Then you will be asked to log in to your MS Teams account.
Yay! 🎉 You have successfully connected your account to MS Teams. Now you can get busy building recipes to communicate efficiently with your team!
So how does it work?
Once you've chosen one of the six recipes and authorized monday.com to integrate with MS Teams, you will arrive to the integration window. This is where you will be able to set up your integration. You can customize the message that will be sent to the MS teams team in channel.
Use case 1: When an item is created, notify team in channel
This can be helpful to stay on top of new tasks and items being added to a group so you can be instantly notified of new tasks that are added to a board and make sure the entire team is aligned! First, begin by choosing the message you want to appear in MS Teams. You can customize and include the user name who created it, the board name, and the item name as well as your custom message about it!
Once done, choose any channel in any team from your MS Teams account you want to be notified of this message!
Use case 2: When a status changes to something, notify team in channel
This is extremely helpful to stay up to date on the progress of the status of your projects and tasks. You can notify those who need to know when something is stuck or done without having to check-in or schedule meetings. Sit back and know that once it has been updated, your entire team will be notified!
First, choose the status that you want to keep track of:
Then choose the status that you want to be notified of changing, or you can choose anything to stay on top of each change.
Once you have created the custom message, and chosen your desired channel in the team, you are all set!
This is the way the message will appear in MS Teams so you know it is coming from monday.com:
This really helps teams work efficiently and closely together on projects, especially with many task owners and dependent tasks.
Microsoft Teams App
In addition of the Microsoft Teams integration, you can also use the Microsoft Teams App. You may wonder, what's the difference between both? Keep reading to find out 👇
- Microsoft Team App
The Microsoft Teams App allows you to add any monday.com boards directly into your Microsoft teams channels. With this App, you will also be able to customize which notifications from your monday boards you'd like to receive. These notifications will be sent only to you through the monday chatbot.
- Microsoft Teams integration
The Microsoft Teams Integration allows you to trigger specific actions when a condition is met. Unlike the Microsoft Teams App, with the Microsoft Integration any notification from a trigger will be sent to the whole channel.
