If Powerapps is integrated in Teams, Can it detect a selected Channel?

Hi all,

 

I have a PowerApp, which funcktions as a project status updater. I have some channels in teams that is equal to a project. Each project should be able to update it's status through the App. This they can, but they have to select their project first. 

 

Is it possible for PowerApps to detect which channel the user is in?

 

Thanks in advance

Cheers

Jesper

Re: If Powerapps is integrated in Teams, Can it detect a selected Channel?

Hi @Jesper_HB,

Do you embed an app within your MS Teams Channels?

Do you want to detect the current selected channel within your embedded app?

If you want to detect the current selected channel within your embedded app, I afraid that there is no way to achieve your needs in PowerApps currently.

Currently, there is no available function supported within PowerApps to detect the current selected channel in a embedded app.

If you would like this feature to be added in PowerApps, please submit an idea to PowerApps Ideas Forum:

Hi Kris,

 

Thank you for your answer, even though it wasn't what I hoped it would be 🙂

 

But, you are stated correctly, that I have added the PowerApp as a tab, and would like the PowerApp to detect which channel it's in.

 

I will make a request for this to be added in the next ( 😉 ) patch.
