A whole new way to deliver UI

Adaptive Cards are platform-agnostic snippets of UI, authored in JSON, that apps and services can openly exchange. When delivered to a specific app, the JSON is transformed into native UI that automatically adapts to its surroundings. It helps design and integrate light-weight UI for all major platforms and frameworks.

Meet your users where they are

Modern digital life is hectic. Users are constantly switching between devices, apps, and services to get their job done. Adaptive Cards help you increase engagement and efficiency by injecting your actionable content directly into the apps they use every day.
Integrate into existing apps

Bot Framework

A conversational bot powered by Adaptive Cards can greatly simplify business workflows on your web site or through other channels.

Microsoft Teams

As the digital hub for many modern workers, Teams offers multiple extensibilty points for apps to integrate with.

Outlook Actionable Messages

Email has long been life-blood of an information worker, and now you can deliver actionable content directly to their inbox.

Windows Timeline

Help users resume their activities on any device.

"User engagement on surveys is always a challenge, but after utilizing Outlook Actionable Messages our return rate surged from 10-12% to a 3 month average of 35%!"

Design cards anywhere

You don't have to send your users to this website to design cards. Just like Adaptive Cards blend into their surroundings, so does the Adaptive Card Designer. The SDK includes a full configuration API allowing you to deeply integrate card workflows into your existing toolchain.
Install the Designer SDK

"AtBot helps anyone write a bot without having to write code. By embedding the Adaptive Card designer directly into our web-based portal our customers can create rich, data-bound cards right from the browser."

Create, share, and discover reusable templates

What if you could instantly display any type of data? It could be your own app's data, your organization's data, or data from the web. With Adaptive Card Templating you can separate the data from card layout, and when coupled with a new template service a whole new ecosystem of card exchange becomes possible.
Create reusable card templates

Rich designer integration

Sample data allows you to preview your template without leaving the designer.

Simplify development workflows

Create your template in the designer, use it without your services, then paste it right back into the designer to make changes.

Discover and share templates using a REST service

The template service finds a template for your data, and will even populate it for you.

We want to hear from you

We don't have a release date for this preview yet, but we're waiting to learn from you.

"Teamwork offers a suite of productivity tools that integrate into many platforms. By creating reusable Adaptive Card templates we are able to deliver the same UI natively into our own apps, as well as tools our customers already use like Microsoft Teams and Visual Studio Code."
