Agreed. Couldn't be a more unpleasant first view of a team for someone new.

Agree this needs to be something that can be set at an organization level. As we have user adds or terms we don't necessarily want this to be an automatic xyz joined team, removed from teams.
Or even something that says if the team size > X, suppress these organizationally vs by individual.

Has any progress made on this? We are still seeing those logs even after disabling all Notifications. @johnabooth
06-12-2019 01:38 AM
No updates here!
your notification settings won't affect this behaviour

Chiming in here, for me the inability to hide this feature has become very problematic. If I terminate an employee the entire organization finds out when I remove them from all AD groups thanks to Teams, this message is something that should be relayed to the organization by management, not Teams. The workaround for me has been to block access then remove them from all AD groups except for the teams channels.

@GaboJ The most stupid thing here is, that if you block the user from signing in - even tho you still leave him in the Groups - teams will display a message that User XYZ was removed from the Team.
So for me right now it is impossible to terminate employees in the normal way, because even if not officially announced everybody sees it in teams - huge gamebreaker I cant believe this is a thing,

At our company, we are wishing than more people would join the conversation on Teams channels.
However, beacause of these "XXX has removed from the channel", the geneal vibe that comes from it right now ressembles the one you'd get entering a skeleton desert.
@Someone from Microsoft, please see this thread and try to fix it, it has been more than a year that we have started to voice this issue, this needs to be resolved ASAP !!
Thank you !

Hi, does anyone know of a way to delete these entries in the conversation? We have a company wide Team which was set by my predecessor which shows people leaving the company, not very good. @Jacques Alexandre Bergeron

@Dean Gross , having this details in the general conversation flow is completely useless. If nobody leave or are added to the Team this should not be a problem. But when you have multiple people added,removed daily it contaminate other conversations. This kind of "history" should be available in the Team settings but not in the main conversation flow.
10-08-2019 05:34 AM
@Dean Gross The question is why is it there and why is there no option to hide it? In an organisation of around 1500 users there are always tens of users onboarding or offboarding almost on daily basis which is a bit unclean to see those logs.

This is a painstakingly absurd situation. Especially the fact that we cannot delete the text once it has been published. It's wild to me that company administrators cannot censor their own system content.
This is a quite dangerous feature that happens automatically and is completely undoable when adding or deleting high profile accounts.
Unbelievable it requires a popular vote to get this fixed.

Its hard to believe this thread has been open a year and there is still no update to it from Microsoft. Having an org wide team with one channel and seeing those anytime changes are made to AD accounts is problematic to say the least.

After a year of waiting for administrative features, we are now going to use that button that says "Open in SharePoint" at the top of the channel, and will need to send people to the SharePoint view when adding people to Teams channels. They will see a nice UI, well organized. Teams video calling works well, we use it all the time,

What is so frustrating Is that MS expects us to waste our time in this stupid vote system, but nothing gets done. No acknowledgement from MS nothing. Its a big slap in the face and honestly, Microsoft has lost all touch with reality when it creates a crippling and nonsense application such as teams.
Such garbage they put out then expect us to become the developers. Class action lawsuit would be awesome as Microsoft owes us Money for developing their software!

This is also a blatant violation of European GDPR legislation. Microsoft offers tools to comply with GDPR compliance but fails to hide such data in its own tools. It is really not opportune that employees already know the future employees and/or know who has left the company before a proper communication is possible. Surely it cannot be that the system already leaks such sensitive data.

Those notification settings only apply to changes of your personal team membership or roles. It has nothing to do with the message being shown in channels.

Lets face it ,
Teams is darn outright annoying. Its a nagging little annoying software that makes you really wish you were a programmer. Maybe that is why its so annoying, because even programmers cant fix the annoyances!
You don't need a P.H.D, you don't need to be some C# programmer or any other significant genius on this planet to understand this problem.
For over a year administrators of corporate america have voiced their great ideas to the deaf eared giant called Microsoft, on how to make these notifications a choice or even better yet, a configuration completely controlled by we the administrators who work for corporate america that pay the deaf eared giants bills.
This is what completely dumbfounds me. Such an easy fix and yet not only does the big giant have deaf ears, apparently it doesn't have a voice. We the people much more prefer a friendly giant with big ears and a big voice to let us know where our tiny ideas and voices are being sent.

All systems messages in Teams posts are quite annoying for users.
"John added a form"
"jack added a channel"
"Jim changed a channel"
people hate this
04-29-2020 11:21 AM
I have another take as well, when users leave our company our automation removes them from a channel. In some of the larger groups is depressing to see the sheer number of people "being removed from the channel" and to put some salt on the wound there is a bug where its randomly picking one of the owners so it says "<important VP> has removed <Terminated User> from this team" which my VPs are none too happy with. This should be a channel option if it includes adds if it includes removes, etc...

@ITEric Here's the UserVoice for it, need more votes though!
*edit* several similar has been merged into this one.
04-29-2020 11:44 AM
Perhaps I'd prefer to disable all that system spam at all, without any options. If VP would like to inform the team, he will write the post.
If with option, perhaps in meeting chat, where all "Sam joined the meeting", "Joe left the meeting" sometimes are quite annoying.

@plathrop Hello, I've previously read a post from an MVP in the community that this could be happening "when a change is made outside of teams a random owner is picked for that message". If accurate that's quite a bizarre behavior.
*EDIT* Just read this from MS regarding the "random owner"
"Teams has some background workflows today that perform actions on behalf of existing owners when syncing changes from Groups to Teams. There is planned work to move this to a system context so it will not show up as a random owner doing it. I do not know the timeline at this time."
05-20-2020 01:01 PM
@bec064 That explains some odd Teams behavior we have encountered since the last update. One of my team members was tagged as adding a user and then removing them, but they did neither of those actions. This thread was very helpful. Will go out and "Add my vote". to the User Voice posted above.

It is finally coming!
We are making it easier for your users to focus on relevant information in Teams by removing some system messages.
When this will happen @bec064
System messages, e.g., who has been added or removed from a team, will no longer be posted to the Channel pane. This will not affect compliance logs.
Review the changes and assess the impact for your organization. Additionally, you may consider updating your training and documentation as appropriate.

@Jacques Alexandre Bergeron Hello! Yes, finally. You might as well post the entire Message center info with the GCC part while you're at it!
