# Configure the channel on the Witivio 365 application
Your channel is created on Azure. Therefore, you have all the information to activate it in the interface. To this, copy the Microsoft App ID and Microsoft Password into the corresponding fields.
Your channel is configured and your chatbot will be active on Teams in a few minutes.
# Add an image to the bot
