Post on Teams as Bot Anonymous

I have created a simple flow, when a form response is submitted > post a message on a Teams channel as a bot.


This is all working but the message is always posted as me, my personal account.


Should it not be posted as a bot, i.e - not display my name? Currently it posts as [my name] via Power Automate


I need it to post as an anonymous bot.


See images of current.

I don't believe that's possible to do, it'll always show the user whose account it's using for the Teams connection.


A workaround would be to create a new "generic" user for things like that but flow won't let you use SharePoint & Teams actions anonymously. 



@Caspar_Rubin Thanks for that.


I'm not able to create a generic account unfortunately.


I guess I'll have to accept this isn't possible.
