Add Notifications Setting (All/Mentions/Off) to Main Webex Teams UI

Add a control for the space notifications setting in Webex Teams Options -> Notifications (All/Mentions/Off) to the main Teams window (at least on Windows).

It's helpful to change this setting from All to Mentions when wanting to reduce distractions. Although the use case is similar to when Do not Disturb might be used, it's not quite the same.

DnD sets a status, the notifications setting does not.

DnD disables all chat notifications (I think?), while setting notifications to Mentions only disables only notifications of chats not directed specifically at you.

Elevating this control to the main UI would:

  • Make the setting easier to use, requiring one click instead of five

  • Clearly indicate the current setting so the user is less likely to forget to change it back

Quick and dirty mockup of one possible implementation attached.
