Personal Notifications in MS Teams

Personal notifications are messages that relate to a specific user. They appear in external applications as a direct message that comes from the Paligo app and they let you know about:

  • @ mentions of your Paligo user name in reviews

  • Reply comments in topics that you have followed

  • Someone has shared a document with you

  • Production notifications, including when a publication is ready for download or has failed.

In MS Teams, personal notifications appear as "cards" in the Chat section.


Paligo can also send other, more general types of notifications to MS Teams, but these can only be sent to a channel.
