I don't know what triggers an OFFICE 365 TIP, but I want to prevent them from appearing in the message bar. How can I do this? I've included a screen snip of one from Excel that I get all the time, and that I hate. These things are so annoying.

@iamjamieqYou should be able deactivate this in the admin center.

 

In the preview, go to Settings > Services and Add-Ins. Find and select Microsoft communication with users (name might be slightly different). Then disable the option in the flyout.

@Daniel Niccoli  Assuming you mean Office 365 Admin Center, is there by any chance a way to turn them off without admin access? Or do I need to speak to my IT manager?

@iamjamieqThere is an old thread about this, but nothing new to learn: https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/Office-365/How-do-I-block-Microsoft-yellow-info-bar-ads/td-p/...

 

You're probably out of luck.

@Daniel Niccoli Ugh. Thank you. It is infuriating how little information there is about these notifications online. Basically next to nothing about them.
