  • Via sent edition view

🛠️How it works: 

1. After sending an edition, you’ll see the option to “Share to Microsoft Teams”.

Does the message get posted as HQ or myself?

In Teams, the message is posted as the user.

Can we format messages (bold, italics, etc.)?

Teams messages support bold and italic formatting via keyboard shortcuts within the Teams modal.

Can I share to Teams without sending the communication via email first?

You’ll only be able to share to Teams for sent editions because a link to the edition isn’t generated until it is sent.

Can I add images to my message?

Not at this time but we’ll consider it in the future.

Can I schedule a Teams message?

Not at this time but we’ll consider it in the future.

Can I set default channels for sharing?

Not at this time but we’ll consider it in the future.

Can I send test messages?

Not at this time but we’ll consider it in the future.

Do one-offs support sending messages to Teams?

Not at this time but we’ll consider it in the future.

Will I be able to see if an edition has been posted to Teams?

No, you won’t be able to see if an edition has been posted to Teams.

Can I see analytics (reactions, threads, etc.) from Teams?

Currently, you cannot. Users can leverage existing link analytics to see views from the web.

Can you tag @here in a message?

No, tagging @here or @ a specific user will not come through as having tagged the handle.

Can I share cards to Teams?

No, these integrations only support sharing full editions.

Who can read links shared to Teams?

This depends on the chosen link access settings for the relevant series: recipients only, recipients + current audience, or anyone with the link.

Can I include emoji in my post?

Yes! You can manually add emoji.
