Outlook mail + attachments to SharePoint list

I want to create a SharePoint (Online) list item when a specific Outlook mailbox receives an email. The list item created should include the mail's sender, the subject and any possible attachments . For this, I have three columns: Sender, Subject, Attachment.

 

I can easily enough have Flow fill out the Sender and the Subject fields, but cannot for the life of me figure out how to have it add the attachments. I can't even figure out, if it is at all possible yet.

 

do know that I can easily copy attachments to a documents library, but then I can't get Flow to include Sender and Subject. And I really do need all three of them.

 

So, any (non-code) advice on how to add mail sender, subject and attachment to a SharePoint list?

 

I know this forum has been asked this (or similar) question many times in the past, but I haven't found a solution yet. Thanks!

Re: Outlook mail + attachments to SharePoint list

Hi @ClausTurbine,

 

Have you tried to use Add attachment action in SharePoint connector?

I have made a test on my side and the flow works well. Please take a try with the following workaround:

Thanks, Barry. It worked! Smiley Happy

 

I had actually tried that Flow setup before, but must have missed something. 

 

Thank you.
