QuickHelp can send communications via the BrainStorm Microsoft Teams app. If you or your users are not receiving these messages, it may be for a few reasons.

  • End users do not have the checkmark displayed in the QuickHelp Admin Portal.
  • End users have turned off Teams messages in their personal QuickHelp.
  • End users have blocked Teams messages in their personal BrainStorm Teams App.

Checkmark Not Displayed in QuickHelp Admin Portal

To be able to send these communications, the end users must have the correct version of Teams, correctly installed. To verify a user can receive Teams messages, go to USERS > Search for the users. Verify that the user has a checkmark under the Teams column.

If they do not, this can be updated by the user in the BrainStorm Teams app:

a. In the messaging field type in "SignIn".

b. Complete O365 login credentials,  the app will return a message confirming successful sign in. 

c. Type "update user data", the app will return a message confirming the user data has been successfully updated. 

d. After the user has completed steps a-c, return to the QuickHelp admin portal. Go to USERS > Search for the user and verify that the checkmark now appears under the Teams column. 


This can be updated at an organizational level for multiple users by following the directions found in this document:

  2. Click on Settings.
