Supported events

At the moment, the Microsoft Teams integration can send notifications when:

  • a project was created/deleted
  • a language was added/completed/deleted/proofread
  • strings were imported
  • a contributor was added/removed/joined the project
  • a comment was added
  • AT characters were used
  • a translation order was completed
  • translations were flushed from a language
  • all terms and translations were flushed from the project
  • translations were updated via API
  • a term was manually added in the UI
  • terms were added via API
  • terms were synced via API
  • new terms were added (regardless of how)
  • the string limit was reached

You can tell the POEditor app to send notifications to Microsoft Teams only about events in the projects hosted on your POEditor account. This is due to privacy reasons.
