"Users will be able to mute notifications during meetings thereby helping focus during meetings. A user can choose to mute notifications for all meetings or per meeting basis," Microsoft said.
The change was added to the slate on November 1 and last updated at the end of December.
In the original message to Microsoft 365 users, the company said the "current experience of receiving notifications during meetings is highly distracting and there is no easy way to turn off these notifications making it highly painful for users."
By February, users will be able to go into Global Settings and turn off notifications by clicking on the ellipsis next to the profile picture.
Microsoft is also adding a way to do this though the uBar, allowing users to turn off notifications on a per meeting basis.
