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.
I'd like to have this possible not only for chat messages but any kind of activity (e.g. new topic on a channel or mentions).
Current situation: Someone wrote a short message on a channel. I received popup with the message, new activity indicator is added to Teams. I aknowledged the message and dismissed notification popup. The new activity indicator needs to be removed manually but reading the message again in Teams.
Wanted situation: Someone wrote a short message on a channel. I received popup with the message, new activity indicator is added to Teams. I aknowledged the message and dismissed notification popup. I could've choose "Hide popup" button but I've clicked "dismiss" button, so the new acitivty indicator is gone and notification associated with message is automatically marked as read in Teams.
Couldn't agree more. (The "mark as read", not the "like".) It's a standard feature on smartphones' SMS notifications. Please add "mark as read" feature to Microsoft Teams' banners. I'd vote for this again and again if I could. Thanks.
If you could switch "like" for "mark as read" that would be awesome.
Would very much like to see this feature as well.
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.
