How I automated our (internal) community

In this blog post, you’ll learn how to build a self-contained and automated (internal) PowerPlatform community in just a few steps.

New members will receive a welcome email and an adaptive card with a question about preferences (tags) around PowerPlatform. In addition, all group members receive a quarterly request for their preferences, so that they are always up to date and any new tags are taken into account.

Getting Started
Create a Teams and associated tags in Microsoft Teams. I have used these tags initially:
– PowerApps
– PowerAutomate
– PowerPages
– PowerBi
– PowerVirtualAgents

Next Steps: Create the Flows in PowerAutomate
IMPORTANT: Take the 2. flow before the 1. flow

  1. flow: Send new user of a message

    This flow has as trigger ‘when a new member is added’. Then copy this code from git into your flow.

    Then you only have to adjust the following:
    – Run a Child Flow – 2nd Flow – Ask for preferences
    -> Select the child flow here.

  2. flow: Ask for user preferences

    This flow has as trigger ‘manually trigger a flow’ with a text input (UPN). Then copy this code from Git into your flow.

    You only have to adjust the following:
    – TeamsID

  3. flow: Send mail to all groupmembers

    This flow has ‘Recurrence’ as trigger. Then copy this code from Git into your flow.

    Then you only have to adjust the following:
    – GroupID
    – Run a Child Flow – ask for preferences with tags
    – Run a Child Flow – ask for user preferences
