How to inform the creator of an item, when somebody deletes it?

Hey there,

if someone deletes a list item (by accident), the person who created it should receive a notification. Do you have an idea for that?

 

Trigger "if an item is deleted" > ?

- "get item" surely does not work

- "send mail" does not work, as I am only able to get the person who deleted the item rather than the person who created it.

 

Thank you very much

Johannes

Thank you for your reply. I just got help from a blog, which describes a solution via "send an HTTP request to SharePoint", which I think will help: https://veenstra.me.uk/2019/07/01/inform-authors-when-a-document-is-deleted-from-sharepoint-with-mic...

Hi @woolee ,

 

Currently there are no properties available to find the created by from 'When an item is deleted' flow step.

 

Another work around is:

 

1. Create an Excel sheet under a onedrive or database of your choice which supports flow.

2. Excel sheet will have two columns. List Id and Created by.

3. When ever a list gets created update the new id and created by.

4. When a list gets deleted use the excel sheet to query the list by id.

5. Send email to original owner who created the list.

6. Delete the row from Excel sheet.
