Help using Update Row with Excel when receive an email

This may not be possible but, I would like to have a new email trigger go to an excel list of students and update whether or not a specific person has submitted a document.

 

Is it possible to use Row ID to compare the from email to a specific column, and then in that row use the "has attachement" as whether or not they submitted a document?

 

Thanks

Re: Help using Update Row with Excel when receive an email

Hi @dziubla,

 

I could only think out the following scenario:

First, add the "When new Email arrives" trigger, then add the Excel Get Rows Action;

Second, add a condition to check if the "Subject" Content matches the one stored in Excel Student Name columns.

Third, if Condition 1 matchs, under the YES Field, add another condition to check if the email have attachments.

If condition 2 matchs, under hte YES field, add the Excel Update Row action.

Note:

Using Excel in MIcrosoft Flow would require there are tables already formatted (Along with the corresponding columns defined), for the Email Dynamic content generated from Microsoft Flow, there is no field could be used to check the user name, 

we could specify the Email Subject with the corresponding Student name, so that we could use the Subject field to filter the email.

 

Currenlty there are some issues when using condition with Excel Get Rows. I tried to create a flow and it failed.

I will make another test.

If you have any further questions, please feel free to post back.

Re: Help using Update Row with Excel when receive an email

Thank you!

this was awesome and actually helped me see the syntax used with flow.  I was able to extrapolate this was a sharepoint list in the same fashion.
