Why can't I set a different ringtone for each notification on my new Galaxy S20? Some notifications are not as important as others\, so while I would like to know that there is a new notification, I would also like to be able to differentiate between sounds to figure out if I need to stop what I am doing to look at what just came in or if it can wait awhile...

where do you see the notification type, I'm at notifications - recently sent - clicked on email - takes me to app notifications but I don't see type anywhere just show notifications and some other options but nothing about notifcation type.
From the screen you are on, there is a bar that says "show notifications" and then under that is your notification type. For example, when I look at the app notification for my gmail account, I see my email address (which is not "clickable" and begins a list), and under that is a bar that says "show notifications" and under that it says mail. If you click on "mail" (the word mail and not the "button" to the right), then it will open up options to change the sound that plays when you receive mail. On the prior screen, my list goes on to say "miscellaneous" (which is unclickable) and under that there is another "show notifications" bar, but under that I have two more options - miscellaneous and attachments. Each of those options can have their own sound if I wanted. I just wanted everything related to Gmail to have a different sound than my text message sound, but if you don't change each of those options, then they will ring as your default sound.
I just set custom tones for notifications on my S20. Here's an example to change it for text messages (but you can change it for any app):
- Click on the App (Messages)
- Click on New messages (not the on/off toggle)
- Click Alert
- Scroll down and click sound
- Select the sound
