How to hide Activity history under the "General" Channel
How to hide Activity history under the "General" Channel.
You can delete the conversations in a channel, however the activity history still shows and clutters up the page. Can we hide the activity history?
sick of getting random activity updates from people who dont use it properly and I have no way to disable
This is totally crazy feature that all users can read this information. There are things that all users shouldn't see. External user names, etc.
Microsoft, please react!

This is the worst thing ever, people get confused and there is irrelevant info everywhere.
Teams really appears to be half developed product, there is so much people is asking and many of thing are so obvious.
I love teams but there is a sense of unfinished product in every aspect

Please remove - staff know about joiners/ leavers on company team channels. Not ideal.

There are multiple reason why the activity should NOT be displayed. There is no need for everyone in a group to know that someone has been removed or added unless we select that option.

please add global option to disable activity display; the activity log can be seperated in another "activity" tab if it's necessary to be kept, the activity log is just a log not a "conversation".

please allow option to hide/change channel activity!
I am just setting up my first fairly intricate Teams group, and the first thing I noticed is that every.single.thing I do is reported on that first tab under General. How annoying!!! First, I don't want every team member reading about how I've been experimenting. Second, it's a waste of data space, and Third, it's just a useless distraction! Hide it somewhere so the administrator can access it (should they ever, ever desire to do so), but for goodness' sake, get rid of that thing from the FIRST PAGE USER SEE WHEN THEY JOIN YOUR GROUP! Ugh.

To have all the activity in the Conversations tab It's annoying and causes a sense of poor UI quality in MS Teams. It needs to be managed in a separated tab or hidden in an option.
Either hide it or move it to the Manage Team/Channel page - it really has no place in 'Conversations'

When addressing a personnel issue; who is removed from a Team/Channel should NOT be visible to all members.

This is absolutely necessary to be able to remove or hide the history, as you may have added some people info by mistake and then remove them. Their existence still shows here, as the owner removed and their details. It can be a potentially legal matter
Agree, it's impossible to make a nice presentation / training site with all the clutter from conversations. It just distracts users from the main purpose of the site and introduces inefficiencies when processing information.
How to hide Activity history under the "General" Channel ?
we already have the notification + email + .... too much; it's not a relevant information in the middle of a conversation

Ditto this: The activity feed is ABSOLUTELY DISTRACTING and needs to be collapsible, hideable, or deletable!
I do not want red dots indicating an unread message constantly popping up in the "activity" feed which is supposed to be a summary.
If I want red unread notifications, wouldn't I want them to be in the place where the message actually is? Rather than in some superfluous summary?
The activity feed is obnoxious, monstrous and I hate it with the fire of 1000 suns.

I also believe that history should be in a separate channel "History" instead of "General" and should be only viewable by owners.
By default, members and owners should receives notification when someone joins or leaves a Teams group he belongs to. If not needed it should be customizable in notification settings.
The activity history is really annoying and needs to be hideable, at least for members!

I agree. I recently removed a team member who had died. This shows up as an activity for all to see and is upsetting.
