When you have an all company team ... this is really badly needed ... isn’t that the whole soul of the product ... Teams ! ... and a company of any size is the best example of a Team ... but most people within an org don’t realise that 10% attrition is normal BUT the distraction this creates on a company wide or even BU channel is frustrating and unnecessary for managers to deal with. I am all for transparency but it is hurting adoption of the product within orgs because execs are not happy with displaying people departures at mass. Put a few check boxes in somewhere to configure this behaviour on a per group basis ... pleaseeeee !
This is surely one of the most annoying things about Teams! Drives me crazy. Please allow us to turn them off.
On mobile, the notifications are suppressed/hidden automatically. It would be awesome if the Windows app followed this same procedure and had a toggle or audit log only accessible by team owners.
+1 Seriously needed option.
Please implement so it can retroactively apply to an existing Team, i.e. when enabled, removes all the existing "[John Smith] joined the team" messages.

100%, just creates a lot of noise on org wide channels
I am with Dan Fluet on this one. It is proving as a Starter / Leaver announcement service in our Org team at the moment - there are more additions and leaver messages than actual user posts.
Why is this not a feature to begin with.... seems pretty straightforward and necessary to me. This needs to be added ASAP!

Too many notifications and not good when someone is terminated and a person is removed from the company.
We have a team with over 500 members, and users are added/removed on a daily basis, causing a feed full of noise that then prevents users from quickly seeing actual posts / updates. We need to be able to hide this in order for the feed to still be useful.

Main reasons for this feature request are "reduction of noise" in the General Channel as well as avoiding that other team members could draw potential conclusions of an employee leaving the company, because he/she left a team or was removed from a team.
This is especially problematic for large "Public" and "Organization" teams where people constantly join and leave.

Too many notifications.
León Hernández commented
When we have big teams that are connected to our active directory, members are constantly entering and leaving automatically on their vacations, is very annoyng and takes a lot of chat space and notification.

It is an important feature for public team that have thousands joiners.
