Removing the "XXXX used Microsoft Flow to automate this notification" when posting a message as the Flow bot to a channel

I've recently started using the 'Post a message as the Flow bot to a channel' functionality -- which has been great, but I'd like to get rid of the of the "John Doe has used Microsoft Flow to automate this notification. Learn more" advertisement at the bottom. I tried looking at the flow details to see where this is originating from, but couldn't find it. Any suggestions?

Hi @Anonymous ,

I have made a test on my side, it has the smae issue with yous.

I have check the code of the 'Post a message as the Flow bot to a channel' action.

However there is no code about "XXXX used Microsoft Flow to automate this notification".

I am afraid it's the default set of the MS Teams, when you post a message via MS flow.

I am afraid it can't be removed by flow.

Seems like you can't even control where it will be displayed.  If your Adaptive card is longer it coudl eventually be right in the middle of your card.  It would be one thing if it always displayed on the bottom however that is not the case.  By having an advertisement before the the 3 buttons looks ridiculous in my opinion.

 

If they have to have this advertisement included maybe have it always display on the bottom.

Totally agree.

For reference, it appears to add to the end of the body, and puts the actions section at the very bottom of card (which is where it should be really).  The result is that it drops the text right above your links or submit buttons.

The positive is that it won't drop it in the middle of your card.

The negative is that is there at all.

I found the solution posted recently at the bottom of this thread:

https://powerusers.microsoft.com/t5/Using-Flows/Hide-footer-used-Microsoft-Flow-to-automate-this-not...

 

End your message with:

<span style="display: none">

 

I tried it and it worked for me.

This is great thanks.  However This obviously wont work at the end of the JSON code used for Adaptive Cards.  Any solution for removing this eyesore on those please?

Yes, this only works for the html formatted messages from the Flow bot.

 

Unfortunately, I have not seen any way to remove this line from the adaptive cards sent by the Flow bot. Instead, it seems to have driven others into building their own custom adaptive cards in order to get around this issue:

This is great. Thank you.

Is Microsoft so desperate that it needs to embed an add on a simple PA action???
