Configuration of Windows Update reboot notifications

In one of my blog posts (Delay Windows Update pending reboot with toast notification) I have already described how to give the user more flexibility in deciding when he wants to reboot his device but still remind him regularly. In this blog I want to explain you how to configure the system notification of Windows Update for business. The reason for this blog is a question in the Microsoft tech community.

Creation of the configuration profile

  • Open the MEM Portal
  • Navigate to Devices -> Windows -> Configuration profiles
  • Click + Create profile

  • Click Next
  • Assign the policy to a group

Stay healthy, Cheers
