Accessing AutoQL in Teams

Note: The following instructions assume that: 

    1. An Admin has already sideloaded the AutoQL app for your organization; 
    2. The Admin (or another user) has already added AutoQL to a channel that you (as an end user) have access to;
    3. A connection has been configured between the channel and an available data source.

If the above conditions are met, you have access to AutoQL and can use it to query your data directly from Teams! 

Here’s how to get started: 

    • Open Microsoft Teams 
    • Login 
    • Navigate to “Teams” in the left-side menu 
    • Click on the channel you wish to use to access AutoQL 
    • Click on the AutoQL icon in the message extension bar 
    • Authorize access to the AutoQL app by signing in to AutoQL 
    • Begin querying in the AutoQL “Task Module” (pop-up window)

Welcome Message

When AutoQL is first added to a shared channel and a data source connection has been configured/set-up, users in the channel will be notified that the app is available through a Welcome Message that gets delivered to the channel. 

Authorize Access to AutoQL 

To begin using the app, you must first authorize access to the AutoQL app by clicking “sign in” and completing the sign-in process with your relevant Microsoft credentials. 

Once you have authenticated access to the application, you can continue using AutoQL (you will be prompted to continue to the AutoQL task module where you can ask queries in natural language to access and analyze your data.) 

Invoking the AutoQL Task Module

AutoQL can be accessed in any shared channel where a data source connection has been configured. 

Clicking on the AutoQL icon in the compose message area of a channel will invoke an interactive Task Module where users can leverage the features and functionality of the app.
