How can we make Microsoft Teams better?

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".

        +1 for sending notifications via webhook to individuals

        April 16, 2018. That's when I started trying to get this 2 YEAR OLD issue recognised by MS. I'm a fool. Decided to opt for a 'best in class' approach to tools and will be moving from HipChat to Slack over MS. Maybe this issue will be fixed at some point but I doubt I'll go back. Slack functionality is more complete and has less performance etc etc issues.

        After recently implementing web hooks with MSTeams and our Case Management system, we are really missing by not being able to @mention relevant team members when their case assignments come through. Would love to know if there is any progress on implementing this feature?

        A month with no feedback, just like every other issue here. Microsoft: earth's least customer centric company.

        @Warren - please make sure that the @mention functionality is available for all connectors and other tools such as Flow to make sure the right people or departments/teams can be notified in a channel when an action is complete or has been assigned to them. This is not just a webhook requirement.

        i need this too, please upgrade it ......................................................!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

        @Warren - The lack of any meaningful communication on this has been disappointing bordering on calamitous. Please can you give an estimate (not a commitment just something so we know when to revisit this thread) as to when an update might be posted?

        I would also hope that that post would include a ball-park idea of when this feature will be implemented - 12months+ is a useful thing to know as Hipchat is about to convert to Slack and one way or another I will need this feature (currently with HipChat but want to be with Teams).
