The Activity Feed in Teams: Overview

            The Activity feed in Teams is a record of everything you and your teammates do in Microsoft Teams. It consolidates all the activity from your different chats, calls, channels, and teams into one place. As activity goes on in your channels, a red numbered icon will appear over the app to alert you to activity not yet seen.

            To view the Activity feed in Teams, click the “Activity” button in the app bar. Activities that have not yet been seen are marked in bold. The activity feed displays to whom the activity is linked, what type of activity it was (@mentions, likes, replies, etc.), and when and where it happened (chat, channel, etc.).

            You can filter the results by clicking the drop-down at the top of the pane to select from either “Feed” (to see all activity) or “My Activity” to see only yours. To further filter the activities, click the “Filter” icon at the top of the activity feed and type text by which to filter. For example, you can type someone’s name and any activity matching that criteria will be automatically displayed in the Activity Feed. You can also click the “More options” ellipsis in the “Type to filter” field and then choose an activity from the menu. For example, you could select “@Mentions” to see all activity where someone mentioned you specifically.

            To close the filter, click the “Close filter” button. To view an activity in the place where it happened, click the activity to view the details, which are then highlighted in the pane to the right. To mark an activity as unread, hover over it, click the “More options” ellipsis to the right of the activity, and select “Mark as unread.”
