No notification noise for messages to yourself/immediately marks as "Read"

Contributor

Today I started playing with the new feature of being able to send yourself a message in Teams. So far, however, I am not finding a way to update the notification settings for those messages to yourself. i.e., if I send myself a message from my phone, I want it to show unread so it's "actionable" to me when I get back to my desk, for example.

 

I can hover over a message to myself > Click the ellipses and choose to Mark as Unread, but as soon as I navigate away from my chat of course, it marks it as read and is no longer "bold/black" on the left to get  my attention later. 

 

Is this by design or am I missing something?

 

Thank you,

Morghan

I seem to be able to mark it as Unread, but in any case I wouldn't consider this method reliable for note keeping. That said, this is the initial iteration of the feature, so the experience might improve over time.
