M365 Changelog: Workflows in Teams app store for messaging

MC337954 – Workflows let you automate repetitive tasks or processes that connect one or more apps to Teams. In short, they can save you time and effort. Teams users will be able to browse, add, and manage this unified platform capability from the Teams store and from several other contexts within Teams. Many workflows run automatically without further user action once they’ve been set up; others can be run manually from the messaging area in Teams or from individual messages. Find more information here.

This message is associated with Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID 92454

When will this happen:

The capability will begin rolling out in mid-March and should be fully deployed by the end of March.

How this affects your tenant:

Workflows will be available to users from the Teams Store, and availability is managed through allowed access to Power Automate. Current settings for Power Automate will be honored. Admins can turn off the capability by using an app permission policy or by blocking Power Automate for their organization from the Manage apps page. For more information on managing workflows, please refer to Manage Microsoft Teams settings for your organization | Workflows in Teams.
