How to enable or disable audio notifications on Zoom

Zoom has been a vital part of everyday life for individuals who have had to study or work from home due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The app has a ringing-the-door-bell kind of feature that notifies the user with a very loud ding dong when somebody enters your meeting.

This is helpful for users waiting on a friend to join a meeting, or if they are early for the meeting and are waiting for other people to join. Despite its usefulness, this feature can also be annoying if you are a part of a meeting with ten or more people, you will hear a loud bell-like sound every time someone enters or leaves the meeting.
