    • adjustable timeout on the outbound webhook reply (5 seconds not long enough)

      Currently if you use a outbound web hook to integrate with another system like a custom bot the time given for a response is only 5 seconds, that a fine default, but it needs to be adjustable so that bot/services that do some work before responding has time to do so. I would say up to 2 mins (the http standard timeout) though a recommendation to not go over 30 seconds for resources could get strained. You would need to put a max currently open connections from a user, team or channel to prevent some pretty horrid resource starvation attack…

      • Add more languages to bots (for example Who-bot)

        Who-Bot in Teams is great, but it would be even greater if it could speak different languages, like Norwegian. ;)

        This bot doesn´t understand that many commands, so translating it shouldn´t be too difficult.

        It would help user adoption if people could use their native language.

        • Forms bot: export results and delete forms

          When using inline Forms bot I can answer to the poll. I need to export the results in some cases and there may be a need to delete the form + results. Bot should give control to export and delete results/forms.

            • 'Who'-Bot: Marking messages as 'helpful' for more qualified "Who knows about..." answers.

              The 'Who'-Bot brings a feature to search colleagues with specific knowledges.
              'Who' therefore answers a "Who knows about..."-question with a list of Team users.
              This knowledge of one user seems to be based on the users posts with the keyword given in the "Who knows about..."-query.
              Therefore it would be great to be able to mark posts/chat message as 'helpful' or mark a message as 'verified answer'. Then only users who wrote helpful messages to a topic are listed in a result of a "Who knows about..." question.
              Alternatively you could emphasize these users in the result set.

              • Who-bot itegrations

                The Who-bot is a fantastic addition to Teams. An API or some sort of integrations for Who-bot would be greatly beneficial for companies looking to provide a more tailored experienced for our users.

                • Support rendering of tables within cards

                  It would be helpful to be able to render tables of values as part of the content of cards pushed into Teams via the connector/webhook functionality.

                  • Streamline Azure Bot Service publishing for internal use

                    The Bot publishing process seems pretty convoluted when you are just wanting to build bots for use internal to your organisation.

                    It would be good if Teams users within the same tenant could immediately access any bots with a Teams channel included in the Azure Bot Service. Perhaps in the channel settings the Office 365 Groups could be listed to fine tune access.

                      • fix help

                        Fix help - It claims T-Bot is still there to help - which is not
                        and says you can click on profile picture at the top of the app to find Help - which you can't..
                        Don't even have a help category had to choose bot..

                        • Don't allow bots that do not support single user installations to be installed as single user installations.

                          When installing a bot, there's the option to install it for a team or for myself. Some bots do not support single user installs, and shouldn't give the option for such when adding the bot.

                            • More Teams training videos through T-Bot, and regularly kept updated, dont let these videos fall behind the curve. .

                              I am absolutely a fan of been able to find training material within the Teams application, and this is fantastic to be able to point end users. But Teams has been updated very rapidly, and these videos are growing more and more out of date. Short, fun ,videos are key to training busy users. Please review how your future proofing this great training tool, and keeping it up to date and more variety. The ideal is a library full of these short videos.

                                  • Give OneNote Slash Commands for Maximum Onenote-Teams Integration

                                    I've seen multiple requests here for integration with OneNote, and I think the best solution would be a combination of logical integrations with OneNote and slash commands or even a bot. In terms of slash commands, these come to mind:

                                    - /one textsearchhere: Let users search OneNote from directly within Teams and see a preview of/results from within the team's primary OneNote; users can then insert that directly into a conversation for easy knowledge base referencing.

                                    - /onenew Title of Note Here: Let users start a note from directly within Teams with a simple slash command that, when activated by…

                                    • Add speech to text option to chat interface

                                      We use a chat bot via Teams only because the bot can authenticate the user against the id returned via the Teams API. We would like to add a speech based interface which is proving very difficult given the need to authenticate against AD. But if the Teams chat interface had the microphone button as per the Bot Web Chat interface this would be out-of-the-box functionality.

                                      • Enhanced transparency for bots

                                        Some bots require purchases through 3rd parties and others do not. Similar to the description of apps for mobile devices (e.g. in-app purchases), include a descriptor or icon on bots that require purchase.
