Can I use PVA to respond to a chat directed to me in Teams?

Posted on by 4

I have created a chatbot that people can summon, but I want something different. When someone messages me on Teams, I want a chatbot to reply when, say, my manager is messaging me to make sure I'm in front of Teams.  Is this possible?  Thanks!

    @Ultron ,

     

    Also, it is in Preview, but you can test this one too: Notify bot users in Teams with proactive messages and cards - Power Virtual Agents | Microsoft Docs

    Thank you!  PVA is pretty exciting.

    Hi @Ultron ,

     

    Good use-case 😄 (funny also)

     

    The answer is: No, you can't send proactive messages using the PVA bot yet on Teams.

    It's a planned feature: Start bot conversations with proactive triggers | Microsoft Docs

     

    BUT... you can create partially this automation using Power Automate + Teams using this trigger: Microsoft Teams - Connectors | Microsoft Docs

     

    Also, if you have any Power Automate queries, you can raise a topic here: Microsoft Power Automate Community - Power Platform Community
