As your company uses Microsoft Teams to collaborate on projects or initiatives, you'll often encounter invaluable product feedback.

 

At Productboard, we want to ensure that you have a mechanism for housing this in a system-of-record. This enables you to record, categorize and leverage feedback for feature or roadmap prioritization.

 

By integrating Microsoft Teams and Productboard, you'll unlock the ability to:

  1. Push Microsoft Teams messages into Productboard as notes
  2. Receive Teams notifications when a note has been processed
  3. Track the status of your pushed notes through our notes overview tab

  1. Select the Productboard tab from the left sidebar.
  2. Within the Productboard tab, select My notes from the top navigation bar.
  3. If you have pushed notes, you will see them chronologically ordered. You will also see their associated status (processed/unprocessed).

 

What types of messages can be pushed to Productboard from Microsoft Teams?

You can push all plain text messages from private channels, team channels or chats.

Each note only records a single message. Therefore, if you wish to push multiple notes from the same thread, you will need to push each note separately. Each of the pushed messages will be recorded as a separate note in Productboard, i.e. they will not be threaded together.
