  1. FindTime bot for Teams

    Would be nice to have a FindTime bot.

    Like we have the @forms bot for quick creation of polls.

    Meeting polls thru FindTime and Teams would be great.

    • Please make your T-Bot smarter. Might be integration with Cortana.

      T-Bot cannot answer simple question like
      1. How is weather today?
      2. Who is CEO of Microsoft?

      • Add all Office 365 help into the T-bot. One stop shopping for help through Teams T-bot.

        I'm really enjoying T-bot, and finding the idea of bots for help, is great. Would prefer for this experience for all of Office 365. It doesn't make sense to have different help experience for each app. Would love to see the T-bot trained on all help content across Office 365 as the workloads converge like they have with Groups & Teams.

        • Polly poll buttons should change highlighting after casting a vote

          When clicking a vote option in a Polly poll, there doesn't seem to be any feedback that your vote was recorded (highlighting on the buttons don't change). The selected button should change its background color so you know your vote was recorded.

          • change requirement to press tab button in order to make Polly bot work

            It turns out that when using the Polly bot one has to press tab after typing "@polly". I can kinda see why this is necessary but I didn't figure this out for myself, I had to email Polly support who kindly replied (very quickly, within a couple of minutes) and pointed me to this article: https://www.polly.ai/help/msteams/author-poll-not-working.html which states

            "If you tried something like @polly "Your poll in quotes" "voting option" "another voting option" but nothing is happening, then you’re likely not tagging Polly correctly. In Microsoft Teams, you need to hit tab after typing @polly in order for us to…

            • Private Corporate Applications without side-loading

              There is currently no way to create a bot, tab or connector that is private to your organization without enabling side-loading. This makes creating bots/apps for Teams impossible for many organizations. Even if side-loading was an option, the process is not end-user friendly and requires multiple technical steps. Publishing the app to the app store (even with authentication) is not an option either.

              In Skype, we can load a bot directly into our Tenant. Then users can search for it like any other contact. We need a similar function for Teams - corporate created apps that are available only with…

              • Mark 'Bots' which require paid services or additional licencing

                Bot's are great additions for new functionality, but when we added a number of bot's we then received 1:1 messages from the bots advising we needed to purchase the services or licences to utilise them.

                We then removed these bots, but this requirement is not clear when our users add bots to the Channels. It also at times posts the licence requirements into the Channel itself, which causes more confusion.

                We would like to have an icon stating 'Paid' (or something similar) next to Bots in the add-in menu which require licences or payment for the functionality. This will prevent…

                    Errbot is a chat bot framework that is compatible with many backends such as HipChat, Slack, Mattermost etc. Supporting it would allow support for many existing bots and ease the development of new bots - http://errbot.io/en/latest/

                      Please make whobot usable for skills searches by looking at other data sources besides chats in Teams. e.g. - have whobot go to Delve to find "who knows about" answers. Otherwise... "who knows about" should be renamed to "who has mentioned".

                          I'm looking at the new integration with 3rd party Bots. At the moment I am not adding any bots because of the permissions they require.

                          This bot has the following permissions:
                          Receive messages and data that I provide to it.
                          Send me messages and notifications.

                          Access my profile information such as my name, email address, company name, and preferred language.

                          • Polls

                            Please add the poll feature in the chat. At work, we use Teams as an internal communication tool instead of the email. Sometimes we need to vote for some ideas. For it we have to create a separate Form. I was wondering how it would be wonderful, if creating poll feature was in the chat.

                                  You can delete bots from a team. However, for your own personal chats, you can install bots and then the only options are to either make them a favorite or block their conversation.

                                      • Request to allow deleting a message posted by a bot in Microsoft Teams

                                        Teams owner can delete a message which is posted by a bot to Microsoft Teams channel, however end-users would not be able to delete the message by a bot.

                                        We would request you to allow end-users to delete the message.
