Using Filters to find stuff quickly

Want to speed up finding specific Activities in your feed as well as specific Chats, Teams and Channels? Use the Teams filter (shown below) or use the Ctrl+Shift+F shortcut. The filter function allows to quickly find relevant entry by name; for Chats it also allow to quickly find muted, hidden and unread entries with ease.

Cancel read receipts

By default, every time you read a message in the Chat application, Teams places a small icon next to the message. This helps the sender acknowledge that you have read their message. You can cancel read receipts in the Privacy tab of your Teams Settings.

Leave a Team

If you see no benefit in being part of a team, you can easily exit. Hit the More Options button next to the team you would like to leave and pick Leave the Team.
