Teams notifications in email

Contributor

Does Teams send a notification to email if you have unread Chat messages?

 

Thanks,

Anne

Hello, well you have something that's called "missed activity emails" that will be sent when you're - away - from Teams. I think it's better if I attach the support links as they describe it more in detail. By going to the notification settings in Teams and Chat you will only see Banner and Feed as options, not email.

Hi there, I thought my reply was pretty good ;)
Thanks for your helpful links. The short answer is private chat does not send activity notifications to email. Only Team activity does.

Thank you,
Anne
Hi, I’ve never use missed activity but I am pretty sure you’ll get an email for missed chat if you’ve had your presence changed to away. But let me know if I’m wrong :)
