How to Disable Player Advancement Announcements

Advancement is a feature available exclusively on Minecraft Java Edition wherein players can complete tasks in-game. This feature assists new players into Minecraft's gameplay by completing challenges.

Once a player achieves an advancement, a sliding toast notification is displayed in-game on the upper-right corner of the screen for the player and is also broadcasted in the chat.

Player Advancement - advancement announcement

If you would prefer to have the achievement to not be broadcasted in your server chat, you can easily do this by running the command /gamerule announceAdvancements false in-game. You may also use this command on you server console by removing the "/" symbol. 

NOTE: You must be a server operator (OP) to be able to use the /gamerule command. If you are not yet an operator, check out our tutorial here: Giving Operator (OP) to a Player

For Minecraft versions 1.11.X and earlier, you may also disable advancement announcements on your server.properties file (How to Configure Your Minecraft Server) by changing the value of announcement-player-achievements to false.
