Skype - no alert sounds for people coming online please.

When people are coming online in Skype I am hearing an audible alert and it's driving me nuts. Is there a way to
turn that off?

Not sure all Skype's are created equal so I'm not sure if you can see what other see but here is a video that shows you can control what events play sounds at the event level:

It is under Skype->Profile->Change Sounds

That must be from an earlier version. My left most menu item is File and there's no Profile. There is a Tools/Options  that has a lot of settable items. But nothing I see allows me to disable sound notifications when people become available.

I found it here. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YRP1VmX6B3g

You just have to untag the person. I'm new at this company and the company tagged
everybody by default. So I get inundated in the morning with bong bong bong - Sue's
available! Bob's available! OMG - who came up with that. :-)

Thanks for posting the video even if it was date. It inspired me to search a couple of ways on youtube myself
