Welcome message appears only after user input

I created Web App Bot from QnA Maker. The welcome message appears okay in the test, but it appears only after user input on Teams. How can I make it appear at the beginning?

    To send welcome message at the beginning you have to send proactive message.

    A proactive message is any message sent by a bot that isn't in response to a request from a user.
    This can include messages, such as:
    Welcome messages
    Scheduled messages

    You can refer below doc for sending proactive messages.
