I am relatively new to Flow ,but have created several in the past though they have all been pretty basic. I am trying to create a workflow for document approvals. What I want to do is the following.
Where I am having difficulties is how to have a trigger for "When a file is created" and attach that file to an email, but also get the "Modified By" email address for the file uploaded in step 2. I hope this makes sense, any tips or ideas on how this might be able to be accomplished is greatly appreciated.
@Anonymous- is there any link between the files uploaded in step 1 and step 2? For example, do users have to select the file in list 1 from a lookup column when uploading their file to list 2? Is there any field that is common between the two? Without that, I don't know how you can reach your goal.
Hi Scott, no they do not as of now. However I am open to other workflows. Would you be able to describe how the lookup columns might work? I have not used them before.
Can you tell me how you know who gets the email in step 2?
Can you describe or post the columns in your libraries? Screen shot?
My apologies for my ignorance as I do not know what you mean when you refer to columns in the library. The response email in step 2 will always go to the same person. I am attaching a screenshot of the flow in that step.
The workflow I envisoned is that
Again, I am open to changing the process/workflow to fit what is possible in flow. However, the above is what I was originally envisioning.
