Turn off Feed
Turn off or hide Activity Feed. Why is this separate from Chat? In other familiar chat applications, the most recent convos sort to the top. In this, the Feed shows a single person’s action and then it’s easy to accidentally message the group when you click on it because you think it will open your private conversation with just them. The Feed screen looks exactly the same as chats.
It is necessary to be able to delete all the history of the Chat both those sent and received !!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The feed just creates extra things to clear in work flow. Alternatively allowing @mentions and like to go only to the banner would resolve this issue. Currently they can be off, feed only, or banner and feed.

The separate activity feed is endlessly annoying in addition to serving no purpose. I already get notified by a pop up and sometimes an email. I don't need the feed too. How many different ways do I need something to show me there's been activity.
Hugely inappropriate that it can't be deleted especially if there is racist or bullying comments in an educational setting or a team member has blown up at someone in the organisation.The misery is still sitting there months later.
Some of us struggle to focus and having an activity feed attempting to steal our attention is counterproductive at best.
Some of us also know how to check things and do not need a reminder.

On top of everything else, the vote button doesn't work!!!
My comment: I don't need a welcome screen on an app I use daily: Just open the view I was on when I last used it!
Why did Microsoft take Lync away? Many complaints about teams (including this one that I can't up vote!!) are because Teams is MUCH more awkward to use than Lync was for the same capability.
My PC isn't a phone. Stop making apps with so much wasted real estate and huge buttons and missing functionality because there's no longer a real menu.
I hate where this seems to be headed. It's a re-skinned version of Microsoft Bob!
I'm so mad at Microsoft right now I can't formulate a concise comment!!!

This is the main issue with it, quoting from below:
"Its distracting, the thing doesn't clear when you have read the actual channel with the notification"
E.g. I must acknowledge items (e.g. missed calls) in the feed separately.
MS is not the only company failing this. Facebook is the same recently, have to ack everything 3 times there. ****** independent microservice push chaos design.

Our school pupils had posted racist, bullying and inappropriate comments before chat was turned off - these comments have been deleted but still show in activity. they can be partially hidden but reseen via three dots.
This is a safeguarding issue and needs to be addressed
I hate the feed. Its always there, even if i take it off the menu. Its stressful to have one more unread notification counter, (eapecially because I'm not going to ever read the notifications so they will never go away)
I would love to use words that I am not allowed to say anymore to describe my feelings about the Activity feed. Get rid of it please.
Activity feed is pretty pointless and just creates a double notification when someone reacts to a message. Come on Microsoft, you're one of the biggest tech companies yet your IM system is subpar to most other forms of IM/chat programs. Step your game up!
I would like to have the ability to turn off the activity feed. As others have pointed out, its distracting.
Turn off or hide Activity Feed.
Maybe just silence the feed so I don't get notifications about it all the time. Have it there, silently, in case I want to refer to it at all.
Its distracting, the thing doesn't clear when you have read the actual channel with the notification on it!!!
activity feeds need a switch so they can be disabled..it is just noise
Our staff is very annoyed by this activity feed, please throw it out of Teams.
Please give us the possibility to decide if we want notifications or not. It feels like spam. At least add the option to delete activities. no one needs them.

Unable to clear Old activity feeds , we hope this feature will be updated by Microsoft very soon and we are waiting for the same
