Microsoft Teams

The Microsoft Teams modules enable you to monitor, list, create, update, delete, and retrieve teams and channels in your Microsoft Teams account.

Getting Started with Microsoft Teams

Prerequisites

  • Microsoft business account (not personal)

  • You should be an admin of the account

  • Microsoft Office 365 Premium activated for your admin business account

In order to use Microsoft Teams with Make, it is necessary to have a Microsoft Teams account. If you do not have one, you can create a Microsoft Teams account at www.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoft-365/business.

Note

The module dialog fields that are displayed in bold (in the Make scenario, not in this documentation article) are mandatory!

To connect your Microsoft Teams account to Make follow the general instructions for Connecting to services.

After you click the Continue button, Make will redirect you to the Microsoft Teams website where you will be prompted to grant Make access to your account.
