I'm having trouble with creating a Flow, and unfortunately I'm not very well versed with this feature. I think it'd probably be best for me to simply describe what I'm trying to accomplish, as well as my observations and questions:
Create a Flow that will enable our team to address or copy an e-mail to a Distribution List (firstname.lastname@example.org), after which the contents of the email will be automatically published onto our company SharePoint. An Announcement page has been created on SharePoint, and the page will contain an Announcement List, on which employees can view most recent as well as previous announcements in reverse chronological order. Upon successfully posting to SharePoint, an e-mail would be sent out to another Distribution List (email@example.com) which will notify everyone of the new announcement and have the (static) link to the SharePoint included.
This is the Flow created from my attempt:
Thus far, I have not been able to get this to create any item on the SharePoint list. The Flow itself does not show history of failed attemps for some reason. My thinking is that it may have something to do with trying to use a Distribution List as the triggering e-mail? The trigger is set to activate when an e-mail is addressed to the Distribution List. Prior to this, experimenting with the conditions would result in the Flow activating and showing Successful, but it counts as successful because the Flow does trigger, but it fails to create the list item and terminates.
I hope I've provided enough details, thank you in advance for any feedback.
Please share a full screenshot of your flow with configuration details with me?
Could you please share more screenshot or details about the flow run history when the flow run failed to create any item on the SharePoint list?
Please share more details so we would try to provide a proper workaround for you.
Thank you so much for responding!
Please refer to expanded screenshot, I had to crop and append to one image to fit:
I'm tied up at the moment but when I get the chance I will try triggering it a few more times and see if anything has changed, thank you!
