Different notification sounds for different apps

In the Windows Mobile version, you can assign completely different sounds to different apps. I would like that be made for the PC version. I can tell what notification would be by the sound. For my phone, I have different sounds for different types of things. For example, "You have an appointment." for the calendar. For mail, "New mail" and for Maintenance and Security, an alarm sound.

    We’ll send you updates on this idea

    Hello,

    This sis a very interesting idea you’ve proposed. In Windows some apps let you customize alerts for some of their functions, but not all becuase it’s dependant on registry entries.

    I’ll go ahead and forward this to the product manager for further review and get back to you with any further updates.

    Thanks again for reaching out to us; and in the future, if there’s anything else we can do for you, please let us know.

    Sincerely,

    The Microsoft Disability Answer Desk team.

        Totally Absolutely Agree This needs to be done MS is behind most Os's here , Having different Notification Sounds tells the user if the Notification is important, generalized , Something has Finished / Started ect

        I was just looking for this option today, and would like to express desire for more flexibility in this. I see that I can change my sound for email, and for incoming IM from Skype, etc, by choosing from the list in Sounds, but it would be even nicer if you could get at them from the Notifications settings panel, where you can enable or disable sounds.
