Jennifer Showe presented on User Activities & Windows Timeline. The demo used Microsoft Graph to publish a User Activity which showed in Windows Timeline rendered with an Adaptive card. The developer can associate a deep link to the User Activity to enable resume behavior from inside their own app or Windows Timeline. When a user clicks on the card in Windows Timeline, the user is returned to the web app to pick up the activity where they left off.
Jason Johnston presented the ApprovalBot demo. The demo is a Bot Framework-based bot that uses the Microsoft Graph and Adaptive cards to implement a simple approval workflow. The user interacts with the bot to select a file from their OneDrive for Business and send a request for “approval” to their colleagues. The approval request is sent as an actionable message, allowing the recipients to approve or reject the file with comments. The user can also query the bot to get the current approval status.
