Change Teams Notification sender or otherwise still receive notifications from my account

Hi

 

I've created a workflow that ends with posting a notification to Teams. The problem is, I don't know when the workflow has posted there because you don't receive notifications when you post yourself.

 

I either need a way to change the account the post is made from or otherwise make it that I get the notifications as well. I really don't want to go down the path of paying for an E1 licence on a generic email account, just to get the 'occasional' notification.

 

Open to suggestions.

 

Thank you

Hi Victor.

 

I did try using the V2 for Teams but it kept breaking the flow on testing. It appears not to be supported any more.

You are right that I could add to the workflow an email to myself, but as this use case expands, I've decided to bite the bullet and subscribe a new E1 account + per user flow, as a service account.

 

Thanks again for your thoughts and recommendations.

Send as a shared mailbox or as a distribution group with no members.

Thanks for the suggestion Victor, but how can you change the flow to send from a DL, particularly when it isn't an actual account. ie, I can't share it control/re-assign the flow to a DL (Can I)?

To send a notification to yourself use "Send an email (V2)" action and populate the "From (Send as)" field.

Thanks Victor, yes I can do that for email notifications however the workflow is for a MS Teams Notification.

Hi @BA-Scott , can you post a notification to a team AND send an email to yourself?
