  3. Now, you should be fully connected. You can verify this by running @FireHydrant new, and you should be shown a prompt to specify an incident title.

Note:

By default, FireHydrant will post only to channels in the Team/Workspace you installed the bot to. Currently, the FireHydrant MS Teams Bot can only post to a single Team/Workspace at a time. To change which Team it posts to, use the @FireHydrant set workspace command. See the full list of Microsoft Teams Commands.
