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".

        Feature was requested more than 2 years ago, "under review" for 5 months. What's going on, @warren?

        @warren, Any update on when this feature will be released. It's preventing us to migrate from Slack to Team.

        This is the only feature preventing our company from using Teams for build & deployment notifications, we would love to have this!

        This is a really important feature for using teams channels to notify the team (say by using @General) only on certain messages and not on others. It would be great if you can provide a work around till the main feature is built. Thanks!

        +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.
