How to set up a Microsoft Teams integration

If you're part of a team or supervising it, it can be tricky to keep track of the chart creations of your team members. That's why we offer a Microsoft Teams integration for all our users, including users on a free plan.

A Microsoft Teams integration will notify you in a Microsoft Teams channel of your choice whenever a chart created by your team is published or updated:

To set up a Microsoft Teams integration, go to your account settings in Datawrapper and select your team. This will bring you to your team settings. Now click on Integrations, then click on Enable Microsoft Teams integration: 

You will be prompted to add a Webhook URL. We explain how you will get such a URL in this article. It's a process that involves quite some steps, but it's simple and you won't need to code.

To get a Webhook URL for your Microsoft Teams channel, you'll need a Microsoft Teams connector. This connector will send the notifications. 
To create a connector, go to the channel where you want to get notified about updated and published visualizations from your team.

And that's it! You should now see a configured Incoming Webhook:And, more importantly, you'll see the configured connector at work as soon as you or somebody from your team publishes or republishes a chart, map or table:
Open Chart URL will open the full preview of the visualization that got published.
