Today’s release is a major change to Board Connect. It brings in many new features and capabilities and simplifies many of the processes for how board administrators, board members and other roles operate within your organisation.

We have added the Graph API permissions relating to managing TeamsAppInstallations for Users.  These Graph API’s allows Board Connect to add the application to the logged on users list of personal apps by default.

  • ReadForChat
  • ReadWriteForUser
  • ReadWriteSelfForUser

Add and remove members from channels on behalf of the signed-in user. The addition of this Graph scope also allows changing a member’s role. For example from channel owner to channel member.
