Remove notification when you leave a team
It would be nice if you could have a person leave a team without it showing that they have left the team. Sometimes you do not want to offend the Team Leader or just want to quietly exit a annoying team.

Has there been any progress to this?

We have an organization wide team which adds to it every single created account (including test and service accounts... it's annoying). The log also shows people that we remove, because they have been fired. Not everyone should know about it. This is a HR issue.

A simple default behaviour would be to hide notifications for "members" of a team and only show it for "owners
This is very frustrating when people leave the organisation, which notifies the whole team ahead of communications.
These notifications drown out messages and even for moderately sized team, hinder the General channel. Someone else has also pointed out that the competition, such as Slack, allows you mute these messages, and you also have an HR issue about confidentiality / privacy (particularly where people have been let go, or key staff members resign).
1. You have channels - why not use one for leavers / joiners / group membership if you must do this?
2. Recommend that a Team is only used for 4-8 people to stop the flood of messages.

This option when adding or removing members would be great. We are a University (UNSW in Australia) looking to setup a link between our enrollments system and MS Teams for teaching purposes.
Avoiding these messages would help to ensure the privacy of our students and spam in the main channel for larger cohorts where there might be a lot of add/drop activity.
Please add this feature. Please vote if you're reading this!
Yes agree - would be great to have these notifications an option - as we add as many as 200 members at one time and can have the notification take up most of the main channel and then scrolling through to find current content.
As a follow on, sometimes we have to remove people from our team and we really don't want to announce to all the others that we have 'pushed them out'. As far as these announcements go, it would be great to have a checkbox that says "let the team know" or something similar so that you can mute these announcements if/when necessary.
