Return file in chat with a Copilot

Posted on by 5



I have a flow that gets data from a PBI dataset and creates a csv table with the data.


Question: How to return the csv file to the chat?


The workaround I'm doing is saving the file on SharePoint and then return the link to the file, but I would like to return the file instead of a link.


Is this possible?

    That depends on what you mean by "return the file to the chat". You can easily return the contents of a CSV file to the chat. But I suspect you want to return the file so it can be downloaded. For that returning a link is about all that you can do. There's nothing built into the chat window that lets you download a file other than by clicking on a link.
