- What is the definition of “Recent” within Microsoft Teams?

- What actions/events (viewed, modified, moved, etc.) are caused file to be marked “recent”?

- When (timing) do files get marked for recent? When do recent files show up on the Recent list?

- How are recent files gethered or aggregated?

I believe Teams is simply using the same APIs used in Groups and SPO...so this information is provided by the Graph

 From the Microsoft Teams internal Help:

 

"The Recent view shows you every Office 365 document you’ve viewed or edited in recent history."

 

So is the recent list in Teams determined by last X documents in Y days?  What is the value of X and Y?

Thank you
