Approvals flow ignore .eml files

Hi All,

 

I'm trying to either modify an existing flow or create a new flow that starts an approvals process for attached invoices when an e-mail is forwarded to the team.

 

I tried enabling the standard approvals flow that runs when a file is created.  This worked except that it also included the .eml file which is in the e-mail subfolder.  I'm trying to figure out how to ignore the emails file or that subfolder entirely and only apply to the actual attachments in the general files folder.

 

Any help here would be greatly appreciated.  Smiley Happy

Re: Approvals flow ignore .eml files

Hi @nmasseywfd ,

Could you please share a screenshot of your flow's configuration?

Your purpose is to ignore the .eml file from the e-mail Attachments.

I suggest you add a condition in you flow: ‘Attachment Name ’ does not end with .eml.

 I have made a test on my side, please take a try with the following workaround:

Re: Approvals flow ignore .eml files

Hi @v-zhos-msft and thanks for the help.

 

The issue is that I'm using the template (shown below) for when someone forwards an email to our team so taht the attachments can be approved internally.  The issue is that it also includes the .eml file as a file created.  I usually target the general folder, but it still picks up the email subfolder, which I'm trying to ignore.

 

Thanks!
