PVA Response Support some portions of Markdown formatting!!!!

I was working with trying to format responses and it appears that we can work around the lack of formatting within the tool by leveraging Markdown syntax in the responses from Flow which is super helpful for displaying sets of data. It is not truly a rich format yet, but it is getting better!

 

I setup my response in flow with a string, starting value:
| State | Count |

| ----- | -----|

 

From there, I iterated through the responses and appended to the string for each one, note the pipe characters injected in the Markdown Example Image.

Nice!!!!

 

I found it does NOT work well in teams though. It seems like teams chat just shows the full Markdown string.

Also I was able to insert markdown directly into the PVA (no Power Automate needed).
The GIF is little bit tricky tho. I had to insert it as a hyperlink.

You can use a Power Automate flow to insert a video thumbnail into you Dialog in Power VA via markdown.

 

Example of markdown:

[![Intro to Power Virtual Agents](https://img.youtube.com/vi/J5i7h4Uzju4/0.jpg)]

Clicking on the image icon in Dialog will play the Video in a new tab.
