List Search App Template
Collaboration in Microsoft Teams often references information contained within items in a SharePoint list. Simply pasting a link to the item forces everyone to switch context away from the conversation, find the needed information, then return to Teams to continue the conversation. As the conversation continues, people might have to switch back to the reference item multiple times to verify new comments and refresh their memory of what was in the list item. All this context switching creates a barrier to smooth collaboration, and is an opportunity for things to fall through the cracks.
To help alleviate this pain, we're happy to bring you the List Search app template. Millions of users use SharePoint to power some of the core workflows in their organizations. Using the List Search app in Microsoft Teams, users can insert information from SharePoint list items directly within a chat conversation. The data is inserted as an easy-to-read card, helping your users stay engaged in the conversation.
Begin with the Solution overview to read about what the app does and how it works.
When you're ready to try out List Search, or to use it in your own organization, follow the steps in the Deployment guide.
