When you work in Microsoft Teams and your status is set to “do not disturb”, it’s logical that you will not receive any notifications. However, there is a feature that allows you to override this feature.
Despite the status “Do not disturb” you can receive notifications from specific (and extra important) people, such as your boss.
Here’s how to do it
- Click on your profile picture
- Click on Settings
- Click on Privacy
- Click on the button “Manage priority access
- Add those people who shall be entitled to disturb you even if your status is “do not disturb”.
