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.

In Microsoft Team, how to stop auto populate if someone join or leave the Team Group.

Would be very useful to optionally disable this feature. One chat I'm in is losing all "real" comments due to noise of people joining, not ideal..
yeah, I can image idea behind this, but now it makes very much mess when people come and go from a team. There should be way to disable this org wide.

Can we PLEASE get traction on this? Having just attended Microsoft Ignite, it is clear that you are VERY committed to MS Teams. Let's get this one pushed up the priority list and addressed.
As has been documented here a LOT, for an automated add or remove that is accomplished via policy or a script, it should NOT document this in a public settings - behind the scenes for us Teams Admins - sure - but not right IN the conversation for all to see!
Tom Patterson commented
Totally agree with the HR issues and the annoyance factor. It is really bad when someone is let go.
This definitely needs to be addressed, it's a huge annoyance to all our users of Teams.
Linda Dillon commented
This functionality just created a total HR nightmare for us. I can't believe that Microsoft hasn't disabled this. If it doesn't happen soon companies are going to abandon teams for sure!!
Beth Poplawski commented
This causes a great deal of clutter and, since the conversation tab is the first tab in the team and can't be moved, that's the user's first view of the team which can turn them off and lead to poor adoption.
Slack does this really well in 3 different ways...
1. Andy joined the Team
2. Andy, James, John and Geoff joined the Team
3. Andy and 493 others joined the Team
This is incredibly annoying and unprofessional, especially with org-wide teams. People are getting notified that someone leaves the company because their account has sign-in blocked. Please help us out here Microsoft.
This is really annoying and unacceptable. When we block someone's O365 login, Teams instantly lets the entire company know what's happened. PLEASE sort this. It is not up to Microsoft to communicate with everyone when someone leaves the company!
This is an major HR issue for us.
Jessie Sparrow commented
This is a concern for us as well, and we would like to be notified as soon as there is a fix.
Please remove or add option to hide
Linda Gilbert commented
These really needs to be hidden or only shown to Team owners in a history mode. This really does not need to be in the conversations thread.
Stuart Hyslop commented
This has proven an HR issue for us too. Please can we make this a global configuration option as soon as possible.
please provide option to rename General channel and option to cleanup all clutter notifications e.g user is joined, user has left etc...
please add this as an option under channel settings.
Clutters up the General channel, and I can't even hide the Channel from the Team.
Alison Hudson commented
I can't believe this hasn't been disabled yet. These messages are obnoxious and unprofessional, and they make me not want to use Teams to get things done.
