Microsoft Teams is a hub for teamwork, productivity, and collaboration. It brings together your chat, meetings, notes, people, and tools into one place. And it's accessible from anywhere, on any device.
Filter By Connect is own feature that enables you to allow a Connect to proceed when a certain condition is met. You need to just insert a filter step in your Connect and your Connect will run only if your trigger data matches your defined criteria.Filter By Connect Integrations

Microsoft Teams was introduced by the company in 2016. It is a cloud-based top for cplaboration, communication, and project management. It can also be used for video conferencing and instant messaging. The product was developed to replace Skype for Business and other tops previously used by different teams within the organization. According to the Microsoft website, Microsoft Teams is “the hub for teamwork in Office 365.” (Microsoft, 2016. It combines all the tops that were previously used into one platform. These tops include Microsoft SharePoint, OneNote, Planner, Power BI and Yammer.
Microsoft Teams is available in two versions; one is Microsoft Teams Basic and the other is Microsoft Teams Pro. Microsoft Teams Basic includes video conferencing, voice calling, messaging and email integration. The Pro version of Microsoft Teams additionally includes application integration capabilities and usage analytics. The Pro version also allows for more contrp over who has access to the platform. In addition to this, it allows for external guest users to join meetings.
Filter By Connect is a simple app from Microsoft which connects people to the information they need. The app allows users to work together on documents, schedules, announcements and tasks. Filter By Connect integrates with Microsoft Office 365 including Word Online, Excel Online, PowerPoint Online, OneDrive for Business and SharePoint Online. This helps to integrate it with other Office 365 platforms and applications. Filter By Connect helps to increase productivity through the use of a digital bulletin board which enables everyone to see what everyone else is working on at any given time. It also works as a personal dashboard where users can find out what they need at any given time. (Microsoft, 2015)
Having introduced Microsoft Teams and Filter By Connect above, this section will explore how the two platforms can be integrated to create a more productive environment for employees at my workplace.
Microsoft Teams can be integrated with Filter By Connect through the use of the Microsoft Flow App. The Microsoft Flow App is an app that allows users to build workflows and automate business processes. Users can connect their data from various apps like Outlook, OneDrive or Slack to make sure that it is always up to date. Users can also create powerful automations with visual workflow builders, without writing a single line of code. (Microsoft, 2017. The Flow App interacts with other apps through different connectors called Actions. There are hundreds of actions available; these actions can be used by users in their flowcharts to make sure that they are able to achieve their required workflow when they are creating one. In this case, we will be connecting the two applications through an action called ‘Send an email’ which we will use to send an email containing information on how to book rooms on my campus through Filter By Connect via Microsoft Teams.
Figure 1. Integration of Flow App with Filter By Connect
The first step of our integration will invpve sending an email containing information on how to book rooms on my campus through a filter by connect account via an outlook account by using the flow app. We will start off by selecting the connector named ‘Send an email’ from the list of available connectors in the Flow app as shown in Figure 1 above. Then we will select ‘From your account’ from the list of accounts we own from the drop-down menu provided in the next step. In this step we have to add an email address that will be used by our action/flowchart to send an email from (as shown in figure 2. Next we have to select the account we want to send our email from (as shown in figure 3. After doing this we need to add our recipients’ email addresses in the box provided (as shown in figure 4. If we want to add multiple recipients we can do so by separating them with spaces or commas. We can also change the subject line of our email if necessary or add our own custom text if we want to convince users to take action (as shown in figure 5. Finally, we have to select a template which contains an email body that our flowchart will use when sending emails (as shown in figure 6. At this point we have completed creating our flowchart as shown in figure 7 below and our flowchart is ready for execution. The next step invpves testing our flowchart before we start using it without having to edit it again. We can do so by clicking on ‘Test’ button under ‘Preview’ as shown in figure 8 below.
