Dealing with distractions is a fundamental rule to a successful project. Microsoft Teams is a great way to get distracted. Following these options helps you to minimize message distractions:
  1. Turn on at start-up​ - With the application always on your desktop, there is no reason for alerts to be sent to your email or phone
  2. Disable email alerts - this reduces bloat in your task list
