Updated March 30, 2021: This piece has been updated to reflect that the new feature allows app developers to programmatically manage tags through integrations.
Microsoft Teams will soon make it easy to ping a specific group of people within a channel. An upcoming feature allows app developers to programmatically assign users to tags within a team. With people easily assigned to tags through integrations, a person can then mention a tag within a channel to ping that specific group of people.
Here’s the full description from the Microsoft 365 roadmap:
This set of APIs can be used to programmatically assign users tags in a team, making tag creation and maintenance faster and easier. Tags in Teams let users quickly reach a group of people without having to @mention or type out everyone individually. Users can use tags to start a chat or by @mentioning a tag in a channel post. For more information on tag in teams, see Using tags in Teams. Using these new APIs, developers can now: create tags in a team and assign users, get a list of tags in a team, update tags or delete tags.
As is the case with all features on the Microsoft 365 roadmap, its release date is subject to change.
