Calendar Integration in Teams Bot

Occasional Contributor

Hi Team,


Below is the requirement where in need your help to discuss and understand the best ways to implement. We have a Bot hosted on teams using Bot framework and need to give the users capability to book meeting and room. The room here is the external system not the outlook rooms. Hence booking meeting online and room are going to be hand in hand for the conversation. Trying to understand if we could leverage the existing calendar app via Bot and continue with room booking. Can we load the calendar meeting pop up in Bot using task modules and continue the other conversations ? Challenges we have currently is Bot cannot do a people search to be able to add attendees. This needs a custom form to be called. Kindly please comment.
