2. Create your Power Virtual Agent chatbot and publish it in Teams
Within Teams, create the chatbot you want. Create any topics you want the bot to handle too. My one is simply just a custom greeting explaining how the bot works. You will notice in the image above that the bot tells the user to join a particular Microsoft Team. This is because in order to for the user to be a recipient of the proactive message, we need to get their email address. You will need to be an admin of the Team in order to connect to it and get the user’s details. This will make more sense when we get to the flow coming up soon.
Publish your bot, and select to ‘make the bot available to others’. Click on Availability options and select the ‘Show to my teammates and shared users’ option. Once published here, the bot will be shown in the app catalog for colleagues to install.
