Microsoft Teams Integration Overview

The "Learning in the Flow of Work" integration brings the Cornerstone Learning catalog directly to learners in their key productivity application. With this enhancement, Microsoft Teams users can add a chatbot to Teams that lets them search for and share training, all linked to the Cornerstone portal. Learners can also receive notifications about training with upcoming due dates.

This integration enables users to interact with learning content from within Teams and includes the ability to:

  • Receive a welcome message with instructions on how to use the Learn Bot
  • Search for, find, and access relevant content directly within the Learn Bot
  • Search for relevant content directly from any message thread with a new Teams message extension
  • Stay up-to-date on outstanding training via proactive nudges
  • Launch learning content directly from the bot

For portals with single sign-on enabled, any links to training take the user directly to the learning details page without the user needing to log in to the portal if they are already logged in.

Implementation

This integration is not yet available but will be available for portals with Learning and that also have a Microsoft Office 365 license with Teams. Administrators with permission to manage Edge Marketplace can enable the integration in Edge Marketplace. The administrator will need the organization’s Office 365 environment Tenant ID as well as access to their Cornerstone portal’s Single Sign-On configuration if they are utilizing Single Sign-On. Once the integration is enabled, individual users can complete installation through Microsoft Teams.

Additional instructions for enabling and configuring the integration are available in Edge. Availability date is yet to be determined.

Note: You may also be considering creating a subset of users to test the integration. This can be done through Microsoft Teams Custom App Management, which lets you enable the integration for test users. More information about this can be found in the starter guide.
