Say, user is in home tab, clicks a tile and is expecting to switch to another tab showing details of that tile. This post is about how to achieve this scenario using MS Teams personal app.


This sample teams app is built using VS Teams Toolkit v2. It showcases how to switch from one tab to other while passing data to the destination tab. Please see this GIF in action:
