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".
This feature request is now under review.
I’ll update this topic as we move through the decision process. Thank you for the suggestion.

Ok... So I've contacted O365 Support (again) and they can't get hold of the MS Teams team directly or otherwise, even via management structure (crazy I know). I've tweeted MS Teams and had no response.
I've clicked on the 'star' in bottom right and got nothing back.
My last attempt at getting someone to respond to this has been to duplicate this request here (https://microsoftteams.uservoice.com/forums/555103-public/suggestions/35204041-webhook-needs-to-support-forced-notification-a-la) and hopefully that will trigger someone somewhere to actually look at this.
If this doesn't work does anyone have Satya Nadella's number?
Mike Menne commented
Maybe I should go back to Slack...

@Warren (if anyone know's how to actually poke people on this platform please poke 'Warren' @ MS as he seems to be curating the list).
From what I can tell this is the only item on the first 6 pages of User Voice that doesn't have a status. Please can someone add this!
This is a necessary feature. please add it.
MS, you need to hurry up and add this in as a feature!
This is very strange that is feature is not supported for webhooks.
It prevents me for implementing a pretty usefull things for the Team (especially considering that Microsft Graph API is still in beta)
Need this badly !!!

Shocked this isn't actually a feature of webhooks..... coming from using Slack, Hipchat, and other chat tools and didn't even think MS teams would be missing something SO SO basic... can live without some of the ChatOps integrations for now but seriously can't do basic mentioning notifications from a webhook? what point does a webhook even serve but to notify specific users of activity from another system?
Yes please - necessary.
There is some estimated date for this? That is like one of the most important features a tool like teams should have.
Adam Klaves commented
Please add this feature. Most of our customer have MS Teams, few have Slack. My only solution is to push our customers to Slack for Notifications which supports this functionality.
Antoine Malliarakis commented
Actually this feature is exactly what we would need on our side. For basic gamification or bot processes it's a must have !
James Musson commented
@Tim Reilly - I had exactly the same thoughts! It makes the integration features of Teams somewhat limited if you can't notify via a WebHook. We are trying to get build notifications from TeamCity into Teams and this is a blocker.
Tim Reilly commented
Argh. I just assumed I was doing it wrong, not that it is impossible. Webhooks are the most common/flexible way of passing in data, Teams is supposedly a chat app, how can mentions not exist in the webhook function? Perplexing / disappointing.
Kimmo Saari commented
We need this feature.
Sai Li commented
Please add it. We need this.
Marcel Irmen commented

its will bring Teams to a higher Level
Please add it, I was also trying to make this work only to be dissappointed that it cannot be accomplished now...
