I am currently working on Time off app where you can schedule a vacation or a business lunch, etc. because our company now doing everything from teams. I would like to make a bot which can send to a manager of the department a massage with a buttons of Approve or denied of a employee which is asking for an vacation from date X to date Y.
I'm super new to power virtual agents and just wondering if this is possible?
Thank you for your answer.
There are a number of community videos on this topic, here is a good one I found with a cursory search
This is a great use case for PVA and flows, good luck!
Since the Approvals app is now integrated into teams, which can be leveraged by Power Automate.
So you could create a bot that the end user interacts with. The bot then kicks off a flow that sends a approval for that request.(https://flow.microsoft.com/en-us/blog/approvals-app-now-available-on-microsoft-teams/)
After tue approval, you can have the flow use the Send a message from a flow bot to send the approval response outcome.
Hi @jakubz, I myself use an approval flow inside the bot, the user makes a purchase request through the chatbot, the flow triggers the power automate that does the following actions:
Receives the data sent by the bot
Registers the request data in Sharepoint
Sends it to the manager requesting the approval, with a condition that if the value is above X the second line manager must approve it, and the flow sends the email and waits for the approval return.
All this through the PA. There is also a request ID for the user where in another flow he can check the status of his request.
I'm studying ways to improve the flow.
Did I answer your question?😉
