Microsoft Teams Development Samples:  (




Thank you for joining for today’s PnP Community call.   It’s a full house!   


Demos delivered in this session

  • Getting started with PnP Teams QuickStart – create a Teams SSO tab in 15 minutes using browser-based Codespaces currently in preview.  Follow presenter as he creates a new Teams tab, registers it in Azure AD, accesses Graph for presence courtesy of Microsoft/Teamsfx js library, deploys app in App Store, and deletes app when done.  PnP Teams Quick Start is based on GitHub Codespaces = your virtual machine in the cloud.

  • Our learnings from the AppSource submission for Microsoft Teams – a first timer documents the journey – a 7-step process going from idea to app in AppSource.  Solid tips beyond the process that every product team should consider ranging from extension opportunities and testing to devices and post publishing maintenance.  Prepare to fail gracefully and learn openly as the journey includes working closely with a Microsoft submissions team that’s completely interested in your success.     

  • Getting started with Microsoft Graph Tag API for managing Microsoft Teams tagging – this presentation focuses on people centric tags used in Teams to categorize, to @mention and to start a chat.   Teams makes it nearly effortless to create, manage and use tags to connect people and groups.   New Beta APIs, available week of June 28th, address many tag management challenges – permissions, membership updates, tapping data that exists outside immediate org.  Glimpse at what’s next.            


Thank you for your work. Samples are often showcased in Demos.
