How To Notify Everyone In Microsoft Teams

How To Articles

Hello there! I would like to discuss a helpful function in Microsoft Teams which enables you to alert all members of your team. Being a regular user of Teams for collaborating and communicating, I have found this feature to be extremely beneficial.

So, let’s dive right into it. To notify everyone in Microsoft Teams, follow these simple steps:

Step 1: Open the Team

In order to notify everyone in your team, you first need to open the Team where you want to send the notification. Simply click on the Teams tab on the left-hand side of the Teams app and select the appropriate Team from the list.

Step 2: Go to the General Channel

Once you’re inside the Team, navigate to the General channel. This is the default channel that is created for every Team and is a great place to send important announcements or updates.

Step 3: Click on the “…” button

At the top-right corner of the General channel, you will find a button with three dots (…). Click on this button to reveal a dropdown menu of options.

Step 4: Select “Get all notifications”

In the dropdown menu, select the option that says “Get all notifications.” This will ensure that every member of the Team receives a notification for your message.

And that’s it! With just these four simple steps, you can effectively notify everyone in your Microsoft Teams team. It’s a quick and efficient way to make sure your message reaches all team members.

Now, let’s take a moment to talk about some best practices when it comes to using this feature:

  • Be concise: Keep your notifications short and to the point. People are more likely to read and respond to a message that is clear and concise.
  • Use @mentions: If you want to get someone’s attention specifically, use the @mention feature in Teams. This will send them a notification directly.
  • Consider urgency: Not every message requires a notification to everyone. Use your judgment to decide when a notification is necessary.


Microsoft Teams provides a powerful and efficient way to communicate and collaborate with your team members. With the ability to notify everyone in your team, you can ensure that important messages reach everyone who needs to see them. Just remember to use this feature judiciously and consider whether a notification is truly necessary for every message.

So, go ahead and start using this feature in Microsoft Teams to keep your team members informed and engaged!
