Get Contacts FolderID from a Shared Mailbox

Hi folks,

 

I´m trying to build a flow to create contacts in a subfolder of contacts from a shared mailbox.

In Outlook-Connector, there is the action "get contacts" where you need a folderID. In the dropdown, I can only select my contacts-folder of my personal mailbox.

 

How is it possible to target a subfolder of a shared mailbox or even get the folderID of the folder to put that in? Anyone a solution or a syntax, that I have to put it in?

 

Thnaks a lot!

Re: Get Contacts FolderID from a Shared Mailbox

Hi @Gedl,

 

It seems that it is not possible currently to get contacts from a Shared mailbox. The action Get contacts can only get contacts from your personal mailbox to which the connection is created.

 

Please submit your request on Flow Ideas Forum so it might be considered in the future releases:
