When I click on the Activity feed the top item instantly marks read

  • but I may not want that to happen, as I may be going into the Activity feed to look for something else
  • I'm constantly marking it unread like I'm having a battle with the software which keeps marking it read...arrrrgh


Another thing - Just say I mark a post unread.

  • Then later on I'm scrolling through a channel (and the post I earlier marked as unread so happens to live in this channel), and I scroll by it as I look for something else.
  • This has now marked the post read, and I didn't want this to happen, as I did not read it at all, I quickly scrolled past it. I still want it marked unread so I can get to it later when I have time

Basically - often when I go to my Activity feed, posts that I marked unread, are no longer unread, and I want them to still be unread

 

I posted this on UserVoice

@John Tropea Make use of Save ribbon on messages, this will keep it for you to come back to and read later. I do wish activity feed worked more like the mobile client thou where it only goes to the post itself instead of the place in the channel and in turn marking multiple messages as read. Pretty sure I shared with with Microsoft, but I'm def. going to vote for this because I think it should work that way as well, or at least have an option to choose Activity Feed behavior.

Great Chris - thx for the vote, and if you get a chance share your comment on UV about the multiple posts going unread at the same time scenario

I do use the save button, but then forget about it - if the save button was an icon under the activity bell I'd probs use it.

...and also like to see a list feature in "saved" eg posts I've saved to read when I get time, posts saved that I need to action, posts saved where I'm waiting for a reply, etc..

- it would be good if you could send a post to To-Do or Planner

You can build this with message extensions with certain actions like creating a planner

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoftteams/platform/concepts/messaging-extensions/create-extens...

Would be nice to have some actions built in native though

Adam you just got me very excited...I have a few customers asking for a way to manage posts they need to action

Have a look at our latest teams meet where there is a session with @Rick Van Rousselt showcasing this a bit:

@John Tropea
Did you ever find a solution or workaround for this? We have been fighting the same battle ever since its inception and I am not seeing anything on the development roadmap that addresses this issue. Unfortunately, your UV topic only has 4 votes, one of them being mine.

no haven't seen anything unfortunately
