MS Teams saying users have removed other users when they haven't
We are having an issue in our Teams environment at present where some teams will randomly remove users and say stuff like.....
" User1 has removed User2 from the Team. "
The issue is that the User's who have apparantly removed those other users from the team have stated they did no such thing. This isn't limited to just 1 team or 1 user either its happened a few different times.
Has anyone else seen a similar thing or anyone know of any fix?!

Our understanding is that this is due to the Teams system detecting someone is no longer valid/active as an IT account.
The alert message needs to at a minimum indicate that this was an automated process triggered event. Makes sense to notify an owner the action was taken (as a cross check) but to say that the owner took the action of removing the person is only going to cause confusion.
This has occurred several times in our environment and appears to randomly assign an owner's name to the running log of activity. Per MS Support, they are actively working on this...
"whenever there's a change in the local AD or that affects the users in the local AD such removal or addition the changes sync's to Teams and is represented as a Team Owner, member or even the Global admin removes or added the user"
Please work on this ASAP, as this is affecting my organization.

Same in our Tenant. It's getting really annoying but also dangerous from a legal standpoint. Please fix this immediately.

We have similar after a user separates from the company. I like the feature, but many users don't like the wording. It says Joe (owner) has removed Jane (seperated user) from Team. but this doesn't look good to owner, make them look like a Meanie.
Can the wording be changed to SYSTEM has removed Jane from TEam. or even JAne has been removed... we don't like how it points out owner, we had at least 10 owners call us and complain. SEe attached.
