The Priority Notifications feature was announced last year at ignite, and from what I've ready it's supposed to be available in preview for all tenants now.  I have created a custom messaging policy enabling the sending of priority notifications and assigned the policy to myself, but I see nothing in the teams UI that indicates how I would do this.  

 

How do I send a message with a priority notification?

AFAIK these are in private preview currently and not yet available publically!

Hmm, I could swear I had read that it was available to all customers now. Glancing back at the documentation, maybe what I saw was the mention that it is being made available to all customers for free until the end of the year, and I assumed that meant it was already deployed. I see now in one place that it says this is from June 2019 until December 31st 2019, so perhaps it's still to be rolled out sometime this month.

I have been looking for this all day too because I saw that same message in the message center. I guess this is still rolling out. Thanks for the post though, glad to hear I am not alone.

@Steve Whitcher

 

I have enabled the same policy (ages ago) and on my mobile client today , ive got a new 'A' which when used, turns the text colour red, so I assume 'A' is for alert. But when sending, it doesn't do anything different in terms of notifications so far.  no option to do the same in the desktop client,  (version 1.2.00.13765 64bit. 

@James Ling  Where and when do you see the "A"?  I've been trying to figure this out too.

For us, I do see the Priority Notification option in the Teams Admin Portal for our tenant but the option is still not showing in the Teams application or the Web portal.  Is there any other steps I need to take?

No, just wait!

It is there as of today for our tenant but only available in Chat, which I'm guessing is the intent since it could create quite the disturbance if someone did that in a large Teams Channel conversation.

I see it Chat in my tenant as well.  :)
