Copy only Yammer "Praise" post to SharePoint List

While creating a Flow to copy only "Praise" post from my yammer feed, Should "Message Type" = "Praise" condition work ?

Add an if condition after the Yammer flow. Check the Object name 'Message Text' contains "Praise".

Hi Mmomin,


I created a flow, which trigger is “When there is a new message in my Following feed”, a condition, if yes, send an email to me.


I tested both with the “Message type” is equal to “Praise” and “Message Text” contains “Praise”, both conditions will never recognize the praise feed and I never receive any emails. Here is the message from flow:


So I think this cannot be achieved so far.

Thank You Mona Li for testing it further. 

Here I have attached Parise Post. Do you think if we do Message Text contains "Praised". That would work2016-11-08_9-04-29.jpg

Hi Mmomin,


No, I have tested already, Message Text doesn't work either.

@Mmomin, I don't think you are able to filter out 'Praise' message in Flow with these built in settings, becase 'Praise' is one of the message type, however, there is no way to check yammer message type in Flow. You can submit one idea for it in the Flow Ideas forum


I don't try it myself, however, I think you can work with API to filter out these 'Praise' message in Flow. Please check the following two links:

1). How to programmatically get 'Praise' messages:

Hi...I have the reverse question. I am trying to link sharepoint praise tool with Yammer i.e if someone uses the sharepoint praise platform...the flow should trigger and yammer post(in the form of praise) should be posted on Yammer page. I am able to post it as announcement but unable to link it to praise. Any ideas? can the flow be automated to tag the appreciated person while posting on Yammer.
