Enable Notifications on the Teams App

Display Notifications as Permanent Banners

Select how you want your iPhone to display Teams notifications. If they’re displayed as temporary banners, they’ll go away automatically. If you check your iPhone a few minutes after receiving the notifications, you won’t see any.

Set your iPhone display to display Teams notifications as permanent banners. In this manner, the notifications will remain visible until you take action. So, you won’t miss any of them.

  2. Under Alerts, toggle on Show as teams notifications as banners iphone

Check if You Filtered Out Certain Notifications

Microsoft Teams lets you filter what kind of notifications you want to receive. If you’re getting some notifications, but not all of them, maybe you simply filtered them out.

  1. Launch Teams and tap on the app menu.
  2. Go to Notifications and check the notification settings for the following categories: General activity, Channels, and Meetings.general notification settings teams
  3. Then navigate to the Block notifications section and check if you blocked notifications during quiet time or during meetings.

Are You Active on Your Computer?

If Microsoft Teams is active on your computer, the service automatically suppresses notifications on your iOS device. This setting is active by default. It does not matter if you’re using the desktop app or the web version of Teams. As long as you remain active on your computer, you won’t receive any Teams notifications on your mobile device. Microsoft Teams considers you inactive on your desktop app after three minutes of inactivity.

The company adopted this strategy to reduce distractions and focus on the tasks at hand. However, you can opt to get Teams notifications on your iPhone even when you’re active on your computer.

  1. Launch Teams on your iPhone and tap the app menu.
  2. Go to Notifications and locate Block notifications.
  3. Select When active on teams notifications when active on desktop
  4. Enable notifications when active on desktop.

We hope that the notification problem has successfully been resolved after checking your notification settings. Found other solutions to fix this issue? Do let us know in the comments below.
