Search and share in group chats or channels

There are two ways to search Tettra and share pages inside group chats or channels.

Searching with @tettra

You can @mention the TettraBot by typing @tettra in any group chat or channel.

Mentioning @tettra will pull up the search box that lets you seamlessly find and share your Tettra pages.

Searching with the Message Extension App

Message Extensions are useful apps that display below any chat input in Microsoft Teams. They allow you to quickly access an app in any channel or group chat.

To search with the Message Extension, just click the App icon and type your search query. Tettra will return a list of search results that you can choose from:

Choosing a result will add a Card to the chat input box. You can add whatever additional context you want below the card.

When you're ready, click Send (or use the shortcut ctrl/cmd + enter).

Your card and any message will be sent into the group chat or channel.

If you don't see the app below your chat input, you'll need to pin it for easy access.

Click the ... menu underneath your chat input.

Right click the Tettra app and click Pin
