Microsoft Teams monitoring and alerting

New monitoring and alerting capabilities for Microsoft Teams are available in the Teams admin center. Use different sets of rules available under the Notifications & alerts section in the Teams admin center to monitor Teams capabilities and receive alerts. For example, you can actively monitor the health of Teams devices such as IP Phones, Teams Rooms on Android, and others if they unexpectedly go offline.

Your organization can use Teams monitoring and alerting to do the following items:

  • Automatically manage Teams capabilities
  • Be alerted if they show something unexpected.
  • Take corrective actions to get things back on-track.


The alert functionality within the Teams admin center is not available in GCC/GCC-High environments.

You must be a global admin in Microsoft 365 or a Teams service admin to configure alerting rules. See Use Teams administrator roles to manage Teams to learn more about Teams admin roles and which reports each admin role can access.
