Creating a Flow for automated Request Forms

Hello all,

 

I am new to using Flow and am in need of some ideas on creating one. I am looking to see if there is a way to be able to automate a workflow where a client would click on a URL and initiate a Request Form from it. Once it is submitted, emails are then generated as well as Unique Request ID for each Request Form. It would require some kind of Data Repository which would list any outstanding requests and show representation of data captured in the request form. Once that request is closed, a satisfaction survey email will be created and distributed and will probably be through a URL as well within the email.

 

Some services likely to be used would probably be, Outlook, Exchange and Power Bi. Maybe some others too that could be useful that I'm not aware of currently? 

 

I apologize if this seems vague or lacking enough information. I would be happy to have any information I can use to create a flow that might work for what I am looking for. Feel free to ask for more clarification. Thank you!

You can create a SharePoint List to store the data, you can then front end that either with MS Forms, PowerApps, Standard OOTB Form or something from a 3rd party / custom to meet your needs.

 

If you use MS Forms there is a trigger for that, as well as item created in SharePoint.

Hi @Anonymous ,

 

You could start the flow with trigger "When a new response is submitted" of Form connector, and then you could send the email and choose a Data Repository such as sharepoint to save the data.

Thank you for your suggestions. By Form Connector, do you mean Microsoft Forms?
