Teams Mobile Feature updates for iOS

There are two handy features for the mobile client coming out quite soon. The first one is a better integration on the file storage integration. File-picker will soon (if not already for you) enable you to select different locations to attach files from. On my personal device, I can now pick from OneDrive, Google Drive and Dropbox. This feature should be rolling out to most tenants already The second feature coming out is the capability to hide (or show) Teams calls in the native iOS call log. I am looking forward to this as I have more than once accidentally called someone back with the wrong modality when I'm not in the office and not on Wi-Fi. Be aware that calls made prior to turning this feature off (removing calls from the call log). Already placed calls will remain in the list. The setting only applies to new calls. This last feature should be rolling out in September .

Tags (or Targeted communications) is coming to Microsoft Teams

Early next year, there will be a new way to organize and target specific people for @mentioning them within Teams. The new tagging feature will allow you to group people by roles, function or whatever you need, and tag them within Teams.

The targeted communication, as road-map 57651 calls it, is managed through the Teams admin center, but can also be controlled on the Teams level. The Teams admin can allow both Team owners and members to add Teams, as well as create a set of default Tags across the organization.

On the settings page of a Team, the Team owner can control who gets to add tags in that Team. Once again, I recommend some user training on the subject, and maybe a high level discussion on how your organization wants to use this feature.

Admins can also create new tags and add members to the tag from the ""Manage Tags" on the drop down menu.
