Console Tools on Collection: Send Notification

This tool sends custom notifications to the device or collection that you select in the ConfigMgr Console.

How it does it

By default the send notification tool will attempt to use the custom "Recast Toast" notification which includes the ability to add an icon. If it is not able to send a notification that way, it will attempt to send a notification through the Configuration Manager client. If that fails the last attempt will be to send a Windows notification.
