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!

@Jacques Alexandre Bergeron Thanks for this!
But.. It's August, and I am on a standard tenant, and I still see all the adds and removes for users in Teams. I noticed the UserVoice says "Under review".
Has anyone actually seen that this has been implemented?

Oh, that's mid November demo. It took time to deploy. But yes, notifications are still in main channel as well.

@Dean Gross - Seriously? We have some teams with 1000+ users in the team. They are assigned to the team by dynamic Office 365 group. Guess what? If you change the rule, every user is removed and then added back into the Team site as they should be since the rule is updating the users, but each and every user notification is registered in the Posts window view and anything that was there of any importance that was actually a chat message or file posting is blown up the page never to be seen again. Is this the experience that you guys are Microsoft were after, because this is the experience me and my end users have to face. How about building a switch into the product so we can turn the blasted notifications off in the Posts feed for user addition and removal? Simple questions, looks like years of no solutions for the folks who have been here posting, patiently waiting. I'm a bit perplexed by this new vote to have a bug fixed notion. Doesn't seem to be working very well.

@Chris Webb thanks for the update Chris, and that is good news for everyone on this thread and I would imagine a whole bunch of other folks who don't take the time to participant in open forums like this one. Hopefully we will have a notification message in the platform when they release the option and it will be conspicuous enough to get the word out when it is available. In the event it may not be, I will be watching this thread to see when it becomes available as I am sure it will be noted here. Thanks again, appreciate the help.

This may come off a bit cross but I dont really mean for it to as I have nothing but respect for the Teams Team.
However there is the growing frustration I have sometimes with the new Microsoft. I mean, to be clear I like the new Microsoft, agility is awesome.
That said, you say this feature is rolling out, well its been rolling out for months, why does it take so long?
Next up, I wanted to point out that you suggested something that isn't possible, moderation in the general channel is not possible (only in other channels which I dislike as a design choice).
Last point of frustration, you should not suggest someone not use the general channel. Teams are bound by purpose, audience, and access at the team level not the channel level. This is just how teams is designed. Too many people confuse channels for anything more then a topic filter.
I only mention all of this because I don't feel even Microsoft staff sometimes understands how Teams was designed, how it currently is designed, nor is always correct on how its going to be designed. I hope someone in the Teams leadership group can recognize that internal training and better communications is paramount to running at this level of agility.

"How about building a switch into the product so we can turn the blasted notifications off in the Posts feed for user addition and removal?" Sorry, I forgot who succinctly expressed it. This was perfect.
We have HR trying to create channels that have the membership completely hidden from all but other members, including the owners of other channels within the parent Team. Can't do it. There's no way to prevent broadcasting the names of everyone who wants to join the "Cognitive Disability Support Group" or "LGTB Community". Moving the data to an information pane doesn't solve that issue--we need anonymity. So we cannot use Teams for this purpose.

Just yesterday all that spam disappeared from General channel (org wide Team), returned back today and see it again. Some random processes are in backend.

That's not only Teams, entire deployment works such way - update on update disable previous update and you never know you are in the pool to which update is applied or not.
