How to configure a notification profile for macOS

The MacOS notification profile provides administrators with a comprehensive configuration tool for managing notifications for multiple programmes. It allows you to fine-tune notification settings including badging, music, banner display, and the option to display notifications on the lock screen. This profile allows notifications to be managed even while the device is in Do Not Disturb mode, ensuring that vital messages or alerts reach users when needed. Administrators get granular control over how notifications are sent and displayed by exploiting these features, improving the user experience while preserving the necessary boundaries for uninterrupted processes.
