Hello!

I have a question regarding custom teams apps.

We have an app with personal tab functionality, and i'd like to add notifications to this tab.

 

I.E. when something happens in regards to a specific user, the user recieves a notification which tells them what happened, and what they need to do next.

I was thinking of realising this functionality at first with BOT functionality of teams app, but then i thought it'd be more elegant if it would be possible to have the same notification functionality that Teams is already using for when you get @ from someone and in turn see this:

Or something similar, but just instead of having it for the Chat tab, have it for the apps personal tab.

 

I tried scouring the custom teams app documentation but the only thing i found was "isnotificationonly" boolean for the BOT functionality for custom teams app, but i dont think this is what i want.

 

Any suggestions or a specific blog for this kind of functionality would be greatly appreciated.

 

thanks in advance.

@omeprazole - Currently it is not possible to show custom feed notifications similar to native Teams app in personal tabs. You can suggest this feature at Microsoft uservoice.

 

Thanks,
Meghana

Hey, thanks for your answer, i guess we'll be using BOT functionality for this now, this is the idea i've submitted: https://feedbackportal.microsoft.com/feedback/idea/756032ec-75c4-ec11-a81b-000d3a00c008
