Microsoft Teams connector

What is Microsoft Teams?

Microsoft Teams is a collaborative workspace within Microsoft 365 that acts as a central hub for workplace conversations, collaborative teamwork, video chats and document sharing, all designed to aid worker productivity in a unified suite of tools.

Getting started with Kissflow's Microsoft Teams integration

Kissflow's Microsoft Teams connector enables you to connect with Microsoft Teams instantly and to automate your work with other Kissflow apps and popular third-party apps. To access this feature, you must have a valid Microsoft Teams account and be a paid Kissflow customer. The Microsoft Teams connector allows you to receive data from other flows or apps and perform specific actions and search actions in Microsoft Teams. For now, the connector for Microsoft Teams does not support any trigger events.

Consider the following scenario: you connect your Kissflow Board to Microsoft Teams. As a result, whenever a new item is added to your Kissflow Board, a message with item details can be delivered to a channel in Microsoft Teams.
