SCCM Console Notification Option in Action for ConfigMgr OLD vs New | Configuration Manager

Let’s concentrate on the Console Notification Option in Action for ConfigMgr 2010 | ConfigMgr. You have an option to receive Push Messages in the ConfigMgr Console.

After installing ConfigMgr 2010, I have received a notification alert in the SCCM console. I have shared my first experience of notification in this post.

The notifications are more readable and the action link is easier to find with the 2010 version. The age of the notification is displayed to help you find the latest information.

You have the option to dismiss or snooze a notification, that action is now persistent for your user across consoles.

1E Nomad
  • Navigate to \Administration\Overview\Site Configuration\Sites

  • Select the following options
    • Prevent/fix: Known issues affecting your organization that may require you to take action
    • Plan for change: Changes to Configuration Manager that may require you to take action
    • Stay informed: Informs you of new or updated features that are available

Check Console Notification

You can check SCCM console notification just below the close button. You can click on the bell icon in the console and that is the ConfigMgr notification alert.

It also provides the details about the number of notifications available for you in the console. In my first experience, I saw only one notification.

The notification action link option is useful to perform the actions directly from the Admin console notifications.

  • Click on Bell icon to see the details about the notification.
  • New custom console extensions are available.
  • Click on the Hyperlink Install custom console extensions to get this installed.
