Installation & Setup

When installing the DataCamp MS Teams bot, you'll first choose the team you want to install it in, and also a channel that will be used by the bot to post its general notifications such as content updates.

 

Installing the bot in Teams

 

To fully unlock all of the bot's features, you'll want to link your DataCamp group. This must be done by a DataCamp group admin.

The person that installed the bot in Teams will have received a welcome message by the bot with a "Link your DataCamp group" button. If this person is a DataCamp group admin, they should click on this button and start linking their group.

 

Personal welcome message

 

In case the person that installed the bot was not a DataCamp group admin, no worries: the DataCamp group admin can still request this button for themselves by using the "Link group" command in the Teams channel where the bot is located.

Note: If you don't receive a message after using the "Link group" command, it's likely because you blocked the bot somehow. This usually happens if you installed the bot on a personal scope and then uninstalled it. To fix this: unblock the bot either by right-clicking the bot from your list of conversations and then clicking "Unblock", or just reinstall the bot on a personal scope ("Add for me" option in the MS Teams app store). Please use the "Link group" command again after unblocking the bot.

Clicking this button will open an external link to DataCamp where they'll have to authenticate, after which they'll be able to select a group to link.

After successfully linking the group, you (and the channel) will receive a success message on Teams notifying you that the group linking was completed successfully. You're good to go!
