  1. Delete bot messages

    With the Polly bot, sometimes a member of one of my Teams will make an error while writing out a poll. Currently it is not possible to remove this poll, or, as far as I can tell, any message that is created by a bot.

    It would be great to be able to delete messages created by bots.

  2. Scheduled auto-post messages/notifications on channels

    Our teams posts routine updates/notifications on our channel (mainly posting who is the POC for the team on that day). It would be nice if we can schedule a specific message to be posted on specific timings (or even better if customizable messages for different timings) for automation.

    Putting this item under review so we can investigate the scenario. Currently you can use Flow to automate posting. DRI/POC can be maintained in a list or file and message can be sent to Teams channels at designated intervals. For schedules as mentioned you might also consider using the Shifts app inside of Teams. This would provide additional features like shift swapping, activity lists for each shift etc.

  3. Allow on premise bots

    By allowing bots which are hosted "on premise" (behind a company firewall), one allow to access systems from that company.
    This is the situation for many companies where the infrastructure or services which need to be reachable by bots is not on the public internet.

    Some scenarios:
    - A bot is running behind a company firewall
    - The bot connects to MS teams, joins a channel, and "listens" to conversations (outbound connection to the internet)

    This enables interactions like:
    - @bot, list defects (from an in-house issue tracker)
    - @bot, add capacity to applicationx (after an authorization phase, on-prem application…

  4. Add Cortana

    Imagine this chat conversation between two users:

    Patrick : Sales is doing great now...
    James : Yes but I wonder where we are growing?
    Patrick: @Cortana Show me revenue by country in October 2016
    Cortana: [Shows a graph with top selling countries with a link to the Power BI report]
    James: @Cortana What product sells best in Sweden?
    Cortana: [Answers with text] "Superduper Sport Shoe" has most revenue in Sweden for October 2016.

    Now imagine adding in a bot that can answer questions about inventory or even a procurement bot...

    This feature request is still being worked upon.

    I am still trying to get details on what we could expect for Cortana in Teams and will share examples once something is available.

  5. Remove Bot Mention Requirement

    It seems as though currently all bots only work if you @mention them, so my assumption is that this is a requirement of the api used to develop the bots.

    Many people from my organization are used to IRC/Slack style bots where an explicit @mention isn't required for bots to parse a message and respond.

    Sometimes there is fun functionality that can be added for a lot of bots and having to @mention a bot really detracts from the user experience of some bots.

    I can also see this getting out of hand when using a lot of bots, so…

  6. Add Music Bot

    In the Discord app there is a "Rhythm Bot", when you bring it into the chat it plays music (based on which rhythm bot you bring in). Each user is able to mute the bot individually if they don't want to hear the music.

    This is really great when friends are working together for a while and just want some background noise while in the meeting. I was also in a large training meeting recently for Power BI where we were given tasks to work on by ourselves during the call and it would have been nice to have something…

  7. Ability to set a scheduled notification (alarm) to go off in a channel or chat via T-Bot

    It could be nice to have T-Bot remind a channel or chat at a certain time about something. Been a couple situations where I am in a chat with multiple people and we schedule an informal meeting and forget about it. T-Bot could do reminders for things in channels.

    Scrum Master: "Remember to update your tasks (4:00PM)"
    Me: "Remember our meeting at 4PM"

  9. Make Polls / Surveys / @Polly - Native / Integrated in the product

    Surveys were added to the product through 3rd part integration using Bot @Polly. However, as mentioned by some of the users, companies block bots due to their policies and on top of that, the bot asks to access some user information and no one mentioned if it is covered by the same privacy, security, compliance standards that we expect with our subscription to office 365?

    It would be much better to have it as a native feature

  10. Ms teams Mobile and Bot Framework: sending images

    We're facing troubles because the documentation explicitly says that file exchange between ms-teams bots and users is not supported on Mobile.

    Is 2020 Why to avoid file exchange interaction in ms teams for Mobile, when all major competitors supports this feature since time ago?

    Rather than offering value to the user this is the opposite. A wide set of escenarios are blocking adoption because for some reason ms-teams doesn't offer support for a feature that is considered a minimum requirement for a collaboration platform.
    We should remember that teams isn't about chat -- like skype -- where the expectation is…

  11. Integration of Microsofts Q&A bot into team-channels

    Microsoft has a Q&A bot-maker.
    There should be the possibility to create/integrate a Q&A bot within a channel/team.
    The Q&A bot should scan questions in the channel and answer questions that where previously already answered.

  12. Polls

    Please add the poll feature in the chat. At work, we use Teams as an internal communication tool instead of the email. Sometimes we need to vote for some ideas. For it we have to create a separate Form. I was wondering how it would be wonderful, if creating poll feature was in the chat.

  14. WhoBot: Find users by location, deparment, or job title.

    The Who bot seems like a natural place to find such information, but currently it doesn't understand questions like "Who works in accounting?" or "Who works in Moline?"
    Please add the ability to find users by criteria such as Office Location, Department, Job Title, or even Address (i.e. City or State.)

  15. BOT support for Suggested Actions

    Currently Teams does not render Suggested Actions (while it does support various Cards).

    Enable the support/render of Suggested Actions to provide simple predefined choices/answers to the user.

  16. whitelist specific bots

    We would like the ability to whitelist specific bots at an organisation level, so that users can only add/use approved bots.

    At the moment if bots are enabled there are no restrictions on which bots users can use. We've had to disable bots at this stage due to this missing functionality which is available in products like Facebook for Work

  17. Who Bot integration with Delve skills and what can you ask me about

    The Who bot is AWESOME. I noticed that it doesn't access the skills or what can you ask me about from Delve. This would be an easy way to get some positive hits and jumpstart its use for orgs that are just getting started in teams. It would also be nice to point teams to this as a 100% hit with loose conversations in teams in a separate section or an option to "include channel conversations in bot results". This would help to replace a lot of "who can I ask sheets" in the office.

  18. Azure DevOps Work Item Discussion Integration with Microsoft Teams

    I would like to configure or replace the Discussion field in the Azure DevOps work item to integrate with a​ channel conversation in Microsoft Teams.


    ​A basic implementation would be to connect a discussion and conversation 1:1.


    ​Another option would to be update the thread where an Azure DevOps bot was added to the conversation thread. Any replies to that bot would also appear in the discussion of the work item.

  20. Polly highly inadequate as polling solution

    The Polly offering for Teams is in beta. They don't have simple things like multiple choice answers, recasting a vote, retracting your vote or even deleting a poll that was created.

    Poor choice for a polling solution.
