Developing Apps for Teams
This sample application demonstrates how to integrate a Web application into Teams. The app is a Line of Business (LOB) application that can be accessed directly in the browser or from within Teams.
Key features include:
Users can login and access the app directly in the browser OR within Teams:
Users can manage customers:
- View customers (card view, grid view. and map view)
- View customer details (including location information provided by Bing maps)
- Edit customers
- Page customers
- Filter customers
Users can view customer orders
Once the custom Teams app is installed, the LOB app can be accessed using the desktop, web, and mobile versions of Teams
App functionality can be accessed using a Bot within Teams:
As customers are changed in the app, the Bot can notify users directly in Teams:
The Bot can even be used to answer important questions such as the meaning of life (you can of course replace this "fun" functionality with custom requirements from your business domain):
From a technology standpoint, the application uses the following functionality:
- Azure Active Directory and Microsoft Authentication Library (MSAL) when the app runs outside of Teams
- Single Single-On when the app runs inside of Teams
- Teams app custom tab
- Bot that leverages LUIS and QnA Maker Azure Cognitive Services
- App to Bot communication
- Angular on the client-side and Node on the server-side.
NOTE: This application is a work in progress that will continue to be enhanced and updated over time. Consider forking this repository if you want to easily return to this version.
