Teams roadmap watch: February 2020
I continue keeping track on the Microsoft 365 Roadmap for Teams feature. I will summarise the features listed in roadmap as “in development” and targeted for release in February 2020. I also updated the older articles for the roadmap watch, so check them out here: December 2019, January 2020.
Microsoft Teams – Real Time Presence
Currently the Presence can be a bit slow to update and you can’t always trust it. After this update I hope it will be almost instant as in Skype for Business. It been postponed month after month so let’s hope it will start rolling out now in February.
Enhanced scheduling form
This one will update the form used when scheduling meetings in Teams Calendar. You can read more about it here:
Store recordings in-region storage when Stream is not available in Go Local
Microsoft have some data centers in regions around the world and some of them are country-specific locations called “Go local”, example Germany and Australia. Some of these don’t have Microsoft Stream available and therefore meeting recording in Teams been disabled. With this update recording will be enabled and recordings will be saved in the closest regional data centre if Stream is not available in the Go local region. If your organisation don’t want to save recordings outside of your Go Local region you have to disable recording in your Meeting policy.
Phone System Additions for GCC
GCC that is a special cloud offer for US Government will get more Phone System features.
Additional Power Automate triggers for Microsoft Teams
In Power Automate you can create flows that start on different triggers. With this update you will get new flow triggers for Teams.
