Is there a particular way to use actionable messages via email in Office 365 ( through Flow ) and have the responses sent back to a SharePoint list?

I have been checking out using actionable messages via Outlook through an action in Flow and it looks great however when asking a yes or no, an approval, a comment, etc from within the email, can the data retrieved be sent back to a SharePoint list and if so, how?

Thanks in advance for any help.

You mean design your own customized Adaptive Cards, right? If so, the answer is yes but please note there are several limitations on Outlook side

So, action Submit is no supported

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/outlook/actionable-messages/adaptive-card#adaptive-card-features-no...

...but you can use instead action HTTP

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/outlook/actionable-messages/adaptive-card#actionhttp

 

So you can design a flow listening your Adaptive Card HTTP action requests... you will need to start with the Request  (PREMIUM) trigger. This trigger exposes an HTTP endpoint that can be called to kick off the flow.

 

Hope this helps

Hello,

Unfortunately the action ‘Send an email with options’ is limited in what you can grab from results.

I can suggest 2 options:
1) Have a MS form this form can be sent via a link from an email. And the responses can easily be saved to any data source. Including SharePoint.

2) Would approvals in Flow be something that can solve your business needs? You can setup custom responses. These responses can also be easily saved in any data source.
