The new Read Receipt* feature is missing an important administrative setting.

 

There current settings are:

  • User Preference (DEFAULT): members of the tenant get to decide if they want read receipts ON or OFF. Default within the app is ON. Users can then turn it OFF.
  • Everyone: everyone in the tenant will have the feature ON with no option to turn it off.
  • Off: no one in the tenant has read receipts nor can they turn it on.

 

The missing setting is

  • User Preference (Default: off): Members of the tenant get to decide if they want read receipts ON or OFF. Default within the app is OFF. Users can then turn it ON.

 

Please add this. Also, for when the global setting is set to User Preference (DEFAULT), give administrators the option to change any specific user's setting via PowerShell.

We will see if they update these settings when the feature is actually released!

 

Otherwise it's a good example of a uservoice request:

@adam deltinger  This is a feature that should be provided before its shipped. The current solution is not flexible enough, and may I remind you about Clutter or Focused Inbox? That's why this shouldn't be on UserVoice, but rather a habit while developing stuff.
