Data Flow

  1. An employee accesses the Enterprise Productivity Bot.
  2. Azure Active Directory validates the employee's identity.
  3. The Bot is able to query the employee's Microsoft 365 calendar via the Microsoft Graph.
  4. Using data gathered from the calendar, the Bot accessrd case information in Dynamics CRM.
  5. Information is returned to the employee, who can filter down the data without leaving the Bot.
  6. Application Insights gathers runtime telemetry, to help the development with Bot performance and usage.
