  1. add connector to a channel via api

    We would like the ability to add a connector to a channel programmatically, to enable team notification scenarios without needing to create an incoming webhook manually for each channel.

      • Test Mock Library or Recommended way to e2e test a Teams app.

        End to End/Integration testing is a bit of a pain with automated testing tools:
        a developer has to deal with authentication into Teams, clicking the correct team/channel,
        finding the proper iFrame for your app, and then dealing with authentication within Teams.

        Much of this is ends up testing Microsoft Teams itself rather than a developer's specific application.

        To try to mitigate this problem, I've been creating larger and larger mocks of the Teams
        js library so I can test the app outside of Teams' environment. This way, I can have Teams' context return data
        I need, simulate theme changes, etc...…

        • Automatically have all team members muted in Teams for Education

          A setting that starts all Team members as muted, they can then be manually changed by owners.

          This would be particularly useful in education as currently we have to add admin manually to every channel to ensure messaging is not being abused

          • Please add this feature to Windows: right clicking on a file and copying the link to that file.

            Just need an easier way to getting the link to a certain file in Windows. I'm thinking maybe you can add "Copy link" once you right click a file.

            • API to retrieve your saved messages

              It would be great to be able to save messages and then using flow or custom code be able to query for them via an API.

                • Add unread notification bubble to app icon

                  Hi,

                  Slack provides a notification bubble with the count of unread mentions. It also provides a notification bubble with a dot if there are no unread mentions, but there are channels with unread messages (example attached).

                  Currently, Teams includes a bubble with the count of unread mentions, but there is no way to tell from the app icon in the dock if there is other unread activity. Could you please add this feature?

                  Thanks,

                  Matt

                  • API to list all user's teams, channels and recent posts in channels

                    Going through all user's teams, channels and most recent posts in Teams is not a very performing process to do even if you had teams and channels ids prestored.

                    The purpose would be to provide "latest topics/chat threads in your Teams" -view. Sorta similar like Yammers aggregate view to help user to get a glance of "what's happening" in his Teams.

                    For example asking a bot "what's happening in my teams?" or this there could be a custom report/view (in Teams tab or in SharePoint) to user about what's the activity.

                    The API call could return some data about the…

                    • Notifications for unread messages should be visible on icon

                      There is no notification visible for any new messages or for unread messages. If there are unread messages in this application these should be visible on icon. This may be indicated just by a Red dot. No need to show numbers if that is difficult.

                        • Increase Throttling Limit when accessing from Graph API

                          I am trying to automate our Teams structure, by using the Graph API, and keep running into the throttling limits, which I cannot find any documentation for.
                          It seems to be the Skype backend that throws the ActivityLimitReached error and it seems really really low.
                          One of the issues is that in order to get teams structure (team main info, channel and tabs) you actually need to perform alot of graph queries, which all count towards your ActivityLimit, i guess.
                          So basically, increase the throttling limit (not just a little, but alot!) or give us some other way of accessing…

                                  Hello,
                                  We have a web app and we want to integrate Microsoft Teams with it, as this was requested by some of our users.

                                  The integration should be able to send alerts from our web app to a channel in the Microsoft Teams app, chosen by the user. The alerts are events that take place in our app, in the account of the user.
                                  After the integration is made, we expect to receive a token or a personalized URL for the channel the user chose, which we would save in the user's account and use to send messages/alerts.
                                  We've created…

                                    Not sure I selected the right category.

                                    I think it would be useful to also add the option to downvote an idea.

                                    Ideas/feature with e.g. 100 votes can get implemented while maybe 1000 people don't like the idea or feature to be added.

                                    Having a downvote option as well may indicate this and prevent unwanted features to be implemented.

                                    • Can you please allow to remove all banners/borders/file name ect. the amount of screen real estate is quite limited.

                                      Remove all unnecessary boarders, or allow them to be minimized, to maximize the available work area on the screen.

                                      see attached file for amount of screen real estate wasted in the browser window.

                                      • API post to mark an item as read on behalf of a user

                                        We're looking at custom integrations for Teams and this would help us seamlessly integrate Teams into other user experiences and vice versa.

                                        • API call to show what a user has and hasn't read

                                          This would allow us to integrate custom applications into Teams much more affectively and harness the full power of the Teams platform
