New feature, Updated message, User impact




Updated December 14, 2021: We have updated the rollout timeline below. Thank you for your patience.
Users will be able to control the type of notifications that appear in their activity feed. Right click on the feed item, and you will be able to turn on/off all reactions or stop specific app notifications from surfacing in the activity feed.
A key user pain point in activity today is that important information is getting buried and there is just too much noise. Reaction and App activities are one of the top culprits and the ability to turn them off is a top 3 ask from our users. These controls been always been available in Global Notification Settings, yet we continue to hear feedback on this from users due to it's low discovery.
This calls for a feature that would empower users to intuitively control their notification experience for certain activity feed items by leveraging the existing notification settings. Hence, as a part of the MVP for contextual notification settings, we are building the following features that would enable users to control certain notification settings directly from the activity feed item:
turn on/off reactions directly from the activity feed
turn on/off notifications for a specific app directly from the activity feed.
This message is associated with Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID 88400.
[When this will happen:]
This feature is currently in Public Preview.
We expect to begin the Standard Release roll out in mid-January (previously mid-December) and expect the rollout to be fully completed by late January (previously late December).
