How can we make Microsoft Teams better?

Granular bot and tab controls based on Office 365 Groups classifications

Currently bots & tabs have one control - on or off. Many organizations must turn this option of due to data protection issues. Corporate data will be sent out of the Office 365 environment to unknown sources (bots and tabs).

What I would like to see is a granular control that allows you to enable bots & tabs for Teams that have specific Office 365 Groups classifications. For instance you might enable bots & tabs for "Public" or "Unrestricted" Teams but not for "internal" or "restricted" ones.

    It would be nice to enable specific apps and bots for selected Teams only, instead of making them available to all users. I am in a heavily regulated industry and our security team wants to keep tight control over what apps and bots are available to users.

    Yes, we would like to be able to develop our own bots in Azure and have then enabled while still disabling or granularly controlling 3rd party apps separately.

    We cannot utilize bots without this control. Please let us know when this is feature will be delivered.

    You need enterprise controls asap !!!
    We definitely require this, we might want to enable some of the bots once we've assessed them, but how can we just trust them? What check has MS done to QC these bots and by enabling them are MS vouching for these bots?

    Likewise connectors, we have a video hosting service and want to switch Stream off, you can't turn just one off you have to turn them all off. Planner has eDiscovery holes in it and needs to be disabled for example, but we want to add powerpoint etc etc.
