How to pull three attachments from two Forms to one SharePoint Item

Hey all!

 

Here is a basic outline of the flow I am trying to create, with the bolded step being where I am having trouble:

 

1) User 1 completes a Form that has a required attachment.

2) A new item is created in the appropriate SharePoint list with the attachment.

3) An automated email is sent to two internal references, Users 2 and 3, that has a link to a Form that allows them to submit reference letters.

4) *These reference letters are added to the existing SharePoint item for User 1*

 

I can get attachments from Forms added into SharePoint, but only as a part of a flow where they are attached to a new item, but I can't seem update the item or otherwise link the two new attachments to the existing list item.

 

Any help or examples would be much appreciated!

Solved my own question! So here it is if anyone else is struggling.

 

Had the second two form attachments route to a separate list, then used the "Get items" function to pull info from the list that I wanted to attach them to. Then I used to condition to match the name of User 1 to the name of the person Users 2 and 3 were submitting for, allowing me to attach their letters to the original item with the same process you would normally use to pull an attachment from a Form to a SharePoint item.

I know that might not be super clear--I'm still learning and so not very great at explaining. If you need help, feel free to shoot me a message! 🙂
