It can be quite the has­sle keep­ing up with all the chats we’re part of nowa­days. It’s one thing to get a noti­fi­ca­tion when some­one men­tions you and you can also choose to get noti­fied when an entry is made in an impor­tant chan­nel, but how are you to know what is said in one of the many chan­nels you and your team use regard­ing some­thing you’re respon­si­ble for?

On the plat­form Slack, you’ve been able to sub­scribe to cer­tain key­words for a long time, but right now, in Novem­ber 2021, it’s still a fea­ture many have request­ed in Microsoft Teams (the tool most of my clients use at the moment) but which is still not available.

And you can. There’s actu­al­ly a pret­ty decent way of solv­ing the dilem­ma in Pow­er Automate.
