I noticed that some members of my teams have a lot of bold text on their screen indicating unread messages. We are all busy and sometimes we lose track of things and unread messages build up. Users then have to dive through channels and chats and click to mark them as read. This can make Teams off-putting to some people and discourage them from using the app.

Is there a way to 'Mark All Messages As Read'?

no function like that...
there was more discussion about this in community, you can search them but will get the same result...
it's annoying to me as well, but reasonable for management

@SeanS we also have this problem where some Teams channels receive alert notifications from systems. Sometimes a LOT of alerts are generated and the Activity feed is spammed up with dozens of unread notifications that realistically will never be cleared because the user has to click on each on individually.

 

A "mark all as read" button would be a great help.
