Trigger topic based on Event Received (NOT Phrase)

Posted on by 26

Hi All,


Does anyone know how to use the "Event Received" trigger type?

I've tried searching but could find very little detail on this. The MS documentation doesn't provide much help.

Using Topic Triggers - Microsoft Copilot Studio | Microsoft Learn

What I want to do is be able to do is click a button in a canvas app which sends an event to the bot and triggers a topic. Is this possible?

 

Thanks

    This looks like exactly what I'm looking for thanks! Just to confirm this will work for copilot studio (pva) not just botframework right?

    Hi Audrie, I'd like to be able to trigger topics or send information to the bot without the user typing that information. For example, by clicking a button in the app, a text variable is sent to the bot. I suspect this is not yet possible but maybe on the roadmap?

    If you are planning to put the chatbot control into a Power Apps application then the trigger will happen automatically as the end user queries the chatbot. Would that approach work for you - or are you trying to trigger the bot remotely?

    To answer your direct question, here is the documentation on sending events as well:
