Add or run a workflow from a message
Some workflows let you automate tasks and take other actions right from an individual message. They can help you save time and make Teams more useful to you and the people you collaborate with.
New to workflows? Get started with this overview.
Add a workflow
Go to More options in the upper right corner of any message.
Select More actions > + Create new action.
Select the pre-built workflow you want.
4. Follow any prompts given. When done, you'll get a confirmation that says, "Workflow added successfully!"
Tip: Select + Create new to create a fully custom workflow. You’ll be taken directly to Power Automate, the app that powers the workflows experience in Teams.
Run a workflow from a message
1. Go to More options in the upper right corner of any message.
2. Select the workflow you want to run.
Tip: Your most recently used message actions—whether they’re workflows or other types of actions—will be immediately visible in the menu; the ones you use less often can be found under More actions >.
3. Follow any prompts you’re given.
You’ll find a link to Manage workflows in several places throughout the experience: on the screen where you add a workflow, on the confirmation dialog, and from Apps > Workflows. If you ever need to edit details of a workflow or delete one altogether, visit Manage workflows.
