Microsoft Teams has powerful capabilities out-of-the-box but as more organizations adopt Teams into their modern workplace, many are looking for ways to integrate more features to help streamline their business processes. You can extend Teams with Microsoft apps, third-party apps, or integrate your own custom apps using the Teams extensible framework. Instead of building a custom app from scratch, Microsoft has made it easier by providing pre-built app templates that you can download from GitHub for free and install into your tenant. In this session, we will cover an overview of the extensibility options for Teams as well as demonstrate some of the top Power Platform app templates being used today based on common use cases.
