In this post I would like to share with you my latest findings about the ways you can mention actually anything in Microsoft Teams in messages sent from Power Automate, whether it is a user, a tag, a channel or a team.
In Adaptive Cards there are multiple ways to show and hide content depending on other content or conditions, or even user interaction. But despite that most of them is available since the version 1.2 (so quite early) it requires a bit of knowledge how to actually implement them.
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.
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.
I was recently taking part in a Regarding365 hackathon where our goal was to build solutions for companies struggling with communications during the time of COVID-19 pandemic. Sometime after a friend of mine asked me a question about building the same solution I did during that hackathon. The solution was – QnA chatbot using QnA maker as a database. How to do it? Read on!
It took me a little more time than I was expecting, but here it is! The post you are now reading is the last part of the 4-parts series of posts dedicated to Microsoft Adaptive Cards. Information in this post is valid for the September 2019. Because this technology is continuously changing, the knowledge from this post may in some parts get outdated, however I will do my best to update it accordingly.
