Sometimes you might feel that a community in Teams is getting too noisy. Or sometimes you just want to be notified about everything. You can now do both in Teams free on Windows 11, Android and iOS as we have shipped community-specific notification settings. This new feature allows you to customize your community notifications for every community you are a member of. For larger communities you might want to tone these down and in smaller communities you can be notified for all activity if you wish. As the communities grow, you can change the settings anytime when needed.
For community owners managing their communities in Teams free on Windows 11 we have released an option to promote and demote community members. This option was previously available only on mobile and now it's available on Windows 11, too.

After selecting the option, tap Save to confirm the new setting. If you don't want to change settings, you can close this screen without saving the changes by tapping Cancel.

Promote and demote community members

You can promote community members to community owners and demote community owners to members by selecting the role in the drop-down menu. These changes are saved automatically and will take effect immediately.
