For our first update of the year we have rolled out some improvements to the Digital Assistant web app and Microsoft 365 integration.
1. Web app improvement
We’ve redesigned the top header in Digital Assistant so it now offers a more compact layout, leaving more space for users’ My Board which can now display up to 3 columns across on big screens.
The chatbot dropdown has now moved into its own web chat button in the bottom right-hand corner of the screen.
2. Avatar from Microsoft 365
Along with the new header we have rolled out a new feature around profile photos. Users that are connected to their Microsoft 365 account via OpenID will now automatically see their regular avatar displayed in Digital Assistant.
An icon will indicate if the account is externally managed, thus options to reset the password or change the profile photo are not available.
3. Ask Digital Assistant in Teams conversations
Digital Assistant can now be added as a bot to conversations you have with other users or within team channels.
After you have added Digital Assistant you can ask it anything you would normally, but Digital Assistant will instead answer as part of the conversation.
This is useful for example to share a Card or workflow with a colleague or team.
