Mark message as read directly from notifications.
We send/receive a lot of short messages that can be read in their entirety from their notifications. Since there's no way to mark a message as read directly from the notification, we basically have to dismiss the message "twice": clear the notification itself and then click into the desktop app to clear the red unread badges. It would be great time/click saver if there were a way to mark a message as being read directly from the notification itself.
My suggestion is similar, but to replace the current 'X' which dismisses the notification dialog, to have two interactive text buttons. One which reads "Mark as Read" and the other would read "Dismiss".
Mark as Read would both dismiss the notification and mark that conversation as read in the Teams client. Dismiss would just dismiss the notification as the X currently does. Leaving the notification in Teams that their is an unread chat.
Would also love to see a "Mark all as Read" for the activity feed.
