Flow trigger a notification in Teams?

I have built a Flow that will post a message in Teams if based on a trigger from Power BI. The problem is it just posts the message and there is no alert/notification - like you'd get if you manually typed it with @Team or @PersonName. Any idea how do do that? There don't seem to be any options in the Team settings for a flow to trigger a notification that I can see.

That´s right! We are hope that will be much more possibilities in the Flow integration with Microsoft teams too.

Hi @EdHans!

 

Let me see if I understand your need:

 

You want to get a notification when the message is posted to Teams, is that right?

Yes. Right now the message appears, but it appears "silently" - meaning it just shows up because there is no @team or @personname in it to trigger a notification either for all team members or a specific team member.

So the only way someone sees it is to go to the Conversation view in that team and that channel, and look for it, which would only happen by coincidence and defeat the purpose of the alerting mechanism of the flow.

Yeah, unfortunately I think that there isn´t notification default for Microsoft Teams post (We can create this as a suggestion in Flow Ideas).

 

I will try some workarounds to help you to send this notification and update this post with the results ok?

well, my alternative is to just change the flow to use email, which does work. I was just hoping to contain this within teams. It does say the Teams integration for Flow is in preview, so hopefully this gets added. Silent posts (i.e. no notifications generated) don't do much good in a company with 30+ teams and well over 100 active channels.
