    Unfortunately, it seems that unless you have rooted your Galaxy S7 Edge, you cannot add custom audio files as notifications (( I wonder why they don't have "+add a file" to the notifications, like they do in the ringtones!

    Actually you can add. Just connect the s7 edge to a computer, select device storage, look for notification folder and add there,

    Or

    Download the files through your s7, go to the Samsung app folder, select my files app. . Locate the folder where you download the new sounds. Select all of the sounds you want
    Select move or copy option
    Select device storage
    Select notification folder
    Paste/move your sound files there.
    Your done. Now you can select them. No rooting is needed
    So far I've used MP3 and M4A files with no issues
