Good Day:

 

Does anyone know if its possible in using Microsoft Flow for helping create Tabs in Microsoft Teams after certain triggers take place? Thank you!

Hi @Juan M Baena 

 

From the documentation looks like you can create Channels, get and post a message, get the list of channels, get a list of Teams, Post a message as the flow bot to a channel. Post your own adaptive card as the flow bot to a channel, But not create a tab (yet ... try adding something to the uservoice site for Teams).

 

There a a few trigger, like when I'm mentioned in a channel, when a new channel message is posted,

 

See the docs here:

 

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/connectors/teams/

 

It is possible yes! You can use flow to call Microsoft graph to create a tab! And the flow can start with all triggers available

If you are gonna do this for several teams and new ones you need to find a way to get the correct team in the flow!

I’ve used this when I created a team with the same method , and therefore had all the details for the team

@adam deltinger nice! but a little more complex :)

Well, I’m a complex human being 🤷‍:male_sign:

@Steven Collier Great little script :)

Thank you all very much this is great! We have a bit of a unique use case where we have a content curator who can only access the Teams SharePoint web site and not the Teams UI/instance. As the content curator adds a key PDF for the Teams instance consumers, the idea possibly automating the process of a Tab creation in teams to surface the PDF file came into play. Will explore this path with the Graph API thank you again!
