This is a setup guide for integrating Firstup with Microsoft Teams. Once fully configured both with Firstup and within Teams, content from your Firstup program will automatically appear in Teams.
To complete these instructions you must have access to Microsoft Teams, an active program with Firstup, and a contract with Firstup for this premium feature.
- Contact Firstup Support to initiate the integration setup. In the email to Firstup Support, include:
- Your channels in your Firstup program that you want to pull content from.
- Your Microsoft Teams Tenant ID. You can find the Microsoft Teams Tenant ID as follows:
- Sign into Microsoft Teams.
- Click the Teams tab.
- For any team listed, select the three dots to open the sub-menu. Note, you can choose any team in this step, your selection will not limit which teams you can add to later.
- Click Get Link to Team.
- Click Copy.
- Paste the link to the team into the email that you send to Firstup.
- Receive confirmation from Firstup Support that the integration has been initialized.
- Open Microsoft Teams and click the Apps tab.
- Under Apps, search for Firstup and click on the Firstup tile in the search results.
- Review the app information and click Add to a team.
- Select the Teams channel that you wish to add Firstup to by searching for the channel by name.
- Click Set Up a Bot.
- The integration between your Firstup program and Microsoft Teams is complete!
To verify the integration, look for the setup confirmation in the Teams channel that you added Firstup to. The setup confirmation looks like the following:
The integration will pull in content published after the integration is completed (refer to the setup confirmation message in the channel for exact date and time).
You can add Firstup to multiple channels in Teams by returning to the Apps tab and selecting Add to a Team. Each integration will pull in the same content.
If you have multiple different teams, you must complete the full process (steps 1-8 above) for each unique Microsoft Teams Tenant ID.
