Send ephemeral message via Teams bot

Mateusz Szostok 0 Reputation points

Hi all,

How can we achieve the same functionality as the Slack feature that allows us to post an ephemeral message visible only to the assigned user in a specific channel?

We would like to send an interactive message that, when updated, makes sense only to a given user. We can support this through direct messages between a given user and our bot. However, having channel context makes more sense for us, as the command builder will be sent only to a given user. Once the command is finally built using dedicated dropdown options, we want the user to execute it and the output to be posted in a given channel. Using DM introduces too much context switching.

Best regards,
