Microsoft Teams Notifications

If you're getting interrupted on teams and receiving too many notifications, follow the steps below in this order:

Hide Channels

The first thing you want to do is hide any channels that you don't want to be notified about when they are broadcast.

They'll appear in the hidden channels list so that you can still access them, but you'll only see them if you want to be notified when someone mentions the channel in question.

Mute Group Chats

The second thing to do is to mute any group chats that are taking place.

Instead of receiving notifications whenever someone replies in a group chat, you can simply hit the three dots and mute the conversation.

Change Status To Do Not Disturb

The last thing you want to do is change your team's status, so don't do it. Simply going into your little avatar icon where it says available and selecting Do Not Disturb should prevent the majority of interruptions from teams from coming in and interfering with your work.

P.S. If you are not receiving support from your organization to upskill you on more modern ways of working, we are free to launch a couple of courses that might help you out. You can check those out at And if you enter SOCIAL20 at checkout, you'll get an extra 20% off.
