Hello.

 

I've built an API that returns some data. For now, let's say it returns the time, date, and the location of the person calling the API through their browser.

 

I want to create a chat-bot which when pinged to from the teams channel, calls the API and displays the result. I know that I can do this using the tabs feature but I want to be able to call it from the channel itself.

 

Can this be done using power tools in team? If so, how?

 

Thanks.
