Allow admins to control Teams channel notifications for users
By default the notifications for channels are turned off for new users. This leaves the users clueless if there are any updates in the channels they are a part of. Either admins should be allowed to control this or by default the channel notifications should be turned on for users and later they can turn it on/off as they like.
I support this! We can't rely on everyone turning notifications on and unless they do, channels just won't get used.
It's also a huge waste of time to ask hundreds of people to do this - when the admin should be able to do it for them.
Fine for them to then be able to switch notifications off, but the should be on as default to start.
My team have even talked about other platforms as workaround - those of us coming from Slack are really missing it.
I totally support this idea.
Lots of people are new to using Teams and don't know how it works. Being able to make sure everyone receives an alert of some sort that there is new content is essential.
I agree that users should also be able to configure this themselves, but my users are all over 60 and don't remember to check Teams when new things are added because they don't know there is anything there to check!

Would love to have an admin option to turn on notification for all users per channel.
