New! VSTS Dashboard integration in Microsoft Teams

VSTS dashboards provides flexibility to configure charts and widgets to view status, monitor progress, share information and improve workflow processes. VSTS dashboards are now available to be configured in Microsoft Teams channels using the VSTS Extension. Once configured these dashboards will be available to all members who have permissions to see the dashboards in VSTS.

 

Adding VSTS dashboard is like adding any other teams tab. Select VSTS from tab gallery and connect to your VSTS organization. Once connected you can select the dashboard you want to bring into Teams and save. This view also allows you add Kanban boards to your channels.

Once configured dashboard will automatically update whenever you open the dashboard tab in Teams. Top right corner you've an option to refresh manually as well. You can also have a conversation about the embedded dashboard within the dashboard view. Below snapshot shows both dashboard view and conversation in the single view

Hey! We have used this integration before, but after the switch from VSTS->DevOps we can not longer add it. The previously added tabs to Kanban-board and Dashboard works, but we can't add longer. 

 

Step 1 (works):

Step 2: Logging in with my credentials

 

Step 3: Select organization

 

Step 4: After selecting my organization we just get the following modal

We have also tried to do this from the browser, https://teams.microsoft.com, and when inspecting the DevTools Console we see a lot of errors. Is this a bug in the extension, or are we doing something wrong?

@Andreas Olsson, Apologies for the trouble. I tried to setup a new tab in one of my teams and I was able to select an organization and go to this step.

Could you please share the below details?

1. While selecting the organization, do you see the orgs listed in the format "<orgName>.visualstudio.com" ?

2. Could you please share the errors that you are seeing in the DevTools console?

Thank you for getting back so soon! 1. When I select the organization I don't see "orgName.visualstudio.com". What I have is "dev.azure.com/orgName". I can't attach photos/videos in the reply, so I have sent you a private message with screenshots and a screen recording.

I am experiencing the same issue as being reported by Andreas.  I click Select Organization and a small window pops up where I am redirected to my organization's sign-in page.  Once I provide my credentials, I am prompted to select an organization from a drop down box (see image below).  After selecting one of my organizations within this secondary window, I am returned to the first window (VSTS) but the Select organization button is still showing and the Save button is grayed out (not able to continue).
