My Company uses Google Chat(G Suite) as an IM client.
I'm having trouble and don't want to receive chat notifications from a specific person.
So I referred to the official help. However, it seems that I can't change the notification settings until I open a chat with the person.
- Go to Hangouts at hangouts.google.com or in Gmail.
- Click a contact or conversation.
- Click Settings.
- Untick Notifications.
As you know, Google Chat has "Read receipts". Once I open a chat, the opening notification will be shared with the person.
I am in a position to refuse any contact with the person, so I don't even want to know what I've read.
I just want to avoid opening chats and getting notifications from him, but is there any way?
