M365 Changelog: Microsoft Teams: Easier discoverability of Workflows template


In Microsoft Teams, Workflow cards in chats or channels will now show the template used, with a rollout starting in June 2024 and completing in November 2024. A footer link will be added for direct template access, except for certain custom or non-Teams connector workflows.

MC791450 – In Microsoft Teams, when a Workflow card is received in chats or channels, users can now easily identify the workflow template that was used.

This message is associated with Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID 393923

When this will happen:

General Availability (Worldwide): Microsoft will begin rolling out early June 2024 and expects to complete by mid-July 2024.

General Availability (GCC): Microsoft will begin rolling out late September 2024 and expects to complete by late November 2024.

How this will affect your organization:

Templates used for posting Teams cards via a workflow will now feature a footer link. This allows users to directly access and utilize the corresponding workflow template, streamlining the creation of their own Teams Workflows and enhancing efficiency in performing routine tasks. 

This capability is designed for Teams Workflows templates that post cards via the Workflows bot in chat and channels using the Post card in a chat or a channel Teams connector action.

Templates that will not include the footer are the following: 

  • Custom flows that did not originate from a Workflows template.
  • Templates that do not use the Teams connector.
  • Workflows Message Extension default actions.
  • Power Automate templates that post cards outside of Teams.
  • Workflows using “Post your own adaptive card as the Flow bot to a user” or “Post your own adaptive card as the Flow bot to a channel” actions. 
  • Cards that include an existing Power Automate footer.

What you need to do to prepare:

Consider bringing awareness to your users about this change if your tenant uses Workflows to automate routine tasks.

If Admins have disabled the Workflows Teams app, this capability will also be disabled.
