Is there a way to turn off email notifications for firstline workers without them having to log into a desktop app to modify those notifications themselves? I work in healthcare and a lot of physicians will never login to the desktop and we do not want them having emails in addition to mobile notifications. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi @katielunger

Sure. Login to the web app at https://teams.microsoft.com. Then follow this guide to stop email notifications

https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/office/manage-notifications-in-teams-1cc31834-5fe5-412b-8edb-43f...

Unfortunately, notifications are not centrally managed and so this one is down to users. There are uservoices to add central management of notifications such as this one which I have voted on

So recommend to vote on this and you'll be notified if it gets picked up. Otherwise, it will be the above method to get around the desktop app

Best, Chris
