  1. HUBOT support

    I would like support for hubot: https://hubot.github.com

    This could make the switch from Slack or FLowdock a lot easier.

    • Show URL previews for messages from Connectors

      When I post a URL as a user, Teams automatically expands the message to include a URL preview. When a webhook posts the same thing, the URL remains plain text.

      The webhook should be able to opt in to the same "unfurling" treatment that the user's message received.

      • Most of our teams have come back with a feedback that, they need to have separate access to Channels and not inherit parent permiss

        Most of our proposal teams have come back with a feedback that, they need to have separate access to Channels and not inherit parent permissions from Parent Microsoft teams created.

        Is this something possible in near future? Also when will the metrics be available for Microsoft teams?

        • API for activity and content

          It would be very helpful to be able to access details of all activity and content via an API so this information can be imported into third-party applications. Should include record and content of all messages, posts, etc. as well as details on all meetings and phone calls.

          • Developer API to install custom Apps in personal scope and for a specific Team

            I'd like a developer API regarding management of custom Apps. Mainly the ability to install custom Applications (in personal scope) for all our users, so that they automatically have our "company" app installed in their Teams sidebar.

            Additionally, I'd like the ability to install (custom) apps/tabs in a specific team. This way a new Team can be customized automatically with all necessary tabs/bots/apps.

            • Add support for more UI languages - Would love to see Hebrew support.

              Add support for more UI languages - Would love to see Hebrew support as we're using Microsoft Teams in schools where English isn't the primary language.

              • Posting offline

                Teams should allow us to post messages offline (business guys currently work in many country areas with no signal) and once we enter the zone with signal, Teams to send them by itself (Whatsapp capability).
                Thank you.

                • AD / O365 Group integration

                  Make teams groups able to use AD / o365 groups so dynamic team membership can be driven by groups.
                  When adding a member to a team you can add a group but this just pulls the current member of the group. Making teams read the group membership to determine membership on a scheduled basis would be very helpful for teams that change regularly and are based on AD groups.

                    • how to move folders from channels to channels

                      I have folders in one channel and it's not possible to move the complete folder to a new channel.
                      Once you start to use Teams, it's getting more and more information, so finally you open new channels and you want to move some folders and files from general to the new cannel to make it simple.
                      I cuden't find the way to move those folders from general to the new cannel.

                      • Incoming Webhook security

                        So far, I've not found any information on the topic of incoming webhook and actionable messages security, specifically - I'd love to be able to have any authorization required to post to the incoming webhook or limit the possible Actionable Message url target to just my company domain. Right now, I am afraid that if the incoming webhook address leaks outside the company, someone will be able to send Actionable Message form, which will send sensitive info outside of my company.

                          • The difference between "Chat" and "Conversation" is unclear to a new user.

                            Rename the "chat" icon on the left to "private chat" and "Conversation" tab to "team chat." My team members are hesitant to use either one, because it is not clear to them who can see their conversations. Maybe also allow the developer to name the Conversation tab with their specific team name. For example, my team would be "Mid-Atlantic Team Chat." That way it is clear what team they are conversing with, especially when they are part of a large number of teams.

                            • Web hook theme color

                              I can't get the themeColor element to work from a web hook.

                              On https://dev.outlook.com/Connectors/GetStarted it shows examples like: "themeColor": "EA4300" but on https://dev.outlook.com/Connectors/reference it says to specify colors with a # prefix. None of those seem to work. No accent color is shown in either the Windows desktop program or the Android app.

                                  Support sending invites via the API. It would be super handy to be able to invite users to our Microsoft Team programmatically, and to specify which channels we'd like them to be added to.

                                  • Please remove ALL whitespace or provide a setting to do so.

                                    Please remove ALL whitespace or at least make it a setting to that allows it to be removed. The amount of white space makes Teams very difficult to read quickly. We have a professional environment and many chats running. Reading speed is important. I downloaded my Teams version this morning and the whitespace remains.

                                    For example below only 4 of the 9 lines contain information. The full line for Reply contains no information and is effectively white space. Reply could be combined on the same line as the person's name.

                                    Example:
                                    [whitespace]

                                        • Autodetect code snippet language

                                          Now you can create and post code snippets. The new feature looks great!

                                          When you create a snippet you have to select the language. It would be great, if Teams could detect the language automatically, too.
