M365 Changelog: Workflows Message Extension will be updated to include new pinned default actions

MC682299 – The Workflows Message Extension in Microsoft Teams will include new default actions to assist user collaboration. These actions will help users quickly tackle common, multi-step activities within any conversation. The new default actions include capabilities for meetings, tasks, and status updates from others. Most workflows post an adaptive card to build transparency across the group.

This message is associated with Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID 167324

When this will happen:

We will begin rolling out in early November and complete roll out by mid-November.

How this will affect your organization:

The Workflows Message Extension will include new default actions that post cards to the active conversation.

Existing user-created actions will persist in the Workflows Message Extension and users will still be able to create new actions from within Workflows by browsing workflow templates or creating a custom workflow.

What you need to do to prepare:

Consider bringing awareness to your users about this change if your tenant uses the Workflows Message Extension.

If Admins have disabled the Updates Teams app, the updates default action will not be listed in the Workflows Message Extension.
