mark chat 'unread'

Is there a way to reset the chat from read to unread so it is bold and reminder to come back to it? Both on computer and mobile app? Mark as unread?

I am often wanting to see the chat but in a meeting. Hard to remember to come back to it.


unfortunately 'mark unread' is not a current feature. i've often wished it was, but i can see how it would be very difficult for Teams do know exactly what you are trying to mark unread... when you go into a space that has replies to older threads as well as new messages since your last visit, there are buttons to take you to the unread replies and new messages. if you were to mark a space unread, how would it know which activity you wanted it to mark unread? if you would just want it to put the notification dot back on the space and make the name bold, that wouldn't really help with what you need to review when you go back to it later.

some kind of 'mark unread' feature would be a good enhancement to submit, if one doesn't already exist.

    You can mark messages as Unread in Webex. Maybe they've added this feature since you posted.

    A workaround is to use the "Peek in space" option (right-click the space). This lets you read the space without marking it as read.
