Connect Dovetail and Microsoft Teams

To connect your Teams account, select ⚙️ Settings > Integrations in the sidebar. Locate Microsoft Teams in the integrations list and select Connect. Continue to login to your Microsoft Teams account and review requested permissions.

If you get an error saying 'No organization found for this Microsoft Teams account', this means you've tried to integrate with a personal Microsoft account which our app does not support.


Requested permissions

When you connect your Microsoft Teams account to Dovetail, you will grant Dovetail access to:

  • Read your organization's app catalog — Allows us to find the internal ID of our Microsoft Team's app.

  • Read and write our Microsoft Team's app for a user — Allows us to install our Microsoft Team's app for the user, as well as retrieving the installation ID used to retrieve the conversation ID.

  • Read information about the user — Allows us to view user's email and organization name.

  • Offline access Allows us to regenerate user's authorization via a refresh token.


Share content in Microsoft Teams

When you share a Dovetail link in Microsoft Teams, all the relevant information related to the link will be displayed directly in Microsoft Teams for you and your colleagues to see.

The supported links are notes, highlights, tags, insights, project readme, and people.

Highlight Embeds

When you share a highlight, you will also get a video embed of the highlight that your team can play right from Microsoft Teams.

If you are using the desktop or mobile app, to play the highlight you'll need to go through an authentication flow. Here are the steps:

  1. Copy the link provided and paste it into your browser

  2. Login to Dovetail

  3. Copy the one-time password (OTP)

  4. Enter the OTP in Microsoft Teams

on
or

FAQs


I'm trying to connect Teams to Dovetail but am receiving a 'Failed to save' error

First, you must check if the Dovetail app is installed in your Microsoft Teams workspace by navigating to this link and clicking “Get it now”.

If you receive the error "This app cannot be found" from this page, you will need to contact your workspace administrator and ask them to install the Dovetail app. This error means your account is being restricted internally.
