  1. 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.

    • 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.

      • Drive mode no longer available?

        I was happily using Drive mode on my commute to work, only to find it's now disappeared from the iOS app - has anyone else experienced this?

        Spoke with our o365 admin team and they say that they've not changed anything to block it

        • FindTime bot for Teams

          Would be nice to have a FindTime bot.

          Like we have the @forms bot for quick creation of polls.

          Meeting polls thru FindTime and Teams would be great.

          • Where did T-bot go?

            I liked the T-bot. Where did it go? I cannot find it in Teams any longer.

            • Make a bot to track gold stars given to team members.

              Simple bot to give meaningless gold stars to millennial employees like myself who derive value from just such empty gestures.

              Example would be

              Manager: "Star bot give @mikey 3 gold stars"
              Bot: "Way to go! 3 gold stars given to @mikey"

              Manager: "5 Gold stars to @Hufflepuff"
              Bot: "Finally some recognition for my buds in @Hufflepuff"

                • Bot menu doesn't appear on iOS Teams

                  Currently in the Teams iOS app, my bot menu doesn't appear like it does in the desktop or web app.

                  • Support adaptive cards on mobile consistently

                    When using adaptive cards for teams, our images are scaled to stretch, even though we want to use auto. Also, the Action.Submit to delete message through bot framework does not work to delete the message on mobile, but works fine on desktop. Overall, mobile experience is not consistent.

                          • 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.

                            • adjustable timeout on the outbound webhook reply (5 seconds not long enough)

                              Currently if you use a outbound web hook to integrate with another system like a custom bot the time given for a response is only 5 seconds, that a fine default, but it needs to be adjustable so that bot/services that do some work before responding has time to do so. I would say up to 2 mins (the http standard timeout) though a recommendation to not go over 30 seconds for resources could get strained. You would need to put a max currently open connections from a user, team or channel to prevent some pretty horrid resource starvation attack…

                              • Allow Bots but not other 3rd Party Apps

                                Allow Bots but not other Third Party Apps

                                There recently was a new setting added to "Enable/disable default apps". There is a product limitation though in that Bots are considered 3rd party apps but if one disables sideloading then the 3rd party default apps can't be enabled/disabled.

                                We would like to be able to both sideload bots and prevent the use of other 3rd party apps!

                                • 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.

                                  • 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…

                                    • Daily standup like howdy.ai for Slack

                                      I'd like to see a bot that asks team members questions at a scheduled time each day and posts the answers to a channel. This could work like howdy.ai for Slack.

                                        • 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…
