Read receipt in conversation - see who has read a post in a channel
Now I post a message in a thread/conversation, but I have no idea how many has read it.
This feature request is being reviewed by the feature team. No new details to share at this time.
Meanwhile, feel free to share why you need this in class teams / staff teams, and what you need to see (ie # read / list of users read / timestamp of read) and for what purpose.

Yes! It is useful to see who has read a conversation post. Please encorporate this feature in Classroom Teams.

For us it is necessary feature. If we want to communicate with whole school and for example our director wants to send a message for all student, he needs to know, how many of them have read it.
It would be really useful if I can see how many students in my team have read my conversation posts. Could this option be made available?
Yes! Or claim that they didn't see a message about homework, as they do in my experience.
I'm shocked that this has not been incorporated in Teams from the start. As well as, how this article has not gathered more attention.
This is a feature that almost all messaging platforms have, it is not a new idea by any means. If people don't want read receipts, the simple option to turn it on and off would be great. The simple fact to see who your message has reached is necessary for our team.

It would be nice to see who has seen a conversation or accessed a Team or channel.
I think is very important that group owner can see who has read the post in the conversation

I think this is a good idea. However i think it should be able to be turned on and off for administrators. Additionally maybe only allow certain people to view read messages, like a manager for instance.
When I post a new message or announcement in a team, especially the ones with students, I would like to see who read the message so they cannot say they've read it but actually didn't. :)
