Teams channel system messages

Teams will no longer show some of the system messages creating clutter in the General channel. When a user leaves or joins a team or something else happening in the team you will see a system message in the General channel and in some active teams this made that channel unusable. Microsoft published in the Message Center (MC215375) that they will change this and remove some of the system messages from the General channel.

I guess you recognise these messages about users joining and leaving a team, these are the system messages that will be no longer shown in the channel.

  • Rollout for standard release tenants will begin in mid-June and be complete in mid-July.
  • Rollout for government tenants should begin in mid-August and be complete by the end of August.

Instead you will be able to see these messages in the Information pane that you will be able to access from the “Channel info”.
