Users added to team line removed
In each general channel a new line gets created for all new users added to a team. Can this line be removed?
As an example I setup a team and get some posts ready for welcome messages and introductions, then when I add groups of people, after a few lines all my messages have pushed up and off the screen.
We have one specific team for all in the business and all the threads are getting lost as we add each department/individuals one by one.
Same concerns as Chris and others, notifications of when users are removed from the group should have an option of being disabled. We need to be able to close someone's access immediately after the termination, without everyone in the company finding out about it, prior to a formal announcement.
Teams overall is great but it seems to be such a huge design flaw that the main space when you open a Team is totally cluttered with notifications about who has left or joined. All the richer content for collaboration is out of site below. Is this going to be fixed or made optional - surely it should??? It makes the whole experience so messy and slows you down by having to scroll through a lot of unnecessary posts
This needs to be removed, especially seeing you can not 'pin' a post. I have created a team, written a welcome introduction which now nobody sees as the new member notifictions have pushed it out of view! new members need to be able to see the post to know how the team works, this is not the place to show who has joined or left....
Also, when the user is terminated or leaves the company and is removed from the O365 groups via Exchange Admin - the message is displayed in Teams that the user was removed. It is distracting to other users. Need to have an option to hide Add / Remove users from Teams Channels.
Has the same issue as Chris. With a org wide Teams you can see hirings and even when an account has been deleted so left the team... sometimes because he has been fired... Shoudn't be so compicated to deactivate it

This is also now an issue with regards to HR updates. We have an all company team that will now show terminations/hiring's before a formal announcement has been sent out. Our General channel is quickly becoming the HR update for the company."
A need for sure! It's beginning to be a reason to not use the Teams corporate channel.

Adding to this, the fact that these notifications are showing, in the default channel no less, is frustrating and way too much noise. The fact that nothing is being done to allow hiding the notifications is beyond frustrating, this is kind of a no- brainer on must-have features....

All of the notifications really make starting a new team (and making changes later) a problem. If I add 100 people to the team, all they see are 100 notifications when they first access the team, and the first impression is that the team is annoying and probably useless. As I add files, modify the structure, and make other changes, more notifications pop up and clutters things even more. I even had an HR-related issue arise because I removed someone from a team and people raised questions about why he was removed. IMO this makes MS Teams almost unusable for my purposes, and I'm a communication director in a fortune 500 company.
remove (or hide) the notations under conversations of all the email addresses added ie: [8/9 12:41 PM] admin-Martin, Priscilla has added Matt Bekar (Guest) as a guest to the team.
From an adoption view,
We are a few weeks from rolling out Teams to all (250+), entire rollout will be via Teams i.e "My First Team" where they will have FAQ's, tutorials etc..
The first thing they will see is a channel with loads of posts about people joining the Team. Makes the first impression very bad.
Also agree with the examples and comments in the thread in general, this needs to be adressed asap, and a simple checkbox to toogle it on and off shouldnt be that complicated.
Its major issue that the business is being notified via teams that someone left the company before HR decides to send out a communication.

Adding my support to this issue. Very problematic for Teams with large membership such as Org Wide Team. There needs to be an option to turn of Channel posts about membership changes.

Please create a line to hide removing and adding people from teams.
The inability to remove members added to the Microsoft Teams is extremely frustrating. Conversations are delayed or missed related to the member list growth. I do not understand why customers do not have the ability to manage this feature to begin with and why time is now spent accessing this site requesting Microsoft to enable. Please remove this barrier for users!

This needs to have some action taken Microsoft. I agree with several of the comments that it becomes super annoying and takes away from conversations when you add / remove users to a Team.
Also for us it would be helpful to have a configuration item that let us switch off and on these type of messages.
As others have stated it makes an All Employees channel unusable. I can't imagine that Microsoft lives with this on their own internal Teams - the minute you see this happening it's obviously a train wreck.

Please fix this, new hires and exiting employees should be announced to the organization by management, not by Teams.
