that such simple feature is not yet there? It's really frustrating.

          this piece of c..p annoyed me so much I uninstalled Skype.

          The result: it keeps popping up anyhow!!!!!!!!!!!!

          Things like this give programmes - and companies - a very bad reputation!!!

          How many people have to comment (meaning many more did not comment) and for how long does this issue need to keep lingering? Please allow us to disable notifications on our own terms.

          NOT professional when you're in work-/mtgs & messages popping-up !!! Please allow disabling as an option !!! (ref. outlook mail envelope notification settings) Better to foresee an indication / alert on the main button in the taskbar when messages coming in.

          Right click the user and uncheck the "tag for status change alert" this will no longer show the pop up

          How this pops is anything but annoying is beyond me. Skype has ticked me off so much with the annoying pop off that will not shut off that I have uninstalled Skype from my laptop and suggest other meeting platforms to clients - ones that don't keep popping up and asking you to log in.

          Please please allow this to be turned off. No one likes pop ups. I dont care what any control group says.

          How come nobody from Microsoft is fixing this issue? It is super annoying that we cannot disable these pop-up messages. When you are working on confidential projects, it is really not ideal and I cannot assign the 'do not disturb' status at all times.

          Popups with unprofessional messages from colleagues frequently become embarrassing moments when I'm projecting my screen in an important meeting.
