Custom Notifications using Intune

Microsoft Intune can be used to send custom notifications to managed iOS/iPadOS and Android devices. These messages appear as standard push notifications from the Company Portal app and from the Microsoft Intune app on a user's device, just as notifications from other applications on the device appear. Intune custom notifications aren't supported by macOS and Windows devices.

As an iOS/iPadOS device, the notification displays within the Company Portal app instead of being pushed out as a push notification if the app is open at the time the notification is received. Until the notification is dismissed, it remains on the screen.


  • The device must be MDM enrolled.

  • The device must have the Company Portal app

  • The Company Portal app must be allowed to send push notifications.
