Step 3: Customize Notification Settings

Now that you’ve found the Teams notification settings, it’s time to disable them. Here are the options you can customize:

  • Show notification previews: This option determines whether Teams displays a preview of the message within the notification. If you find these previews distracting, you can toggle this option off.
