Hey @Julie Elmuccio, great news with the universe of apps expanding so greatly.

 

When it comes to Apps in MS Teams following questions are still on the table:

  1. Corporate communications is asking how can we establish a sort of moderation/control of potentially difamatory content surfaced by some of these public apps ? 
  2. Tenant (fairly acceptable so far) > Team > Channel based governance of which apps to be allowed for consumption.
  3. Monitoring activation of these apps via traditional tools, e.g. Cloud App Security listing, not at all visible currently, and a great issue for medium/large enterprises ?

And also - i do not see the "Who" bot in neither of my tenants (despite being both in Targeted release ). Anything special to do to get access, or its simply a matter of rollout timing.

 

Thank you in advance,

The Who bot isn’t like your usual bot setup. It’s on the left hand side in the Elipsis menu and it’s on there by default with the latest update. Once you click that it sets up. If it’s not there then you have external app off on tenant?

Valued Contributor

are You on edu tenant as well? Think who bot is only for non edu Teams.

The desktop version of Teams for Windows & InVision seem to clash. It's giving a Warning: WebGL not supported issue.
