Send a message containing @group_name using @mentions feature

Hello,

 

I know how <at>user@company.com</at> works in Power Automate.  What I want to achieve is that I want to be able to send a message containing "@group_name" as the Flow bot to a Teams channel.  The background of this is that my company has various group channels and I want to notify everyone in the group when a message is posted to a Teams channel. 

 

I have already tried <at>group_name@company.com</at> but it did not work.  <at>group_name</at> did not work either.

Hi! Sorry i am an average Teams connector user, so not sure the feature you are asking for is currently supported.

According to this thread, almost one year ago, the status was the following:

 

At the moment it doesn't @ the group as you would expect. This is something that would be good and recommend you suggest this here! https://powerusers.microsoft.com/t5/Flow-Ideas/idb-p/FlowIdeas


But, just in case nobody else points us to the right direction, a potential workaround is to use flow to send the email notification instead by getting first the group members list
Hope this helps

@efialttes  thank you for your reply.  I see this feature is not supported.  The workaround you mentioned does work.  In my company, almost all internal communication takes place on Teams channels so it would be great if Microsoft implements the feature.   

@bs-dev001 

I also see it very useful. Let's hope Microsoft will take this new feature into account on future releases
