UPDATE: March 3, 2023


Thank you to our partners and customers who signed up to try our Teams integration customization and provide feedback! As announced during the Summit 2023 Keynote session, Microsoft Teams integration will be available as part of the core product starting 2023 R1 as part of our new Experimental Features. We have made a lot of great improvements both in the integration as well as its usability. Yet we are just beginning.

We will be ending the Managed Availability Program for Teams integration for any new requests. This means that if you were a partner or customer as part of the program, you can continue using the integration as a customization that was provided. However, support, ongoing maintenance, and support for future versions will no longer be available from April 4, 2023. We will continue to monitor this community site as well as our interaction with customers and partners to collect ideas and feedback to help improve our Microsoft Teams Integration (core).

Since it was Managed Availability and the integration was available only as a customization project, we made several modifications and improvements when bringing this into the core product. As a result, a re-implementation is required to migrate from the customization to the core product. 

 

Hello ISV’s, partners, and customers,

We are getting ready for our Microsoft Teams integration to enter Managed Availability! As a result, we are looking to identify a few customers who would be ideal candidates to help provide feedback on this integration between Microsoft Teams and Acumatica. The integration will be available as a customization.

 

Watch the demonstration below or on Wistia to learn about the key features and benefits of this integration.

 

An ideal candidate for this particular integration would be customers who have an IT team/resource or if their IT operations are outsourced who can create some access rights and permissions. Specifically, the following capabilities are required:

  • Need to be able to create a user with a Teams Administrator Role in Azure
  • Need to be able to create a Microsoft Graph API application and configure OAuth security. Click “Show Content” below for the full list of permissions for Graph API. 
API / Permissions name Description
Channel.ReadBasic.All Read the names and descriptions of channels
ChannelMessage.Send Send channel messages
Chat.Create Create chats
ChatMessage.Send Send user chat messages
Files.Read.All Read all files that user can access
GroupMember.Read.All Read group memberships

If you are an interested customer, please comment below as well as reach out to your reseller/partner.

If you are a partner/ISV, please leave a comment below as well as follow the instructions over on the Managed Availability Overview page to create an Acumatica Presales Support Case with the appropriate information. 

Looking forward to working with you all as we roll out this exciting integration!

Not sure if this is the best place to include feedback, but it would be really nice if we could use this to have Teams initiate a phone call to phone numbers listed in the phone number fields in Acumatica. Is that feasible?

@kgarvey29 great idea! This was actually suggested by another user trying out the integration. We will look into the possibility of this since not everyone uses feature of calling phone number with Teams. I have communicated this request to the team as well as we consider enhancements to the integration.
