MS Teams enables students to interact with you in a variety of ways. However, a large wave of notifications may become overwhelming. Fortunately, MS Teams offers a variety of options for receiving your notifications, including:
- Banner and Email (notification in the corner of your desktop, and an email)
- Banner (notification in the corner of your desktop)
- Only Show in feed (notifications are confined to the Activity section in Microsoft Teams)
You can also set your status to “Do Not Disturb” if you want to ensure a distraction free class, or set some time aside to focus on work.
It may be worthwhile to download the mobile Teams app to ensure you don’t miss any time-sensitive messages when you are away from your computer; but also make sure you are not overburdened with notifications while you are not working.
