How to get group and channel NAME from IDs in Teams with Flow?

Hi,

I've created a Flow task when "I am "@" mentioned" using trigger to send me an email. I'd like to add the NAME of the group and the channel into the subject of email. How is it possible? Based on this forum message (Get Teams name and Teams Channel) I could get the group and channel IDs, but not the NAMEs.

Thanks in advance for any help!

Attila

Hi @AttiM ,

 

I agree with yashag2255. Since you have already specified Team(Group) name and Channel name when configuring the trigger, you should configure this information directly into the Email subject.

Unless you want to apply this Flow to multiple Groups or channels, and you want to reduce the similar custom steps to configure Subject using Expression.

Or you want to go deeper into these actions, you could refer to the following methods.

 

  • First, use the method involved in the link you mentioned to get the Team ID and Group ID.
  • Then use the List Teams action to get all the Teams, configure the Filter array to filter out the Teams corresponding to the specified Teams ID.
  • You can also use a similar method to get the Channel name.

Hey @AttiM 

 

The "When I am mentioned in a team channel" trigger already takes the team and channel as an input from you. It does not return you the values of those teams and channels once triggered. But now that you are already providing those details, you can customize your email action and include that as a hard coded string in the email action itself:

Hope this Helps!

Hi 

 

Thank you so much for your detailed answer! Yes, this is the situation: I want to apply this Flow to multiple Groups or channels (and maybe share it with my colleagues) so I want to reduce the custom steps to configure Subject using Expression.

 

With the help of your screenshots I could build my flow, similar like yours. 

The question: how can I insert the the constructed TeamName of Apply to each and ChannelName of Apply to each 2 (as in your example) in my Send an email action's subject and body?

In the Dynamic content list I can see the following (How can I insert my screenshots? 😕 )

Filter channel:

- Channel Description

- Channel Id

- Channel Name

List Channels:

- Channel Description

- Channel Id

- Channel Name

Filter Team

- Team Description

- Team Id

- Team Name

List Teams

- Team Description

- Team Id

- Team Name

ChannelID

- Output

TeamID

- Output

and the other built-in content.

But I cannot see the constructed TeamName of Apply to each and ChannelName of Apply to each 2 wich contanied the real names of them - if I believe well.

 

Could you finish your training with this last step?

 

Thanks in advance,

Attila

For anyone finding this in 2024, there now appears to be a "Conversation Name" dynamic content value that you can use (make sure you check the output body), I'm using a "for selected message" trigger and it is availible.

Example: @{triggerBody()?['teamsFlowRunContext']?['conversation']?['name']}

Hello Everyone - As I can see, there is no way to get the Group Chat Name in 2024. Both dynamic fields below result with the long string ID:

I am also chasing for the possibility to get the Group Chat Name and add it along to the record stored in SharePoint. Happy to hear from you.
