User Presence in Teams, use it in PowerApp

Hello,

 

I would like to use the User Presence in a powerApp.

 

How can I get this status ( Available, Out of Office, Busy, Busy In a call ... ).

 

How can be notified of changes ?

 

Thanks.

Hi @Jean-Christophe,

 

I was working exacly on this kind of topic today, the only information I found was using MS Graph API however, here is the workaround to use PoweAutomate and get the status of the user:

 

You will need to use the operator called Send an HTTP request to Sharepoint:

RJ2K1_0-1642042719578.png

Once you select that, please enter the following information:

RJ2K1_2-1642045144432.png

 

Uri: /v1/users/{id}/presence | Please replace the "{id}" with the user id that you need to found.

For example: /v1/users/{id}/presence ---> /v1/users/dc74d9bb-6afe-433d-8eaa-e39d80d3a647/presence

 

If you run the flow you will get a JSON output with all the information of the presence of the user:

 

 

{
  "calendarData": {
    "isOutOfOffice": false
  },
  "forcedAvailability": {
    "expiry": "2022-01-20T02:34:00.0892683Z",
    "availability": "Available",
    "activity": "Available",
    "publishTime": "2022-01-13T02:34:00.0892683Z"
  },
  "capabilities": [
    "Audio",
    "Video"
  ],
  "availability": "Available",
  "activity": "Available",
  "lastActiveTime": "2022-01-13T02:14:38.545Z",
  "nextRefreshTime": "2022-01-13T02:49:38.545Z",
  "deviceType": "Desktop",
  "sequenceNumber": 64204440
}

 

If you want to use a condition let say "If the user is with the status Do not Disturb don't send the email"

In order to do that you need to Parse the JSON using the operation called "Parse JSON"

 

This operation will request you 2 things, the content and the Schema of the JSON

for the content use the output of the previous task and for the Schema you will need to copy the JSON output and paste it into the option called "Generate a Schema"

 

RJ2K1_3-1642045573815.png

 

Schema:

RJ2K1_4-1642045601488.png

The Schema will make the JSON content like a "usable variables"

 

Now you can use a Condition and comparate the availability of the user:

RJ2K1_5-1642045715697.png

Please keep in mind that the status shound be write like this:

  • Available
    Busy
    DoNotDisturb
    BeRightBack
    Away
    Offline

If you have any question just let me know!!

I hope this work for you 😀

They answer is yes, you can get notified on status change.
MS Teams presence supports "change notification" feature:

Hi @RJ2K1,

 

I am really thankful for your idea, i just have one problem, when i try to do the flow this appears, 

alejandraislas2_0-1642115672899.png

I don't know if I am missing something, 

Thanks in advance for your help! 🙂

 

You could work around that using expression :

string('https://presence.teams.microsoft.com')

this works for me:

I'm kicking the automate from my Power App and the automate is going to grab the requesters presence.  I have the presence in Graph API consented.  What I and running into is the Automate when tested will get back my presence with no issues, but once change it to requesters presence it errors in the Send an Http Request to SharePoint method Get with 404 Not found.

I have followed the following:

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/graph/api/presence-get?view=graph-rest-1.0&tabs=http#code-try-9
https://powerusers.microsoft.com/t5/Building-Power-Apps/User-Presence-in-Teams-use-it-in-PowerApp/td...

 

@mdevaney and @RJ2K1 what would you say I did incorrectly or am missing that is not stated in this post?
@Pstork1 including you too in case you might have insight also.  Appreciate each of you and your time.  Thank you.

@RJ2K1 This is great, way easier that trying to use http request with Graph API.

 

I manage to make it work using /v1/me/presence

 

BUT when i use the /v1/users/{id}/presence does not work.

 

  • I tried using the ID from the USERS table in Dataverse ('systemuserid') 
  • Tried using the ID of power automate 'Get my profile'

None of them worked.

 

How are you getting the ID or what ID are you using for the users?

 

Appreciated!

@Danauit just seen your post.  I'll let you know since April 2022 RJ2K1 never got back to me either.  What I found that did work is I created a custom connector and then tied that to a parent/child automate.  The automate running the custom connector was ran using a system account in the parent/child relationship.  I too tried and tired to get RJ2K1's solution to work but no go.  It has potential, but does require a portion of it to utilize premium but the users of the App don't have to have premium since the child automate is running the custom connector with the service account.  I never really incorporated it into a solution build, mainly wanted to see if I could make it happen and I did with some help from my coworkers where I got stuck.  Hope you was able to figure something out or at least this gives you another angle. 😊

Hi there,

 

When trying to get this working by initiating the power automate flow from powerapps, I keep running into an issue where the flow itself cannot be saved, the error states the following; Request to XRM API failed with server error: 'Failed to find connection'.  I have checked all relevant power platform connections, and cannot find any issue.

 

This is when the the trigger is set to powerapps (button), if I change the trigger to a manual trigger, I can save the flow - but then I have no method of initiating the flow from powerapps. 

 

Any chance of a screenshot of how your flow has been configured?

 

Thanks in advance

Thanks! This worked as an alternative to this: Teams Status Update via Power Automate - DamoBird365.

 

Any tips on how to change the datetime?

Hi @alejandraislas2 .

 

I'm trying to use the Send an HTTP request to Sharepoint action in order to check the status of other users.

Although it does work for /me, when I try to use it with /users/{id}/presence, I get a 401 (unauthorized) result.

 

Is this endpoint still working and I'm doing something wrong here, or was it disabled since you suggested this approach?
