Slack, Zoom Team Chat, or Webex primary end users who also maintain full secondary Microsoft Teams accounts may want to disable Teams notifications to declutter their workspace.

Admins are unable to make these changes on an organizational scale. Share this guide with your end users to walk them through disabling Microsoft Teams notifications.

Note that changing these settings will not affect the Mio sync. End users will still receive notifications on their primary platform.
