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.
The team is reviewing this item and discussing potential short term and long term solutions for this. Thanks.
Please remove the add/remove notification from the main chat area.
I believe this might also be a breach of GDPR - with no way to remove these system posts, it's impossible to respect confidentiality of when people change their personal status, as may well be indicated by joining or leaving a team or channel.
Please remove the add/removal notification.
Users added to team line removed - Why has this not been addressed yet? It's completely unprofessional and this should not be visible in the main chat threads. It could be a member history section that the group can view separately, but it deters engagement on the main channel, especially when the chat is bolded with an update after EVERY PERSON joins or leaves.
This needs to be hidden or be able to remove. Too much clutter
The Microsoft Teams app for iOS just doesn’t show these “user added”, “user removed”, “description changed”, “channel renamed”, etc audit information.
Short term fix: make the Teams desktop and web apps do the same then. Just stop showing them! Then figure out how to make them available to Team Owners as a long term change.
This one has been opened for almost 3 years, please do something quickly to hide these audit records from showing up in the channels.
This needs to be addressed. If an administrator removes a user from the team, it should NOT show in the general channel.
An easy solution here would be to change the name of GENERAL to Logs then allow us to choose a different landing zone/channel for all members
This would be really useful - changes to Teams structure are sometimes sensitive and it would be better if we could avoid advertising them to every member of the Team if possible! Thanks!
Please make this possible asap. Thank you

Please make it possible soon
Please make it possible to opt out of posts on any channel. Most system generated posts are not value added. The product would be more useful with flexibility to configure. Please also make it possible to hide a General channel.
I am now no longer deactivating leaving staff to prevent this from happening. No doubt my Microsoft true-up is going to be out of whack again...
Can we pleased get this pushed along?!?! I had to term someone today and AGAIN, this is how people are finding out. This looks bad for our company, for HR, for IT admins...Can the admin here tell us what we need to do to get this escalated ASAP? I'd like to be more proactive than just commenting in a thread of 500 comments.
makes for a very unprofessional rollout
When our IT Team removes/recycles a user's account after they have left the company, it will sometimes say that one of our VPs removed the user instead of the IT admin doing the work. The optics of this is not ideal and it could lead to a decrease in moral or unnecessary gossip.
Is there a way to remove the add/removal notification all together? There should be an option to post or not post the activity.
I've always just put up with this so far, but I just created a new org-wide team. And then went through and removed all the fake users, test users, and irrelevant users. And now the first view of that team is a string of junk notifications. I would like to be able to remove them as a team owner, but generally just leave them as they're normally fine.
A very valid point is that if you remove a user account, that user will 'leave the team' in an org-wide team. Very pointedly. Even if they're fired and people don't know they've left, they will, often before we want them to. So we'd also like to be able to turn this off for particular teams.
Short term, I'd like to be able to delete the posts individually, even one by one.
We wish to use Teams for remote interviewing by inviting candidates as guests. The inability to turn off / delete or make visible only to owner / selected member means that all candidates could view the email address of others in 'General'. Same thing with inviting our customers as guests, their competitor contacts are visible.
I don't list all the email addresses individually when I CC a group by email but Teams does !
Underwhelming that this issue is evident since 2018.
Zoom for the interviews.

for me and my organisation, as the owner it appears that I am removing people. Not the best look when the company goes through re-structures etc and this is being plastered across the Org-wide team.
Agree 100%, those notifications are very annoying. This should be an optional feature to be set up on the specific Project Team group by owners, or completely removed.
