Community Update #1

Published 04-07-2017 12:02 PM 5,698 Views

This is the first of a kinda-weekly edition called Community Update. Its a Friday blog series of recommended reading from our community. I read (nearly) everything our community blogs about Microsoft Teams, and the best articles will be showcased weekly here in this suggested reading list. I'll also provide updates to user-requested items to Teams.


First up is a blog post from my colleague Mansoor Malik, who leads our extensibility work for tabs like Planner. Click here to read his really good news about Planner integration in Teams. (Hint: new features!) Please share and tweet to him your thoughts.

My second favorite read was this case study about how Hendrick Motorsports uses Microsoft Teams in the race pit as a direct line of communication between engineers and fuelers to make real-time split decisions and talk during a race. From Trek Bikes to Hendrick Motorsports -- Microsoft Teams seems to attract the truly adventurous!

@Suphatra Rufo Thanks for this. Great updates! Just one little thing (or maybe I'm missing something). When we pick the link to the planner task and paste it in a conversation - when someone clicks on it, it only takes to the planner tab/board and doesn't open the task. Is that the correct behavior? Thanks!


PS: BTW I couldn't find/tag Mansoor Malik in here

Still need to be able to create a task for planner with an email

Yes, I agree. This seems like such a simple thing to implement especially given that Trello does this easily enough and MS Teams allow you to email in a message to a channel with an attachment and so forth so surely emailing a task to a planner board can't be that difficult to do?

Great update. 

I'm looking for a way to push Planner updates into a channel in Teams. Is this still missing or just hard to find?
