Can you @ Mention anyone in Teams from a flow?

Seems to just come across as a text value.  Thanks!

Missing a step.

 

You can add MENTIONS. Posting this response a couple years later... 

 

STEP 1: Type message then click "</>" icon from the message editor bar to show code.

STEP 2: Then add <at>mention@company.com</at>

 

You will see <p> and </p> surrounding all of your text. Do not change. This is CSS coding language (cascading style sheets) for HTML or structured documents.

 

This solution is missing a step, which some folks may not catch if not familiar with CCS.

I got the same thing. Prior solutions were missing a step. After typing then click "</>" icon from the message editor bar to show code. Far right above message window. Then add <at>mention@company.com</at>

Yup. They missed a step in their instructions. After typing then click "</>" icon from the message editor bar to show code. Far right above message window. Then add <at>mention@company.com</at>

To Everyone having the Issue in Logic Apps that the mention tag '<a>tag@tag.com</a>' gets rendered as a string in the teams message.

 

If you initialize a String variable and then use the Variable in the Teams Message Action it will actually work.

I have tried everything here and it doesn't work:

 

1. use the code formatter button

2. initialise a variable

3. use <at>email@add.com</at>

4. use message posting / adaptive cards

 

nothing works.

Have you tried using the "get an @mention token for a user" or the one for a tag  step in Power Automate?

I'm not sure if it works with adaptive cards but it's been working for me with message posting in channels or chats.

Prior to the message post step, create a step to "get an @mention token for a user". In the step, enter the recipient's email address. Then, in your message post, select the @mention token from the list of dynamic content to put it in your message. That should do the trick.

You can alternatively create a step to "get an @mention token for a tag". This requires that you have created tags in a team. For example, If you want to target only the AP staff in the Accounting team, you can create a tag in its team for the AP staff and only the AP staff to this tag. Now, in Power automate in the step to get an @mention token for a tag, you can specify the team and select one of the tags available for that team. You can then use that value from the dynamic content list to put it in your message posting step.

hi @SCBPC thanks for responding.

 

I'm trying to respond to the team, so single user won't do

 

I've tried a few different approaches the closest I've got is:

 

1. Sharepoint list item created

2. Automate Posts to a channel 

3. Automate gets channel members

4. Automate loops through each member

5. Automate posts a notification of the channel post

 

The problem here is that the notification and channel post are not related, clicking the notification DOESN'T take them to the channel. if I could do it with json, that would close the loop

 

Just so you know I did it.

 

What doesn't happen is the channel message doesn't contain "@team" however you can link the feed notification with the message ID that's created, see below flow.

 

The only problem now is that I get "Person via Power Automate hh:mm" above the card - is there a way to remove that?

like the loop to iterate through each member to post the feed notification.

 

I'm not sure if the poster's name ("user via power automate flow") can be removed. Maybe you can change the Post As and set it to yourself or someone else, if possible, but it's still going to show the message sent as someone. Curious to see if/how you're able to accomplish that.

I've had a look around and found some posts - the lame excuse of "it's to do with GDPR and security" and "you can be spammed and not know who did it".... my answer to that would be to just move the text to on hover much like microsoft does with the People web part in SharePoint.

 

poor excuse for poor implementation.
