Turn Off “Your teammates are trying to reach you” on Microsoft Teams



Getting notifications from Microsoft Teams keeps you updated with things you are missing out on a daily basis. But sometimes, some notifications are just unnecessary and straightly annoying. For instance, there was a bug in Microsoft Teams that prevented email notifications from sending out. When it got fixed, pending messages started to flood the inboxes of many users.

Most email notifications come with the message that says “Your teammates are trying to reach you”. If you don’t want to receive this kind of email notices, you can disable or completely turn it off on your Microsoft Teams app settings.


How to Disable “Your Teammates are Trying to Reach You” Notifications in Microsoft Teams

If you don’t want to see the email notification that someone from your team is trying to reach you in Microsoft Teams, you can disable or remove it by following the steps below.

  • Launch your Microsoft Teams app on your device.
  • Go to the Settings menu.
  • Select Notifications.
  • Go to Email.
  • Beside Missed activity emails, click the drop-down menu.
  • Select Off.
  • Go to Teams and channels.
  • Select Custom.
  • Beside Channel mentions, click Off on the drop-down menu.

Once you have turned off the missed activity emails setting, you will no longer receive notifications that someone is trying to reach you. There is also another way not to see annoying messages like this. You can set a rule in your inbox that will block emails that contain specific text.

How to Create an Email Rule on Outlook to Block Microsoft Teams Notifications


For instance, you don’t want to see any message that includes “trying to reach you,” you can set a mailbox rule in your Outlook email client by following these steps below.

  • On your Outlook, go to Settings.
  • Select Mail.
  • Click Rules.
  • Choose Add new rule.
  • Go to Add a condition. Now, you can set the text restrictions either on the subject or the body of the email. Type the message that it should include.
  • Go to Add an action. If you don’t want to see the email, you can set it to Delete to remove it automatically.
  • Click Save.
