Copy email attachment to Sharepoint Document Library - Conditions are not working

Hi Everyone,

 

I have a flow running which is designed to look at incoming mail from a domain address, with specific words in the subject of the email,  extract the attachement (but only PDF's), and copy the attachment to my Sharepoint Document Library.

 

None of my conditions (from domain, Subject Filter, OR PDF only) seem to be working and the SharePoint library is therefore populated with every attachement from every email I receive which annoyingly includes various png and jpeg files where logos are included in the body of the email.

 

Can anyone help please? I have detailed my setup below:

 

Step 1 - When New Email Arrives (Outlook Connector)

I have pointed to my Inbox

Importance is set to Any

Has Attachment set to Yes

Include Attachments set to Yes

Subject Filter set  to Your Order Acknowledgement

To, CC, To or CC, and From are all not configured.

 

I have then added a condition "From" contains "requireddomain.co.uk"

 

If Yes I have added an "Apply to each" Attachements with my 2nd condition that "Name" contains "pdf". I have left the If No blank.

 

If Yes I have selected Create File. I have populated

  • Site Address
  • Folder Path
  • Filename
  • File Content.

 

I cannot figure out what i am doing wrong, any help provided would be apprecaited. I have screenshots if that would help.

 

Regards,

 

Wayne.

Schoolboy error it turns out. I had another rule hidden in team flows which was non specific about the file types of domain address. Once i turned this off it all worked.

Hi @Anonymous,

 

It seems that you want to only save pdf files in the SharePoint library. In the Condition, please try to use Name contains .pdf to see if it will work.

 

I have made a simple test on my side and it works fine.

Hi Mabel Mao and thanks for your reply.

 

I already have the condition set up in this way but it doesn't work. Please see a screenshot of my flow, can you see any obvious errors?

Thanks Again.

Hi @Anonymous,

 

Can the flow be triggered?

 

What’s the error message it returned?

 

Could you try to add an Office 365 Outlook action Get attachment before the action Create file?

 

I have made a simple test likes below, and it works fine saving only PDFs to the SharePoint library.

Besides, it seems that you want to trigger a flow based on the sender’s email address, this doc on triggering a flow based on email properties could be your reference:

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/flow/email-triggers

 

Please try again with it on your side and feel free reply if you need more help.

Hi.

 

I have tried adding in the extra step as suggested. There are no error messages as it runs successfully every time, the problem is it fires on all incoming emails regardless of where they are coming from and brings in every attachment including .png .jpg and .img files where logos/pictures are included in the email.

 

The Requirements should be:

 

1. Email recieved from specific domain (Eg: Microsoft.co.uk)

2. Email Subject Contains the word Acknowledgement)

3. Bring in attachements that contain .pdf in their name.

 

I have just tested by sending myself an email with an excel attachment. Despite filling none of the criteria as described above the excel document has appeared in teh document library along with 6 .png files.

 

Regards,

 

Wayne.
