Global toggle for bell silence

Usually, I like my noisy terminal bell and at my desk or at home I can enjoy it at whatever volume I like, but sometimes I find myself in a situation where I need it to be quiet --in a meeting, out in public, etc. Oftentimes muting my laptop's volume is enough, but sometimes I need my laptop's volume up, like when I am playing music, showing a video on an external display or in a video conference.
My current solution is to have a copy of my regular profile with the bell disabled, then I have to go through each of the sessions I expect to use and switch the profile to the silent profile. This is often 8 or more sessions and more often than not I find myself using one that I forgot to switch and grumbling that I'm going to have to undo the changes in a hour.
What I would really like is an option in the menu to be able to toggle a global "quiet mode", where the bell is always silent, regardless of session profile.
Thanks for taking the time to consider my suggestion!
