More detailed info of the first steps can be found here:

Settings on the Apps' Configuration tab

  1. Authorize using OAuth2 Authorization

    Note! MS Teams can be authorized by an user with Global Administrator permissions in Azure AD

    Need admin approval?

    If you are prompted about needing admin approval these articles might help you:

  2. Call to Action
    Type down your call to action, eg. Read more from Teams channel X-Y-Z

  3. Number of last posts to show
    Choose how many of the latest posts to show.

    Best practice is to use the channel's average post number within one (1) week for this setting. It allows all necessary posts to rotate, but keeps the contents fresh.

  4. Microsoft Teams channel
    Choose the team and the channel you want to follow.

  5. Duration
    How many seconds should the app be visible.

    Best practice is between 12-20 seconds depending how much information the average post contains.

  6. Rename the App

    Rename the app by clicking the name on top of the page.

    The best practice is to name the App to match the selected data source, in this case the name of the MS Teams channel you are pulling messages from.

Complete the work by adding the app to a flow or directly to a display.
