#PowerAutomate – Flow to use Open Trivia Database questions in a Microsoft Teams bot 🤖 5/N

Hi !

Now that we have the core steps to request a Trivia question from the API, send the question to a user and process the user’s answers, let’s work on the trigger.

My final idea is to use a trigger from Teams, then validate that the message body contains the words ‘start trivia’ and, if the condition is not matched, stop the flow.

There are plenty of triggers for Microsot Teams, I may try other scenarios later. Now, the [When a new channel message is added] is the one for me.

I created a new channel named [Trivia] in my lab environment, so using I’ll work on this one.

On the condition step, I needed to convert to string the message body and the string “start trivia”. Otherwise the stop condition won’t work.

And, when the condition is not meet, I use a [Terminate] step to stop the flow.

We are almost there ! However, we can improve still this flow a lot 😀
