Help building Flow to get response content from Microsoft Forms into a new OneNote page

Hello!  I am trying to build a Flow for the first time and am stuck building it out so that the full content from the Microsoft Form response transfers over into/creates a new page in my OneNote Notebook.  I tried using a template which only timestamps and indicates a response was received- doesn't actually include the content.  Tried searching for help and found a way to build a flow to create an HTML Table in OneNote which doesn't seem to make sense for my response data (it is a survey requesting a meeting for help on specific challenges-- pretty detailed responses on a 14-item Form survey). 

 

Your help is appreciated!

Ah, got it...ok.  So, OneNote formats the posts using HTML (check this article from Prarie Developer)  so you can use that to (hopefully) format your post from within Flow.

If you're not familiar with HTML, there are a bunch of online editors that you can use to build your document and it shows the code on the side.  Here's one I found.  I would just put some kind of weird character around the 'dynamic value' you want, and then replace the phrase and weird characters with the actual dynamic value when you drop it into Flow.

If you already know HTML, then you're off to the races!  But I don't, so that's how I would do it Smiley Happy

Hi there!  This is the weird thing about the Forms connector, but after you have the trigger that a response was submitted, you'll want to add an action "Get Response Details".  This will get the detail I think you are looking for.

 

It also might kick off an Apply to Each loop, but don't panic.  Just do your OneNote actions inside that loop and you should be fine.

 

Keep us posted.

Thanks for the advice.  I'm getting close but not there yet.  Currently it is sending the content from the Form to OneNote but my latest issue is that it appears all jumbled together into one long paragraph (vs. separate lines for each response).  Any tips to separate out each question for separate, spaced out responses so they are easy to view by the committe who'll use the data?  Thank you again!

You bet.  When you're adding the stuff to OneNote, try adding spaces or returns in between each of the response fields (The dynamic values).  You can use whatever you'd like, but here's an example of one I did for events:

So here's what I have input for OneNote:

I hit "return" to space out each line of data/separate question, however here is how it shows up in OneNote:

This was super helpful and I am *almost* there with getting it how I want it.  The only remaining glitch is that if multiple answers are chosen for a question on Microsoft Forms, they are still being lumped together (delineated in brackets with quotation marks in between).  I'd love for them to be listed out (hit return in between each response item even if there are multiple selected responses per question) so they are more easily readable. Here's what it is creating now as an example:

Hi @edgonzales  & @Anonymous ,

 

I did tried to create some text in one note (Business) without the HTML tags and it did displayed with correct formatting (Spaces, carriage return etc.)

 

I did also tried with HTML tags but it displayed the text with HTML tags.

 

Let me know how it goes? 

 

Thanks

Hello!  I apologize I have been out of the office for a bit but am back to working on this project.  I still am stuck with my most recent issue around formatting (see my previous post and screenshots about brackets and quotation marks).  I tried combing through the suggested thread about replacing characters you cited but I'm afraid my skills (or lack thereof) are getting in the way of me understanding how to apply that to my flow.  I do not have an "input" chunk within my flow like the one that is referenced in the thread.  Any further help would be greatly appreciated.  

Hi @Anonymous ,

 

Here is what you need to do.

 

1. Add a flow action before "Create page in a section" (OneNote) called "Get response details" (Form). See the link which mentioned by @v-bacao-msft 

 

2. Once you added the flow action ("Get response details") then name the 'FormId' as 'MultiValueText' and map the 'Response Id' to 'Please endores your reason(s) for this MTSS request'.

 

3. Next we need to format the mutli selected values.

So in your example ["Consult for academic progress or learning issues", "Consult for addressing challenging behaviors"]

 

First we need to replace the the square brackets, double quotations and add a carriage return instead of the commas so that it will display line by line.

 

To do this add a new flow step "Compose" below "Get response details". click the Inputs text box then on your right handside you get Dynamics content and Expression tab menu.

 

Under the expression tab add the below replace functions which will remove [" character.

 

replace( , '["', '')

 

Once you added the function then insert your cursor after 'replace(' statement. See the link demo and add the form reponse object 'Reason for MTSS request'.

 

Try this and see whether it replaces the [" character.

 

Once you done then edit the flow and extend the replace function to replace ]" and comma to replace with carriage return character which I think '\n'.

 

Yes I know it is a bit complicated. That's the reason I mentioned to try only one replace expression and see the results. Then you can extend it one at a time.

 

If you need any more help let me know.

I greatly appreciate the people trying to offer detailed support but I think what I need is somebody to help me live/in real time.  I get stuck after the second step you describe of adding a new action to "get response details" inserted before creating a page in OneNote-- do you mean add a second "get response details" action (it populates automatically as "Get response details 2" since I already have the first one created (from the template).  Then, I get stuck on the next step as it won't give me options to "map to 'please endorse your reason...." for Response ID.  When I etner Form ID: MultiValueText it requires I choose from a drop-down menu or "enter custom value" so I selected "enter custom value."  Not sure if that is right or wrong.  Then the options for Response ID automatically reduce down to just one option of "List of response notifications Response ID."  Eesh. This is becoming more of a headache than it seems it should be.  Perhaps I should stop pursuing this Flow/automation project and go back to just manually copying over the survey responses into OneNote.  Again, all of your support is greatly appreciated but the process of getting help through detailed written-out multi-step directions is not very helpful in the realm of user support for "regular" folks like myself.  😞    Wish this software was more accessible to regular clientele.

Hi @Anonymous ,

 

You can skip the step 2 add add the compose action which I mentioned in step 3. Not sure how we can show this as live. You need skype or teamviewer software to share the screen. 

 

Thanks

Microsoft Power Up program unveils new curriculum and more

  New engaging and cohesive Power Up curriculum The Microsoft Power Up Program – a self-paced upskilling program, launched in 2022 to help non-technical professionals gain marketable skills using the Microsoft Power Platform – takes learning to the next level with a cohesive video-based curriculum that spans only seven weeks.

Each course follows the same business through real-world scenarios with demos and hands-on exercises for learners to gain skills and build solutions using Power Apps, Power Automate and Power BI. This structured approach not only enhances comprehension but also equips learners with tangible skills that can be applied immediately in their professional endeavors. By focusing on key areas, the program has been shortened from 12 weeks to seven, saving valuable time without sacrificing quality. Special thanks go to Microsoft Power Platform advocates, April Dunnam and Renee Noble who shared their expertise and to Power Up Program champs who contributed with feedback and reviews over the last 1+ year to make this significant improvement.   Easy access to a comprehensive Development Environment In addition, the program now offers simplified and instant access to a comprehensive development environment for Power Up Program learners to explore and experiment with the Power Platform in a sandbox environment, fostering creativity and innovation.     Introducing App-In-A-Day (AIAD) workshops for Power Up learners As an added incentive, participants of the Microsoft Power Up Program can now sign up for partner-led “App in a Day” virtual workshops. These workshops, conducted by industry experts and Microsoft partners, provide invaluable insights and practical guidance to supplement the core curriculum. By attending these workshops, learners can gain deeper insights into application development and further enhance their skills in leveraging the Power Platform for business solutions. A big shout to our partners that are supporting the Power Up Program and delivering these AIAD workshops: Advaiya, Almato AG, Braintree, Kaispe, Koenig Solutions, PowerApps 911, Pragmatic Works, Smart Consulting.   These enhancements introduced to the Microsoft Power Up Program mark a significant milestone in the ongoing quest to empower individuals with the skills needed to thrive in today’s digital economy. By embracing video-based learning, streamlining the curriculum, and offering personalized experiences, the program continues to set new standards of excellence in virtual education.
