There are a few ways that notifications work in Teams and you have options to customize what you will receive and how.

By default, you will only receive a notification when:

  • Someone mentions you in a post
  • Mentions the whole team
  • You choose to follow a channel for all updates.

Set Notification Preferences

  1. Click on your profile in the upper-right corner of the Teams window.
  2. Click on Settings. (see screenshot)
  3. Select Notifications and choose your preferences.

Mention a person or team

When posting in a channel, use the "@" symbol followed by the name of a person or the name of the team. This will send a notification to that person or team based on their preferences. (see screenshot)

Follow a channel

If you follow a channel, you will be notified of all posts even if you were not mentioned. To follow a channel, click on the "..." next to the channel name and select Follow this channel. (see screenshot)
