Change notification sound
Nobody likes it.
Tested on 4 people, everybody wanted to turn it off ASAP.

The alert noise is deafening, especially during work conference calls. Please choose something softer on the ears.

I have some applications on my computer that runs Windows default notification which annoys me and other staff.
I have decided to turn off my windows notification sounds and so far using Slack on my side which was working fine.
we are looking to move over to Mattermost, and now, we found that mattermost is using windows default notification. This won't work.
Please make this feature available as soon as possible, this is highly required for us in order to make Mattermost work in my enviornment.
We will be looking forward to have customized sound settings on mattermost.
Thanks and regards
To update on this: We have a design ticket in progress here https://mattermost.atlassian.net/browse/MM-467.
If anyone has feedback, please feel free to comment on the ticket or the spec linked in the comments.
At least give some choices that are very different sounding so folks can decide themselves. Everyone will have different needs, the only real solution here is providing choice.
This seems to be an old thread but can this be build in to desktop and mobile versions. The current default sounds are awefull!

Here https://docs.mattermost.com/help/getting-started/configuring-notifications.html it says: Configure desktop notification triggers and sounds in Account Settings > Notifications > Desktop Notifications.
But under Account Settings > Notifications I didn't find "Desktop Notifications" on latest Windows version.
On Android 9, it doesn't make any sound neither push notification although access granted and set to show also when online.

It would be nice if you could set custom sounds per room as well
Wow, this an old issue for something that seems like basic functionality. I had to turn it off (on a Mac) because it's too jarring and is easily conflated with system notifications. Now I miss messages.
Does anyone have a workaround?

+1 here for allowing the mobile apps to set a custom sound!
This is my one single complaint in Mattermost. The DING DING DING. Fortunately with the Electron app I can mix it down a little in Windows, but a less annoying chime would be a most welcome addition to an already excellent tool.

I want to keep it on, but I want to have a choice between different sounds. After X time, the sound becomes background noise and is less 'HEY NOTIFICATION' and more 'Did I just hear something?'.
allow IOS (and android) app to select any available sound. This is the only thing preventing our company from moving to matallow IOS (and android) app to select any available sound. This is the only thing preventing our company from moving to mattermost (our owner want to use custom sounds
I'm also on the desktop version and this is a systems sound on Windows. I am unsure if there is a network issue or if I am getting a new message.
This should apply to the desktop version as well. The tri-tone sound is jarring, outdated, and downright awful. I have to choose between being annoyed every time someone sends me a message, or risk not noticing that people are messaging me.
Custom sounds for each mention type and/or channel would be ideal. So that I can tell the difference between a general @channel mention in a group that doesn't require my urgent attention vs. a direct message that would.
Why can't we choose our own sounds like in other apps?
Please apply this to Android as well. Here are my votes.
The notification sound for iOS apps defaults to Tri-tone if the app doesn't specify something else (also, Tri-tone cannot be changed). It would be nice if the iOS app offered a choice of notification sounds, or at least used the greater Mattermost platform's notification sound.
