How to build a Flow to automatically send an email when a message is added to a Microsoft Teams Channel – 10 steps

Business scenario: Within the Microsoft Teams environment, you will have multiple Teams, and within each Team, you can have several Channels. For example, you might have a Team for each department and then several Channels for individual projects. It can be difficult to keep track of conversations across all these channels and you might miss new messages. Microsoft Teams will automatically notify you when you have been @-tagged in a message but if a message is added without you being tagged, the only indication is that the Channel name will be displayed as bold text, which can easily be missed. Follow the 10 easy steps described in this guide to ensure you get an email notification when a message is added to a specific Microsoft Teams Channel.
