Mention a MS Teams Channel using Power Automate

Do you know if it's possible to mention "@" a MS Teams Channel if I follow these steps: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/business-applications-release-notes/october18/microsoft-flow/post-r...?

 

If not, is there any other way?

Hey there - Are you ok posting as the flow bot?  If so, check this article from Dennis (capitalizing on John Liu's post) about at-mentioning an entire channel.

HI @Jotad710 

 

Unfortunately, it's not possible to @mention someone. It would be super handy, though. I think this is worth submitting as an idea for future implementation:

According to this thread: https://powerusers.microsoft.com/t5/Building-Flows/Can-you-Mention-anyone-in-Teams-from-a-flow/m-p/2... is possible to @ someone. I'm not sure if it's possbile to @ a MS Teams Channel.

Hi @edgonzales ,

 

I am very new at this and I would like to use this @mention to ping my team daily for tasks.

 

How do I also get the team and channel IDs? His instructions are initializing the variable only. 
The ChannelPostUrl variable Url also looks to be dated. When I go to graph.microsoft.com/beta/teams it returns 

  "code": "InvalidAuthenticationToken",
    "message": "Access token is empty.",

Hi there - If you haven't already, check out the Graph API Explorer.  It's a handy way to find quick bits of information like those ID's, and also details out the URL/URI needed to do some really cool things.

 

Keep us posted.

-Ed

hey,

 

Is there a way to do this without the Invoke - it is a premium element of Flow and I cannot get that enabled.

 

I have mentioning working for individuals by pulling information out of a message card and then using that as a variable and then the <at></at> that variable.  Would love to have this as a solution for the channel members, just can't figure out what to do with the 'channel' link info I have.
