Searching Guru in Microsoft Teams

Roles: Read-Only, Author, Collection Owner, Admin


Office 365 is a natural place to access & share a team's collective knowledge right in your workflow ⚡️

Bring Guru's knowledge into Microsoft Teams Chats with your team. Learn how to search your Guru knowledge while in Microsoft Teams to post new Cards, answer questions, and drive adoption for your team.


Search & Share Guru Cards

Users can search & share Guru Cards in two locations:

  • Team/Channel: Within any (non-private) channel for a Team (with the Guru app installed)

  • Personal: Within any 1-1 or Group direct message Chats

Note: In both scenarios, users within any given Chat or Channel must authenticate to view posted Cards within Teams, unless the Card has the "Privacy & Sharing" setting as Public (no sign-in required). For non-public cards, Guru will still restrict visibility to the Card content based on any user group access restrictions enabled in the "Privacy & Sharing" for the Card.

Method #1: Search & Share via the Message Extension

  1. Select the Guru app icon in our MS Teams and click "Search Guru"

  2. You'll be presented with a list any recently viewed Cards and a search prompt. If the Card that you're interesting in sharing is not in your "Recently Viewed" list, typed any keywords in the search prompt and select "Search" to surface Guru Cards most relevant to your query.

  3. Once you've found the share you're looking to post, click the "Post to this Chat / Channel" button, and then hit submit on your message to post into the channel/chat.

Method #2: Answer with a Card via the Message action

1. In response to any message within Microsoft Teams, you can reply with a Guru Card, by selecting " •••" at the top right corner of the message and clicking "More Actions > Answer with Card":
