Power Virtual Agents Community Challenge for all Communities

Come join in our #BotSquad Power Virtual Agents Community Challenge 

Are you a Power Virtual Agents Content Creator, Devotee, Bot Maker?  

Power Virtual Agents lets you create powerful chatbots that can answer questions posed by your customers, other employees, or visitors to your website or service. 

These bots can be created easily without the need for data scientists or developers. Some of the ways that Power Virtual Agents bots have been used include: 

  • COVID-19 infection rate and tracking information 
  • Sales help and support issues 
  • Opening hours and store information 
  • Employee health and vacation benefits 
  • Common employee questions for businesses 

Power Virtual Agents is available as both a standalone web app, and as a discrete app within Microsoft Teams. Most of the functionality between the two is the same. However, there might be different reasons to choose one version or the other based on the ways you want to use Power Virtual Agents.

The first step in building your own gaming PC is to make sure you have everything. This may seem like a no-brainer, but it's very easy to forget something small that could end up costing hundreds of dollars or holding back the  completion of your build for days/weeks. So here are all of the parts and pieces that will be needed.
