  1. Code snippets

    I would like code snippets with highlighting based on code language. And for snippets longer than X lines, a "show more" button (like slack)

      Hi everyone, sorry for the long gap between updates. We’ve been diligently working on this feature, but its taken some time due to performance issues. We want to create this feature in a way that the additional libraries required to do the syntax highlighting don’t impact things like the channel switching and page load times.

      Here are some things you’ll be able to do with this feature:
      1. While authoring there you’ll have a dedicated code editor window which provides syntax highlighting, line numbering, etc.
      2. You can also choose to add a heading to the snippet before inserting.
      3. You can add snippets as cards into the message and can be expanded inline by the reader. The reader will see all the appropriate syntax highlighting as part of the card.

      We’re excited to roll this out for you — thank you for your continued patience!

      Sincerely,
      Suphatra

    • Developer API to read/create teams and channels in them.

      Slack has dev api to list teams/channels and perform bunch of management operations. It would be great if there's something similar available in Microsoft Teams as well.

      • Webhook needs to support forced notification a la "@channel", "@team", "@person"

        Webhooks should have a property to force notification a la "@channel", "@team", "@person". I have been using Slack webhooks for notifications out of our monitoring platform and can use "@" tags to make sure that the correct channels get the data and if the condition is severe, notify "@channel".

        • Fix Webhook API

          Post cards using https://dev.outlook.com/Connectors/GetStarted or https://dev.outlook.com/Connectors/Reference as reference don't give the expecting results.

          On Android:
          - "text" value isn't shown...

          On Windows 10, Android, Mac and iPhone:
          - "title" isn't format properly
          - "themeColor" isn't rendered
          - "potentialAction" aren't render like a button
          - "section" seems to work

          It could be very nice if the Webhooks is fully working and give the same result on every plateform.

          • gitlab connector

            There is a connector for GitHub but not GitLab.
            It would be nice to have this available as other git repositories are available.....

            • Support @ notifications in messages posted through web hook API

              We have automated messages posted to a channel and the @notifications are considered normal text and no actual notification happen. Since no one is notified of messages in channels to begin with (waiting for https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public-preview/suggestions/16911520-notifications-for-all-messages-in-a-channel to be implemented), we'd at least need notifications to work.

              • Allow to post a reply to a conversation via REST

                Currently it is quite easy to start a conversation via the webhook of a channel.

                It would be great if the POST of this webhook would return an conversation id. This id could then be used in a subsequent request to reply to the initial conversation.

                • Enable threading of Connector updates such as Webhooks

                  We've just finished building a webhook connector that will be giving us work item updates from our on-prem TFS. This is very exciting, however, every update comes in as a new thread. This is less exciting. We need the ability for, once a work item exists in a thread in the chat, for all work item updates pertaining to that work item to be threaded under that initial message. Otherwise, chaos. Perhaps the ability to arbitrarily define and ID for each webhook message, and when the same ID is re-used, it becones threaded?

                    This could make the switch from Slack or FLowdock a lot easier.

                        • Show URL previews for messages from Connectors

                          When I post a URL as a user, Teams automatically expands the message to include a URL preview. When a webhook posts the same thing, the URL remains plain text.

                          The webhook should be able to opt in to the same "unfurling" treatment that the user's message received.

                          Screenshots: https://stackoverflow.com/q/40415045

                              • Full API to write/receive messages so we can create new clients or integrate it into other tools

                                Slack has a full API, so people can write their own client apps or integrate Slack messaging into existing apps. Would be great to have something similar. Especially combined with giving external users access to Teams.

                                  Related to the recent "Forward an email to a channel".
                                  The full email is attached as an EML file. But it needs to be downloaded to read.
                                  Please build an EML file reader into the application and browser experience. It will be valuable to read the full email without downloading.

                                    • Create one client for both Yammer, Teams, Skype and Skype for business

                                      In our company we are using skype for business, teams, yammer as well as other communication tools. I would love to see one client where I can monitor and participate in all different channels. I have seen 3'd party tools for this that support slack, Skype, instagram and others.

                                      Having a client that brought all the different communication channels together for the O365 would be great. I think it could be done without taking away each channels advantage. I have seen that Yammer for example evaluates using skype for chat instead of yammer chat. Each service has it own set…

                                      • Remember two step verification like other services. Having to re-verify everytime I log back into the Teams app is horrible.

                                          Sorry you’ve had a hard time with the log in process, check with your IT Department as they may have control over this.
                                          Thank you,

                                          I want to be able to point someone to a message in Teams via a URL (aka a permalink). This would be particularly useful when used from outside Teams (e.g. From a wiki, or from an email, etc) but would have use within Teams too. We currently use MatterMost (an on-premises Slack clone) and sharing permalinks to messages is something that people do often.

                                          As far as I'm aware there's no way to get a permalink to a message from within the Teams desktop app, my request is that you make this possible. Thanks.
