  1. Allow to request /filesFolder with the Channel object

    Currently if we want to get driveItem for all channels in the team we need to do one request to get channels first and then separate requests (or batch) to get filesFolder information for each of the channels.
    It would be great if /filesFolder result (or its part) was included in channel information or we could $expand on the filesFolder.

  3. 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.

  6. 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.

  8. Get User's Channel Account

    Get User Channel Account .
    Right now we don't have the ability to create new private conversation with the user or to mention him in a public channel , without having his ChannelAccount.
    Please add feature for getting user's ChannelAccount or at least user's ChannelAccount Id.
    Right now the only way i know for getting this id is from the turnContext( turnContext.activity.from) , but what if i want to initiate conversation or to mention the user without having direct contact with him right now ?

  10. 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"

  11. conversationMember API object should include the UPN

    In the REST API, various calls return one or more conversationMember objects (list channels, get chat members, etc.). conversationMember includes the userId and email, but should really include userPrincipalName (the UPN) as well, as it's more useful for dealing with users vs. the e-mail address.

  12. 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…

  13. 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.

  14. Chat component in the Microsoft Graph Toolkit

    Logged In user can have options to enable/disable chat option on Portal itself for the selected Azure Directory to chat with their colleague and partners. Sort of small chat widget i.e. like a pop-up window can be used. The same widget can also be used in Intranet Portal in Office 365 and other places.

  16. support the ability to provide attachments when creating/replying to a Channel conversation

    Currently through Graph API new parent conversations or replies can be created in a Channel. However, there is no capability to include attachments when creating these posts.

    This capability is important as it helps other systems seamlessly create conversations in Teams and eliminate manual effort required for handling attachments completely.

    Please let us know if this capability is already in the Graph roadmap and it's current status.

  17. Graph REST API for Teams - Add support for tab sorting on team

    While looking at the beta documentation for the teams integration I noticed that a field named "sortOrderIndex" in the "teamsTab" data object exists. (https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/graph/api/resources/teamstab?view=graph-rest-beta)

    I'm unable to set it while adding the tab (https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/graph/api/teamstab-add?view=graph-rest-beta) or update it with the patch method (https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/graph/api/teamstab-update?view=graph-rest-beta)

  18. Support Booking Teams Calls/Meetings with Graph API

    When building a custom tool to book rooms and meetings, it would be very good if we have support for booking teams meetings/calls with the help of Graph API.
    At the moments it is not supported, only "meetNow" Teams meetings creation are supported: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/graph/api/resources/onlinemeeting?view=graph-rest-beta

  19. 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.

  20. When I download a message of teams channel, I would like to have access to the inline images.

    I got the html-code, but the URLs of the embedded images are kind of https://eu-api.asm.skype.com.eu.cas.ms/v1/objects/... and I only have access to them when I am connected via the TeamsClient. My Angular App uses the MSAL library.
