Hi everyone,

We would like to create automatic Backups of our MS Teams chat files. Is there a possibility to let Flow access in-chat messages and copy them into an Excel Sheet? I couldn't find any possibility in Flow that allows it to use content outside of Channels.

 

Looking forward to hear from you guys!

Well, you could try to achieve this with Flow using Flow as a "Timer" and use Teams actions or Graph API to read Teams messagesn and store in your Excel file. I would recommend here to start a POC to see if this approach works bearing in mind you will need to access all the Teams to be able to make such "backup"
