Intune – Manage Outlook organizational data notification

A new application protection policy setting has been introduced in Intune to let you manage Outlook Mobile notification.

With this new setting, administrator can define if notification from Outlook Mobile (email and calendar) can be (or not) by displayed on the lock screen – this is available for both Android and iOS devices, including wearable ones (such as Smart Watch).

To configure this setting, logon to either your Azure portal, and go to the Intune\Client apps blade (https://portal.azure.com/) or Device Management portal and go to the Apps blade (https://devicemanagement.microsoft.com/)
