Inline images and videos in the Power Platform Release Plan 2021 Wave 2 - any information on this?

Hi All,

IN the Power Platform Release Plan, 2021 Wave 2, here is what it says about Power Virtual Agents:
https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/power-platform-release-plan/2021wave2/

"PVA brings improvements in the authoring experience with variable passing between topics, list variables, inline images and videos, regular expressions in custom entities, and commenting. Also included is bot creation from templates, sharing bots with security groups, and new AI capabilities to build your bots automatically from website content."

When I look at the New and Planned Features, which holds all of the above mentioned EXCEPT for inline images and videos - I'm wondering where this feature fits in and what it looks like: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/power-platform-release-plan/2021wave2/power-virtual-agents/planned-...
IS there a timeline for inline images and videos within PVA?

Thanks,

No problem at all - please give me a shout if you need any help with the markdown. One tip from me is to use Power Automate to markdown and then provide outputs to PVA - please see screenshot below of what my flow looks like (obviously you can branch it out etc., I just wanted to show you the output) and how it comes out in the PVA! 

 

To make it easier for you - here's the snippet for embedding inline images - just replace the text in brackets with your hyperlink (make sure that you don't accidentally remove the brackets!)

Thank you! We would really appreciate some clarification on this. 

Hi PVA Team,

Wondered if you had any insight, please, on the inline images and videos? We'd really appreciate it.

Hi @DS2 ,

 

While you're waiting for a response from the PVA team, you can go two ways about this:

 

- either use markdown language to embed inline images and videos (please note that for videos, you'll only be able to embed the URL with the accompanying thumbnail and it will open in a new browser tab for the end user),

- if you'd like the end user to be able to play the embedded video within the bot, you could use the Bot Framework Composer and use the 'attachments' option and then 'Video Card' - here's a quick snapshot of a quick bot I've just put together for you so you can see how this looks (apologies for the non-business topic, as you can tell I'm craving cookies! 😀

 

I hope this helps you in some way!

I love it, I now want cookies too! Our biggest want was the inline images, and although we've played around with markdown (for formatting mainly) we've found it a bit hit and miss. Thanks so much.

It's always a good time for cookies! ☺

Fabulous, thank you! Although I will mark  @PowerPuffKK as the answer, it sure would be good if the PVA Team could weigh in on this one.
