Intune Service Notifications

Hi All,

Wouldn’t it be great if you stay up-to-date about the latest Intune Service Notifications directly in the console without “RSS Feeding” you favorite blogs to stay informed about the latest and the greatest? Well, you can!

The configuration described below works for both standalone and hybrid setups.

For Hybrid setups, it’s today not possible to port these Notifications into the Configuration Manager console so you have to go the Intune Cloud console to see the list of Notifications or read the notification mails of course.

So yes, today this goes a bit against the Single-Pane-of-Glass approach but that’s what it is today.

Let’s go through the necessary steps:

Open the Intune console and go to the Admin Section and select “Recipients”.
Add the mail addresses of your choice that should receive NEW alerts.


Then go to the “Notification Rules” under the Admin Section and create a new Rule.

Important is that you select “Notices”.


Select all Device Groups


Select the recipients that should receive the notifications through mail


That’s it! Now you have to wait till you receive NEW notifications.

If you want to consult older notifications go to the Alerts Section and select the name of your Notice Notification rule.


Teaser: One important notification that is coming up, is the official announcement as from when iOS 7.1 will be required for running the Company Portal for all users (i.e. if you’re running an older version, it will prevent you from using the Company Portal until you upgrade to iOS 7.1+)

Till next time!
