Control notification when Add members
Team's administrators sometime would like to avoid the automatic built-in email welcome message sent to a new member when he/she's being added to a Team but sent a custom message in a later time explaining the new members the whole contact of the new team they've been invited to. Option to uncheck email notification (similar to what SharePoint provides is very needed to address this scenario.
In addition, the timing of sending this email welcome message should be changed to after all members at this cycle are being added so admin can regret and remove from the list potential members before this email is sent.

Yes, please, feature parity with adding users to SharePoint. It's very common that I need to add users to a Team and then compose a custom welcome message in email, without worrying that they'll be confused by the auto-generated notification first.
We really need to have this. Right now with a lot of students doing remote learning, we want to be able to add whole groups of students silently without sending them distracting emails. Teachers want to be able to control how students of a new team are invited to the new team and the automatic emails contain too much information about Office 365 groups and other things which is confusing and distracting. I would have thought there was a lot of demand for this as it has been possible in SharePoint for ever (as stated in the original post). Please please allow the suppression of notifications. I know this is possible via PowerShell, but not everyone has access or the ability to use this solution. Please, please, please implement this. Thank you.

Also making it a option to show who has been added or removed by the owner

We need a better bulk add option and the ability to suppress the standard "you've been added" email notification on a per-Team basis

Agree. This feature should be controlled at the Tenant level and/or Team level.
Without this feature business partners have to work with the outlook adminstrator to blcok invite emails at the mail gateway level (outside of Teams).
