In my previous post I guided you through a list of steps required to build, send and handle response from Adaptive Cards as Actionable Messages in Outlook. Let me now tell you, how to secure the response.
It has been a while since I first thought about writing this post. Recently I had more questions around this topic and somehow realized, that indeed this is something about Adaptive Cards that I haven’t yet written about. So let me fix it with this ultimate guide.
I’ve been asked that question multiple times – how to assign a single Adaptive Card to multiple Microsoft Teams users and then collect responses. The point is, that action “Post an Adaptive Card to Teams user and wait for response” lets us to collect just a single response at a time. So how can we do it?
This topic has been continuously raised by multiple people I’ve been talking to. How can a user be mentioned in Microsoft Teams when a message is sent from Power Automate? This issue seemed to never been really possible for us, Power Users, until couple days ago Microsoft released new action in Microsoft Teams set in Power Automate called: “Get @mention token for a user”. It’s even cooler, because it works with Adaptive Cards too!
In the beginning of July Microsoft has added two new triggers for Power Automate to integrate better with Microsoft Teams: For a selected message and When a new team member is added. In this post I will go you in details through the first one from them.
Not so long ago I wrote a post where I was describing how to integrate WinAutomation with UI flows (here). It didn’t take much time for Microsoft to release a dedicated connector, that does the same thing, but well… Is much easier to use!
With this new trigger you can add create a new level of governance for your Microsoft Teams. Especially when speaking about the on-boarding users or other automated processes for newly added Teams members.
Power Virtual Agents has just been equipped with the new functionality called “global variables”. With it we are now able to chain topics’ conversation and still be able to know the context from previous topics. Also – bots can be given the context from external applications using those variables. How to do it? Let me show you.
