How to display Microsoft Teams Information in PowerApp Form

Good day, 

 

I have a  Teams Request PowerApp, where user fills up a request, and saves the Data to a sharepoint Online List. 

 

When the admin views the data request, i would like to get the Teams Information from Microsoft Teams, so that i can show information to the requestor. 

 

So i Added a Teams datasource:

Then i want the form to connect to this datasource, i cannot find the teams datasource in the Data Source  UI. but i somehow manage to find the Teams reference in the Formula bar, and i see the functions.

i used the GetAllteams method, but after that the form is still empty, and in the datasource, i cannot find the teams. 

I don't know how to get the fields of that method and put it in the form.

I cannot find any complete documentation on how to use the Team connector on PowerApps, maybe because now its still in preview. 

 

I would like to get the Team Information ( team name, members, conversations, channels) and show it in my PowerApp. 

Can anyone help me? 

 

Thank you very much. 

Yours sincerely, 

 

Rommel

Hi rommeldvo,

 

I found this documentation about the connector Microsoft Teams, please check it for more details:
https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/connectors/teams/

 

From the doc we know that GetAllTeams will return Team Id, Display Name, Description.

Please add a Gallery control to return all teams. Set the Gallery’s item property as:
MicrosoftTeams.GetAllTeams().value

 

This function will return all the items under your account.

Please try it on your side. Hope this could be a reference for you.

Hi

I've searched around and this appears to be the only thread covering this topic.

I've manged to use PowerApps to connect to Teams, pull out the teams list, team channels, create new channels and post messages to the channel.

Incidentally, if posting a mesage this is the format to use (took ages to find it):

 

MicrosoftTeams.PostMessageToChannel(   

"[Team GUID]",   

"[Channel GUID]",    

{body:{content:"Hello World Test",contentType:0}}  

)

 

Set the contentType: 0 for text or 1 for html.

 

However, there doesn't appear to be any way to display the Team Channel messages in PowerApps - I was expecting something like... GetMessagesFromChannel(...) or similar.

 

Does anyone know how to retrive messages from a Teams Channel and display them in PowerApps?

 

Thanks in Advance.

Cheers
Gary
