Microsoft Teams: Workflows App

Microsoft Teams, the hub for teamwork and collaboration, is introducing a new app called Workflows to simplify and streamline the automation of tasks and processes. Workflows is powered by Power Automate, a comprehensive solution for data governance, risk, and compliance.

With Workflows, users can access all the workflow capabilities in Teams from a single app. They can create, manage, and run workflows that connect to various Microsoft 365 workloads, such as Exchange, SharePoint, OneDrive, Outlook, and more. They can also use hundreds of pre-built connectors and templates to integrate with external services and systems.

Workflows also offers a new way to initiate workflows in Teams: the Message Extension. The Message Extension allows users to interact with workflows through buttons and forms in the Teams client. They can search for or start actions in an external system from the compose message area, the command box, or directly from a message. For example, they can create an invoice, reserve a resource, or search for a work item without leaving Teams.

The Message Extension is an addition to the existing Message Actions, which enable users to create workflows from the overflow menu of a Teams message. Both Message Extension and Message Actions use the Bot Framework’s messaging schema and secure communication protocol to communicate with the web service that hosts the workflow logic.

By using Workflows, users can save time and effort by automating repetitive tasks and business processes. They can also improve their productivity and collaboration by sharing the results of their workflows with their team members in the form of rich cards. Workflows is designed to empower everyone to build automated processes using low-code drag-and-drop tools and AI assistance.

Workflows is expected to be available soon for all Teams users.
