Using the Teams "For a selected message" trigger - can I put the message content into the Adaptive Card?

The subject of this states what I'm wanting to do and wanting to know.


Can I utilize the Instant trigger "For a selected message" in Teams and get the info from said message into the Adaptive card?

  • Flow Example: Add a 'To Do' to Microsoft To Do from a Teams Message
    • Workflow would be something like...
      • Select message in Teams by pressing the ellipsis "..." on a Teams message, select "Add To Do"
      • Adaptive card pops up: can I get the body from the selected message into this card?
      • Fill out adaptive card, set due date, etc.
      • Add 'To Do'


Let me know! Any workarounds welcome.
