Dear All,

 

Is it possible to have a button in Power Apps to make Teams chat and Teams call from the app? This is my mock-up Screen

No this is not possible to do.

 

If you'd like to see Teams chat in a future version of PowerApps you can vote for the Idea here

You CAN make phone calls from PowerApps using this method, however, the call will be placed from the phone's default app not Teams.

Hi @pollyzzz ,

Do you want to have a button in Power Apps to make Teams chat and Teams call from the app?

 

If you want to have a button in Power Apps to make Teams chat and Teams call from the app, I afraid that there is no way to achieve your needs in PowerApps currently.

 

The "Send a chat" action and "Send a Call" action is not supported under Teams connector in PowerApps. If you would like this feature to be added in PowerApps, please submit an idea to PowerApps Ideas Forum:

https://powerusers.microsoft.com/t5/Power-Apps-Ideas/idb-p/PowerAppsIdeas

 

If you want to make a Chat mechanism in PowerApps, please check and see if the following video would help in your scenario:

Looks like it is agreed.  Using Teams Call & Chat from PowerApps is not possible.

You can check the solution here -> https://powerusers.microsoft.com/t5/Building-Power-Apps/How-do-I-launch-Teams-via-PowerApps-on-Andro...

 

Basically, it is calling to:

Launch("msteams://teams.microsoft.com/l/chat/0/0?users=[EMAIL]&topicName=[TOPIC]&message=Hey I solved the problem!")
Anonymous
Not applicable

If I need to send the chat to specific user/?

 

Launch("msteams://teams.microsoft.com/l/Call/0/0?users=[EMAIL]&topicName=[TOPIC]&message=Hey I solved the problem!")

 

If I change to Call instead of chat, Teams open the meeting window, and I want to make a call.

So I looked through a number of different posts and sites to try to get this to work and finally figured it out. 

 

For starters: the code that @francas posted works to have Teams start a new chat. For my app, I wanted to be able to search a directory and have the email automatically fill in the EMAIL spot in the code. So, I had to create a next box and Concatenate the first part of the code: "msteams://teams.microsoft.com/l/chat/0/0?users=" and then added a comma, then had the textbox that was reflecting the users email in it:
Concatenate("msteams://teams.microsoft.com/l/chat/0/0?users=",Label9) 

 

Then in order for the button in the Gallery that was displaying the user I wanted, on the action button I set the OnClick input to be: "Launch"(the label name where the code above is)"". And it consistently opened up a new Teams Chat with the desired contact already selected.

 

Hope this helps people here and others that want to do this!

 

Happy PowerApping!
