Notifications on Teams are an excellent tool for helping you stay up-to-date on conversations but can also
overwhelm you if not set up properly.
Notifications on Teams come in two types: Banner and Feed. For each channel in a Team, you can have Teams notify you for messages through a
Banner and a Feed message, just a Feed message, or no notifications at all.
Banner Notifications: These are the "loudest" and should be used for Teams where you want to make sure
you don't miss any message.
When you receive a message and you have Banner Notifications turned on, you will see
a notification pop-up either at the bottom right or top left of your screen accompanied
by a notification sound.
Feed Notifications: This type of notification is more subtle than a banner notification but still gives
you a visual notification that you have received a message.
When you receive a message and you have Feed Notifications turned on, you will only
see a small red number in your Activity Feed (the top left icon shaped like a bell).
These silent notifications are great for channels where you want to keep track of
conversations but don't want an auditory notification for every single message.
No Notifications: Finally, you can set your Notifications for any channel to OFF. If you do so, you
will only be notified if someone mentions you directly (@name).
