The ipushpull Microsoft Teams bot lets you pull snapshots of your data into Teams chats and channels (to view live and streaming data in Teams use the ipushpull tab app).
This article explains how to use the ipushpull chat bot in your 'personal app' - your private ipushpull workspace inside Teams. You can also also add the bot to other Teams chats and channels - see this page for more details.

Pulling your default page into the chat
If you have configured a default page, you can pull it into the chat by simply entering the pull command:
Pulling any page into the chat
To pull any other page into the chat, enter its folder and page name in this format:
Pro tip: if your page name is unique, you don’t have to mention the folder name in your request
Searching for pages
If you can’t remember the name of your page, use the search command with an optional search term. This will return a dropdown list of all the pages you have access to that match the term. Select the page you want and click the Pull button to view in the chat.
If you don’t enter a search term then search will return a list of all the pages you have access to.
You must authenticate the bot with ipushpull to access your data in Teams. Enter the login command to do this, then follow the instructions.
If you want to de-authenticate the bot, enter the logout command.

FAQs, Hints and Tips
Why has my data been truncated?
Teams imposes a message limit that means the bot sometimes can’t return all your data into the chat. If this happens the bot will display a message with a link you can click to view the complete results in the ipushpull web app.
