User Notifications

By default, Nimbus does only notify the user on incoming Audio/Video calls. However, on certain channels of communication (such as External Task or Email) there is no call event in MS Teams to notify the user about. The Teams client will therefore not have any notification toast to show. Nimbus therefore offers a notification feature that can be toggled on via your individual user preferences.

Visibility / Licensing: Notification settings described on this page are only shown when the External Task or Email modalities are enabled on your General User Settings. Please note that additional modalities are subject to License Management. It may also be that certain modalities are disabled on your entire tenant, so the according settings may not be shown on your user account.

ūüí° Good to know:¬†With¬†Assistant¬†App installed on your PC, a pop-up window will already be presented on your desktop during any incoming service task (external or other). In this case you may may not need the extra notification features listed below.


Audio Notifications

When the audio notification setting is enabled Nimbus plays an audio notification via your Browser or MS Teams for as long as the task is in "incoming" status. The audio file will be looped until the task is accepted or rejected.


  • Nimbus Portal needs to be open either via the¬†Nimbus Personal App¬†in MS Teams or in your Edge/Chrome browser to play the audio.
  • Allow Nimbus to play sound in your browser.¬†¬†Your audio playback depends on your default output device and the volume set for your browser.
