Who has viewed a channel message
Our IT department is testing out Teams but noticed a feature that doesn't exist (or that we could find) that exists on other messaging platforms. having the ability to see who viewed a message in a channel.
This feature becomes extremely important when you have teams with a lot of users in a channel and not everyone has to reply because it is more used as live status information and just need to make sure that your team is staying engaged and viewing the messages.
Teams offers a lot of great features, but this one feature is key and extremely important and hope this can be a future feature because visibility is important.

This would be extremely helpful. Been looking for a similar feature for a while!
@Sean did you get any solution on this? I'm looking for a similar functionality to check how many viewers viewed a post on a channel.
Agree that this is an important feature to add!
Yes, our team really need this feature, because we want to know how many peoples who read the post, especially when we post an announcement for our department. So we can keep track for anyone who not get the information
We are interested in this also. I can see this feature is available in chat messages but not in channels. Important updates are posted here and it is important we can see who has viewed them.
Has your IT department resolved this issue? And if so how do I find who has read message ssent in channels? I am new to Teams and want to know if and who has read chat / messages in the channels I am using.
