Getting Unauthorized error on flow bot Post a reply to a message V2

I had created a recurrence Flow to reply to an announcement message so it can bring the announcement to the front at the set time.

It worked perfectly this morning when I set it to happen every 2 hours.

However, after I change it to every 30 min, it stopped working.

The Run report shows that the Recurrence is okay, but the Post a reply to a message is giving the Unauthorized error Status code 401

Please help

Hi @minniep 


There might be a chance that the Teams Administrator settings does not allow the bot to post messages. Can you check that in the teams admin center and confirm? 


Hope this Helps!

I doubt ... as the reply was working in the morning until I changed the word in the reply from "Push" to "Bump"

and I am not 100% sure if it is the word that caused it as I deleted the original Flow that I set up and test on the new one with "Bump" didn't work ..... then before I gave up I just thought whatsoever .... and put the reply msg back to "Push" ...... then the magic happened... the flow worked again.........................
