Time delay when message is marked as read
New messages or posts are immediately marked as read when user enters chat or channel. This has at times led to overlooked messages because call is coming in at same time or some other distraction. Similar to Outlook, user should have option when messages or posts are marked as ready, e.g. after 5 seconds or when manually marked as read (my personal preference).

Definitely need this - it is amazing how often something goes overlooked in Teams because of the immediate mark-as-read. Please follow the same delay setting as there is in Outlook.

The Outlook settings to delay or disable "Mark as read" had value, they would have the same value in Teams.
What best practices are recommended when following lots of teams and channels and ending up with lots of notifications that require my attention? Is the bookmark function the way to go instead of read/unread marking? If so, bookmarks should be more visible in the main interface as this would be a section that needs to be frequently reviewed. Please share best practices.
