It’s the last day of Build so it seems only fitting that the first community reading recommendation of the week goes to this article: Best Practices in Tab Integration. Its written by Polyscribe, one of the first Tab integrations for Teams and was built from the ground up specifically for Teams. This blog post by Polyscribe founder Rohan Relan shares the lessons and strategies they learned while building the integration. A must read for anyone interested in building something similar!
I also really loved this blog post from Howard Weinstein of FinServ Consulting: Microsoft Teams a Killer App for Collaboration. If you’re helping hedge funds or private equity firms with their IT, check out his section on how Teams relates to these types of organizations.
Lastly, I recommend checking in on the Microsoft Teams feedback portal. But if you’re going to be busy gardening in the warm weather this weekend like me, then you can just read this recap:
COMING [really, really] SOON
- Previews of messages into the “Missing all the action” emails
- Notifications for connectors
- Ability to add a Microsoft PowerApp as a tab
- A button in your Outlook calendar for “New Teams Meeting”
- Improved editing for Wiki
COMPLETED [but maybe you didn’t know]
Bring your own SharePoint! You can migrate an existing SharePoint into Teams.
- You can remove the Wiki tab
- You can paste in URLs
- Markdown support to Wiki tab
