Communication website

Communication website - automatic e-mail when someone has published a new entry?

Hi @LucaOVK,


One approach could be to use a when an item or file is modified trigger on the site pages library. You do need to add trigger conditions to that action. Otherwise it will trigger on pretty much any change, you don't want the flow spamming you with emails 😉


Below is an example of such a setup.

This example will only trigger when a News Post is posted (Promoted State 2) and when the FirstPublishedDate and the Last Modified date are within the same minute. In other words, it is only triggered when you post the news the first time (or when you republish very quickly 😂). Republishing is out of scope of this example.


1. Add the When an item or a file is modified trigger action. Make sure you use the Site Page library


2. Add the following expression in settings.

@and(equals(triggerOutputs()?['body/PromotedState'], 2),equals(formatDateTime(triggerOutputs()?['body/FirstPublishedDate'], 'yyyy-MM-ddTHH:mm'), formatDateTime(triggerOutputs()?['body/Modified'], 'yyyy-MM-ddTHH:mm')))
