If you do not want to notified for all the alerts you can even choose from these 3 types of settings that you will find in channel notifications:

  1. All new posts: This will notify you everytime someone starts a new conversation in the channel
  2. Include all replies: This will notify you any time someone replies to a conversation.
  3. Channel mentions: This will notify you whenever someone mentions the channel with @ sign

Note: If you use the "Reset to default" option this will turn on notification for all items and you will be notified for all the activities by a desktop banner notification.
