// Subs for posting messages to Microsoft Teams channels.
// Posting messages to Teams channels can be used for various things:
// - Notifying developers and end users that reloads have finished and that apps now contain updated data
// - Provide a feedback mechanism to developers during long-running app reloads.
// I.e. providing continuous insight into the question "how far along is my ongoing reload?"
// - Notify developers or app owners that some metric or parameter has reached some value during
// the most recent reload. I.e. a form of alerting.
