Push notifications, in the form of badges, icons, or alerts, can be sent to a mobile device even when the mobile application is inactive. Push notifications notify a user of events such as a new or missed IM invitation and voice mail. You can view information push notifications settings for mobile devices by using either Lync Server 2013 Control Panel or Lync Server 2013 Management Shell.

  1. From a user account that is assigned to the CsUserAdministrator role or the CsAdministrator role, log on to any computer in your internal deployment.

  2. Open a browser window, and then enter the Admin URL to open the Lync Server Control Panel. For details about the different methods you can use to start Lync Server Control Panel, see Open Lync Server 2013 administrative tools.

  3. In the left navigation bar, click Clients, and then click the Push Notification Configuration navigation button.

  4. On the Push Notification Configuration page, click the site you want to view, click the Edit menu, and then click Show details.
