This is still on the backlog and I don’t have any additional info to share at the moment.
We currently use this in mattermost for integration with our ticketing system. For example, a mention of #ticket_number pulls metadata from our request tracker.
Its also a requirement if you want to bridge channels with external services. For example, we use matterbridge to connect a private channel to a partner's slack instance in order to have cross-site communication w/o creating accounts in both systems for every single person.
No new updates. We continue to work towards the S4B convergence.
Official roadmap for the convergence: https://skypeandteams.blob.core.windows.net/artefacts/Skype%20for%20Business%20to%20Teams%20Capabilities%20Roadmap.pdf
Yes, please implement this. We would love to tie these features into our existing conferencing system. The collaboration in Teams is way above what S4B does, but for A/V, room systems and desktop phones its S4B.
The fact that this wasn't implemented from day one makes me wonder how MS operates internally, do all employees run two clients? Are operations that silo'd that this is not an issue?
No new updates, we are still working away on this.
The unified presence is getting closer to release! It is still in development and planning to launch in Q1 of 2018! (The Office 365 Roadmap can be found at: https://products.office.com/en-us/business/office-365-roadmap?featureid=24191#abc )
I’ll keep you posted as more information is shared!
Consistency with S4B and all other os365 presence aware apps would be ideal. IE, if I'm in a meeting w/ A/V in Teams it should update my presence in S4B to show busy, same as if I'm in an S4B meeting.
