Message Summary

Updated February 14, 2022: We have updated the content below with a link to the Message center Preferences. Thank you for your feedback.

Beginning in early April 2022, admins within your tenant will no longer receive the Message center weekly digest and major update email notifications by default. Any existing admins who have customized their Message center email preferences will continue to receive these emails, based on their customized preferences, and this update will have no impact. This change will also not affect the opt-in state for email notification of Data Privacy related messages.

New admins, specifically those with the roles of Global Admin, Message Center Reader or Message Center Privacy Reader, will be subscribed to a 4-week trial period for the Message center weekly digest and can choose to stay subscribed once the trial has concluded by using the Message center preferences menu.

We are making this change based on customer feedback, where the overall consensus was to allow admins to opt in to receive these emails.

When this will happen:

This change is expected to roll out in early April 2022.

How this will affect your organization:

Any admins who have not customized their preferences or taken action to stay subscribed to Message center email notifications will need to do so by April 1st, 2022, if they would like to continue to receive these notifications.

What you need to do to prepare:

Admins who would like to stay subscribed to the Message Center weekly digest and major update email notifications will need to visit the Message Center Preferences menu, confirm the email address to subscribe and save their preferences.

Another way to get to the Message Center Preferences — where you can customize Message Center view and emails — is by clicking on the Preferences button located above the filter menu. If you don’t see the Preferences button, please ensure that all messages in the list are unselected.”
