Getting the Current MS Team to Communicate with PowerApps Tab

Hi all,

 

I have a PowerApps tab embedded into a MS Team channel. I have been trying to find a way of passing the current MS Team display name into PowerApps so that I can filter things based off the current Team name. There is already an MSTeams connector in PowerApps but the closest I can get to solving my problem is by listing all the Teams and getting the user to choose their current one, which isn't great. Does anyone have any idea of how this could be achieved?

 

Thanks.

Hi @ajennings1 

 

Currently PowerApps running in the cointext of MS Teams is like an iframe

It has no information as to which team it is connected to

 

There is no way to pass the contetx to PowerApps at the moment

This would be a good UserVoice Item

Re: Getting the Current MS Team to Communicate with PowerApps Tab

I want to modify url for my powerapps app to add parameters via url.

 

Let's say I am able to provision new "MS Teams" team with Flow. I want the newly created team to have a tab with my app, where url would carry parameter with pre-specified value (defined as part of creation of the team).
