Hello

 

We are in an organization with multiple brands and so Multi Tenant approach using Skype with accurate federation meaning than any brands can see the directory of the others brands

Actually thinking about teams we have two issues :

1- We setup the domain white list with our different email domain on our tenant from Teams Admin portal (as in Skype One) but cannot browse the others directory from Teams (only the users from OUR tenant)

I did read that the other tenant need to white list our domain too in Teams Admin Portal but will it be enough to enable both of us to browse the global directory (from the other tenant whitelisted) ?

2- Actually i need to add the email from my external colleague and

* It does not show his full name (just email)

* i cannot like his message

* no copy/paste image etc.. we missed the teams chat experience we have with internal people from our tenant

* no scree sharing

>> difficult for that point 2/ to migrate to teams if such basic things are not available (and were in Skype). What is the roadmap to enhance federate external chat in Teams ?

 

Thanks in advance for the replies.

I know there is a v2 federation coming soon for Teams to Teams which should enable more rich experience between them, not sure about likes but I think that might be included.

This video has a slide here and he touches on it at some point, but you can see that there is v2 federation coming soon: https://youtu.be/wEc9u4S3GIA?list=PLaSOUojkSiGlxbdgrAjx5iWFOM-4XeO8N&t=2864

As for directory's I haven't heard anything about that and it would be a good ask for an AMA as I'm not sure if that's something they will be enabling. You could setup some form of web page and give access to the directory with chat links for federation, but that's the only way I know you could do that now for a work around, but built into Teams I know it's not possible to pull in someone elses directory.

Thanks Chris for the answer

* Related to Federation V2 would you know a ETA ?

* For the directory - shall I understand that it will (and would in the future too) not be possible to browse others directorys like in Skype (or even Outlook). If so, wow, such a pain for my users used to work - efficiently - this way. Thanks to confirm my understanding.

 

ETA no. That guy said soon in the video but it’s been a few months. I’d say it shouldn’t be too much longer.

As for directory federation I haven’t seen anything on that front. Doesn’t mean Microsoft won’t surprise us with that feature but I haven’t seen it on roadmap. They did bring out the “alert me when someone becomes available” out of left field recently so you never know. I bet we’ll get it just s matter of when.

Hello chris - we are 5 months later since your last reply. Do you have better visibility about the ETA of that feature still waited for some of us ? Thks. Alain

Native 1:1 chat fed. Got posted as being rolled out through July into August in message center recently. So I guess it’s close but things have come and gone without launching before. Let’s hope it does land when they say and it come out anytime over the next few weeks.
