Azure DevOps work item update notification

Hi Everyone,


I've created a flow which looks like this:

  1. User sends mail to mailbox XXX.
  2. Flow grabs it and creates work item in Azure DevOps
  3. User gets confirmation + info to whom it was assigned.

Now I would like to create new flow which will inform user that his request was updated (get response/status has changed etc). Problem I'm struggling with is that my first flow, when creating work item as requester set "mailbox XXX" so I don't know to whom send other notifications.


Was thinking about creating something like "custom field" which will hold orginal requester mail address (this field would be filled in first flow) and let me use it in second one? What do you think, is this doable? Any other ideas? Thanks in advance! 🙂
