Flow to Save Email attachment only if PDF and then move the email to Deleted Items.

Good morning.

 

I have a flow that is working fine apart from the final part when there is multiple attachments on the email. when the email I presume earlier in the flow has been moved as part of the condition. 

 

The flow works like this.  An email arrives in a mailbox, with an attachment we take out the variable and rename the attachment with a time and date stamp. We only want pdf's so if this condition is true it will move to a sharepoint folder.  This works fine for all attachments but the issue I am having is that the flow says it failing (when technically it isn't as we have all attachments) is that the final part of the flow, is move the email to the deleted items folder.

 

I am presuming that with the first attachment it has completed the flow and moved the email, but when it gets to next attachment it does everything okay until the email move has it already been moved to the deleted items folder. 

 

Can anyone advise what I need to change regarding the move email v2 section, so it completes the attachments section and then deletes the email.

 

Please see images below.  I look forward to hearing from you.

Hi @MattyGSilent 

I assume that every single action when saving the attachments into a new file are inside an "apply-to-each" action. Is that correct? If that's the case, you should move the "move email" action outside the "apply-to-each", as you only have to do this once.

Hope that helps!

Do you mean like this?  As I get an error when this happens.

Hi @MattyGSilent 

Exactly, that's the way -> You only need to move the email to the deleted folder once (when you already created all the attachments).

The error you're showing states that the email you're trying to move was not found. Please, start a new workflow from scratch and let us know.

Hope it helps!

It did the part at the end, to delete the email, but it said the condition was false and did not move the attachments with the following error, even though they were PDF's. 

 

Any ideas why not

Please find the Condition, so I am surprised it thinks it is false.

Hi @MattyGSilent 

In the condition action, left values are empty (I guess you want to select filename or file content). So the condition is always false.

Hope this helps.

Sorry I don't understand what you mean?

 

What did you mean by left values?  I have the create file folder name and content with information in.  Surely it should have said true rather then false?
