    I am referring to the action sounds in your screen shot. I would like to have them on, i.e. the boxes checked for meeting joins and leaves. What I would like to see is some type of a button or option while in a meeting to turn these join and leave sounds off while in the meeting. It can be a toggle that enables those sounds or disables them without having to go into settings, or even better a "mute notifications" button in a meeting that mutes them for that meeting only and goes back to the default settings once a meeting is over. The notifications are great, but where there is a 100+ person meeting and people join late or leave early, they are a distraction. To me this is a common sense thing that other meeting, chat, and broadcast apps have had for years.

    @Peter - Can you be more specific what meeting notifications you are referring to and what is not available within the Meetings notification settings that you are trying to turn off?

    Still missing the quick and easy in meeting switch to turn notifications on and off. Notifications are GREAT for small meetings, or if you join early, but need to be easily turned off for large meetings or Webinars. This should not take months to implement.

    Good news! We've introduced eight new sounds in addition to our classics, giving you more options. These new sounds are available for your desktop client only

    Here's how

    On desktop clients with 42.10+, you can customize your messaging notification settings from your settings menu on Windows OS or preferences menu on Mac OS.

    And based on your feedback, Joe, we are considering custom sounds options.

    Does it take a year + to implement?

    I agree. This would be a welcome change as the current notification sounds are a bit ear piercing to me personally.

    why wasn't this a feature at first place? Do you really need votes to make this feature. I mean it so obvious this is needed right

    Users have also stated that they could add their own sounds in Jabber and would like to be able to do that with Webex.
