Send a message to MS Teams User

Hello all, excited to possibly use the technology as a solution. I will share the use case please advise if possible.

 

I would like to send the same message to individuals contained in an Excel File identified by Email Address

  • Users are not members of a channel or specific team just part of the enterprise instance of MS Teams
  • The goal is to not have them have to join a specific group or install anything additional just have MS Teams and be on the network
  • Would be nice if there could also be some type of dialogue between the bot/PVA and user but not manadatory  

Is this possible?

Help @Nik_Johnson 

 

You can use Power Automate to do this:

Check out this guide to build a flow that does this:

https://sharepains.com/2020/07/07/mention-microsoft-teams-power-automate/#Running_a_flow_to_mention_...

In PVA just call the action for power automate and build the flow as per the guide above.

 

you can get the person interacting with the bot by following my guide here:

Thank you for your response @Jcook  2 questions 
1. Does the @Mention create a private chat/message in teams? 
2. If it does can you feed a collection of names to it by way of a loop or reading from a flat file?  

Hi @Nik_Johnson 

 

Sorry for the late reply.

 

1. The mention token can be used in Channels or private chats. It depends on which action you use the token in.

2. Yes you should be able to create a Apply to each loop to get a list of mention tokens which can be used

 

Thanks
