If you were getting annoyed with how Microsoft Teams was set up in terms of notifications, this could be the news you have been waiting for. 

Microsoft is planning to change the Activity feed in Microsoft Teams. Users will now have access to more options as they will now get to choose the type of notifications they would like to see. 

Since the pandemic, Microsoft Teams has undergone a tremendous transformation with updates all geared towards making the application more user-friendly.

Customizable notifications

At this point, it is important to note that users already have the option to customize the type of notifications they would like to receive.

What users have no control over is what shows up in the Activity Feed. These notifications can be a bother, but now, you have the chance to choose which notifications you want to show up.

More control

Microsoft is now making the Activity Feed more useful by allowing Teams users to configure the notifications manually.

“Users will be able to change the type of notification that appear in their activity feed. Right click on the feed item, and you will be able to turn on/off all reactions and select the apps you would like to get notifications from,” 

Although the update is currently under development, it is expected to be received later this month.
