Mark all as Read
I constantly have notification warnings for teams I am in but rarely interact with. I can't get these notifications to go away unless I click each message and team window so that they are marked as read.
There needs to be a "Mark all as read" button some where.
it's a must have !

Particularly prominent where there has been chat in meetings - definitely need a mark all as read button for all Teams chats
This is a great idea. Also, WhatsApp has a "Mark as read" option on message pop-ups. This would be useful too as I can often read the message in the pop-up.... so it is read!
This would be a great feature if 'Mark All Read' was implemented under the Activity tab.

I also suggest adding it to the right click context menu on the Activity / Chat menu button. Currently they both have 'Unpin' and Chat has 'New chat'

I have so many "unread" chats. Dozens! Please give me a "Mark all as unread" button, maybe right-clicking the Chat sidebar.
Agreed. Like at the top of the side bar when you're in "Activity".

I think this same request exists here:

Please consider this feature! I need it for my sanity. I'm part of 27 Teams and countless channels.
Andrew Rechenberg commented
Please add this feature - as is mentioned below, equivalent to Slack's 'SHIFT+ESC' Thanks :)

Please wake this thread up and add a "mark all messages as read" shortcut to your backlog (preferably on top). :) We users need this feature to maintain our sanity and to make our daily use of Teams more effective. All the comments below are accurate so I will not add more scenarios where this feature can be useful.
Not to antagonize here, but rather for your reference, Slack's implementation of this feature can be found with "Shift-Esc"
Should have option to mark those notifications as read. Really bother by open each item and click on it to make it go away.

Something like Slack's Shift + Esc shortcut would be amazing.
I am a leader and have multiple teams that I am in charge of. My activity feed is helpful to watch the multiple team boards at once, but even when I sign off for the night I am bombarded by notifications in my feed. It is virtually impossible for me to mark them individually because as soon as I get one marked as reading I get 5+ more. A "mark all as read" option is a must for people using this to monitor multiple channels!
I've been on vacation for a week. I have dozens of new items in my feed (not chat) that I need to mark as read. Do I really need to click on each one...and wait on each for the 1-2 seconds Teams needs before it marks them as read?
We need a "Mark all as read" button.
Should have the ability to mark everything in my feed as read. Getting distracted by old posts and trying to "Mark as read" individually is a never ending task, waste of time, and is what keeps me from using this otherwise productive tool.

Please allow for mark all messages in a channel as read - otherwise filtering by unread messages (especially for operational messages channels that bots post could get really noisy - especially after being gone)
Frank Connolly commented
The /unread shortcut is great but a command to mark all as read or menu option as suggested would be appreciated. Returning to work after a holiday makes this manual process painful.
A feature such as "right-click chat icon -> mark all as read in drop down" would be much appreciated.
