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.

This can be a per-user setting.

Same here! I keep forgoting message if I don't answer them immediatly :/
Most often I see messages on my phone but I usually reply when I get back to my desktop. Unfortunately, I often forget which thread had the message unless I comb through the list of notifications.
Yes please and also would like to be able to flag?

@mac and @anonymous, agreed. I have missed so many messages because it is showing as read and I never actually saw them.
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.
