TEAMS: Priority List of speakers?

I have a laptop I use for my job. We use MS Teams for meetings and calls between employees (landline phone for outside calls).

I keep my headset connected to the docking station to make it easier to answer incoming Teams calls. But I only wear the headset during calls and meetings (I take it off immediately after).

Because of this, I never hear notification sounds (new email arrived, incoming Teams call etc).

I found a way to set the laptop speaker as the default speaker and tell Teams to use the headset for it's notifications.

That works somewhat. But it still wants to send notifications about incoming calls to the headset (since it's generated by Teams).

As an additional wrinkle, I work from home 3 days a week and 2 in the office. Each location has a separate headset that I keep connected to a docking station in each location.

When I'm at home, I want Teams to use the home headset. At the office, use the office headset.

Essentially I'm looking for a way to give it a priority list. If Home headset is available, use it. If office headset is available, use it it. Otherwise use the laptop speaker.

Is there a way to accomplish this?

Hi @Don-0631

I am afraid there is no direct ways to complete the speaker priority in Microsoft Teams. It determines your Teams speaker device settings and if you don't want this speaker, you should adjust it manually.
