24 Notifications

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.
