Is the Microsoft Teams integration free?

Yes, Microsoft Teams is one of the channels built-in into adenin, a platform that integrates all kinds of work apps into a personal dashboard as well as your other work applications, such as intranets or chatbots. Bear in mind that, even though channels such as Microsoft Teams are free, the use of adenin (including using data from Outlook) incurs usage charges according to your plan. See the pricing page for details →

Who is the Microsoft Teams integration for?

adenin’s Microsoft Teams connector is a popular choice for Finance & Accounting, Human Resources and Internal Comms teams at small to large organizations. The data sources that are built into Outlook (see above) are incredibly simple to integrate into Microsoft Teams and don't require any technical know-how. The adenin platform completely handles authenticating with Outlook and then loads your data into an Adaptive Card layout that, in turn, will be embedded into Microsoft Teams.

Do I have to be a developer to use the Microsoft Teams integration with Outlook?

No, the integration is designed to help busy managers stay on top of their various workplace applications, where Outlook is just one of many examples (see others). As such, we designed many tools that reduce the amount of coding expected of users: Starting with the Outlook integration, which you can set up yourself in just a few, completely code-free, steps (see instructions).

Then with the built-in Card designer we automatically generate a layout from your Outlook data. You could tweak this further in the low-code designer, either yourself if you have some HTML-related skills, or with a little help from us – just reach out to one of the team.

Lastly, there will be the Microsoft Teams integration which is self-explanatory to install. Just check the installation instructions section for more details.

How does adenin ensure my Outlook data is safely delivered to Microsoft Teams?

We use the secure OAuth standard which means you authorize adenin accessing your Outlook data and in turn authorize us to share this data with Microsoft Teams. Both of these authorizations can be revoked by you at any point through the Linked accounts menu (requires user account). No data is ever stored on adenin servers, instead it is directly sent to the client (in this case Microsoft Teams) who will treat it in accordance with their privacy policy. Please also check out our Privacy Policy for more details.
