Additional Resources

See https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoftteams/platform/webhooks-and-connectors/how-to/add-incoming-webhook for additional information about what Incoming Webhooks are and how they are used.


You may need to contact your Teams Administrator before adding an Incoming Webhooks Connector. If you don’t see the ability to add Connectors, or don’t find Incoming Webhook in the list, contact your administrator and ask them to enable this connector. They will navigate to

https://admin.teams.microsoft.com/policies/manage-apps to configure org-wide settings, and then verify the settings here: https://admin.teams.microsoft.com/policies/manage-apps/203a1e2c-26cc-47ca-83ae-be98f960b6b2/

The settings can take several minutes, or even hours to show up in your Teams Application. You may find that you can add it using the Teams Web Client more quickly.


If you also want to approve tasks through Webhooks integrations, then you must also follow the guide here:
