Turning off sound notifications in office 365

Hi, how do I turn off the sound notifications when using outlook through office 365? In settings it says Notification settings aren't available right now.

I want to keep my email open when I'm on Teams and Zoom calls, but the sound is so loud it's off putting.

If anyone could help it would be much appreciated.

Many thanks

Hello Cakey_LC,

To turn off notification sound in Outlook for Mac, you can do that by following the steps below:

1.  On the Outlook menu, click Preferences.
2.  Under Personal Settings, click Notifications & Sounds.
3.  Under Message arrival, choose the settings that you want for new messages.
4.  Under Sounds, clear the check box next to each sound that you want to turn off.

If you need more help, please feel free to let me know.

Regards,

Seven

I had a tough time with this too, especially since i think some recent update modified this (May/June 2020). To turn off the sounds in MS 365 products (say PowerPoint; I'm on a Mac):

Click on Powerpoint (or the name of the Application, in bold, top L of screen)

Click "Preferences"

Click "General" (top left of window)

Under "Settings" unclick "Provide Feedback with Sound"
