How to use Microsoft Teams Notification Settings


Microsoft Teams is loaded with features designed to enhance collaboration. Between the chats, channels, Teams, @mentions, and likes, notifications can be confusing.

It is very important to understand how to make sure you're not missing  anything important or relevant. This article will help you with setting Microsoft Teams notifications to your needs for mobile and desktop.

To access notifications on the Desktop select your profile picture on the top right then go to settings.

There are three primary options when it comes to notifications in Microsoft Teams. The “Banner and email” notification setting will show a banner message pop-up in the lower right of the screen and send an email (you can set the frequency) with the notification information.

If you select the “Banner” option, the banner notification will still show, but no email will be sent. If you select “Only show in feed” the notification will only be visible via the feed in the upper left of the application.

You will find the number of notifications in your activity feed, and via the feed you’ll be able to keep a list record of recent notifications. You can also filter the notifications in your feed by type, a feature that comes in handy when looking through your recent @mentions.
