Activity feed basics

Select Activity Activity button to see your Activity feed, a summary of everything that's happened in the team channels you follow. You can also select Filter Filter button to show only certain types of messages such as unread messages, @mentions, replies, and likes.

When a red circle appears next to Activity Activity button , you have a notification such as an @mention or a reply that you can see in your feed.

Notes: Another way to check your notifications is to use the command box at the top of Teams.

  • Type /unread to see your unread channel notifications.

  • Type /mentions to see all your @mentions.
