Forms Flow to Create a Message in a channel specified by the form

Hello,

I am newish to creating flows and I am very lost on this one. I want to use an MS Form to post a message to a specific channel in a team. The channel that the flow will post to is dependent on one of the questions in the Form. All of our projects have their own unique channel and the channels are named after their project number, which follows some 7 digit format (#######)

The first line on the form is:

Project #:

 

I want the user to be able to fill out the form and it posts a message to the correct channel specified by the Project # line from the form. 

So if they fill out the form for Project#: 2372232 it posts a message to channel 2372232.

Hi @Anonymous 

 

This works for me.  I pass the channel name as a test field from my form and then list my channels and perform a filter on the results where the channel name is equal to the form answer.  I then put the channel ID into the Channel parameter of the post a message action.
