MC496241: Notification Granularity for Teams Mobile through Intune

Customers in fields like finance, healthcare, and law have been asking for a more granular control of what Teams Mobile shows and hides in a notification preview. In response, we are introducing an optional way for admins to control how much detail a user sees in a lock screen notification.

Note: This feature is only available to customers with Intune. If you organization does not use Intune you can safely disregard.

This message is associated with Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID 102651

Admins can use Intune to determine the types of content a user can see in a notification on their mobile lock screen.
