Microsoft Teams Integration

With our brand new MS Teams integration, you are now able to instantly turn updates, new items and changes from a specific item into messages in MS Teams so everyone will have the most up to date information and be able to work from both platforms and stay synchronized!  

 

How to add it to your workflow?

Step 1

To add an Integration, go to the board you want to create an Integration for and click on the Integration button, located on the upper right of your screen as below:

Step 2

Once you click on the MS Teams integration banner you will find the recipes the integration offers:

  • When date arrives, notify team in channel
  • When an item is created, notify team in channel 
  • When a Status changes to something, notify team in channel
  • When a column changes, notify team in channel
  • When an update is posted in this item, send it to team in channel
  • When any update is posted, send it to team in  channel

Select the integration you wish to create.

Step 3

Once you click on one of the recipes you will be asked to enter connect your monday.com account with your MS Teams account :

Note:  In order to create the connection you need to have admin access to your MS Teams account, if you don't have admin access you will not be able to create the connection. 

 

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!

Note:  We have created pre-defined notification message if you wish to use it (and not custom your own notification 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.
