Getting Channel To Display Bold when a new message arrives

Hey there,

I am posting a message to another channel when a message appears in a test channel for now.  Seeing I cannot get the team mentions to work I am leveraging this for now.  My issue is when the message is posted in the other channel the name doesn't go bold to show there is a new message in there.

 

Here is my flow.

Hi @stevenls ,

 

Yes, I'm afraid that the function to mention the channel in a post is not supported in Microsoft flow currently and there is no any way to change it to bold currently.

Ignore Variable 3 - that is my weak attempt of trying to set up a mention for a channel.

Hi @stevenls ,

 

Could you please take a try with syntax as below to mention a person or a group?

<at>name@example.com</at>

In this instance there is no way I know of to mention a channel in the post.  It is purely just sending a message to the Channel - it just doesn't change the name to bold when a new message arrives.
