Let’s understand how to receive Push Messages in the ConfigMgr Console (Enable SCCM Console Notification from Microsoft | ConfigMgr). ConfigMgr 2006 version gives an option to choose to receive notifications from Microsoft in the ConfigMgr console.
Why Receive Push Messages?
The push messages are coming from Microsoft. These notification messages help you stay informed about new or updated features, changes to ConfigMgr and attached services, and issues that require action to remediate.
