  • Group voicemail app using SharePoint, Teams, Power Automate & Power Apps – meet the Therapy Playground Voicemail (Power) App that extends Teams (Voice) auto attendant (captures and transcribes messages) by displaying both the mp3 and transcription of message in app. The app tracks responses - who/time/action. This tracking closes the issue/response loop by centralizing and driving response actions. Actions include direct response to customer, forward to another team member. Power Automate flow executes message movement. Discussion at
