On Monday afternoon, as news of COVID-19 cases spread globally, we pulled together a team to help customers coordinate their own information sharing and team collaboration in response to evolving conditions in times of crisis. Today, less than 48 hours later, we’re releasing the first version of that solution for any customer organization to quickly implement. You can read more about the solution in our blog post or get the full instructions for how you can implement your own Crisis Communication app here.
We're extremely excited to hear how the community leverages this app, so we've created this thread to hear directly from you. Feel free to share your experience customizing the solution and altering it for your own needs. Over the next few weeks, we'll take your responses to make the app even better and post incremental updates. 😁
@Anonymous , I think I figured it out. You'll want to...
1. go to the list of components
2. open FAQList
3. select FAQGallery
4. update the Items property so that it sorts by rank
I do have some other questions/issues that I posted earlier:
Thanks in advance!
Hi there -
The app and the work that has gone into it is absolutely amazing! Thank you to all involved.
I've had a search and I'm struggling to find a solution with adding new statuses. I can easily add a new status but I can't see how to add a new icon. I can reuse one of the icons which is there already but adding a new isn't immediately obvious. Any help appreciated!
Another great template!
Feedback from end users:
Thanks for the great app!
I have it working well on my Teams on Desktop - how can I have it on my Teams mobile app (iOS) ?
Should it even work on mobile?
On my iPhone Teams app i can only see some basic apps like Camera, Files, Wiki etc. but not my Crisis App
We've rolled out a new version of Crisis Communication. This includes updates to the apps and flows.
Please see the readme on the site for instructions on how to update import a new app or flow. Below are some quick highlights
There are more updates listed in the readme.
Action: Please let me know how you're customizing the app. I've put in a first phase of exposing some colors and images for styling the menus with the settings OnStart. I'd like to roll out some more improvements so that you can change the styles more easily with updates to the template.
@Mr-Dang-MSFT we are just about to launch the sharing status part of the app to around 7000 staff. It's looking great so thanks for all your work!
A couple of things that would be useful / things to note:
Keep up the good work 🙂
Hi @Mr-Dang-MSFT !
When I want to update the app, it tells me this:
This does not seem correct as everything is already set up.
What am I doing wrong?
Thanks to all involved in continuing to further this application. We have successfully applied the update and published it to our entire company. All of my nits and bugs that were causing issues have now been resolved with the exception of still hitting some quota when doing Teams notifications. For now, we are sending emails instead. This works. We get about 300 or so out and it then responds with a "Quota has been exceeded" message and stops sending notifications. We have had a ticket in with MSFT for a week now but don't know where we need to go next so that we can send notifications via teams flow.
We had the same thing happen to us upon updating. However, when we published everything was fine. I went back to edit and it pulled the information as it did before.
Just in case it doesn't work the same for you, You can roll back your app to the previous version rather easily.
