How can we make Microsoft Teams better?

Stay unread till pressed read botton

When I go to Activity and press one of the new mention will automatically mark read on another thread's mention in the same channel which losts my attention. It is good to have a READ botton on the mention itself to manually mark as read, especially the mention was @ to me.

    Yes, please. Same approach as in Outlook where you can set whether or not a message is automatically marked as read, as well as time delays. Currently a mere switching back and forth between applications mark message on the current Teams screen as read. I find myself manually marking messages as unread quite often, so as not to forget messages I have to get back to.

    If Teams is supposed to be the main work environment, the user will receive more messages at a given moment than can be processed, which is why the read/unread behavior needs to be customizable to user preference.

    As well it appears that if I select the top item in my activity others automatically un-bold. I would like them to stay bolded until I mark it as read.
