Teams gets new little features all the time. The latest of those is one that has been long awaited. Ability to turn off notifications in a single discussion thread.
This feature seems to be still rolling out since there is some notifications despite the setting in the thread.
It is not once or twice when I have been participating in a long-running thread of conversation. I have written a single comment and rest of the discussion haven’t been that relevant to me since. Yet, I get notifications when people reply to the same thread. Now you can turn those notifications off. Control your Team’s noise!
However, you will be notified in case someone @Mentions you or reacts to your message in the thread. But at least I won’t be getting notifications when people reply to the thread..
And it is good to remember: in case you really need someones opinion: use @Mention.
I know I will be using this feature a lot. A true notification saver.
Turning on notifications
This feature also works on the other way around: turning on notifications on specific threads to follow the discussion. You don’t have to participate in the chat with a message, but you can do the following “discreetly” with this feature.
