Click on the Save button to activate the connection. When this step is finished, you are able to start adding the Microsoft Teams integration to your DutyCalls channels.


Add the Microsoft Teams integration to a channel

Now that the DutyCalls connector has been configured on a Microsoft Teams channel, something else needs to be done before messages (event updates) are posted to Microsoft Teams and that is adding a channel integration within DutyCalls.

  1. Navigate to Channels > Click on the Settings button of your desired channel > Select the Integrations tab > Click on the Add integration button to add a new integration.

  2. Select Microsoft Teams from the dropdown list. Enter a friendly Name for the integration. This could be anything, as long as it clarifies what integration is involved. After that, enter the URL you copied earlier. Lastly, select the events from which you want to receive updates for.
