  1. Notification for Planner Tasks

    Planner and Teams just needs a notification - when a task has been created for an assigned user that user should receive a notification - currently we are doing a work around by starting a conversation with a mention of a member name
    thanks

    • 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.

      • Assign members to channels

        I might have a team called IT and channels of IT projects. So assigning members to channels would be great, since it's not the same for each project (channels).

          Hi everyone, can you provide more information on this request? I want to understand if this is the same ask as the ask for public/private teams, or if this is the common issue we get with people unaware they can invite people into a team using a distribution list email address. If you can respond to the thread here or tweet to me at @skprufo, that’d help a lot!

        • Allow adding bots to channels

          We have a "passive" Slack bot that listens on allowed channels and provides some useful commentary on what's happening. In Teams I can neither add bot to channel (at all), nor does it receive any messages when added to private group conversations.

          (I remember the same issue with bots in Skype, actually)

          • Skype chat - both ways

            If someone write from Skype, I can read and answer, but I cant start a chat with Skype users.

              It looks like some people in the thread below have figured it out — we actually have this. You can start a chat both ways; the system will automatically recognize if this person is on Skype for Business or on Teams.

              Thanks and let me know if you have any questions.

              • Needs Email notification

                Need a feature like Skype, so that when someone is not logged in, they get email notification if someone sent the a message they missed.
                should also be able to minimize conversations, so that unless they are expanded or active, you only see the original message.

                  We currently send email notifications for missed chat messages or @-mentions in channels. Please let us know if this isn’t working for you and we will troubleshoot. Please note, we currently do not send email notifications for any missed message in a channel – this is a requested feature that is in our backlog.

                • 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.

                          • 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".

                                • 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?

                                  • 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.

                                      • Multi-company groups

                                        I really like Microsoft Teams, but i think it could be better working with people from any company using this app.
