Overview

Want to connect Motivosity with your Microsoft team's application to make it easily accessible to your employees? Let's get crackin' a lackin' homie!! This is what will happen when the integration is completed! 


Setup

There are two different configurations options to be made in order to successfully sync the softwares together, either the configuration or webhook. One option is a connection that is made through Motivosity with a webhook and the other option will be done in Microsoft teams.


DISCLAIMER: You will need your MS Teams administrator to help configure things on the Microsoft side.  This is probably someone on your IT team, but they will be needed to complete this setup. 


Webhook


Webhook already established? Perfect! Hop into Motivosity and access integrations by going to 'Setup' > 'Integrations' and select the 'Microsoft Teams' application. Paste the webhook and click 'Connect to Teams'.



If you'd like to create a webhook, follow these steps: 


First, on the Teams app, click 'Apps' - 'Connectors' - then use the 'Incoming Webhook' app. 




Second, select 'Add to a Team' and select the Channel you want to use the incoming webhook for. Then select 'Set up a connector'. 




Third, you must specify a name for this connector and you will have the option to upload an image avatar for your webhook and then click 'Create'. 



A webhook URL will then populate for you to copy. 



You can then use that webhook to paste into the Motivosity platform, following the steps at the beginning of the article. 


Configuration


You can also configure the sync inside of teams. 


First, in Microsoft, head to your app store to find and install the Motivosity app. Then select  'Add to a Team'


Then select the channel you want it to sync to: 


Once you've selected 'Set up', another pop-up will emerge to configure the Motivosity app (see below). DISCLAIMER: You may be required to sign in as an admin in order to see this screen. Then once signed in click 'OK' then 'Save'. 



Tada! You are done. 


What it Shows

Now, you should be able to see the feed populating on this channel with all posts created by a user i.e Appreciations, Highlights, Announcements, Awards, etc.


A bot will tell you in the channel that the connector has been set up. Posts on the channel with look like this: 



You can post an appreciation or highlight right inside of the MS Teams channel. Simply put '@Motivosity' and select enter. Then select whether you'd like to 'Say Thanks' or post a 'Highlight'.


If you'd like to comment, like, etc. use the 'View in Motivosity' icon in the channel located at the bottom of every post. 



Happy Posting!
