I restarted Teams for the first time this week today, and when I checked What’s New (using the /whatsnew command in the command bar) I noticed these updates:
Access Teams plans in the Planner Hub
You now have access to plans you created in Teams right in the Planner web app. Favorite a plan or view the teams and channels associated with it, then open it up in Teams or keep working in Planner. Don’t worry—this feature is coming to the Planner mobile app soon.
For more info, check out Updates to Teams and Planner.
Improved badging in your tray or taskbar
Badges got a little better this week. Use them to check whether your status is set to Available, Away, Busy, or Do not disturb. They’ll also tell you if you have unseen activity or if Teams is offline, got disconnected, or ran into an error.
Pretty cool updates just keep on coming. I’ve had the availability badges enabled for some time using the developer tools, but good to see it coming, and improved badging for notifications is something a lot of my colleagues and customers have been asking for.
What’s your favourite new feature in Microsoft Teams? Is there something you’re still waiting for? Let me know!
