Here’s how to get notification only from certain people within Microsoft Teams & mute the rest

Notification includes pop-up messages and the sound of the notification.

If you want to mute / unmute all notifications from all sources & people in a permanent fashion, check it out here: Mute / Unmute Notification on Microsoft Teams at JILAXZONE.

However if you want to get notifications only from select people while muting the rest and do not want to permanently mute the rest, here’s what you can do.

The steps are meant to be done in a computer – the steps on mobile app should be pretty much similar.

1) Login to Microsoft Team app.

2) On top right of the Microsoft Teams screen, next to the minimize, maximize and close button, there’s your initial / name / photo. Click on it and click on Settings to open Settings window.

3) Under Settings, go to Privacy.

4) Under Do not disturb, click on “Manage priority access”.

5) Under Manage priority access, on Add people section, type in the name or phone number from people that you want to get notification from. As you type in, the people will appear, click on it. Repeat for as many people as you want to get notification from.

6) Once done, click on “X” button located on top.

7) Now back to Microsoft Teams main interface, click again on your initial / name / photo. This time, click on “Available” and change it to “Do not disturb”.

Changing Microsoft Teams status to Do not disturb is enabling no notification pop-up from sources or people, except from priority list you set before so you can focus more on the work you need to do. Once you have done your critical task for the day, you can set back the status from “Do not disturb” back to “Available”.
