    I don't remember when we added the M365 apps notification option, assuming it was in the last couple of ConfigMgr versions, what client agent version are you clients running (because if they are not running the latest they wouldn't know how to implement this setting)?

    The notification setting you are referring to is for updates deployed by ConfigMgr but the notifications you note aren't from ConfigMgr, they are from the M365 productivity apps.

    Have you configured ConfigMgr to manage M365 productivity apps updates (see https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/deployoffice/manage-microsoft-365-apps-updates-configuration-manager for details)?

    Hello Rakeshck

    I would recommend changing the next registry key:

    To disable the update notification, we can try the following registry key settings:

    Value Name: hideupdatenotifications
    Value Type: REG_DWORD
    Value Data: 1
    You can also create the hideupdatenotifications value with group policy setting to disable it:


    But also check the next forum thread:

    Hi, @rakesh ck

    Thank you for posting in Microsoft Q&A forum.

    Like Jason mentioned, M365 apps notification option is introduced in version 2111.
    If we configure the option to "No", User should not receive any notification from Microsoft 365 Apps.

    Do you have multiple client settings for this configuration? You may check the Resultant Client Settings to confirm:

    Also, which notifications are displayed to the user about updates for Microsoft 365 Apps is also determined by the settings for per deployment notifications from Software Center. If the deployment's user notifications from Software Center are disabled (found on the User Experience page for the deployment), then the end user won't receive any notifications from either Software Center or Microsoft 365 Apps, regardless of how notifications from Microsoft 365 Apps are set.

    We are getting this issue as well. Just started this month (July 2022) and can;'t think of anything that has changed within SCCM. The new semi-annual version of office was released this month but have the pilot group on the new version and production on the old version and happening in both. Can confirm that 'Enable update notifications from Microsoft 365 Apps' is set to No also
