Microsoft Teams

Support your test management and keep all team members updated of test activity through an integration with Microsoft Teams.


TestMonitor provides an integration that allows notifications on test activities to send to a designated Teams channel. By integrating TestMonitor with Teams, you can keep channel members updated about test activities in your project as soon as they occur! 

Using this integration, you can avoid sending company-wide emails or requiring users to log in to TestMonitor every day to stay apprised of updates. Notifications about things such as a test run being scheduled or an issue being created, will show up in the Teams channel your team is already using. You can even configure Teams to send a weekly summary of test activities for the past week to keep everyone up to date.

Before you can use this integration, make sure that you meet these requirements:

  • You must either be a admin or have the project manager role in TestMonitor.
  • An active Teams account.

When all these requirements are met, you can proceed with connecting to Teams.
