  1. Add/Support "Request to add members" feature through Graph API

    We are missing the possibility to recreate #MicrosoftTeams 's feature "Request to add members" with #Microsoft Graph API.

    We would like to be able to generate this "request" on behalf a member of a team.
    This request nee to add at least the native notification inside the Teams client to help owner(s) decide if yes or no, they approve or decline the request.

    At the moment it seems this feature is not available from Graph API (v1 or event beta) and more annoying it seems to be an abnormal behavior if we try to add member on behalf a member…

  2. Provide an API to read, add and remove saved messages in Teams

    I have a scenario where when a user saves a message I want to see those messages and list them in an application.

  3. Add support for creating chat messages on the user endpoint

    In the current graph beta, user chats and their messages can be enumerated using GET /users/{id}/chats and GET /users/{id}/chats/{id}/messages. However, new messages cannot be posted to the messages endpoint i.e POST /users/{id}/chats/{id}/messages . Please add this functionality.

    The desired functionality exists for team channel messages by posting to the channel messages endpoint (POST /teams/{id}/channels/{id}/messages). Replicating this for user chats using the same json payload would seem to be the most appropriate solution.

  5. Pinned Channels in Microsoft Teams

    With the announcement at Ignite 2019 of Pinned Channels it would be great if we could get access to them via the Graph API. You could add a property to the Channel called 'isPinned' and/or make a call to get all pinned channels in one hit e.g. me/pinnedChannels

  6. Provide a Teams API To send direct messages to users

    Currently, the only way to send messages is to post a message on a channel in a team. It would be great if there could be an API to send a direct message to the users. Please let me know if it already exists, because I could not find any such method in the chat object here :

  7. Complete custom teams tab adding and configuration from code

    When adding a custom SPFx teams app to a team using graph, it should be possible to complete the configuration from code so that the user is not required to complete the configuration.

  8. Support $select and Schema Extensions on /me/joinedTeams

    We have schema extensions on the Group resource to add metadata to user's Teams. We currently need to call both the /me/joinedTeams and then make time consuming calls to the /groups API in order to fetch the schema extensions for all the Teams that the user is joined to.

    It would be of great help if we could fetch the Schema Extensions directly on the /me/joinedTeams endpoint.

    It would be even better if we could also $filter the joinedTeams to only return the Teams that have a particular schema extension.

  9. Working with Teams without admin consent

    To make automated tests of MS Teams, you need to use the designated list of Graph API requests.
    But the Graph API requests all require the access type “Group.ReadWrite.All” using admin consent, which is not useful for our customers.
    The proposal would be to add one more access type, for example with the name “Group.ReadWrite”, which will allow the creation of a team, creation of a channel in the team, sending a message to the channel and replying to that message.
    The same user needs to be able to delete the channel and the team previously created.
    This is be…

  10. Get the total number of replies of each message when listing channel messages

    The response object when listing channel messages or getting a specific message, should give the total number of replies.
    This way, we don't have to fire a potentially heavy request just to be able to use this property.

  13. allow the usage of filter to retrieve chat for MS teams chat

    Currently Our project is using the API (mentioned bellow) to read all the messages of particular channel of MS Team

    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/graph/api/channel-list-messages?view=graph-rest-beta

    it is ok to hit this API for small conversation but as the conversation becomes lengthy( by the time), then the API takes long to retrieve the message. So please provide enable the filter to retrieve the teams messages by date filter.

    There are filter which can already be applied to message(on mail ) and people.
    Can this filter will also be enabled for channel messages for MS Teams.

  14. Provide webhooks for Microsoft Teams messages.

    We are integrating Microsoft Teams threaded chat into our product offering. Our users will interact with the channel-based chat using both the Microsoft Teams application and from within our application. To avoid polling, we would like to be able to subscribe to Microsoft Teams related events. Of interest are events related to new channel messages. We found similar subscriptions for files and email, but nothing related to Microsoft Teams.

    See documentation for /subscription endpoints, Change notifications: "Use the Microsoft Graph API to get change notifications"

  15. Include "businesePhones" in basic profile

    According to https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/graph/permissions-reference#remarks-23, now with permission:"User.readBasic.All" , only bleow properties would be visible:
    - displayName
    - givenName
    - mail
    - photo
    - surname
    - userPrincipalName

    Which means "businessPhones" is not included.
    So it means normal user (not admin) won't be able to view other users' business phones

    Just suggest to include businessPhones in basic profile.

  16. Provide API access to Time Clock data in Shifts app

    Provide an API to access time clock data from a Team's Shifts schedule, etc. Would be useful if there were a way to get this data integrated with payroll and other enterprise systems.

  17. User Provisioning API

    MS Teams configuration is currently split between two powershell modules: the Skype for Business Online PS Module and the Teams PS module.

    We're using these to provision MS Teams, but it is cumbersome to do remote PS, the SfBO Module has stringent limits like number of sessions, throttling and speed overall (takes a long time to even get a session).

    My suggestion is to move everything to MS graph.. and for end users, extend the MS Teams PS module using these newly established graph API functionality and offer them to developers as well. We'd be a lot more effective being…

  18. support /delta for teamwork chats, channels, and replies

    If you have an application that reads Teams chat and channel messages it is hard to know when you have recent replies to old messages.

    Eg if you have an application that needs to keep abreast of all replies, and,

    If you have a user making a reply to a 6 month-old-message in a channel,

    How does your application find out?

    If it could request channel messages with a /delta then that would work. It would then know which messages to call "get replies" for.

  19. Archival - support shouldSetSpoSiteReadOnlyForMembers setting when using app-only permissions

    When archiving a Team (https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/graph/api/team-archive?view=graph-rest-1.0) there is an optional parameter `shouldSetSpoSiteReadOnlyForMembers` to change all user permissions on the content to read-only. This however does not currently work when using Application permissions.

    This should be supported, possibly requiring the `Sites.ReadWrite.All` application permission.

    This will allow us to archive a team automatically in a background process in response to certain business requirements eg. time elapsed, team status etc.

  20. Create scheduled online meetings

    We are able to create ad-hoc online meetings, but are currently unable to create scheduled online meetings from the Graph API which will send meeting invites just as if we scheduled the meeting in the Teams client.
