  2. 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...

    working on it  ·  Warren responded

    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. 'Who'-Bot: Marking messages as 'helpful' for more qualified "Who knows about..." answers.

    The 'Who'-Bot brings a feature to search colleagues with specific knowledges.
    'Who' therefore answers a "Who knows about..."-question with a list of Team users.
    This knowledge of one user seems to be based on the users posts with the keyword given in the "Who knows about..."-query.
    Therefore it would be great to be able to mark posts/chat message as 'helpful' or mark a message as 'verified answer'. Then only users who wrote helpful messages to a topic are listed in a result of a "Who knows about..." question.
    Alternatively you could emphasize these users in the result set.

  7. Mark 'Bots' which require paid services or additional licencing

    Bot's are great additions for new functionality, but when we added a number of bot's we then received 1:1 messages from the bots advising we needed to purchase the services or licences to utilise them.

    We then removed these bots, but this requirement is not clear when our users add bots to the Channels. It also at times posts the licence requirements into the Channel itself, which causes more confusion.

    We would like to have an icon stating 'Paid' (or something similar) next to Bots in the add-in menu which require licences or payment for the functionality. This will prevent…

  8. cross platform bots integration feasibility

    Can we register cross-platform BOTs (Ex. Developed in Python) with Microsoft Teams? We are looking for a feasibility to add our in-house BOT to Teams so that there will be a one-stop for communicating with friends or with BOTS.

  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. Give OneNote Slash Commands for Maximum Onenote-Teams Integration

    I've seen multiple requests here for integration with OneNote, and I think the best solution would be a combination of logical integrations with OneNote and slash commands or even a bot. In terms of slash commands, these come to mind:

    - /one textsearchhere: Let users search OneNote from directly within Teams and see a preview of/results from within the team's primary OneNote; users can then insert that directly into a conversation for easy knowledge base referencing.

    - /onenew Title of Note Here: Let users start a note from directly within Teams with a simple slash command that, when activated by…

  11. Add speech to text option to chat interface

    We use a chat bot via Teams only because the bot can authenticate the user against the id returned via the Teams API. We would like to add a speech based interface which is proving very difficult given the need to authenticate against AD. But if the Teams chat interface had the microphone button as per the Bot Web Chat interface this would be out-of-the-box functionality.

  12. Add more languages to bots (for example Who-bot)

    Who-Bot in Teams is great, but it would be even greater if it could speak different languages, like Norwegian. ;)

    This bot doesn´t understand that many commands, so translating it shouldn´t be too difficult.

    It would help user adoption if people could use their native language.

  13. Use Bot by Guest

    I want to use Bot from Guest account at Microsoft Teams.

    Currently, Bot does NOT response to Guest accounts.
    Tenant account can chat Bot,
    But Guest account can NOT do it.

    I hope to chat Bot at our channel

  15. 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. bots get all messages in channel

    Allow bots to receive all messages in a channel they've been authorized on, even if they aren't explicitly mentioned.

    This allows the ability for the bot to proactively provide help in the context, like expand ticket numbers when they're mentioned etc.

  18. Support rendering of tables within cards

    It would be helpful to be able to render tables of values as part of the content of cards pushed into Teams via the connector/webhook functionality.

  19. 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.

  20. Send attachments to a custom chat bot

    Want to be able to send files for my bot (not just images from mobile app) and attach them on a message directly on a chat with my bot. It can allows us to provide better solutions with our chat bots.
